The fourth estate

Audi RS4 reveiwed by Chris Harris

Last week we brought you the early thoughts of the motoring press on the latest version of the Audi RS4. Now it’s the turn of Chris Harris in video form, who has just filed his online review for Drive following the European press launch.

Harris starts by going back to the B5 RS4, then the B7 model, before seeing how the new B8 RS4 sits alongside those that have gone before it. We think he should have included the RS2 Avant as well—the true origin of the RS4—but can understand why he didn’t.

We get presented with a great sense of what the earlier RS4s did well and what they did poorly. Indeed, for a while there, we see Harris performing the role of used car salesman rather well. Similarly, a wide range of feedback is given by Harris on the new car. Again, negative aspects are balanced with positive thoughts. In the true sense of the word, this is a great review.

However, adding further modern day context, Harris brought along a fourth estate to the party. Watch and enjoy!
