The Audi RS6 Avant has been the go-to choice for anyone needing a truly all-weather-capable supercar with five doors. When it first debuted, it created an unprecedented combination of AWD performance, horsepower, and practicality. Despite its powerful position in the marketplace, Audi has killed the model twice since it debuted in 2002. The first-generation car was only around from 2002 until 2004 when Audi discontinued the RS6 in favor of the smaller RS4. The mightiest of the A6 models returned again in 2008, but was gone by 2010. Finally the car returned for the last time in 2012, and it appears as though it may be here to stay. Unlike the previous models that only survived for three years, the current model is in fact going to live a long and illustrious life as Audi announced a refresh for the 2015 RS6 Avant. Please start thanking your preferred deity.
While the entire A6 family is getting a pretty thorough refresh with new engines and drivetrains, the changes to the RS6 Avant are mostly visual with the majority of the drivetrain and chassis components carrying over from the current machine.
