MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM - The formidable Audi RS 4 Avant has captured the imagination of readers to such an extent over the past year that it has been voted Most Popular High Performance Car in the 2013 Honest John Awards, based on sheer volume of page views.

Users of the leading consumer website - which logs around 1.5 million hits each month - registered the highest number of page views for the RS 4, measured between April 2012 and April 2013, resulting in a category win for the absorbing eight-cylinder super Avant.

Dan Harrison, Editor of, commented: “While crossovers and family hatchbacks may seem the obviously popular markets, performance and sports cars take a big share of views on – usually the more powerful the better.

“And it’s easy to see why the thunderously quick Audi RS 4 Avant has proved so popular. A Big V8 engine, 450hp and quattro all-wheel-drive along with estate car practicality make it unique. That combination certainly appeals to our users who clearly love it.”

Commenting on the award, Director of Audi UK, Martin Sander said: “We are very proud of the RS 4 Avant, and very pleased that it has proved to be such a hit with the knowledgeable and well informed readers of the respected Honest John website. The enthusiasm of audiences like these has of course been a key factor in the success of our RS range, and it’s something that we value highly.”
