All-New 2019 Audi A6 Avant Performs Admirably In First Review

Since its unveiling back in April, the 2019 Audi A6 Avant is finally ready to be put through its paces by automotive journalists who work in markets where Audi doesn’t shy away from selling wagons.

Sadly, this means that the all-new 2019 A6 will only reach U.S. shores in 4-door sedan form, but in markets such as Europe, the Avant model will be featured heavily, as most buyers truly appreciate things such as having additional practicality.

The E-Class Estate and 5-Series Touring rival was reviewed recently by Autogefuhl in 45 TFSI quattro spec. This means it’s powered by a 2.0-liter 245 PS turbocharged petrol unit, which also produces 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque. Meanwhile, helping the car get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.8 seconds is a 7-speed S tronic gearbox.

In terms of performance, the 45 TFSI model is actually a little slower than the 45 TDI, which has a little less horsepower, but plenty more torque at 500 Nm (368 lb-ft). Still, the reviewer enjoyed driving the 45 TFSI, saying that he would actually recommend getting this 2.0-liter turbo petrol engine on A6 Avant.

Close to mid-way through the review, there’s also a long shot of the test car’s equipment list, which shows a great deal of expensive options on-board, such as the Business Package, Tour Assist Package, S line exterior package, Audi Exclusive paint, Full Leather package, Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium sound system and loads more.

As for the rest of the review, it’s very in-depth, so if you’re interested in the A6 Avant, you should definitely stick around for the whole thing.
