What the Critics Say

"With performance chops to spare and a properly luxurious interior that can hold more than you'd expect, there's a good reason why people fawn over the RS6.  If you aren't quite ready to embrace the crossover life, this middle-grounder presents a hard opportunity to pass up." -- Roadshow by CNET

""Surprising usefulness aside, it's hard to treat the RS 6 objectively. As an enthusiast in America, driving this wagon is a dream come to life. An excellent cabin, gigantic straight-line capabilities, and scorching looks solidify its position as the coolest thing Audi has sold in the U.S. since the manual R8." -- Road and Track
