But if you’re looking for an everyday car that can still offer huge performance when you want it, is the RS4 the right choice for you? Stick with Mat and find out!

    Audi should never use a V6 engine! Here it should have been either 5 cylinders or 8 in a V! And it should be more than enough to go on with a 5 cylinder, which they more than 40 years ago, took over 600hp from!

    i like that it is quiter ... it sounds better and it def looks better dan the previous model ... they just should give the option to clear the big scree in to the dashboard as in the A3 ... that's the only issue of the interior

    There comes a time when you have to say enough is enough and stop changing things .This car was perfect about 6 yrs ago and it is getting too complicated and overthought now.

    Mustang much better. .. why ? car is made by reason nothing fake on him.

    How exactly does *Car Wow* save you money over buying from the showroom ??

    Yes bmw and Mercedes are good and everything. But the Audi looks the best. It is the sexiest beast in the arsenal.

    Why don't you show complete videos. First when you showed the brake test. You mixed both shots inside and outside shots that might look cool for Cinematic purposes however for a review video it won't. Rather you should've shown first the inside shot snd then the outside shot. It's a review channel not a channel where your post production editor shows his editing skills. You can contact me I can make this video look like a WB Studios product. Secondly, when car slightly was up in the air both shots were not clear. That shot was taken from a main camera outside too. You didn't showed that too. Carwow I'm really depressed with this. It's a review channel please show complete videos and don't mix and jumble GoPro and Main camera video's together. If you want show them one by one.

    the old one looks better, I like those sharp lights, I like the control of the system more in the old one, the sound is absolutely incomparable. I don't see a reason to go for this one. (Nor the previous one for money purposes :D )

    @carwow Hi Mat, i am after an advise from you. I own a 2019 Q5 Auto and its footrest is bit awkward that it’s sitting far back compared to other pedals and that leaves awkward sitting position while driving, have you ever come across similar issue while test driving any Audi models. When I googled people complain about it in some forums and pages but not sure how genuine so I thought of asking you for a genuine feedback.

    Lovely car. Still, to this day I can't figure out why they stick to the "glued on iPad" style infotainment display on models A4 and lower. I love the way they did it in the A6 and upwards. Is the body really that much narrower?

    Audi seems to give all its enthusiasm into RS6, that car looks absolutely stunning. So when it comes to RS4: "Well, it can't be better than RS6 why should we bother to make it".

  • Jabber 1974
    Jabber 1974

    Audi should team up with an aftermarket exhaust manufacturer to design an OEM exhaust you can have fitted once you have bought the car that does away with the particulate filter and gets the noise back but doesn’t invalidate your warranty and keeps the lease company happy. I put a custom x pipe exhaust on my S5 and it now sounds fantastic but I own the car outright and it’s well out of warranty so have nobody other than me to keep happy.

    Nice but Ugly screen put me off - so I bought an M340i Touring xdrive and saved a bundle. Much better ergonomics. Virtually as quick. Engine better and chipped stage 1 does 462hp and 650NM. lighter and goes better and not even an M3.

  • ncode03

    The -0.1secs is obviously thanks to the bigger rims.

  • 12345moe

    What is audi doing with their alloy wheel designs? They look terrible, do not suit the aesthetics of the car at all

    Pre facelift looks better old mmi click wheel is better also!

  • Chris Njugi

    Drag race, rolling race, brake test and possibly a dyno test of the old one and the face lifted one should be done.
