Audi RS4 Avant review – MPG and running cost

MPG is rated in the high-20s range, which is totally doable, and relatively reasonable considering the punch

Evo rating
Price
from £61,625

An advantage of the RS4’s relatively small body, engine and low (relative) power figure is that its quoted 30-ish MPG is entirely achievable on a daily mix of driving, even with a few heavy throttle applications thrown in. 

The RS4’s footprint is rather chunky with 275-section tyres all-round, it’s got some aggressive geometry, and a pretty even spread of power delivery that will make tyre bills more substantial than with a normal A4. That said, BMW M3 and Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio owners will be delighted with the savings.
