According to Audi Germany web site there are Avant 1.8t and 2.0t variants (the latter with quattro) but I guess in the UK they consider the demand doesn't warrant importation.

The previous model definitely got the 3.0t (supercharged v6) in a de-tuned state from the S models.

I'm quite surprised that they've not produced a decent petrol version, below the halo models, but I guess investment is going in to hybrid powertrains which aren't ready yet?

The 2.0t is a fine engine in something light and small but in a car the size of the A6 I can't help but feel it would be a bit underwhelming due to the added weight? The 4.0t is on my shopping list for the next car - just not sure if it'll be S or RS flavour
