New Audi RS4 Avant
The RS4 Avant generates its personality from a hand built 4.2-liter V8
engine that produces 450PS ( 331kW / 444 hp ) and 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) of
torque. It allows it to accelerate from 0-100kph (0-62mph) in 4.7 seconds
before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 250kph (155mph).
Drivers looking to take full advantage of the model can request to have the
speed limiter removed to raise the top speed up to 280kph (174 mph).
The performance figures become a little more impressive when you add in the
fuel economy stats. It consumes an average of 11 liters per 100km which is
21.38 mpg in US standards.
2017 MINI Countryman spy video from the Nurburgring
Facelifted about a year ago, the Countryman is already heading towards a
second generation which will come with some significant changes as the new
model will be significantly larger than the current car and is going to use
the UKL1 platform just like the most recent MINI models.
Don't expect a major design change as MINI will take the evolutionary
route, but with a bigger front grille and reshaped headlights. It also
appears to have a more prominent roof-mounted rear spoiler while the
plastic body cladding around the bulging wheel arches remains hidden
underneath the camouflage.
