A superhero. The saviour of the downtrodden. The model every Estate (or stationwagon) had been praying for. This is the Audi RS6, the Iron Man of Estates. Just like one Mr Stark...
Audi RS6 Review
When an Audi gets the RS tag, a fire-breathing monster is the first thing that comes to your mind. The cars are focussed, incredibly fast and in most cases not exactly practical. But when it is an estate in question, like the RS6 Avant, even the concerns of practicality are taken care off.
The RS6 has been built on the Audi A6 platform. The horizontally slatted hexagonal front grille dominates the fascia. It gets the new intelligent LED matrix headlamps slotted above the wide air intakes on the bumper which also houses the round fog lamps. The RS badge with the red highlight denotes the pedigree of the mill within. The sloping roofline of the estate masks the length of this car while the flared wheel arches add muscle. The tail hatch opens upwards and the twin exhausts look aggressive with the blacked out rear splitter.
The interior is all black and upholstered in fine quality leather. The three-spoke flat bottom steering wheel is contoured for maximum grip and has steering mounted audio controls along with cruise control and paddle shifters. The dash design is busy with the centre console having a slew of buttons. It gets four-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof and auto dimming interior as well as wing mirrors. The front seats are power adjustable while the rear seat can be folded up to unlock more stowage capacity from the already humungous boot.
Under the hood, you have the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine churning out a massive 560bhp of power at 5700rpm and 700Nm of torque from 1750rpm. The direct injection four valves per cylinder V8 is mated to an eight-speed dual clutch gearbox and comes with the Quattro all-wheel-drive. The safety is taken care off by eight airbags and a comprehensive stability program. It also gets driving modes like economy, dynamic and sport.
The Audi RS6 competes with the E63AMG Estate, Jaguar XF Sportbrake and the BMW M5 Touring, globally. In India, at the price tag, it competes with Porsche Panamera GTS, the Mercedes E63 AMG and its sibling the Audi RS7.
