With the launch in UK market with the saloon segment, Audi has planned to launch their Avant version into the UK markets next April. With the release of this version, the availability of the Audi A4 Cabrio will be reduced. The plans are to introduce a convertible version of the Audi A5 coupe in place of the Cabrio. Also, Audi has made it clear that it will not build more than 1 RS model. So the RS4 may be delayed for some time now. Audi has launched a new model of the life cycle, and they would like to wait for at least two more years before launching the RS series.

But there can always be a change in the plan. Replacing the popular A4 Cabrio with the new series A5 will result in no more sales of the RS4 Cabrio, an important model that has been high in sales in the US markets. Nonetheless, there are small similarities and differences between the models, which you can decide on based on personal preference.
