Discover the New Fourth Generation Audi RS6 Avant

The Audi RS6 Avant is one of the most sought-after cars in the world, and to celebrate 25 years of the RS, the German car manufacturing giant is releasing the 4th generation of the RS6 in 2020. To learn more about this fantastic piece of engineering, as well as when you can get your hands on your model, carry on reading.

What’s Different?

The first thing that catches the eye about the Audi RS6 Avant is the dramatically different design. Compared to the base model of the A6 Avant, the RS6 is almost unrecognisable with a body that is 40mm wider on each side. The 10-spoke, star-design, 21-inch wheels grab the eye, too, and add to the car’s personality. And, inside, the interior is solely made from RS parts that are specific to this make and model. One thing’s for sure - you’ll stand out wherever you drive this legendary car.

Under the Bonnet

Petrolheads will be happy to know that there is also a lot of changes under the bonnet, not that the old, iconic models lacked in that department. Still, Audi decided to mark a quarter of a century with a release that doesn’t lack any of the bite that car-lovers enjoy. 3.6 seconds is all it takes to hit 60mph, which is only 0.2 seconds slower than the R8 V10 Coupé, a supercar. With 600PS and 800Nm of torque from a V8 4-litre twin-turbo TFSI power unit, there’s no need to worry about the change to Audi’s mild-hybrid technology. To put it into perspective, it takes the RS6 12 seconds to reach 124mph.

How Does It Maintain Its Power and Be Fuel Efficient?

It’s a good question. The answer lies in the mild-hybrid engine that can produce lots of torque without burning too much petrol. At low speeds and load capacity, multiple cylinders are deactivated, while fuel injection and ignition are also turned off along with the intake and exhaust valves. As a result, the Audi RS6 Avant can save fuel while hitting a top speed of 155mph.

Another energy-efficient feature of the mild-hybrid power unit is the belt-driven, 48-volt recovery system. As soon as you take your foot off the gas, the system saves up to 12 kW of energy and stores it in a separate battery for later use. The RS6 can also coast for 40 seconds to save energy, mixing performance and efficiency.
