Audi India today launched the RS6 Avant in New Delhi at a price of INR 1.35 crores, ex-Showroom, New Delhi. The RS6 Avant is the performance-oriented version of the A6 estate, and creates a niche for itself with its bodystyle.
Powering the Audi RS6 Avant is a 4.0-liter V8 TFSI bi-turbo petrol engine capable of 560 hp and 700 Nm of torque. This is the same engine used on the RS7 Sportback which launched in India in a facelifted avatar last month.
The V8 TFSI engine is coupled to an 8-speed tiptronic transmission which sends the power to all wheels of the estate via Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system. Audi claims the RS6 Avant can hit 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds with a top-speed of 250 km/l (which can be optionally increased to 280 km/h or 305 km/h).
An air suspension system with Audi's Dynamic Ride Control is offered standard on the RS6 Avant. The performance estate also receives standard 20-inch alloy wheels (upgradable to 21-inch) and the redesigned Audi Matrix LED headlight system with dynamic turn signals.
The RS6 Avant measures 4,979 mm in length, 1,936 mm in width and 1,461 mm in height with a wheelbase spanning 2,915 mm. The estate has a cavernous 565 liter boot which can be increased to 1,680 liters with the rear seats folded flat.
