2012 Audi RS4 Avant Leaked Ahead of Geneva Debut

2012 Audi RS4 Avant Leaked Ahead of Geneva Debut

The new Audi RS4 Avant wasn’t meant to be seen until the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but photos already leaked onto the internet, big surprise.

Much of the wagon’s styling is what we can expect from Audi’s design language, with an elegant yet sporty design. It sports an updated front end featuring a honeycomb grille and larger air intakes.

In the rear, Audi equipped the new RS4 Avant with a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a new rear bumper with a diffuser sporting a pair of exhaust tips. As expected, it also comes with LED-equipped headlights, high-performance brakes, matte aluminum accents, and 19-inch wheels.

It appears that the interior will come with a flat-bottomed steering wheel, carbon fiber trim, and aluminum pedals.

It’s expected that the Audi RS4 Avant will come with a 4.2L V8 powerplant with 444-hp and 317 lb-ft of torque, mated to Audi’s dual-clutch S-tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive system. Our biggest question, however, is still unanswered: will it come to the U.S.? German companies are often hesitant to bring their hatchbacks to American soil, and this doesn’t have much of a reason to be different, but we’re paying attention nonetheless.
