The Audi RS6 has a sleek and aggressive line, especially in the front. It has new headlights and more aggressive air intakes. The cockpit is very nice and has plenty of space. The plastics used for the dashboard and console are pleasant to the touch, and care when mounting is above average. Even the trunk is large and regular, as well as well finished.
The engines are the 2.0 TFSI with 252 HP and the 3.0 V6 with direct injection (supercharger) with 333 HP. Then, there is the 4.0 V8 for S6 (450 HP) or for RS6 (560 HP). To save on operating costs, there are also five diesel versions for the Audi A6 Avant. The 2.0 TDI with 150 HP or with 190 HP. But the declared consumption is like a compact car. Finally, you can choose the 3.0 V6 TDI with 218, 272, 320 or 326 HP. To have adequate power and torque, it is better the 3.0 TDI quattro S tronic with a 7–speed automatic transmission.
