Audi reveals 2019 A6 Avant (C8) with a more spacious and digitalized interior

Just a month ago, Audi unveiled the all-new A6 Sedan (C8), and it seems more comfortable, sportily elegant and digitalized than its predecessor. The German premium carmaker didn’t wait long to reveal the more practical version of the new A6 Sedan – the new 2019 Audi A6 Avant (C8) – featuring the same stunning design and spacious interior.

As a twin of the new Audi A6 Sedan, the A6 Avant features a striking and dynamic design, especially at the front half. The A6 Avant looks very much the same as the A6 Sedan, except for the rear half that has designed to deliver a more spacious cabin that is more practical for both passengers and cargo. In terms of dimensions, the new Audi A6 Avant measures 4.94 meters (16.2 ft) in length, 1.89 meters (6.2 ft) in width and 1.47 meters (4.8 ft) in height. With these dimensions, the interior of the new A6 Avant is larger than on its predecessor. It also offers larger front and rear elbow rooms as well as larger rear knee room.

In terms of luggage space, the new A6 Avant is as spacious as its predecessor, with a loading width of 1,050 mm (3.5 ft) and a capacity 565 liters (20.0 cu. ft.). When the backrests are folded down, the cargo capacity surges to 1,680 liters (59.3 cu. ft.). As standard, the tailgate and the luggage compartment cover of the A6 Avant open electrically. However, the tailgate could be availed with an optional sensor control.

2018 Audi RS4 Avant and RS5 Coupe get Carbon Edition bodywork

Were you ever a fan of the Audi RS4 Avant or the RS5 Coupe? If you were, we have something even flashier for you - that is if you are the kind of person who likes to stand out of the crowd. It is the all new Carbon Edition for both high-performance models. Instantly, you would think of a massive weight loss, but that is not all because the vehicles will also come with an RS sport exhaust and matrix LED headlights.

Given that name, we would expect the models to have a body that has been given carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) components. True enough, certain parts including the front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser insert and mirror caps have all been swapped with carbon fiber. There is also some noticeable carbon fiber trim on the interior and the engine cover. The RS5’s roof has been replaced by this, saving it a total of 6 pounds 10 ounces (3 kilograms).

Other than the carbon fiber bits, the Carbon Edition also includes a few other accents to add some style to the car. The radiator grille on the front fascia now has a matte aluminum finish, and matte titanium materials can be found on the Quattro logo as well as the window surrounds. To finish this off, the windows had been given a darker tint as well.

Audi RS4 Avant and RWD R8 GT are expected to debut at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

A lot of us are very excited for the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show scheduled to take place in a few weeks. We’re all psyched up to see what cars will debut, which concepts we will see, and what surprises will be in store for us. Here is one thing though, reports suggest that Audi may have something very exciting for the IAA. It’s perfectly timed too as this show is organized to happen only once every two years, alternating with the Paris Motor Show.

There have been earlier news which said that Audi will finally be introducing the production version of the RS4 Avant as a replacement for the RS5 Coupe. Both models come with the same biturbocharged 2.9 liter V6 engine, giving out as much as 450 horsepower and 443 pound feet (600 Newton metres) of torque, paired with an eight speed automatic that gives power to the Quattro all-wheel-drive setup - just like the first ever RS5 Sportback.

Since they will be carrying the same engine, expect the RS4 Avant to perform just like its two-door sibling, except it might take a little longer when doing the 0 to 62 mile per hour sprint) 100 kilometers per hour because of its weight. The RS5 Coupe does the sprint in 3.9 seconds, so the RS4 Avant may hit 62 mph in 4 or 4.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 155 miles per hour (250 kilometers per hour). This can be pushed even further to a maximum of 174 mph (280 kph) with the dynamic package.

After teasing the public for months with photos and videos of its new flagship model, Audi has finally unveiled the fourth generation of the brand’s flagship model -- the 2018 Audi A8 (D5). As introduced, the A8 is a luxury sedan. Nonetheless, it would not hurt to imagine other versions of the A8 sedan, namely as A8 Coupe, A8 Avant, S8 and RS8.

Definitely, it is a struggle to imagine how the new generation of the Audi A8 Sedan would look like when interpreted in other forms. However, thanks to a certain visual designer who goes by the name of X-Tomi Design, fans and enthusiasts don’t need to use their imagination so hard. After all, X-Tomi has made it much easier to visualize how good-looking the A8 would be if created as other vehicle types by rendering the sedan as a coupe, a full-size wagon (Avant) or as high-performance sporty models.

In its coupe form, the Audi A8 – using X-Tomi’s render -- would definitely look spectacular. Interestingly, the A8 Coupe by X-Tomi looks familiar; its styling was similar to the Audi Prologue concept that was unveiled at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. This was all expected, as after all, the new design language that made its debut on the new Audi A8 sedan was actually born out of the Audi Prologue concept, a design study in the form of a coupe. While a coupe version of the A8 really looks impressive, there have been indications that the Audi Prologue Concept is a preview of the upcoming A9 flagship. Nevertheless, an A8 coupe is also a welcomed proposition, if there would be one.

Be prepared to meet the ABT Sportsline RS6+, Audi’s hot and sexy wagon with insane characteristics and high performance capability. ABT, as a brand, has always kept us fascinated all these years. Because of this, it seems to have every right to go crazy. In fact, ABT Sportsline is set to bring a horde of insanely hot cars at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. One of which is the flaming hot Audi RS6 Avant with a show-stopping 695 horsepower underneath.

ABT Sportsline has yet to release the acceleration numbers on the RS6+ at this time. All the same, the stock version already boasts quite an impressive acceleration. In this case, the RS6 Avant can go from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds and from nil to 124mph (200 km/h in 12.1 seconds).

As the event is now ongoing, the German auto tuning company has finally unleashed the ABT RS6+, which will only be limited to 50 examples. Because of the boosted performance that comes from ABT’s control unit, all 50 examples will be featuring a highly impressive 695hp (705 PS) and 649 (880 Nm) lb-ft of powerful torque.

Audi’s S4 Avant isn’t the premium luxury car you’re used to hearing about. While it may have an understated look, the Audi S4 Avant does feature a powerful engine that is complemented by an array of advanced technologies. But if you want more, you could go and visit ABT Sportsline, which is offering a unique package that breaks the current dynamic limits of the present S4 Avant.

The current Audi S4 Avant is powered by a new turbocharged V6 TFSI engine, replacing the supercharged unit of its predecessors. Serving as the core of the S4 Avant is a recently developed turbocharged V6 engine with petrol direct injection. This 3.0 TFSI V6 powerplant is tuned to deliver 354 PS (349 hp) of max output and 500 Nm (368.8 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available in broad range of engine speeds ranging from 1,300 rpm to 4,500 rpm. Compared to its predecessor, the new turbocharged V6 TFSI engine is more powerful while being lighter and more fuel-efficient. This allows the Audi S4 to dash from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.7 seconds and to reach a top speed that’s electronically limited at 155 mph (250 km/h).

ABT Sportsline, however, thinks that the Audi S4 Avant isn’t powerful and quick enough with its 354 PS of output, 550 Nm of torque and 4.7 seconds of zero-to-62 mph sprint time. This is why the tuner from Germany is kind enough to create a new package that would bump up the performance level of the Audi S4 Avant’s 3.0-liter TFSI V6 petrol engine. This new performance package is designed to increase the max output level of the Audi S4 Avant 354 PS (349 hp) to 425 PS (419 hp). In addition, ABT Sportsline’s new performance package is able to hike the amount of peak torque that the V6 engine could produce from 500 Nm (368.8 lb.-ft.) to 550 Nm (406 lb.-ft.).

Audi’s RS range has two new ‘performance’ models -- the RS 7 Sportback and RS 6 Avant. These two additions make the RS badge proud with a 45PS increase in power to 605PS and 50Nm additional torque resulting in 750Nm total torque.

While it improves the output, resulting to a 3.7-second record for a 0-60mph sprint, the two models boast of having excellent fuel economy the RS is known for. In fact, it has the same low fuel consumption figures of its ‘standard’ counterparts that are the best in their class.

The peak 605PS power output and maximum torque of 700Nm are due to the 4.0-litre TFSI engine. But it comes with the overboost function capable of increasing torque to as high as 750Nm. For those interested, the RS 6 Avant and the RS 7 Sportback will be available in the UK for orders starting in November with the first deliveries scheduled for next February.
