2021 Audi RS 6 Avant Review. Though the car is not low-priced, however, it still feels like 2 cars for the money. Going around the town, it is a comfortable, quiet and spacious wagon all fitted with a handsome and well-crafted interior.
It also carries every of the newest tech and driver aids that Audi ever has to offer. However, when they push the RS button on the steering wheel, the car becomes a comically and rewarding fast performance car.
When tested, this car performed so great as some of the sports cars and it does it with enough cargo space than some of the SUVs.
The engineers at Audi Sport have really done some real magic. That even with the optional 22-inch wheel of the car, the ride was still very smooth and relaxed as well. In all, the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant has got a real comfortable seat.
Also, the car is quiet, making it far, more unnoticeable than you might ever expect. Even on the highway, the interior is still quiet.
2021 Audi RS 6 Avant Engine and Performance
It is well-packed with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine which pumps out 591 horsepower. The 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant comes fully with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. Just like the equipment that is seen on the Q8 and A8.
The Audi Quattro RS 6 Avant has an eight-speed automatic transmission that assists in taking the wagon from 0-60 mph in only 3.5 seconds together with a top speed of 189 mph.
An air suspension that can be adjusted comes standard, however, you can still opt for adaptive dampers or rear-wheel steering.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The EPA estimates that the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant will gain 15 mpg in the city and on the highway, 22 mpg. Now compare that with the 16 mpg city and 23 highway ratings for the E63 S wagon of 2020.
Also the 18 mpg city and 23 highway ratings for the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo of 2020.
Exterior Colors and Dimensions
The dimension of the car measures 184.8 x 72.0 x 57.6 inches. There is also an option to select between 21 or 22 inches wheels. In addition, the car is available in 10 exterior colors abroad.

- Daytona Grey Pearl Effect,
- Daytona Grey Matte Effect,
- Misano Red Pearl Effect,
- Glacier White Metallic,
- Sepang Blue Pearl Effect
- Prisma Silver Crystal Effect
- Nardo Grey
