The Audi RS6 stands out for its rakish design, hunched-down stance, and supercar-like driving characteristics in a sea of performance SUVs like the BMW X5 M.

This station waggon is a performance monster, reaching 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds and having a top speed of 190 mph thanks to its 591 horsepower twin-turbo V-8 engine.

Although the RS6 has a strong focus on sporty driving, the inside has a sophisticated design, luxurious materials, and the newest technologies.

The RS6 Avant competes against other premium performance waggons like the Porsche Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo in addition to the high-riding performance SUVs.

Audi also sells the practically identical RS7 hatchback if you like the RS6 Avant's performance attributes but prefer a sleeker, less family-friendly design.

For the 2023 model year, the RS6 Avant receives just one improvement: a black suede headliner that is optional and produced from recycled materials.

The high-performance waggon otherwise stays the same as last year, and the cost is still the same.

There is only one configuration for the Audi RS6, but you may customise it with several upscale features. You'll need to fork over more money if you want a different paint colour unless you want a grey automobile.

A twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine with a displacement of 591 horsepower and 590 pound-feet is what Audi equips the RS6 Avant with.

The engine is coupled with a 48-volt hybrid technology seen on other Audi models, including the Q8 crossover and the A8 luxury sedan.

The eight-speed automatic transmission in the Audi RS6 Avant connects to the vehicle's standard Quattro all-wheel drive system.

Our 5031-pound test vehicle was propelled by the combination to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and the quarter-mile in 11.5 ticks at 120 mph.

Due to its torque-vectoring rear differential and four-wheel steering, the long-roof Audi also felt incredibly nimble.

For a significant cost, a set of front and rear carbon-ceramic brakes can be added, increasing the top speed to 190 mph.
