new Audi RS models will be SUVs

new Audi RS models will be SUVsWinkelmann didn’t reveal the identity of any of the models but the Q8 Sport concept unveiled at the Geneva auto show hints that an RS-badged version of the upcoming Q8 SUV is planned. We’ve also heard that an RS Q5 is in the pipeline and according to Car and Driver sources there will be an RS Q7, too. Audi’s recently confirmed Q4 is also a potential recipient of the RS treatment, though the compact SUV isn’t due in standard form until 2019.

This time around, there’s no 3.0-litre turbo diesel version, but Audi Australia has suggested the book isn’t closed on such a model being offered in the future.

Speaking one-on-one with WestWHEELS at the international launch of the new RS3 Sportback and sedan in Oman, Winkelmann said despite performance brands’ tendencies to focus on lap times and engine outputs, he was more interested in RS vehicles being usable on a daily basis rather than just being the fastest or most powerful cars out there.

The Audi Sport brand is looking to double the number of RS models in its lineup by early 2018, and that may scare some buyers into thinking that such vehicles will be watered-down abominations with too much power and harsh driving dynamics. However, as the new RS 3 shows, the automaker can deliver a car that can suit practically any lifestyle or driving preference. And that they can deliver cars that aren’t just fast, but fun too.
