Forbidden fruit for U.S. wagon enthusiasts

After seven years on the market, the seventh-generation Audi A6, also known as the C7, was finally retired in 2018, making way for a much-improved midsize sedan from the Ingolstadt-based automaker. Redesigned to look more modern inside and out and fitted with all the fancy tech that it needs to go against the competition, including semi-autonomous capability. With the A6 sedan unveiled to the world at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Audi quietly revealed the wagon version, also known as the A6 Avant.

Just like its predecessor, the Avant takes all of its design features and tech from the sedan model. The key difference here is the longer roof and the bigger trunk, which makes the Avant more practical for drivers who haul stuff on a regular basis and an ideal family vacation car. It’s as practical as any midsize wagon out there, but it comes with premium comfort features and the latest safety technology. Does it have what it takes to compete against the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon and the BMW 5 Series Touring? Let’s find out in the review below.

The Singleframe grille is not only larger but also wider just above the bumper

Much like its predecessor, the Avant model is heavily based on the sedan, with the two being virtually identical from the nose toward the C-pillar. Taking cues from the A7, the A6 Avant has a sharper overall design and a sportier front end. The Singleframe grille is not only larger but also wider just above the bumper and descends farther toward the ground. The LED headlamps look aggressive with extremely sharp corners toward the grille and angular shapes toward the fenders and the bumper.

The bumper vents are both larger and sharper, with the standard model looking almost as aggressive as the outgoing RS6 version. The fake honeycomb vents and the grey inserts at the corners add to the wagon’s sporty front end.

Onto the sides, the grocery getter benefits from the simple yet stylish design of the sedan. The belt line is rather discreet and blends into the door panels before becoming a bit more aggressive on the rear fenders. Despite the wagon configuration, the A6 Avant looks quite sporty toward the rear thanks to the gently sloping roofline and the big quarter windows.

LED lights are standard, but you can get the Matrix LED lights from the options list

The rear fascia is again shared with the A6 sedan, as we can see the same taillights, diffuser-like element, and a similar trunk opening. Of course, instead of a traditional trunk lid, the A6 Avant gets a big tailgate.

LED lights are standard, but you can get the Matrix LED lights from the options list. Dynamic turn signals are also available. The color palette includes 14 options, and there’s a selection of wheels to choose from. Further customization options can be had with the various sport and exterior design packages, as well as the more aggressive S line pack.

The A6’s new interior is minimalist, but it also looks stylish and high-tech

Redesigned from the ground up, the A6’s new interior is minimalist, but it also looks stylish and high-tech. The continuous air-vent strip seen in the Q7 SUV and the smaller A4 found its way into the A6 too, but the midsize looks more luxurious thanks to the thick dashboard insert that includes the massive, 10.1-inch infotainment screen. The second display below, which measures 8.6 inches and is used for climate control, comfort functions, and text input, adds to the wagon’s high-tech look.

The new, fully digital, 12.3-inch instrument cluster looks imposing too, but this feature doesn’t come standard. In order to have it in the car, you need to order the MMI Navigation Plus option. Do that, and you’ll also get multi-function buttons on the steering wheel to access the navigation features. The head-up display that projects information onto the windshield is also optional.

Being a premium car, the A6 Avant is well appointed even in basic trim, but you can opt for an additional four equipment lines: Sport, Design, Design Selection, and S Line Sport. Each comes with its own color concept and add premium Valcona leather and open-pore wood trim. The seats have been redesigned for improved comfort and support, but the ones in the range-topping models have customized contour for the front seats, as well as various adjustment functions. Ventilation and massage features are optional, which the S Sport package adds seats with integrated headrests.

Other options include the air quality package with two different fragrances as well as the ionizer, the large panoramic glass sunroof, and the adaptive windshield wipers with integrated washer jets in the wiper blades.

Luggage room is rated at 20 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 59.3 cubic feet with the seats folded flat

As far as dimensions go, the cabin is a tad larger than the outgoing model, and Audi claims that it provides more front and rear elbow room as well as more rear knee room than the competition. Luggage room is rated at 20 cubic-feet with the rear seats up and 59.3 cubic-feet with the seats folded flat. That’s plenty of room for a midsize wagon and puts the A6 Avant on par with the competition. The BMW 5 Series Touring also provides 20 cubic-feet, while the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon offers 20.5 cubic-feet with the rear seats up. When it comes to maximum space, the A6 Avant falls behind the Bimmer, which offers 60 cubic-feet, but provides more than the Merc, which is rated at 57.4 cubic-feet.

The tailgate and the luggage compartment cover open electrically as standard on the new model, while sensor control is optional. Just like in the outgoing model, the luggage compartment is equipped with the company’s proven rail system as standard, giving customers the option to individually position four variable lashing points to secure objects. The package also includes a tensioning strap, a net, and two hooks. The optional load-securing kit with telescopic bar and strap allows further individual sectioning of the luggage compartment.

2019 Audi A6 Avant Drivetrain

  • Gas and diesel V-6 engines
  • 340 horsepower
  • Up to 457 pound-feet of torque
  • Mild hybrid system
  • Up to 43 mpg U.K. cycle
  • 7-speed S Tronic
  • 8-speed Tiptronic
  • Standard AWD
  • Optional all-wheel steering

The gas 3.0-liter TFSI V-6 produces 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque

The Avant gets the same engines as the new A6 sedan, which is available with two drivetrains from launch. First up is a 3.0-liter, TFSI, V-6 which produces 340 turbocharged horses and 369 pound-feet of torque. Charging from 0 to 62 mph should take 5.2 seconds, a tenth-second slower than the sedan. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph as usual. This version should return up to 35 mpg on the British cycle.

Next up is a diesel, which also comes in a 3.0-liter V-6 configuration. Output is rated at 286 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of twist. While performance figures aren’t yet available, the diesel version returns more miles per tank, being rated at 43 mpg in the U.K.

Both engines are fitted with a mild hybrid system, which includes a belt alternator starter that recovers up to 12 kW with the 48V system during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery. With the engine switched off, the A6 Avant can coast between 55 and 160 km/h (34 to 99 mph). The start-stop system kicks in at 22 km/h (14 mph).

While the gas engine mates to a seven-speed S Tronic and the diesel comes with an eight-speed Tiptronic, both versions get the company’s already iconic Quattro all-wheel-drive system. If that’s not enough for you, there’s an optional sport differential that actively distributes the power between the rear wheels when cornering at high speed.

Audi also offers the dynamic all-wheel steering for this model. At speeds up to 37 mph, the rear wheels turn as much as five degrees in the opposite direction. This not only makes the A6 Avant highly maneuverable, but it also reduces the turning circle of the car by up to 3.3 feet. It also increases agility in corners and driving stability at speeds above 37 mph, in which situation the front and rear axles steer in the same direction.

There are plenty of choices to make in the suspension department too, where Audi offers four setups. There’s the standard steel-spring suspension, the sport suspension, the suspension with shock absorber control, and the adaptive air suspension. In addition to the shock absorbers and the air springs, the electronic chassis platform also controls the dynamic all-wheel steering and the sport differential. Settings include comfort, auto, and dynamic.

2019 Audi A6 Avant Safety

  • Adaptive Cruise Assist
  • Emergency Assist
  • Pre Sense package
  • Crossing Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Assist
2019 Audi A6 Avant Exterior

The adaptive cruise assist takes care of slowing down and braking in stop-and-go traffic

The A6 sedan is a state-of-the-art machine when it comes to safety and driver assisting features, and the wagon benefits from the same attributes. One key feature is the adaptive cruise assist with narrowed road assist, which takes care of slowing down and braking in stop-and-go traffic and at driving speeds up 155 mph. This function also helps maintain the set speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead.

Then there’s Emergency Assist, which enhances safety by detecting when the driver fails to act and providing a visual, acoustic or haptic warning. If the driver doesn’t respond to the warning, the Emergency Assist system takes over, turns on the hazard warning lights and automatically brings the A6 to a complete stop in its lane. This system also activates the Pre Sense protection measures, such as seat belt tensioning, window closing, and automatically makes an emergency call.

Other features include Crossing Assist, which detects crossing traffic in front of the car, and Audi Pre Sense 360, which detects collision hazards. Rear Cross Traffic Assist makes it easier to exit a parallel parking space. Exit Warning and Lane Change round off the safety package.

2019 Audi A6 Avant Prices

Pricing information is not yet available, but it’s safe to assume that the new generation with come with a small premium. With the outgoing model priced from £35,305, the new A6 Avant should cost at least £36,500 before options. Unfortunately, the A6 Avant won’t make it in the United States.

2019 Audi A6 Avant Competition

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon

2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon High Resolution Exterior

The E-Class was the first to arrive from this new wave of midsize wagons, but it’s far from old. Unveiled for the 2017 model year, the E-Class Wagon is as fresh as it gets, and needless to say, it’s among the most modern vehicles on the road. Based on the latest E-Class sedan, it’s both stylish and sporty. The wide front grille gives it a planted stance, while the profile is a bit more muscular than the A6 Avant’s. The rear, on the other hand, is more on the utilitarian side thanks to the horizontal taillights and the clean design. The interior is gorgeous to look at and lacks nothing when it comes to appointments and technology. Fitted with Merc’s latest features, it also features the Drive Pilot, which enables the vehicle to follow the car in front at speeds of up to 130 mph. The Steering Pilot also enables the wagon to handle moderate bends, which gives it semi-autonomous capability. The steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons is a world-first feature and detects horizontal and vertical swipes, just like the screen of a smartphone. Six engines are available for this model, starting with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 181 horsepower and 221 pound-feet or 208 horses and 258 pound-feet. Next up is the 3.0-liter inline-six that delivers 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet. As for diesels, there’s a four-cylinder with either 148 horsepower and 265 pound-feet or 191 horsepower and 295 pound-feet and a six-cylinder rated at 254 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of twist. Pricing for this wagon starts from £38,030 in the United Kingdom. In the U.S., it retails from $63,050.

BMW 5 Series Touring

Unveiled for the 2018 model year, the 5 Series Touring is also as fresh as they get. The styling of the new 5 Series is definitely evolutionary, just like the Audi, but the Bimmer benefits from a more contoured exterior with a beefed-up beltline and more muscular fascias. As usual, the wagon version retains most of the aggressiveness of the sedan. The interior si clean and simple, but unlike the competition, BMW went with a more cluttered center stack. It’s not all that bad, but Audi went with the more modern design here. Other than that, the 5 Series has everything it takes to compete here. It’s packed with fine materials, state-of-the-art tech, and it looks like a nice place to spend time in. As usual, there’s a wide range of engines to choose from. There’s the 530i with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo rated at 252 horsepower and 258 pound-feet and the 540i with the larger, 3.0-liter six-cylinder that makes 340 horses and 332 pound-feet. If you’re into diesels, you can choose between the 520d with 190 horsepower and 295 pound-feet and the 530d with 265 horses and 457 pound-feet of twist. The 5 Series Touring isn’t available Stateside, but it starts from £40,025 in the U.K., which makes it the most expensive of the bunch.

Volvo V90

Based on the state-of-the-art S90 sedan that replaced the traditional S80, the V90 competes in this niche with a different approach. Although Volvo wagons aren’t as boxy as they used to be, the V90 boasts significantly more premium features that its predecessors. The vertical, tablet-like infotainment display, the optional carbon-fiber, and the sporty, leather-wrapped seats turned the Volvo station wagon from a hearse with seating for five into a full-fledged luxury grocery getter. The approach is different under the hood too. Whereas the German cars get six-cylinder engines too, the V90 is restricted to four-cylinder units. Output isn’t an issue though. While the T5 cranks out 254 horsepower and 258 pound-feet, the T6 makes 316 horses and 295 pound-feet. The diesel lineup includes three engines that deliver between 150 horsepower and 236 pound-feet to 225 horses and 346 pound-feet. A hybrid is offered too, in the form of a T8 drivetrain good for a whopping 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet. British pricing starts from £37,620, but the V90 is also available in the U.S. in Cross Country trim from $52,300.

Conclusion

2019 Audi A6 Avant Exterior
- image 776972

Much like the sedan, the wagon version of the A6 has been a solid choice in this segment ever since it was introduced back in the 1990s. The nameplate has seen massive improvements since, being transformed from a somewhat upscale wagon into a full-fledged competitor for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5 Series. After seven years on the market, the A6 was finally redesigned and received all the niceties it needed to catch up with the competition. Although it may still lack the sportiness of the BMW and Mercedes models design-wise, its subdued appearance is what makes it stands out. The interior is rock-solid in just about every department, while drivetrain choices include two powerful engines for every taste. Sure, the A6 Avant could use a bit more diversity under the hood, but Audi will probably add more options soon. The only downside here is that the Germans still don’t want to send the big Avant to the U.S. Not even in Allroad trim.

  • Leave it
    • * Could use more engines
    • * Not coming to the U.S.

The new Audi A6 Avant combines dynamic design with superb everyday utility and excellent adaptability. The rear has a striking design, yet offers a flexible luggage compartment concept with 565 to 1,680 liters (20.0 – 59.3 cu ft) of capacity. The drive and suspension are designed with comfort and sportiness in mind. The standard mild hybrid system boosts efficiency while the dynamic all-wheel steering enhances maneuverability and agility. With its intuitive operation, the fully digital MMI touch response operating system offers a high level of convenience for driver and passengers.

Aesthetics and functionality – the exterior design
Attractive station wagons go by the name of Avant – the new A6 Avant continues this aspiration of the Audi brand. With sharp lines, large surfaces and the distinctive low-profile rear window, the exterior design reflects new design language of the brand. At just under five meters (16.4 ft) long, the Avant exudes elegance, sportiness and sophistication with its long front end and gently sloping roofline.

A wide, low Singleframe grille dominates the front, while the elongated silhouette and trapezoidal window surfaces dominate the side view. Distinctively shaped blisters, which visually emphasize the quattro drive, extend over the wheel housings. The muscular roofline flows into the low-profile D-pillar. The roof edge spoiler extends the silhouette and underlines the sporty look of the A6 Avant. At the rear, a decorative trim provides a link between the lights. In addition to the twelve paint colors, customers can choose from the optional sport and design exterior equipment lines as well as the S line exterior package.

Inviting – body, spaciousness and luggage compartment
The new Audi A6 Avant is 4.94 meters (16.2 ft) long, 1.89 meters (6.2 ft) wide and 1.47 meters (4.8 ft) high. Its interior is even larger than on the predecessor model. It beats the competition with front and rear elbow room as well as with knee room in the rear seat area.

Despite the sporty lines, the new A6 Avant retains the spacious luggage compartment capacity of its predecessor. The luggage compartment provides a loading width of 1,050 millimeters (3.5 ft) and a capacity 565 liters (20.0 cu ft) in the basic configuration, increasing to 1,680 liters (59.3 cu ft) with the backrests folded down. The tailgate and the luggage compartment cover open electrically as standard; an optional sensor control is available for the tailgate. The rear seats can be folded 40:20:40 as a standard.An electric release function is available for the optional trailer hitch.

The luggage compartment is equipped with the proven rail system as a standard. Customers can individually position four variable lashing points to secure objects. The A6 Avant also includes a tensioning strap, a net and two hooks. The optional load-securing kit with telescopic bar and strap allows individual sectioning of the luggage compartment.

The new A6 Avant is at home on long journeys, also thanks to the low interior noise level. The aerodynamics and aeroacoustics are top-class; the drag coefficient of the entry-level engine, which will go on sale after the market launch, is 0.27. The body made of steel and aluminum components offers extraordinary rigidity.

Safety first – lighting technology and driver assistance systems
The A6 Avant comes with a comprehensive package of safety systems, including lighting technology, assistance systems and passive safety. LED headlights are standard on the new Audi A6 Avant. Three versions are available, with the HD Matrix LED headlights with high-resolution high beam as the top-of-the-line version. Five horizontal lines draw the daylight running light signature with this option. The dynamic turn signal and the pulsating coming-home and leaving-home sequences emphasize the distinctive character of the A6 family. The optional contour ambient lighting package brings the interior design specifically to life.

With frequent drivers and commuters in mind, the A6 Avant provides an extensive range of driver assistance systems, divided into the “City” and “Tour” packages. In addition to the standard emergency braking assist Audi pre sense front, the driver assistance systems also include adaptive cruise assist with narrowed road assist. It supports longitudinal and lateral control in stop-and-go traffic right down to a standstill and at driving speeds up to 250 kilometers/hour (155.3 mph) and supports the driver by accelerating and braking. The assistance function also helps maintain the set speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead in congested traffic as well as in narrow situations.

For the additional efficiency assistant function, the adaptive cruise assist predictively factors in speed limits, bends, roundabouts and – if route guidance is active – also turnings as part of the cruise control function. Besides the predictive information in the instrument cluster, the efficiency assistant also provides haptic feedback via the active gas pedal. Together with the MHEV system, these assistance functions can help promote fuel economy.

Emergency assist enhances safety by recognizing when the driver fails to act and providing a visual, acoustic or haptic warning. If the driver fails to respond, the system takes over, turns on the hazard warning lights and automatically brings the A6 to a stop in its own lane. The system activates Audi pre sense protection measures, such as seat belt tensioning, window closing, and automatically makes an emergency call.

Five functions support the driver in urban traffic: Crossing assist detects critical crossing traffic in front of the car; the Audi pre sense 360° system detects collision hazards; rear cross traffic assist monitors slow reversing, such as exiting a parallel parking space. Exit warning and lane change warning supplement the package.

These functions are managed in an Audi high-end module, which is fitted in the new A6 Avant as a standard: the central driver assistance controller, which continuously computes a differentiated image of the car’s surroundings. To do this, depending on the equipment level, it uses data from as many as five radar sensors, five cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors and the laser scanner.

Efficient and powerful – all engines with mild hybrid technology
All engines are fitted as standard with a mild hybrid system, which further increases comfort and efficiency and can reduce fuel consumption in real-world driving. The belt alternator starter, the heart of the MHEV system, recovers up to 12 kW with the 48 V system during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery. With the engine switched off, the new Audi A6 Avant can coast between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 – 99.4 mph); the start-stop already kicks in at 22 km/h (13.7 mph).

The engines put their power onto the road with a seven-speed S tronic or an eight-speed tiptronic and the quattro all-wheel drive. The optional sport differential that actively distributes the power between the rear wheels when cornering at speed provides the ideal complement.

Comfortable and agile like never before – the suspension
The suspension on the new A6 Avant offers an even larger spread between dynamics and comfort than its predecessor. The standard progressive steering is highly comfortable to use. With an already sporty steering ratio, it becomes increasingly direct with increasing steering angle. The new control concept for the electromechanical steering also provides intense feedback from the road while eliminating unpleasant jolts from the steering wheel.

Audi offers the dynamic all-wheel steering as an option, which makes the A6 Avant highly maneuverable. At speeds up to 60 km/h (37.3 mph), the rear wheels turn as much as five degrees in the opposite direction. This reduces the turning circle of the nearly five-meter long (16.4 ft) Avant by up to one meter (3.3 ft) to 11.1 (36.4 ft) meters. Whether parking, maneuvering or driving in urban traffic – you do not notice the size of the A6 Avant in everyday situations. The dynamic all-wheel steering also increases agility in corners and driving stability at higher speeds above 60 km/h (37.3 mph). In this situation, the front and rear axles steer in the same direction to enhance stability.

Customers have a choice of four suspension variants: the standard steel-spring suspension, the sport suspension, the suspension with shock absorber control and the adaptive air suspension, also with controlled shock absorbers. In addition to the shock absorbers and the air springs, the electronic chassis platform (ECP) also controls the dynamic all-wheel steering and the updated sport differential, which actively distributes the drive torque as needed between the rear wheels during fast cornering. The driver can adjust the settings for all controlled suspensions in the Audi drive select dynamic handling system – in the modes comfort, auto and dynamic. The dynamic all-wheel steering varies its ratio and the degree of feedback, for example. The new Audi A6 Avant stands on wheels measuring up to 21 inches, which provide exceptional ride and noise comfort even at this size.

House beautiful – interior and equipment
The interior of the new Audi A6 Avant features stylish, minimalist architecture which fuses harmoniously with the operating concept. A black panel surface with the embedded top MMI touch response display dominates the sleek instrument panel. Just like the bottom display on the center tunnel console, it is angled slightly toward the driver. The horizontally oriented lines in the interior reinforce the impression of a large space where all elements relate logically to each other.

Depending on the customer’s wishes, the interior of the new Audi A6 Avant can take on entirely different personalities. In addition to the basic version, four equipment lines are available, each with its own color concept: sport, design, design selection and the S line sport package. The colors seem progressive and elegant, the materials – through to the Valcona leather and the trim strips in open-pore wood – are sophisticated, as one would expect from Audi. The S line exterior package is also available for all equipment lines.

The seats in the Audi A6 Avant were completely redeveloped. The top-of-the-line options include the customized contour front seats with numerous adjustment functions, optionally fitted with ventilation and massage function, as well as the S sport seats with integrated head restraints.

Other options include the air quality package with two different fragrances as well as the ionizer, the large panoramic glass sunroof and the adaptive windshield wipers with integrated washer jets in the wiper blades on the windshield and rear window.

Intuitive and logical – the MMI touch response operating system
The driver executes nearly all functions on two large displays in the MMI touch response operating concept of the new Audi A6 Avant. The driver manages infotainment and navigation on the top display with its 10.1-inch screen diagonal – if MMI navigation plus is fitted.

The 8.6-inch display below is used for climate control, comfort functions and text input. The driver’s wrist can rest comfortably on the selector lever while operating the functions. Thanks to its haptic and acoustic feedback, the MMI touch response technology is fast and reliable. The MMI menu structure is logical and flat like on a smartphone; the driver can customize the arrangement of many icons on the bottom start screen.

MMI navigation plus also includes the fully digital Audi virtual cockpit with its 12.3-inch screen diagonal, which is operated with the multifunction buttons on the steering wheel. The optional head-up display projects information onto the windshield. The natural language voice control turns the new A6 Avant into an intelligent dialog partner. It replies to commands and questions in two ways: with data stored onboard and knowledge from the cloud. The standard personalization offers up to seven individual profiles, allowing several drivers to store up to 400 settings from many areas.

Attentive and accommodating – navigation and Audi connect
The optional MMI navigation plus is the top-of-the-line component in the infotainment range for the new Audi A6 Avant. Its data transfer module supports the LTE Advanced standard and incorporates a WiFi hotspot. The navigation system recognizes the driver’s preferences based on previous journeys and generates intelligent suggestions from this information. The route is calculated online on the servers of service provider HERE and also in the car.

The Audi connect portfolio offers numerous online services, including several Car-to-X services. The optional Audi connect key locks and unlocks the new A6 Avant via an Android smartphone. The myAudi app connects the car with the owner’s smartphone. The Audi phone box supports telephony with the highly convenient Voice-over-LTE protocol. The Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System delivers fascinating 3D sound through a total of 19 loudspeakers, including in the rear.
