You'll remember our driving impression of Audi's uber-fast wagon, the RS4 earlier in 2019. Well, over in Europe Audi has updated the practical performance car with some changes to the exterior and interior.   

Ingolstadt says the RS4's grille is wider and flatter than the normal A4 model and closely-linked to the recently-unveiled RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback.

It sports new LED headlights (Matrix LEDs are optional) and new LED design at the ear. You'll notice a new front bumper and a bonnet slit on its lower section.

The 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine remains untouched with maximum power at 331kW and 600Nm, with a claimed 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds and onto a limited top speed of 250km/h. The optional Dynamic Package elevates that to 280km/h.  

Inside, there's an updated MMI system, with the updated model benefiting from a standard 25cm infotainment system in conjunction with the 31cm clean and colour-rich Virtual Cockpit Display ahead of the driver. 

There's no word on when the upcoming RS4 Avant will make its local debut.

Audi South Africa will debut the updated A4, Q7, new Q3 Sportback, updated R8, new SQ8, A6 and updated TTRS in the first half of 2020.
