AUDI RS6 Avant 2013 - 2019

The RS6 Avant was the true greyhound under a station-wagon skin.

It offered the performance of a supercar and the versatility of a family car.

The RS6 was the fastest station-wagon in the world at the time of its launch. It wasn't powered by a Lamborghini engine anymore, but the car-maker installed a Bentley engine under its hood. Moreover, the RS6 was not offered as a sedan.

The Audi A6 Avant was somehow a bland looking car. It wasn't that flamboyant or exclusive. With the RS6 the things were different. It was just like it was transformed all of a sudden from Clark to Superman. The big wheels, enlarged wheel-arches, and an aggressive front bumper confirmed that the car meant business. Xenon plus headlights were standard while LED ones were on the options list. The LED daytime running lights and the LED taillights were standard.

Inside, the RS6 featured standard sport-bucket seats. The upholstery was a combination between Alcantara and leather and the main theme of the interior was black. A specific three-spoke RS steering wheel was installed. A carbon-fiber trim was available at extra cost. There was no problem with room on the back seats and the trunk was big. Not as big as in an E-Class T-Model, but bigger than in a BMW 5-Series Touring.

Under the hood, the RS6 was honored to have the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from the Bentley Continental GT. But while the luxury coupe was offered with 507 hp, the Audi released 53 more horses. Both cars were fitted with the same 8-speed auto, but the station-wagon offered better performances.


Audi RS 6 and RS 7 Performance models boost power to 605 HP

Audi is upping the potency of its already extreme RS 6 Avant and RS 7 by introducing new Performance models that boast increased engine output and numerous RS-spec equipment as standard. The engine remains Audi’s ubiquitous turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, whose output here has been bumped up to 605 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, up from 560 hp and 516 lb-ft in the stock RS 6 and RS 7.

With the new output, the cars will accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds, down from 3.9 seconds for the stock RS 6 and RS 7, and from 0-124 mph in 12.1 seconds, down from 13.5 seconds for the stock models. Top speed is governed to 155 mph but with an available Dynamic Package this figure is lifted to 189.5 mph.

Making up the rest of the drivetrain is an eight-speed automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive system. In normal driving conditions, 60 percent of the drive torque is sent to the rear wheels for a rear-biased feel. RS 6 and RS 7 Performance buyers can also opt for Audi’s Sport Differential which can further split the torque between the rear wheels.

Other performance features include air suspension with adjustable dampers, 21-inch wheels and ventilated steel brake discs. Available upgrades include stiffer Dynamic Ride Control suspension, Dynamic Steering with a continuously variable steering ratio, and carbon-ceramic brake discs. Many of these vehicle systems can be controlled by the Audi Drive Select system, which on the Performance models features a controller on the multifunction steering wheel—just like in the R8 supercar.

Only die-hard Audi fans will be able to tell the Performance models apart from the stock versions. Unique visual touches include a matte titanium finish on some exterior parts and an exclusive Ascari blue metallic paint finish. Inside, the cars come standard with sports seats with pronounced side bolsters and integrated head restraints. These can be ordered in a combination of Alcantara and leather, and with contrast stitching. Finally, the dial instruments feature black faces, white dials and red needles.

Audi is yet to announce availability in the United States but we can expect the RS 7 Performance to be offered here for the 2016 model year. Sadly, we won’t get the RS 6 Avant Performance here since Audi has determined that American buyers don’t want wagons.

We can certainly understand why someone might opt for an RS6 Avant Performance. For a start, there’s no other standard estate that’s faster, yet it’s still capable of being driven briskly in any weather conditions. As an everyday car for effortlessly crossing country, it’s very impressive.

The problem is that the best performance cars are more than just impressive. They should connect and engage with you; they should be the kind of car you look longingly at and desperately think of excuses to drive. This is something the RS6 has never been able to do. This model changes nothing in that respect.

Are we missing the point, though? There is the argument that the person that can spend £86,000 on a fast estate and then deal with the running costs probably doesn’t have this as an only car. If you already own a wheeled adrenalin pump and just want the quickest and easiest way to cart five people and all their luggage from point A to point B, the RS6 Avant Performance fills that role perfectly.

Review: the 600 horsepower Audi RS6 Performance

It was drastically quick then, and the Performance version is drastically quick now. A force of nature. You might want to get the regular RS6 and have some options. But I suspect everyone will just get the big-dog engine and the options.

Is it any good?

Far, far better than a car with no rivals needs to be. Not just because of the magnetic acceleration - which can be summoned at short notice from any position on the tacho - but because it's delivered with a charismatic, but not antisocially loud, woofle. The forces are played out easily, too, thanks to immense traction.

It’s two tonnes though. Bet it doesn't handle.

The steering is numb and the RS6 won't do Mercedes AMG-style tyre-smokin' slides. But unless you're asking the impossible in a hairpin, it avoids understeer with determination. Settle it into a corner, squeeze the pedal, and it will balance neatly and scoot out like it's been fired from a spud-gun.

But it's also got to be civilised.

And it is. If you calm down, so does the engine, burbling away peacefully and slurring its transmission shifts. The ride is firm but far from hard. And even though, under the carbonfibre detailing and quilted leather, this is one of Audi's older cabins, it's still a nice place to be.

And big?

Vast. This is such a useful car. Hugely accommodating, and fast in all conditions. If I had to get myself, my loved ones and some cargo somewhere quickly on a dark, wet, slippery night, this would be the car I’d have.
