While Americans may not get the blister-flared Audi RS 4 Avant or precious few Avants for that matter, those of us in the States still do get the A4 allroad. Given its wagon shape and its own flared allroad style body kit, this particular car has proven a favorite on the Audi enthusiast scene despite it’s rather conservatively powered 2.0 TFSI only engine status.
