station wagon, it is but mediocre performance it is anything but. today’s station wagon (or more fancily called ‘estate car’) is not your dad’s kind of wagon – it is pure power with the practicality of space – and with that, makes it a vehicle that anyone would feel proud to be stuffing their weekly groceries with or picking up their kids from school. fitted with a 4.0 TFSI twin-turbo V8 unit that pumps out 560 hp (412 kW) and a whopping 700 Nm (516.29 lb-ft) of torque, the Audi RS 6 Avant gets from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph) but yet, it offers an average fuel consumption of just 9.8 liters per 100 kilometers (24 mpg) – performance figures that befit the ethos of its RS badging. other performance features include an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox, Quattro all-wheel drive system, adaptive air suspension, electronic stabilization control (ESC), large 6-pod brake calipers in a choice of black or red lacquer, 20-inch seven twin-spoke design forged wheels and a body construction that consists of about 20 percent aluminum with numerous components made of high-strength steel. the latter is a contributing factor its lighter weight and hence, an improved power-to-weight ratio that leads to other benefits such as better handling and reduced gas consumption. on the inside, expected to be greeted by a sporty and elegant cockpit with features like flat-bottomed, three spoke multifunction steering wheel, illuminated entry sills, DIS shift light, aluminum and piano finishes, RS sport seats in black Alcantara and leather, three-zone automatic air conditioning, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and a 10-speaker Audi sound system. last but not least, expect to find RS logos slapped around the interior and exterior, reminding everyone that this is not any regular station wagon. clear the jump for a few more look and short clip of the RS 6 in action.
