So, the ultimate question: to RS or not to be? The standard e-tron GT may be the way to go. The base model provides an exhilarating driving experience, luxury features, and ample cargo space. However, the verdict isn't final. The promise of launch control on the RS variant remains an enticing factor. Do you want the ultimate in power and speed, or do you value practicality and cargo space? The current Audi e-tron EV lineup exemplifies Audi’s route and dedication to luxury and performance. Whether you're in the market for a sleek and powerful EV or a versatile family SUV, Audi has something to offer for family that needs an EV with a traditional interior that is not too futuristic.
At first glance, it's hard to distinguish the standard e-tron GT from the RS version. Both models share nearly identical exterior designs. The sleek, aerodynamic lines, Audi's signature grille, and the striking LED lighting are common elements that provide a sense of continuity between the two. Step inside, and the story remains the same, with both models offering the same high-quality, tech-infused interiors. The real differences between the e-tron GT and its RS sibling lie under the hood. The RS variant offers a significant power boost for an extra RM200,000. The standard e-tron GT delivers an already impressive 435 horsepower, but the RS ramps this up to a jaw-dropping 630 horsepower. The power delivery is where the true distinction emerges. The RS version catapults from 0 to 100km/h in a mere 3.3 seconds, leaving the standard e-tron GT in its dust at 4.1 seconds. If speed and acceleration are your primary criteria, the RS variant is undoubtedly tempting. Space and Practicality But there's a catch. The RS variant, in its quest for more power, sacrifices some cargo space. The e-tron GT boasts 350 liters of storage, while the RS offers a slightly less generous 255 liters. If you need more luggage room for your daily life, this might be a critical factor in your decision-making process.
