Car reviews - Audi - A6 - Avant 5-dr wagon range
Audi's A6 Avant is back to battle the big guns from Mercedes and BMW
4 Jun 2012
AUDI is only offering its seventh-generation Audi A6 wagon (or Avant if you speak Audish) with four-cylinder engines and front-wheel drive, which is a sign of the times if nothing else.
The A6 Avant has a small but loyal following in Australia and is expected to remain a niche product here, contributing less than 10 per cent of A6 sales.
A lightweight design with no unnecessary added bulk or all-wheel-drive systems, the A6 Avant provides an antithesis to the now-ubiquitous hulking SUV, but does the Audi compete with its German rivals beyond its attractive price?
Model release date: 1 June 2012 to 1 February 2015

AUDI sold the standard previous-generation A6 Avant for a couple of years before it was discontinued in favour of the madcap V10-powered RS6 Avant and jacked-up, diesel-only Allroad quasi-SUV.
