    Audi is really missing the mark with performance cars and offering interesting models in the US what a shame.

    RS4 Avant will become available in China in 2018 (and A4 Avant as well but s4 comes in as sedan). Apparently Audi decides to focus more in Chinese market bc wagon is still very 'new' there. They launched 3 wagon models (A6 allroad, RS6 Avant and A6 Avant) in China in one year to promote brand image.

    It's so sad wagon comes to an end in the US.

    They just need to get over themselves with the wagon snobbery and give us the RS4 sedan, like the S4.

    Yeah, see, I disagree, they just need to get over the idea that we wouldn't buy the RS4 Avant if offered like ROW....

    So I do not have any proof, but I just came from my Audi dealer and the one salesman told me the following, which he claims he was told by AoA yesterday:

    -They are potentially going to offer the RS3 in hatch, pretty much as is, because after the 17/18 models, Audi is realizing its not cost effective to have the RS3 sedan + Hatch.

    -They are planning on bringing the RS4 avant over within 2 years (2019 or 2020 model)

    Now obviously I was giddy at the RS4 news, but I personally find it highly doubtful and he was just giving me a line of shit so I could close the deal we were working on Figured I'd pass it along though just to rile everyone up.

    Not one but two avants? Too good to believe (I don't believe it).

    I do not believe it at all. The only thing that gives me slight pause is the fact that they are bringing the avant to China which leaves a sliver of hope they'll consider it for the US market down the line.

    Actually, they should remember what made the RS cars interesting in the first place, and only offer the RS cars as wagons. Big, fast, obnoxious, middle finger in the air, bike rack on the back, skis and a box on top, immune to weather, freaking wagons... anything else is just what everyone else is making, and not interesting at all.

    I think American consumers are ready for this. I understand Audi's hesitation based on prior sales. I just don't think we Americans are the same muscle-car-loving hee-hawing yokels of yore anymore. We watch anime now. We love us some micro brewery over MGD. The iPhone X, built and designed by Americans, uses animoji as a major selling point for god's sake. ANIMOJI. Let that sink in (it's awesome by the way). We are sensitive and delicate souls. Bring back the avant!
