The new RS 6 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 paired to a 48V mild-hybrid system. It sends power to the ground via an eight-speed automatic and Audi’s signature Quattro all-wheel drive system. Combined, the system makes 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, which is a whole lot.
The RS6 Avant will showcase the company’s sophisticated interior design and cutting-edge technology. The dashboard boasts multiple digital displays and promotes a luxury aesthetic with premium materials such as leather and faux suede as well as upscale features such as ventilated front seats and a head-up display. Audi says the Avant has 20 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats and 59 cubes with the back seats folded. Likewise, a power tailgate is standard while a motion-activated tailgate is optional. The Avant’s list of driver-assistance technology includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and more. Look for the RS6 Avant sometime in mid-2020.
