If you'd be so kind as to whitelist our site, we promise to keep bringing you great content. The loading width in the luggage compartment is now 1. The standard height-adjustable air suspension, with electronically controlled damping, is the first Audi air suspension capable of dealing with speeds up to 190 mph and features 50 percent stiffer spring rates than used in the standard A6 Avant. Only the roof, front doors and tailgate are shared with the regular A6 Avant. However, my ideal setup would also include the optional dynamic rear-wheel steering system, which turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction at slow speeds to reduce the turning circle and deliver better maneuverability around town. Pricing has yet to be set, but expect a small increase over the £79,470 of the previous model.

NEW Audi RS6 Avant 2020

Audi rs6 2020

Here are five things to know about Germany's latest offering in the gorgeously aggressive, needlessly fast super wagon segment. As you'd expect from a fast Audi, power is routed to all four corners through an eight-speed automatic and the company's Quattro all-wheel drive system, while brake-based torque vectoring and an optional Quattro sport differential adds the nuance of controlling power at each individual wheel. We were just settling in, about to catch up on some light reading over afternoon tea, and then bam! These massive stoppers—the front rotors are 17. Top speed sits at 155 mph but, at least on the other side of the Atlantic, maximum velocity can be bumped to 174 mph if you spec the optional Dynamic package, or 190 mph with the Dynamic Plus package. Back to back on the same exact roads, where curves are tight and blind turns are bumpy with off-camber surfaces and gradient changes all around, I compared both suspension systems head to head. Carbon-ceramic brakes are available as an option, with the choice of red, gray, or black calipers.

With the Avant, you can drop the kids off at school, take your spouse shopping, and have a blast on the track without switching cars. That said, you can't fit quite as much shopping as you can in a wagon. At faster speeds, the rear wheels will turn by as much as 2 degrees in the same direction to enhance stability, particularly during fast changes of direction. This reduces the pitch and roll movements as you attack a winding corner at speed. Audi currently sells no wagons in the U. The standard steel brakes can be upgraded to ceramic discs. Allow the press release to explain.

2020 Audi RS6 Avant Review: The Stupid Fast Station Wagon America's Been Waiting For

Audi rs6 2020

Okay, so it isn't quite as powerful as the 603-hp E63 S or the 667-hp Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid but it should be more than enough grunt for a car that doesn't look out of place unloading humans in the daily Montessori drop-off procession. It's certainly a good-looking wagon, although I'm not nuts about the silver exterior detailing, especially the swoopy tacked-on bit affixed to the rear bumper. It looks elegant, aggressive, and sophisticated. It picked the perfect time for it, too. That would be Avant, as in a wagon, and the United States, a country where wagons aren't popular and companies don't sell them. Still, just because something is good doesn't mean we Americans will buy it.

The powertrain produces 591bhp — up from the 552bhp of the previous standard model but slightly below the 596bhp offered by the 2016 Performance variant — with 590lb ft available between 2100rpm and 4500rpm. We notice you're using an ad blocker. These sort of cars are probably the most complete all rounders available, supercar performance with genuine everyday practicality and useability. The dampers are connected to each other via diagonal oil lines and a central valve to regulate the oil flow. That makes them sound less fancy, but au contraire. It just keeps getting cooler, right? But ads are also how we keep the garage doors open and the lights on here at Autoblog - and keep our stories free for you and for everyone. The shift light display prompts the driver to upshift when the maximum engine speed is reached.

Overall, it's a very aggressive yet elegant design. They flank a three-dimensional honeycomb Singleframe grille in gloss black. But Audi will thankfully offer other trim color options, including black and carbon fiber. Maybe it has something to do with the larger and wider Singleframe grille, or the flared wheel arches which extend 1. As well as adjusting the engine and handling responses, they also enable bespoke information on the Virtual Cockpit system. Consisting of three-stage adjustable dampers and steel springs, the firmer ride quality ultimately leads to better handling.
