What's happened to the Audi S4 Avant?

Just amusing myself with possible 340 replacements and cannot find the S4 estate on the Audi configurator.
Has it been discontinued or a victim of the emissions thingy that VAG are having problems with?
Highest output petrol engine is the 190 BHP

Think I read somewhere a while back that details of updated S4 /RS4 to be announced Spring 2019, so I guess available around summer.

Was considering one for a while, but hadn't got my act together before end April 2018, which seems to have been the cutoff time before production stopped.

Think it would have been too small anyway, so not the end of the world

Mine is a Sept 17 car, built in August. I did buy stock though as it was near enough to speci would have chosen (and indeed less some of the more unnecessary extras that I would have ticked because I could...).

Over 30 on auto trader with less than 100 miles on clock, including 68 plates...

Cheers for the info but the Q5 look does nothing for me. More an estate man.

Me too if I am honest but an ageing back (we’ll all of me...) prefers the higher seating position...

And they can look ok...

Edit to add - one S4 Avant on autotrader, registered in Sept, metallic white, high spec, Watford...

Wow, surprised that many. SQ5 never appealed, so I didn't look that closely, but when I was looking at the S4 early last year remember people saying how they could no longer order them

I was a major contributor to it when my car kept getting delayed!



Did you actually do the maths on my post?

I'm guessing not!

Think Audi shipped and registered all the non customer cars in advance of the deadline for WLTP.....

Makes me glad I extended my s5 lease to 36 months! Hard to beat as a package - would miss the sounds
