Uncompromisingly sporty – the new Audi RS 6 Avant
Before we get underway with our test drive review, I thought I’d let this video give you a little adrenaline rush 😉
The new Audi RS 6 Avant unites 560 hp of power and 700 Nm of torque with unrestricted practicality for everyday use and leisure. The high-performance Avant follows the Audi RS 4 Avant as the second estate model in Audi’s Middle East portfolio.
The new Audi RS 6 Avant is self-assured and powerful. Two twin-scroll turbochargers ensure that considerable torque is generated quickly. This large Avant accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. How’s this though? On request, Audi will increase the car’s top speed from 280 km/h to, wait for it…305 km/h. I love Dubai!
Average fuel consumption is 9.8 liters per 100 kilometers – 30 percent less than the previous model. The cylinder on demand (COD) system reduces standard fuel consumption by around five percent; driving at moderate speeds can achieve up to twelve percent.
The exterior of this high-performance Avant includes matt aluminum applications, a high-gloss black protective grille, the bumpers, extensions on the sills and wheel arches. An RS roof spoiler, a diffuser and the RS exhaust system’s two tailpipes make it clear that the RS 6 Avant is the sporty high-end vehicle of this model line. The RS Sport exhaust system creates an even more distinctive sound profile. LED headlights, LED rear lights as well as servo closing doors and an electronic boot lid with foot sensor are standard in the Middle East.
The interior of the new Audi RS 6 Avant is dominated by sporty black. The instrument dials are white and the needles red. The RS-specific flat-bottomed, three-spoke leather sport steering wheel, trim elements in aluminum look or Piano finish, illuminated door sill trims with RS 6 badges and decorative carbon inlays accentuate the look. RS sport seats with pronounced side bolsters and integrated head restraints are standard. The seats are covered in Valcona leather or a combination of Alcantara and leather. The center sections featuring diamond or honeycomb quilting are a highlight.
