Audi is now delivering the wildest looking long wing. This is the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant, the fourth generation of this powerful vehicle.
Now, it has a gigantic 592 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torsion from the 4.0-liter soft-hybrid Audi V8 with two turbines. This power, channeled through the Tiptronic eight-speed automatic gearbox and Quattro four-wheel drive system, will enable this utilitarian supercar to settle from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds. Switching from standstill to 124 mph takes just 12 seconds.
Stopping all this effort is a new set of steel brakes that measure an enormous 16.5 inches in front and 14.6 inches in the back. Carbon-ceramic brakes provide an even greater cleaning speed with enormous 17.3-inch front discs.
Under normal conditions, this Quattro mechanism transfers 60 percent of power to the back wheels, but it can transfer up to 70 percent forward in low-grip situations or, when accelerating hard on a dry road, directs 85 percent backward. In corners, the RS6 can break the inside wheels for maximum operation, while the optional Quattro Sport differential can energetically transmit more torsion to the outside. The RS6 can also stop / start at accelerations of up to 13 mph, which is said to enhance fuel economy.
Back-wheel steering is another alternative that should make this station wagon lightweight on toes, while regular air suspension can reduce the vehicle’s speed by almost half an inch for better aerodynamics or raise it 1.6 inches from there according to ride height. Do not worry about annoying speed bumps. Those looking for better operation will need an additional Dynamic Ride Control suspension, which replaces a set of adaptive shock absorbers that are tied from corner to corner, almost like in the McLaren 720S.
With a top acceleration of 190 mph, the new RS6 will be incredibly fast. To be sure it looks like a part, the RS6 Avant wears an almost completely custom-made suit, the body of which separates only the front doors, the roof and the back door with the A6 Avant. The front of the car is also somewhat obscured by a new grille without a frame that looks bigger but simpler, particularly if you choose black or carbon trim sets. Filling the swollen arches has regular 21-inch wheels, but as an alternative you can opt for huge 22-inch wheels.
The inner design has also undergone RS processing with details such as a carbon fabric with open fabrics and quilted leather seats, but still provides all the modern technical features that Audi can offer, including the MMI Touch combined with a virtual cockpit and an optional headrest display, everything is complemented by RS-specific displays.
But the best news is that the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant will be accessible in North America, although it will be when and at what price unanswered questions will arise. Just for context, to get into the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, you need about $ 108,000 to get started. Although the RS6 is likely to fall below this level, it will definitely not be cheap, and you may just have to choose between this and the amenities of your college for children. We know that you will make the right call.
