Audi RS6 Avant is the Audi R18 e-tron quattro for the road (video)Mon, 12 Aug 2013
Audi compare the Audi R18 e-tron quattro (pictured) to the RS6 Avant
We’re not entirely sure how Audi has come to the conclusion that the RS6 Avant is comparable to the Audi R18 e-tron quattro, but they have. In a new video to promote the RS6 Avant – perhaps the pick of the crop of current uber-estates – Audi has the e-tron quattro out on the road in a series of familiar everyday pursuits.
So we get the e-tron quattro waiting patiently to collect hubby from the airport, as the c ar to drive to the hills to ride a mountain bike, outside a hotel with luggage on the pavement, collecting the kids from school, parked on the river bank for a fishing trip and as a dog transporter.
We’re assuming that – even though the RS6 Avant is neither a hybrid or a diesel – Audi are saying that the RS6 Avant is capable of all these everyday tasks but can still turn in to a supercar with a flick of your right foot. And they’re not wrong.
The latest RS6 Avant seems to be the car Audi always wanted it to be; fast, comfortable (yes, a quick Audi that doesn’t need a season ticket to the chiropractors), dynamic and still able to lug loads, kids, shopping, luggage…
It’s an odd comparison between the RS6 Avant and e-tron quattro, but it does get the point across.
