What the Critics Say

"Derived from the already-excellent Audi A6 sedan, the souped-up station wagon adds RS-specific bodywork and exclusive go-fast goodies. While alternatives such as the Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon and the mightiest Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo currently rule the long-roof roost, the forthcoming 2020 RS6 Avant could conquer them all." -- Car and Driver

"The styling itself is also specific to the RS model, with a unique fascia and very aggressive rear bumper that features huge oval tailpipes wrapped in a fat piece of silver trim. Only the roof, front doors and tailgate are shared with the regular A6 Avant. It just keeps getting cooler, right?" -- Autoblog
