The fourth generation of the RS icon: the new Audi RS 6 Avant


25 years of the RS moniker and 25 years of high-performance station wagons from Audi. With the new 2020 Audi RS 6 Audi Sport is ushering in a new chapter in the history of the high-performance wagons, featuring more power and increased efficiency thanks to its mild hybrid system.

The new RS 6 Avant is one of the first Audi Sport models to feature the new RS design language. Its redesigned front-end stands out in the A6 lineup, featuring a new hood together with powerdome and the new, high-tech headlights from the A7 model line.

With the exception of the front doors, roof and tailgate, the exterior is made up solely of RS-specific parts. The body has been widened around 40 millimeters on each side with its broad flared wheel arches, emphasizing the sporty character of the high-performance Avant. Deep bumpers and the 22-inch wheels accentuate the athletic stance.

The 4.0 TFSI powerplant in the new Audi RS 6 Avant delivers 600 PS and 800 Nm of torque, which is maintained at this high level between 2,100 and 4,500 rpm. In just 3.6 seconds the high-performance station wagon sprints from zero to 100 km/h, and in a mere 12 seconds the RS 6 Avant reaches 200 km/h. Top speed is electronically governed at 250 km/h. With the optional dynamic package, the RS station wagon does up to 280 km/h or even up to 305 km/h when featuring the dynamic package plus.
