Default All New RS 6 Avant

All-new RS 6 Avant gains more power from a V8 twin-turbo TFSI and adds MHEV drive and fully digital cabin integrating MMI Touch Response

- Fourth generation high-performance Avant available to order in the UK from November 2019 and due for first customer deliveries in January 2020
- 4.0 TFSI twin-turbo V8 with mild hybrid: high power meets high efficiency
- 600PS, 800 Nm, 0 to 62mph in just 3.6 seconds

The concept of the super-fast Avant is more tightly woven into the Audi DNA than virtually any other hallmark of Vorsprung durch Technik, and that concept has been refined yet again in the creation of the new, fourth generation RS 6 Avant. Bristling with the technological accomplishments already delivered by the new A6 Avant, the latest addition to the Audi Sport fold combines formidable twin-turbo eight-cylinder TFSI power with state-of-the-art efficiency features including mild hybrid drive and cylinder-on-demand technology, helping to deliver epic performance as responsibly as possible.

“Throughout our 25-year RS history, the Audi RS 6 Avant is one of our absolute icons with a large global fan base,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “We will also be offering the RS 6 Avant in North America for the very first time. As such, we will be tapping into a new market with huge potential and generating further growth.”

Broad and powerful: the exterior design
With the exception of the front doors, roof and tailgate, the exterior of the RS 6 Avant comprises exclusively RS-specific parts, and to look at the car at rest on its sizeable 21-inch wheels shrouded by broad flared arches that expand its width by 40mm on each side, this is immediately evident.

The new RS 6 Avant is one of the first Audi Sport models to feature the new RS design language. In addition to a new bonnet with powerdome, it also adopts the front headlights from the A7 model line which are not only slimmer and more sporting in style but also offer the RS Matrix LED laser headlight with darkened trims as an additional USP of the RS 6 Avant in the A6 family. Similar to the LED rear lights, they feature a dynamic indicator along with RS-specific sequencing when the vehicle is locked and unlocked.

The three-dimensional honeycomb structure within the Singleframe grille is finished in gloss black, and its surround and the quattro logo in the bumper have been removed in this latest incarnation of the design. Below the standard LED headlights, side air inlets open on the strikingly drawn new RS bumper and extend almost into the lower edge of the headlights. The designers have taken their cue for this application from the front-end of the Audi R8 supercar.

The characteristic Avant silhouette dominates in the side view – elongated front section, long, straight roofline and flat D pillars, which rest on the quattro blisters. RS-specific sills with black inserts also add emphasis to the flanks. The dynamic rear-end consists of the roof edge spoiler and an RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser and design elements in gloss black. In hallmark RS style, the RS exhaust system flows on both sides into oval chrome-coloured tailpipes.

Supreme power package: the engine
The 4.0 TFSI in the new Audi RS 6 Avant delivers 600PS and 800 Nm (590.0 lb-ft) of torque, which is maintained at this high level between 2,050 and 4,500 rpm. In just 3.6 seconds the high-performance Avant sprints from zero to 62mph, and where conditions permit the driver can see 124mph by the time 12 seconds have elapsed. Top speed is electronically governed at 155mph.

Thanks to the 48-volt main electrical system the twin-turbo V8 combines maximum performance with high efficiency. A belt alternator starter lies at the heart of the mild hybrid system (MHEV). Up to 12 kW of power can be recovered during light deceleration and stored in a separate lithium-ion battery. If the driver lifts off the accelerator at a speed of between 34 and 99mph, the drive management selects one of two options: Depending on the driving situation and setting in the standard Audi drive select dynamic driving system the new RS 6 Avant recovers energy or coasts for up to 40 seconds with the engine switched off. Re-applying pressure on the accelerator instructs the belt alternator starter to restart the engine. MHEV technology allows for start/stop operation at speeds of up to 13mph. Fuel savings of up to 0.8 litres per 100 kilometres are possible in everyday driving.

Another key efficiency-focused component is the cylinder on demand (COD) system, which at low to intermediate loads and speeds deactivates cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8 in the high gears by switching off injection and ignition and closing the intake and exhaust valves. In four-cylinder operation the operating points in the active cylinders are displaced toward higher loads in areas of the characteristic map with higher efficiency, while the deactivated cylinders largely run without losses, like gas springs. When the driver presses the accelerator pedal, they are reactivated instantly.

For all its efficiency the 4.0 TFSI remains a thoroughbred V8 in terms of character and sound. The driver can influence that sound using the Audi drive select system. In the new, customisable RS1 and RS2 modes accessible via Audi drive select, customers decide themselves whether the sound should be full-blooded or balanced.

The standard eight-speed tiptronic with optimised shift times and a new Launch Control function transmits the power of the 4.0 TFSI to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The drive forces are distributed to the front and rear axle in a ratio of 40:60 via the all-mechanical centre differential. If one wheel slips, more drive torque automatically goes to the axle with the better traction. Up to 70 percent can be channelled to the front wheels and up to 85 percent to the rear wheels.

The wheel-selective torque control optimises the agile and safe handling of the new RS 6 Avant – it brakes the wheels with reduced load on the inside of a bend slightly before they can begin to spin. The quattro sport differential shifts the drive torque when cornering at speed as required between the rear wheels, thus improving traction, stability and dynamics.

Even more agile: the suspension
In the new RS 6 Avant the front and rear axles use a five-link design to handle the induced longitudinal and transverse forces separately. The linkages and the subframes are made largely of aluminium. The track width is 1,668 millimetres at the front and 1,651 millimetres at the rear.

The body of the new RS 6 Avant is 20 millimetres lower than in the Audi A6 Avant with standard suspension; at speeds of 74mph and above, it is lowered by another 10 millimetres. At the other end of the scale, a lift mode is available to raise the vehicle by 20 millimetres for low speed driving. The very wide spread of the RS sport air suspension offers the driver a free choice between long-distance comfort and maximum performance.

The new RS 6 Avant features progressive steering with its direct ratio as standard. The system develops significantly higher return forces with increasing steering angle for precise steering feedback. Its newly developed power assistance directly connects the driver and road.

The driver can change the character of the RS 6 Avant using the Audi drive select dynamic handling system. Six profiles are available: comfort, auto, dynamic, efficiency, and the individually configurable RS-specific RS1 and RS2 modes, which can also be activated directly using the “RS MODE” steering wheel button. This automatically opens the RS-specific displays in the Audi virtual cockpit. The Audi drive select dynamic handling system influences the engine and transmission management, the power steering, the suspension, the dynamic all-wheel steering, the quattro sport differential, the engine sound and the characteristics of the automatic air conditioning. The RS2 mode exists specifically to influence the Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) directly at the push of a button.

The new RS 6 Avant is fitted standard with 21-inch cast aluminium wheels in 10-spoke star design, which are shod with 275/35 size tyres. An RS-specific wheel in 22-inch 5-V-spoke trapezoid design with 285/30 tires will be available on the Vorsprung specification. The newly developed RS ceramic brake system weighs around 34 kilograms less than its steel counterpart, thus reducing unsprung masses. The Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) features a sport mode or can be switched off entirely.

Sporty and variable: the interior
The pioneering interior design accentuates the character of the new RS 6 Avant with its driver orientation and inlays in matt brushed dark aluminium. With its horizontal alignment and its tiered, three-dimensional structure, the instrument panel appears light and sleek. The user interface of the all-digital operating system harmonises with the clear black-panel design. The top MMI touch response display is incorporated almost invisibly into the black-panel architecture. The “RS Monitor” display provides the driver with the option to see an overview of the temperature status of the drive components, the maximum g acceleration figures along with information on tire pressure and temperature in the top display.

In the Audi virtual cockpit, special RS displays provide information on tyre pressure, torque, power output, engine oil temperature, boost pressure, lap times, acceleration measurements and g forces. The shift light display prompts the driver to upshift when the maximum engine speed is reached.

The fully perforated and flat-bottomed sport leather steering wheel features new large RS shift paddles made of aluminium and multifunction buttons that allow the driver to also directly select the new Audi drive select RS1 and RS2 modes. RS and RS 6 logos adorn the interior on the steering wheel, seats and the illuminated front door sill trims. The Audi Sport emblem is projected onto the road when the front or rear doors are opened.

The RS sport seats come in perforated Valcona leather with honeycomb pattern and RS embossing. Their perforation also allows ventilation for the first time.

The new RS 6 Avant is even roomier inside. The luggage compartment has a capacity of between 565 and 1,680 litres, and the loading width between the wheel arches is now 1.05 metres, 14 millimetres larger than the previous model. The split-folding rear seat bench in the ratio 40:20:40 can be released and folded conveniently from the luggage compartment – the luggage compartment length has grown to 1.99 metres as a result. A power tailgate and luggage compartment cover are standard. In combination with the optional convenience key, sensor control allows the tailgate to be opened with a foot gesture. The optional swivelling trailer towing hitch features an electric release function. Also available as an option is the camera-based trailer assist, which helps the driver when reversing and manoeuvring with a trailer.

Large choice: infotainment, assist systems, colours and materials
The paint range for the new Audi RS 6 Avant includes thirteen colours, including the two RS-specific colours Nardo grey and Sebring black, crystal effect along with a choice of five matt effect paint finishes. The Audi exclusive range offers numerous customisation options.

Picture caption
Estate of the nation – The perennially popular Audi RS 6 Avant returns in all-new, fourth generation form, combing a V8 twin-turbo TFSI assisted by mild hybrid technology with updated RS-specific adaptive air suspension, quattro drive and a wealth of new infotainment and driver assistance technology.

Note to Editors
Audi closed 2018 with around 1.812 million global sales, 143,739 of which were accounted for by UK customers. The brand is currently engaged in the most ambitious new model launch initiative in its history, and in 2019 its full effect will begin to be felt. One of the most prominent results will be the market introduction of the e-tron SUV, the first ever fully electric Audi and the standard bearer for a major expansion of the BEV and PHEV portfolio that will see in excess of 20 electrified models join the range by 2025.

This will be just one strand in a major realignment programme that is propelling the Audi Group quickly and securely into the future underpinned by planned investment of approximately €14 billion into electric mobility, digitalization and autonomous driving between 2019 and 2023 alone. Overall, the company’s total projected expenditure for the planning period of the next five years amounts to around €40 billion.

Watched the Autogefuhl video on it last night. Looks like another excellent RS6, but not too keen on that front grill or the rear accent line.

The styling cues seem to come from the R8, but look as if they have been exaggerated on the RS6. Specifically, I'm thinking of the diagonal lines of the lower grill surround on the front and the highlighted accent line at the rear. Look how far up they are from the exhaust tips compared to the R8.

Silver accent line on rear bumper is gopping - otherwise I rather like it - can imagine there will be options to tone that down. The mild hybrid and COD are strong points too. If it drives as well as the previous generation it’ll be an awesome option, if enough people buy them new!

In other news it’ll probably see a decent adjustment on residuals for the C7 over the next year, to the point I might be able to afford one!

I read somewhere earlier that the "Black Pack" option takes care of the silver with some carbon fibre look, guess that option will be similar cost to a decent D2 S8...

I do like it though and I think from the side it's taken a retro step and looks more like the C6 than the C7, which IMHO is a good thing

However if as Adrian predicts it brings the price of C7s down then I wouldn’t mind one on the driveway.

But having said that I would also love an M5 Competition but they are still outwith my price even though depreciation means they are now selling for half what they were new....

As we often say on here, each to his own. I think the front is downright fugly! And much of the rest of the styling is OTT. Audi have come a long way since the understated, timeless beauty of the D2 ‘8, (and not always the right way) IMHO.

I think the front and back are a bit overdone. I definitely agree on the understated element. Like the original RS6 where you had to look a bit closer to really see the difference.

Agreed (about the overstated styling).

The thing is, virtually every car has overstated styling now, right down to the smallest 1.0L shopping carts. The result is that sporty styling has been normalised meaning that, where it is justified, it no longer stands out.

Understated is the new overstated.

On a related note: Is it just me or do D2s get noticed a LOT more now? I mean, in my 9 years of ownership, I've always had strangers notice my S8, often stopping to pass a compliment or ask me about it. But lately it's like every time I go out in the car. I can't even stop for fuel any more without someone stopping me to talk about it. I wonder if D2s now stand out more, given that almost everything else on the road has the same overstated looks.

Oh yes, we stayed here: https://www.belmond.com/hotels/europ...-saisons/about last night (belated "coming-of-age" celebration).
And of course we travelled there in style in the D2 S8. I even gave it a quick rub down with a damp chamois beforehand!

When we arrived I drove straight into the "reserved for valet parking" area and the reception lady came out to meet us and take our cases. Several staff looked at the car with interest.
They asked for the key, offering to park it and SWMBO actually told them I'd park it myself once we'd checked in as it was too precious and I didn't let anyone drive it. Nodded agreement.

When I moved it to the main car park there wasn't a single car there of any real interest. Plenty of expensive ones, but that's all.

This morning that same valet parking area was full of boring, aggressive-looking, fast modern cars with no actual "style".
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.
