So no. But it is trying to be the same thing.

It is also rather bespoke for that price.
You had originally stated:

"Yet what we are basically talking about here is the Volvo V60 Polestar with the turbo inline-6. And who here ran out and bought one of those?"

Insinuating that because that Volvo POS isn't selling that an RS4 Avant would not either. .. I am fairly certain that there would be a lot more demand for the Audi even at its significantly higher price point. At any rate when an RS6 and RS4 Avant become available Stateside, then I would buy one for myself and one for my wife. Guaranteed two sales for those two Audi products in my household.

I cordially invite that Volvo to Fuk all the way off. It's no where near in the same league as the Audi.

While it still wont be in the same league the 2019 V60 should be on par with an S4.

Yup I'll take the C63 all day. Blows my mind why anyone would take an RS4/RS5 over the equivalent C63. I guess all the RS4/RS5 has left is Mercedes' refusal to include AWD in the C63 so far...

Audi can't even win it's own segment.

But interiors doe.

Yes, but build quality:

I'm really disappointed with the build quality of my S550 which groans and creaks like an old ship.

That is anecdotal evidence... from cars made 2 years apart, in different countries, in different segments, with unknown mileage and usage differentials. The Audi you are referencing specifically the Q7 is a platform shared with Porsche, Bentley and Lamborghini on their signifigantly upmarket products which could be the reason for the superior build quality in that model alone, and is irrelevant to a platform like the A4/A6 which is not shared with upmarket cars and marquees.
