A Closer Look at the Audi RS Models Available Online

Yesterday, Audi Malaysia launched their online showroom along with the Q3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro. They also announced four RS models would be available in Malaysia through the online showroom. No prices were announced, but they did mention the cars could be customised and ordered by Malaysian customers.

By default, the RS vehicles listed have a few things in common. Firstly, they are all configured without a panoramic glass sunroof. This is justified, as Malaysian weather is not conducive to this equipment piece. Even Proton created a version of the CKD X70 Premium without the sunroof in response to complaints.

Another common thread between the RS models is that they feature RS steel brakes instead ceramic brakes. It’s also worth noting that these cars come with some active driver assist systems on the RS 4 and RS 5 like:

  • Audi active lane assist
  • Audi pre sense rear and basic
  • Lane change assistant with exit warning system and rear cross traffic alert
  • Parking aid plus with 360 degree cameras

On the RS 6 and RS 7, you even get Front cross traffic assist and Lane departure warning.

Here’s a closer look at the vehicles that are available.

The RS 4 Avant gets a 2.9L V6 bi-turbo engine with direct fuel injection, turbocharging and Audi valvelift system. An 8-speed tiptronic transmission sends 450hp and 600Nm of torque to all wheels via quattro.
