Avant and RS Q3 prove that a practical, cargo-hauling wagon or crossover can be a lot of fun, even if the road is covered in the wet or white stuff. In the following videos, the two high-performance four-doors demonstrate just how entertaining they can be.

First up is a red RS 4 Avant wagon, which is filmed performing laps around the Red Bull Ring race track in Austria. Background music or narration is absent from the video, which means all you’ll hear is the RS 4’s naturally-aspirated

450-hp 4.2-liter V-8

with its deep growl occasionally accompanied with a pitch-changing “twap” whenever the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is changing gears (oh, and some wind and road noise).  It appears that filming starts off with a dry track, but later on Mother Nature throws in some heavy rain in the mix to test the RS 4’s quattro system, of course. The RS4 performs admirably, but we’ll never know for ourselves since it isn’t offered in the U.S., despite a

surprise appearance at a Cars and Coffee event a few months ago.

The second video features

the RS Q3, which Audi will debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The short clip features the fast crossover speeding through the snow alongside a pack of sled-racing dogs. Unlike the RS 4 Avant’s video, music competes with the RS Q3’s turbocharged, inline-five that produces 306 hp and 310 lb-ft. While


will sell the normal Q3 in the States, it hasn’t yet confirmed whether the RS version will make it to our shores.
