The Audi RS 6 Avant, which has attracted widespread attention from fans, was officially launched at the Audi International Circuit in Shanghai. The high-performance wagon, which was first introduced to domestic sales, is equipped with a 4.0T V8 engine.

In addition, to the launch, Audi also officially released a new sub-brand - Audi Sport, the future of all Audi's high-performance and sports event products will be integrated under the Audi Sport brand.

New car features

Appearance: Touring body is low-profile, more aggressive detail design

RS 6 Avant (hereinafter referred to as RS 6) appearance, in the end, is considered low-key or radical? This is a very controversial topic, and I think the main reason for the disagreement is that we have different points of view. On the one hand, this high-performance car is a wagon body structure, which does not look like a typical high-performance car, with a small rear and exaggerated rear wing, after all, the wagon in most people's impressions is not very aggressive, so many people say it is "pig eat tiger". On the other hand, if you look closely, in fact, RS 6 is a high-performance car in many details of the design not ambiguous, using a very sharp design, such as exaggerated front and rear surroundings, unique honeycomb grille, standard 20-inch thin tires, etc., these details embellish the RS 6 is still very aggressive if you look closely, so there are many people say that it is designed to be more Radical.

As a station wagon, the RS 6 is still considered to the convenient for family occasions, so we see in the RS 6's external configuration of LED high and low beams, night vision system, electric suction doors, and other features, these configurations are very humane, very significant class, with its station wagon exterior design, showing the RS 6 Avant family-oriented side.

There is no doubt that the wagon's body lines make the RS 6 look more elegant, especially its slender waistline and rear-end shape, making the RS 6 appear lower and visually more modest. Speaking of this and the topic of sentiment, in the hearts of many friends, wagons such as the audience is not much of a model can precisely show their unique aesthetic and sentiment.

Interior: family design déjà vu, microscopic details highlighting the sporting style

Compared to the personalized exterior design, the RS 6 interior design is quite low-key. The main reason for this is that the interior layout largely follows Audi's family style, and at first glance, it may not even look too different from the Audi A6L; however, at the same time, a large amount of carbon fiber trim, the sporadic touches of red leather and the red double stitching everywhere in the car undoubtedly reveal the wild and unrestrained nature of a high-performance car.

The RS 6 is rich in interior features, including a power panoramic sunroof, head-up display, sport leather seats, rear sunshade, interior air conditioning, automatic parking, and adaptive cruise control. Although this equipment is not very high-tech, very avant-garde, after all, this is the main performance wagon, we do not have to be too demanding on the configuration.

Space: ride performance is satisfactory, and the luggage compartment volume shows great advantage

The 180cm tall editor sat in the driver's seat and adjusted the seat to the lowest position, at which time the headspace was more than one fist; on the premise that the front seats remain unchanged, the editor rode to the rear seats and we saw that the headspace was about four fingers, while the knee space was one fist and four fingers. It can be said that in terms of riding space, such performance is quite satisfactory.

Let's look at the performance of the luggage compartment space, without lowering the rear seats, the RS 6's regular volume is 565L, after lowering the rear seats the volume can be expanded to 1680L, and the rear seats can be lowered to keep flush with the luggage compartment floor, at this time the RS 6 as a station wagon its advantages are fully revealed: after lowering the seats the maximum depth of the rear storage space reaches The maximum depth of storage space at the rear of the car after the seats are down is 1966mm, the width is 1155mm, and the height is 720mm, so the space performance can meet the diversified needs of the owner.

Power: 4.0T twin-turbocharged engine with 8-speed manual transmission

As a performance car, the RS 6 Avant is equipped with a 3993mL displacement twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which we have seen in the Audi S6, S7, S8, and RS 7, with a maximum power of 560hp (412kW)/5700-6600rpm and a maximum torque of 700Nm/1750-5500rpm in the RS 6 Avant. The engine is matched with an 8-speed manual transmission from ZF. The official 0-100 km/h acceleration time of the RS 6 Avant is only 3.9 seconds.

The RS 6 is equipped with a five-link independent front suspension and a trapezoidal-link independent rear suspension, with an air suspension that can be adjusted for softness and height as standard. The driving method is Audi's proud Quattro four-wheel drive system, which makes the RS 6 easier to drive as a performance car. This, in turn, is one of the RS 6's other attractions.
