Audi Will Bring The A6 And RS6 Avant To The US

Wagon lovers rejoice!

https://carbuzz.com/news/exclusive-a...vant-to-the-us

We've known for a while that Audi is working on a new RS7 Sportback, which will rival the new BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG. The new RS7 will boast over 600 horsepower from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 shared with the Porsche Panamera, though some rumors have pointed towards a hybrid drivetrain borrowed from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.

Now, an inside source at Audi has told us the next-generation RS7 will be joined by a more practical sibling, the RS6 Avant. Our source spoke to two Audi USA Executives, who confirmed that both the A6 and RS6 Avant models will be sold in the US market by 2020. If this information is accurate, our prayers for a fast Audi wagon in the US will finally be answered, hallelujah!

This is some of the best car news I have read in a while. I hope they depreciate like an anvil in water sinks. It could happen. You can get a 5 year old RS7 right now for about half the price of what it cost when new now.

If this turns out to be true, I'll probably have an A6 Avant in my garage in the next three years. It's one of those cars that I'm willing to give up the manual for - and those are words that I never thought I'd utter.

I've heard the rumors for while so this is great news... The way I see it, sometime around 2023 I may be looking to trade in the Allroad...

For sure The employee deals at Audi are pretty damn good. A co-worker is leasing a new loaded S4 for $550 a month. $0 down, 15k miles/year

Got a plan, you order it, I will make the payments, and you can drive it to work once a month saying it is your weekend car

I like Morgan's thinking too.

^ I like that idea too. Order two of them - I'll make the payments on the other one. But you have to come to VA to drive it

Hey he is doing you a favor. I will deliver to his door once a month for him to have it for his day as my part for him getting me the discount. Not that it would happen
