    Audi has lost their way. Can't see it happening but the RS4 is legendary!

    It's not coming, we'll only get the RS5 Sportback. If the RS4 Avant was coming here, we would have bought that instead of the AllRoad.

    But RS4 Avant much sexier lines. I would upgrade in a heartbeat if that came to Canada.

    I actually like the green. But I'd get nardo.

    Avant would be the obvious choice. But these sportback look great on the road

    The RS5 sportbacks are pretty nice but might as well spend a little more and get the RS7 at that point.

    The USA has WAY too big of a hard-on for SUV's and sedans, and we usually get what they get, so that is why almost none of the good hatches make it over here. Rare exceptions are cars like the E63 AMG Estate and Civic Type R but for the most part we don't even get the hatches, let alone the hot hatches. My 'realistic' dream car is an RS3 avant and it will never come here.

    ya, except the Rs7 is pretty old at this point...and I dont need something that big anymore. (Which is why I'm driving a GLA instead of an E63 Wagon)

    Sportback or coupe? I only see the green and the grey coupe on the website.

    Really happy with the sportback so far. The sloping roof does decrease the trunk room somewhat as compared to the avant but I can sacrifice that for good look. The new A7 looks nice but I'm not sure about all the touch screen control. Plus it's getting a bit porky for my preference. RS is nice if money is no problem. Otherwise I find the S plenty enough for daily driving. It's difficult enough as is to find opportunity to go full throttle for a brief moment.

    Sports back. When I spoke them in mid December I was told that there is one on the way to the dealership ,Unless it is sold already.

    Who knew?

    Know this is probably too cheap for you Buster but I have been combing over info on the C43 wagon, looks like Selenite Grey Magno is available.

    My only issue is the digital dash cluster is tied with the ugly ass new Multi-bean headlight as tech package.

    Lol what? You’ll put a deposit down for an RA4 avant- that is about 16” longer than the RS7 but your saying you don’t need anything big? The RS7 might be 5 years old now but it’s still one of the best looking sedans on the market inside and out. The only thing that’s dated on it is that they haven’t changed the RS7 to the virtual cockpit yet and some people actually prefer the analog dials.

    i thought the Rs5 avant was 185 inches vs the RS7 which is 195 or something?

    Actually I think your right. RS7 is about 4 inches longer. Finding it hard to believe because the new allroad feels way bigger than an RS7.

    I prefer the look of current gen RS7 vs next Gen. Not very fond of all those touch screens in the new one either.

    But RS7 is definitely bigger:

    RS7: 197x75, wheelbase 115
    RS4: 188x73, wheelbase 111
    RS5: 185x73, wheelbase 110
