2020 Audi A4 Avant
Audi’s current sedan lineup consists of the A8, the A7, and the A6, followed by the A4 taking up the smallest slot of them all. Among these four-door nameplates, Audi also offers a variety of wagon iterations for added practicality, and now it’s looking like the compact A4 Avant is close to an extensive refresh, as revealed in a series of spy shots that capture a new prototype out and about for some cold-weather testing in Sweden. Updates are likely to include fresh exterior styling, a sleeker interior layout, and the very latest technology for convenience, entertainment, and safety.
Watch an Old-School Audi S4 with Bugatti-Like Power Make the 1/2-Mile Scream for Mercy
The Audi S4 B5 is old, but gold. Not only does it cost a small fortune if it’s in good condition, but some owners do tend to tune it to insanity regardless of its status.
How insane is this one here?
Bugatti Chiron-rivaling insane. I’m not freaking joking as just the other day an old Audi S4 B5 was filmed in Germany rushing to hit the half-mile mark. Clawing its way with all four tires that barely keep it on the ground and the straight line, this particular Audi S4 B5 has a masterfully tuned engine that delivers an insane 1,442 horsepower. Or apparently, 1,442 horsepower, because my reason does not allow me to believe everything I hear on the Internet.
Nevertheless, the half-mile run during which this wagon achieved 190 mph suggests that 1,442 horsepower may just be right.
Watch this Insane Audi RS6 Hit 204 MPH From a Dig: Video
The Audi RS6 Avant is a 605-horsepower machine of epic proportions. Unfortunately, the RS6 Avant isn’t available in the U.S. That leaves us in a bit of an emotional pickle when we see videos like this. For the record, the Audi RS6 in this video isn’t your standard RS6. It’s been tuned to produce a staggering 1,012 horsepower, and as you might expect, it showed out in ways that only a 1,012 horsepower Audi RS6 can.
13 Crossover Wagons You Could Buy Instead of an SUV
High-riding vehicles, like crossovers and SUVs are at the height of popularity right now, but they’re not the only way to go if you want practicality and some off-road capability. Crossover style raised wagons are a great alternative and while they can still drive you over a rough field or rutted road with ease, they’re better to drive on road and actually pretty stylish.
They are essentially the wagon versions of different cars which have gained extra ride height and plastic cladding on the outside to protect them from scratches in their most vulnerable points. These vehicles usually have standard all-wheel drive and are usually a higher trim level, so they are not cheap (compared to the vehicle they’re based on) but they also come with a lot of equipment.
Here’s a list of the 13 coolest crossover-style wagons you can buy today.
The Audi-based FitCar PPV is a Car That Helps You Get Fit Every Time You Drive It!
Have people made you feel guilty about taking your car to the nearby grocery store? Here’s a slap to their face known as the FitCar PPV. A Saudi-based inventor, Nasser Al Shawaf, and Dutch engineering partner, BPO, have created the world’s first calorie-burning car, the FitCar PPV. The FitCar is a genuine pedal-powered vehicle wherein you find a pedal mechanism instead of an accelerator pedal.
2018 Audi RS6-E Hybrid Concept by ABT
After a short teasing campaign, the German tuner Abt revealed their newest work of art. Actually, “work of mad.” Based on top of the already frighteningly fast Audi RS6, Abt showcased the RS6-E Hybrid Concept, a car featuring a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 and a freaking 288 horsepower electric motor strapped to the transmission.
Please welcome the first hyper-wagon with 1,004 horsepower. Of course, it had to be an Audi.
The S-Line Competition Package Gives the Refreshed Audi A4 Some Extra Value
Three years after the current generation was launched, Audi has finally revealed the facelifted 2019 A4 sedan and A4 Avant. The revised A4 gets minor exterior upgrades and an all-new S-Line Competition Equipment Package, but for now, these updates are limited to the European market. We do expect the U.S.-spec A4 to get the same changes as well, but when that will happen is another story.
2019 Audi RS6 Avant
The new Audi RS6 Avant has been spotted covered in partial camouflage while making the test rounds recently. The high-performance wagon model of the A6 sedan is the latest Audi model to be captured by spy photographers. If anything, this shows that Audi’s test drivers have had their work cut out of them. The sporty station wagon was even spotted alongside the RS Q8 SUV.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad
A prototype version of the new Audi A6 Allroad has been spotted on a test run, suggesting that we could be close to seeing the new model make its debut. While it does look like an old test mule for the Audi A6 Avant, there’s no question that this is the A6 Allroad given how much higher it rides compared to the Avant and the base A6 sedan.
2019 Audi S6 Avant
Produced since 1994, the S6 is Audi’s go-faster version of the A6, slotting in under the even-faster RS6 variants. Currently offered as the fourth-generation C7, Audi revealed its fifth-gen A6 at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, and as such, a new S6 is on the way, as evidenced by this long-roofed Avant wagon prototype recently spied undergoing a bit of cold-weather testing. Read on for our speculative review on what we think it’ll bring to the table (beyond the groceries, obviously).

2019 Audi A6 Avant
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.

Want a Performance Wagon Other than a AMG E 63 S or the Panamera Sport Turismo? Tell Audi You Want an RS Avant
The Audi RS Avant super wagons aren’t available in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean the status quo isn’t going to change. Audi is open to bringing its rip-roaring machines to the land of milk and honey; it just needs to make a good business case for it. In that vein, fans of the RS 4 and RS 6 Avants can do their part to convince Audi by “writing letters” to the German automaker. Tongue-in-cheek hints aside, these letters could go a long way in establishing a viable marketplace for both super wagons.
Audi May Bring RS Avant Models To The U.S. But It’s A Reach
Who doesn’t love a fast wagon? We’re certainly pretty big fans, and we can’t help but dribble a bit when considering the prospect of getting into something like Audi’s line of RS Avants. Now, it looks like the Four-Ring brand is actually considering bringing these quick-’n-practical machines stateside. Maybe. Hopefully? All told, the brand isn’t ruling it out - we’ll take it.

Petrolicious Features A ‘90s Audi Wagon That’s Ready To Hit The Slopes
The calendar might be saying March, but all over the country, the white stuff keeps on falling. Of course, as Mark Birch will tell you, that’s no big deal if you’ve got the right vehicle. You see, this Four-Ring enthusiast is rocking a ’94 Audi RS2 wagon, which mates an eternally desirable five-cylinder power plant in the nose with quattro AWD grip in the corners. As a result, it can churn powder with the best of ‘em.
With a ski rack up top and loads of space in the rear, this German five-door has an impressive amount of cargo room to haul whatever you want. Throw some cold-weather rubber under the fenders, and it’s pretty much the perfect daily driver for the mountains. Unfortunately, finding spare parts for these rarities can be pretty tricky, as Birch found out after another driver took the bumper off his wagon in a crash.
But while firing up only on the weekends might improve the Audi’s chances of staving off another collision, this Audi doesn’t want to stay parked. “It wants to be used all the time. So we use it as a family quite a lot, we use it for going on holiday, going away for the weekend.” Birch explains. “It’s a great car, it’s meant to be used.”
We love this thing. It’s a do-anything, go-anywhere, AWD luxury car that’s comfortable when you need it and quick when you want it. Wagons for the win.
John Olsson’s New Ride is A Two-Faced RS6 With Sinister Intentions
Jon Olsson is known for his love of cars and owning some of the most desirable custom-built exotics in the world. The Swedish alpine ski racer is particularly fond of the Audi RS6 Avant. He once owned a heavily tuned RS6 Avant that met an untimely end when it was stolen and burned to a crisp. Not one to be unnerved by the circumstances that befell his ride, Olsson bought a new RS6 Avant before turning it over to ABT Sportsline for a little tuning job. The result is the Audi RS6 Phoenix.
