Audi’s S4 Avant isn’t the premium luxury car you’re used to hearing about. While it may have an understated look, the Audi S4 Avant does feature a powerful engine that is complemented by an array of advanced technologies. But if you want more, you could go and visit ABT Sportsline, which is offering a unique package that breaks the current dynamic limits of the present S4 Avant.
The current Audi S4 Avant is powered by a new turbocharged V6 TFSI engine, replacing the supercharged unit of its predecessors. Serving as the core of the S4 Avant is a recently developed turbocharged V6 engine with petrol direct injection. This 3.0 TFSI V6 powerplant is tuned to deliver 354 PS (349 hp) of max output and 500 Nm (368.8 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available in broad range of engine speeds ranging from 1,300 rpm to 4,500 rpm. Compared to its predecessor, the new turbocharged V6 TFSI engine is more powerful while being lighter and more fuel-efficient. This allows the Audi S4 to dash from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.7 seconds and to reach a top speed that’s electronically limited at 155 mph (250 km/h).
ABT Sportsline, however, thinks that the Audi S4 Avant isn’t powerful and quick enough with its 354 PS of output, 550 Nm of torque and 4.7 seconds of zero-to-62 mph sprint time. This is why the tuner from Germany is kind enough to create a new package that would bump up the performance level of the Audi S4 Avant’s 3.0-liter TFSI V6 petrol engine. This new performance package is designed to increase the max output level of the Audi S4 Avant 354 PS (349 hp) to 425 PS (419 hp). In addition, ABT Sportsline’s new performance package is able to hike the amount of peak torque that the V6 engine could produce from 500 Nm (368.8 lb.-ft.) to 550 Nm (406 lb.-ft.).
Of course, that is not all ABT Sportsline could do. For this particular Audi S4 Avant, ABT Sportsline took the privilege of providing an array of exterior features and elements like the radiator grille attachment, the front apron and fender inserts. These elements should make the Audi S4 Avant look sportier. In addition, ABT Sportsline threw in 'ABT' badges -- in black chrome, shiny chrome or matte black – as well as alloy wheels that are sized 19 inches or 20 inches.
There were no indications that ABT Sportsline tweaked the roomy interior of the Audi S4 Avant which is large enough to accommodate up to five passengers. In terms of luggage space, the Audi S4 Avant could provide between 505 liters and 1,510 liters of cargo room, depending on how the rear backrests are positioned. The car’s S sport seats are covered in Pearl Nappa leather and Alcantara and feature integrated headrests, adjustable side sections, and a pneumatic massage function.
