Audi just took the wraps off the 2016 A4 but that hasn't stopped Quattro GmbH boss Heinz Hollerweger from revealing new details about the upcoming RS4 Avant.

Speaking to Car & Driver, Hollerweger confirmed the model will be "launched relatively early in the production cycle" and it will feature a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that develops more than 420 bhp (313 kW).

While Americans were denied the last RS4 Avant, Hollerweger said "The U.S. is changing and there is more demand there [for wagons], so maybe that will change."  Even if the RS4 Avant doesn't make it stateside, the executive hinted the next-generation RS5 Sportback could eventually come to America.
