It is located in the centre of the instrument panel and tilted slightly towards the driver. The touch-sensitive screen displays a high-resolution graphic animation of an RS Avant to welcome the driver. The MMI touch display provides acoustic feedback and takes over the functions of the previous rotary pushbutton on the centre console. The driver can use the RS monitor to call up as overview of drive system component temperatures, maximum g-forces and information regarding tire pressures and temperatures. In the Audi virtual cockpit, special RS displays provide information on tire pressure, torque, power output, engine oil temperature, lap timings, acceleration measurements and g-forces.

    4. Smaller V6 Heart

    The 2020 Audi RS4 Avant is powered by a 2.9 TFSI twin-turbo V6 which churns out 444 BHP and 600 Nm of peak torque. This allows the Audi RS4 Avant to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds. The new V6 TFSI engine weighs just 182 kilogram, which is 31 kilogram less than the V8 engine in the predecessor model from 2012. The top speed can be increased from 250 km/h to 280 km/h. 

    The power of the 2.9 TFSI flows to the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via the sporty eight-speed tiptronic. In regular driving, the system delivers more power to the rear axle. Its purely mechanical center differential directs 60 percent of the torque to the rear axle and 40 percent to the front. If undesired slip occurs at one axle, most of the power is automatically and rapidly redirected to the other axle-up to 70 percent to the front or up to 85 percent to the rear axle. The high locking values enables a clearly defined torque distribution and highly precise interaction with the control systems of the ESC and wheel-selective torque control. 

    5. New Packages
