The new Audi S6 and S6 Avant are sports cars for everyday use. They use the 4.0-litre TFSI petrol engine, a twin turbo V8 producing 450PS, which accelerates the Saloon from rest to 62mph in 4.4 seconds. The S6 Avant completes the sprint in 4.6 seconds. Combined fuel economy is an impressive 30.7mpg in the Saloon and 30.1mpg in the Avant, the equivalent of 214 and 219 grams CO2 per kilometer, respectively. This efficiency is due in large part to the cylinder on demand (COD) system, which only activates four of the eight cylinders when under part load.

Standard equipment in the new Audi S6 and S6 Avant includes Quattro permanent all‑wheel drive incorporating the sports differential and the adaptive air suspension, which lowers the body by 20 millimeters. Matt black brake calipers grip the front discs mounted behind the 19‑inch wheels.

The figurehead of the new A6 family remains the RS 6 Avant. The Avant in the extreme accelerates to 62mph in a mere 3.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 189mph. Its 4.0-litre TFSI engine produces 560PS, yet is also capable of up to 29.4mpg, corresponding to 223 grams CO2 per kilometer. The COD system is also largely responsible for this efficiency.

An eight‑speed tiptronic transfers the power from the twin turbo V8. The standard Quattro drivetrain uses a centre differential with a higher locking rate and also features the sports differential acting on the rear axle. The RS adaptive air suspension lowers the body by 20 millimeters, but customers also have the option of conventionally sprung RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC). The large brake discs feature a weight-saving wave design, and the wheels measure 20 inches in diameter. 21‑inch wheels are available as an option.

The sinewy style of the exterior is echoed in the car’s spacious interior, which in the Avant is combined with a 565-litre load bay that can be expanded to 1,680 liters. Every detail attests to an uncompromising approach to quality, and the elegant colors and carefully selected materials emphasize the premium class ambiance. A new Lunar Silver upholstery and headlining color choice for S line versions, which have until now been available finished exclusively in black, is one advantage offered by the new model, as are subtle detail enhancements, including an upgrade from dual-zone to deluxe four-zone climate control, new gear lever designs and additional chrome detailing.
