Audi RS6 Avant and RS6 Performance review - interior and tech

Audi’s most powerful, fastest estate car may lack ultimate involvement and dynamics, but it’s still one of the best in its class.

Interior and Technology

It’s an Audi, so of course the interior is beyond question when it comes to quality and fit and finish. The flat-bottom steering wheel is a bit passé and on the small side but that’s really it.

The standard equipment list is extensive, with some of the highlights including Matrix LED headlights, head-up display, MMI sta-nav and Audi’s phone box which boost your mobile phone’s reception when connected to the car’s Bluetooth. You’ll also find a Bose 14-speaker stereo on the standard equipment list.

If you want to play with the options you can select items such as Night Vision Assist (£1750), which uses a thermal image to highlight objects at night such as animals and stray humans. There is also a Head-Up display (£1240) on the list for those who struggle to keep an eye on the instrument cluster.
