The Legendary Audi RS6 Avant Is Arriving Soon to the U.S.


Audi recently announced that the Audi RS6 Avant is coming to the U.S. market.  For drivers that have been waiting for a high-performance wagon, this is the vehicle you have been waiting for.  In fact, the RS6 Avant has been long sought after.  This is the first time in Audi's 25-year history in the U.S. the sports wagon will be available to the U.S. market.  Expected to go on sale as a 2020 model, drivers can look forward to a test drive as early as spring of next year. 


An Eye-Catching Exterior

The base of the RS6 Avant is the same as the base A6 Avant.  With the front doors, roof and tailgate styling directly carried over and unchanged.  However, everything else the RS6 boasts is unique only to the RS6.   The grille has an intricate honeycomb-like styling in a glossy black, while the bumper models after the Audi R8 supercar.  Bold headlight styling is reflective of the A7, which invites the optional RS Matrix LED laser light with darkened rim upgrades. 


The RS6 Avant Interior 

As to be expected, the interior of the RS6 Avant features all premium materials, including options for an RS-embossed black pearl Nappa leather, which will ensure a smooth, comfortable and luxurious ride. Drivers can also expect heated and cooled seats trimmed in Valcona leather - adding the layers of luxury inside this high performing ride.  Audi has also included its MMI dual-touchscreen system and Virtual Cockpit digital instrument panel that bring entertainment and safety features seamlessly to the driver's attention.  The RS monitor display also provides performance information, such as torque and power output, engine oil temperature, and boost pressure.  Finally, the sport steering wheel offers RS1 and RS2 buttons, that allows the driver to simply switch between RS drive modes, including Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Efficiency.


The Power of Audi in the RS6 Avant

The power of Audi is what drivers have been waiting for in the performance wagon segment.  The RS6 Avant is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 partnered with a 48-volt hybrid system.  Drivers can expect 591 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft of torque.  Audi has reported the RS6 Avant to go from zero-to-60 mph in 3.6 seconds and over 120 mph in 12.0 seconds.   With the Dynamic Package Plus, the RS6 Avant can hit 190mph!  The standard Dynamic package, top speeds max out at 174 mph, while the standard models cap out at 155 mph. Regardless of the model or the upgrades, you will get the power, speed and driver experience that Audi is known for.
