It is possible that 591 horsepower would have been sufficient for the Audi RS6 Avant, but it does not appear that this was the case. Audi has made the executive decision to turn up the volume for 2024 by introducing a new Performance variant that boasts an absurd 621 horsepower. The new type is also lighter, so it should be possible to achieve a satisfactory level of acceleration. Despite this, the RS6 Avant has not lost any of its amazing practicality in its pursuit of increased power. It can still seat five passengers in a relaxed manner inside an interior that is replete with luxurious materials and an abundance of cutting-edge technology. In addition, there is a large amount of storage space available beneath the hydraulic rear liftgate. The RS6 Avant continues to be a specialised option despite the proliferation of performance-focused SUVs such as the BMW X5 M. The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is the only other station waggon that can be considered a legitimate rival to the RS6 Avant. The muscular and angular form of the RS6 Avant is one of its most compelling selling features, in contrast to the curved appearance of the Porsche, which may appeal to some people.



What’s in Store for the Year 2024?

The RS6 Avant will receive a new Performance variant in 2024. This model will have more horsepower and torque from the V-8 engine, in addition to minor changes to the chassis. Additionally, the Performance model loses a few pounds, now comes equipped with new tyres with a width of 285 millimetres from Continental, and is available in a handful of different colours.


Even though the Performance model has additional horsepower, the basic RS6 Avant is still pretty amazing, and you can deck it up with a wide variety of luxurious accessories. Alternate paint colours will cost you additional money, unless you specifically want a grey vehicle. If it were up to us, we’d have it sprayed in the lovely Navarra Blue Metallic colour. The Black Optic package, which gives the waggon an even more ominous look with black exterior components and snazzy 22-inch wheels on summer performance tyres, is another one of our top recommendations. If a person wants their Avant to be capable of reaching 190 miles per hour, they will need to invest in carbon-ceramic brakes. However, we believe that the money would be better spent on massage chairs in the front seats and the Executive package, which includes more leather-covered surfaces, heated rear seats, soft-close doors, and a head-up display. Naturally, we want our waggon to have the optional sport exhaust so that we may enjoy the intoxicating noises that its engine produces.

Performance, as well as the Engine and the Transmission

The RS6 Avant from Audi is equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. This engine is capable of producing 591 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain is combined with a hybrid system that operates on 48 volts and may be found on other Audi models, such as the A8 luxury car and the Q8 crossover. An eight-speed automatic gearbox is what supplies power to the RS6 Avant’s Quattro all-wheel drive system, which is standard equipment. Our 5031-pound test vehicle was able to reach 60 miles per hour in 3.1 seconds thanks to the combination, and it ran the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds at a speed of 120 miles per hour. The Performance package raises the output to 621 horsepower, and Audi claims that this reduces the wagon’s acceleration times by a couple of tenths of a second. Additionally, lightweight wheels and a revised centre differential come standard on the Performance model. The wagon’s amazing capacity to raise our heart rates and thrill our eardrums with its fast acceleration and ferocious soundtrack is not accurately portrayed by those stats, though. Our Tango Red RS6 Avant test vehicle included a sport-tuned air suspension with adjustable dampers, which allowed it to give either a comfortable or exhilarating ride quality depending on the mode of driving that was selected. The wheels measured 22 inches in diameter and were wrapped in summer performance rubber. Because it had four-wheel steering and a torque-vectoring rear differential, the long-roof Audi also had the feeling of being incredibly agile. The basic brakes on ours brought it to a halt from 70 miles per hour in just 160 feet. The vehicle’s top speed can be increased to 190 miles per hour by purchasing an upgrade that consists of a pair of carbon-ceramic brakes for both the front and the rear wheels.


Economy on fuel and actual miles per gallon

It is anticipated that the RS6 Avant would achieve 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the interstate. These figures are comparable to those obtained by the E63 S and the Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo. When we are able to put the RS6 Avant through our thorough testing regimen, which includes a highway fuel-economy route at 75 miles per hour, we will be able to determine its mpg in real-world driving conditions.

Cargo Space, Interior Design, and Amenities

Inside, the Audi RS6 Avant flaunts a cutting-edge interior design that is both stylish and technologically advanced. The instrument cluster for the driver is a 12.3-inch digital display, and the dashboard has a pair of big touchscreens in the middle that are positioned between the front passengers. The rest of the inside of the vehicle is finished in leather and highlighted with sporty materials. The Audi RS6 Avant comes standard with a number of high-end features, such as front seats that are heated and ventilated, four-zone temperature control, a panoramic sunroof, and wireless charging for mobile devices.
