Audi RS 6 2021 Review
The Audi RS 6 Avant supercar has sense and civility draped over it, but at heart it’s still wild
The German luxury brands don’t offer many low-riding wagons anymore. But the ones they do offer are memorable, including the Audi RS 6. The product of Audi Sport, or RS as it used to be known, this is the fourth-generation version of a V8 all-wheel drive wagon that looks civilised and drives crazy.
Think of the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant as a sensible supercar. It can rip to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds and carry up to 1680 litres of luggage. But maybe not do both at the same time.
Based on the latest Audi A6 wagon that is not sold in Australia, the RS 6 stuffs a twin-turbo V8 engine under the bonnet, an all-wheel drive system under the floor and has an electronic brain packed with chassis and driver assist gizmos that help keep this spectacular show on the road.
Meet the sensible supercar
For all that, plus a heap of luxury gear and an assertive new look rounded out by 22-inch alloy wheels that only a few years ago would have been restricted to a lairy show car, you’ll pay $217,000 plus on-road costs.
