Default All A6 models are diesel now!

Surely not?
Been looking at the current A6 range with my son, who ideally wants a S6 Avant.
As far as we can tell there are NO PETROL ENGINES WHATSOEVER available for the entire A6 range.
The only petrol engines are the 4-litre versions in the S6 and RS6 models. What is going on?
2003 D2 FL S8. Irish Green Pearl/Beige. Solar sunroof, auto-dim mirrors, electric rear seat functions, ski hatch retrofit; extended leather. Aftermarket DVB-T, reversing camera and full XCarlink (Bluetooth etc.).
2016 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country (4WD) with ALL the toys including adaptive cruise etc. etc. Osmium Grey with Blonde/Charcoal leather interior. Polestar performance "optimisation". (A much rarer model than a D2 S8 by the way!)
Finally: gone, but not forgotten.....
1998 D2 PF S8. AgateGrey/Platinum. Every option (I think) except electric rear seats, tiptronic steering wheel, ski hatch, towbar & dimming door mirrors.
e.g. Cruise control, NavPlus/TV, Bose, GSM, Xenons, Solar roof, Parking sensors, Alcantara/leather everywhere of course. (internal dimming mirror added later)
1998 (very early) Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec; ABS/TCS, Heated screen/mirrors, Aircon, Auto-dim mirror, Leather, Trip computer, Cruise control, OEM Ford SatNav with CD changer.

Just took a look at Audi.com.au to see what's available here.
No Avant, unless you opt for the Allroad. Allroad only has one engine choice in the 3.0 diesel (nice engine though!).
Switch to Sedan (Saloon?) and there's 2 petrol variants, neither of which I would option - 1.8TSFI and 2.0TSFI.
Deisels are the 2.0 and 3.0.
All transmissions are S-tronic.


2001 Audi S8 - Brilliant Black with Black interior, C5 RS6 rims (whenever I actually put them on...), Solar Sunroof, Tinted side and rear glass, RNS-D, Grom, Bose, clunky old phone in arm rest!
2002 Audi S8 - Project
Replacement head coming arrived thanks to MJ
Silver with Black interior. All features as the '01, with the 'S' mode auto shifter. Dodgey rear tint (need to find a way to get rid of that).
2009 Volvo XC90 V8 R Design
- has a louder more obnoxious exhaust than the S8, sounds great! Love this thing - Q7 was double the price, and certainly not double the car!

1997 Audi A4
- Hamilton's Club Sport, Achat Grey (will miss the old girl)

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
