The RS 6 Avant received an updated exterior design and a new infotainment
system for 2015.
As part of the model refresh, changes have been made to the Singleframe grille, the headlights, air inlets, bumpers, side sills, rear lights and tailpipes. Audi optionally offers headlights with LED technology or Matrix LED technology, combined with dynamic turn signals.
The 2015 RS 6 Avant's top-of-the-line navigation system with the power-retractable eight-inch monitor is now based on a new technology platform that uses the fast Tegra 30 graphics chip from Audi's partner Nvidia. The supplemental module Audi connect transfers data via the fast LTE standard and brings tailored online services into the car, including new media streaming apps.
There are no changes under the hood. The high-performance sports car accelerates to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). Its 4.0 TFSI engine produces 552 hp (412 kW), yet consumes on average just 9.6 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers, according to NEDC.
An eight-speed tiptronic transmission transfers the power from the biturbo V8. The standard quattro drivetrain uses a center differential with a higher locking rate. The RS adaptive air suspension lowers the body by 0.8 in (20 millimeters). Audi offers the taut RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an option.
Delivery of the new Audi RS 6 Avant across Europe will begin in fall 2014. The base price in Germany for the Audi RS 6 Avant is 108,900 EUR ($142,000).
