Audi RS 4 Avant and RS 5 get Competition packages, promises intense exhaust note
German luxury car major Audi has made its RS4, RS5 Coupe and RS5 Sportback even more potent by introducing Competition and Competition Plus packages. Available in the Europen market, the Competition and Competition Plus packages for the Audi cars come with various upgrades, making them more performance-oriented.
The Competition package comes as the starting point of these updates. The upgrades include both cosmetic and mechanical. It comes with RS Sports Exhaust System Plus with dual wide-diameter oval-shaped exhaust pipes. Audi claims the resulting exhaust notes are more intense thanks to the Competition package. Also, the package claims to have reduced eight kilograms of sound deadening measure between the engine compartment and interior. This means the cabin occupants of the cars can hear more of the twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 engine.
Mechanically as well, there are some changes. The Competition package also has tweaked engine and transmission control software. This results in quicker gear shifts. Also, there are larger differences between the various driving modes. The performance enhancement made through the software tweaks increases the top speed limit for the cars to 290 kmph.
