2023 Audi RS6 Avant is a rumored Wagon in the USA. Audi RS6 Avant will have a 4.0L Twin-Turbo V8 Gas Engine. The Wagon offers 591 horsepower at 6000 rpm while 590 lb-ft torque at 2050 rpm.
Working on 8-Speed automatic transmission and All wheel drivetrain. With the 19.3 gallons fuel tank, passengers can get a fuel economy of 15 MPG in City, 22 MPG on the Highway, and 17 MPG Combined. As usual, Rack Pinion steering makes it comfortable driving.
40 ft Turning Diameter, Multi-Link Front and Rear Suspension, and Aluminum Wheels of size (21″ x 10.5″ front and back) and types (P275/35YR21 front and rear). There is a Compact Spare Tire. The SUV emits 10.4 tons of CO2 per year.
There is only one update to the RS6 Avant for the 2023 model year: an available black suede headliner made from recycled materials. Otherwise, the high-performance wagon carries over unchanged from last year, and the price also remains the same.
ENGINE AND IMPLEMENTATION
Audi endows the 2023 Audi RS6 Avant with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, which generates 591 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The powerplant combines with a 48-volt hybrid system that’s found on other Audi products, such as the A8 luxury sedan and the Q8 crossover.
The 2023 Audi RS6 Avant feeds its standard Quattro all-wheel drive through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The combination helped rocket our 5031-pound test car to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in 11.5 ticks at 120 mph.
But those numbers don’t accurately demonstrate the wagon’s glorious ability to increase our heart rates and tingle our eardrums with its breakneck acceleration and badass soundtrack.
Rolling on a set of 22-inch wheels with summer performance rubber and buoyed by a sport-tuned air suspension with adaptive dampers, our Tango Red RS6 Avant test car was able to deliver a relaxed or rollicking ride depending on the selected drive mode.
The long-roof Audi also felt extremely agile thanks to its four-wheel steering and torque-vectoring rear differential. Ours stopped from 70 mph in a tidy 160 feet with the standard brakes. A set of front and rear carbon-ceramic stoppers are available for a sizable sum, and the upgrade unlocks a higher top speed of 190 mph.
ENERGY AND REAL-WORLD MPG
The 2023 Audi RS6 Avant is expected to earn 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, which is in line with what the E63 S and Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo manage.
Once we can run the RS6 Avant on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, we can evaluate its real-world mpg. For more information about the 2023 Audi RS6 Avant’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.
INTERIOR, CONVENIENCE, AND BOOTH
Inside, the 2023 Audi RS6 Avant showcases a sophisticated design and cutting-edge technology. The driver faces a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and the dashboard features a pair of large touchscreens between the front passengers.
The rest of the cabin is covered in leather and accentuated with racy materials. The 2023 Audi RS6 Avant has a roster of upscale standard features, including heated and ventilated front seats, four-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and wireless phone charging.
Buyers can order a head-up display, massaging front seats, richer leather, and heated rear seats for more coins. The wagon has 30 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats too. A power rear liftgate comes standard; a motion-activated one is optional.
IN-VEHICLE INFOTAINMENT AND INTERCONNECTIONS
A 10.1-inch touchscreen handles the infotainment system. It supports standard features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Bang & Olufsen stereo, built-in navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Below the upper display is an 8.6-inch touchscreen that contains settings for the climate controls as well as other vehicle functions.
While both screens have large icons that are easy to spot and use, they can be distracting to the driver, especially the lower one. We miss the old scroll knob that used to accompany Audi’s infotainment systems.
PROTECTION AND DRIVER-ASSISTANCE ASPECTS
The Audi wagon offers some standard driver-assistance technology, with adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist both available.
