The All-New Audi RS 6 Avant is Coming to America


Wagons have long conjured images of dusty lines of pioneers heading west in the 1800s or big families piling into the family car in the 1950s and ‘60s. Of course, those earlier versions were limited in handling and horsepower, especially the wagon train version.

The wagon is now more of a rocket-sled than a land-schooner. Audi is bringing the RS 6 Avant to the American market in 2020. With an established global fan base, Audi will attempt to gain a foothold for the sleek vehicle in the U.S. Though U.S. performance specs are not yet released, the European version has a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and delivers 600 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. It erupts from zero to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and has a top track speed of over 155 miles per hour.

RS 6 Avant handling and comfort are light years ahead of its wagon ancestors. There are six drive modes which can be activated using the RS Mode steering wheel button. Selections influence engine and transmission management, power steering, suspension, all-wheel steering, sports differential, and engine noise. Power assist directly connect the driver and the road and increase performance and stability.

The stunning exterior of the RS 6 Avant is broader, giving it an athletic, brawny appearance. The single-frame grille is gloss black and side inlets below the LED headlights open up next to the striking, angled bumper. It has a long, straight roofline, flared fenders, a roof edge spoiler, and chrome-colored tailpipes.

The interior is just as sporty with impressive driver-focused technologies. Displays provide information on tire pressure, torque, power output, engine oil temperature, boost pressure, lap times, and acceleration measurements. In fact, the RS monitors g-forces, something earlier wagons didn’t have much need for!
