Next-gen Audi RS4 to use 6-cylinder engine

The future generation of the Audi RS4 is rumored to be using a six-cylinder turbocharged engine, once the powerful model will be hitting the market.

The German based automaker Audi will follow one of its main competitors when it comes to the future generation of the RS4, the BMW M3/M4 Coupe, as the company is planning to offer a smaller engine for the upcoming vehicle. According to the guys at Auto Guide, the future generation of the Audi RS4 will be using a six-cylinder turbocharged engine. This will bring it closer to the competition as the new M3/M4 Coupe is using a 3.0 liter turbocharged straight-six unit.

The outgoing generation of the Audi RS4 is only offered in an estate (Avant) body style and it has been in production since 2012. The model in question stands at 4,719 mm long, 1,826 mm wide and 1,415 mm tall, riding on a 2,811 mm long wheelbase. The total weight of the car stands at 1,795 kg. Power is being provided by a 4.2 liter V8 engine, hand built, which is rated at 444 HP and 430 Nm of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 4.7 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
