Audi RS 6 Avant: Interior
The interior of the new RS 6 Avant offers an experience that exudes sporty exclusiveness. It is crafted with the impeccable quality for which Audi is renowned, from such sophisticated materials as carbon fiber, aluminum, leather and Alcantara. These materials create an atmosphere of refined dynamics and elegantly conceal all of the high-tech engineering that lies beneath.
RS 6 Avant customers can choose between two steering wheels: The multifunctional sport steering wheel with three-spoke design and the RS multifunctional sport steering wheel.
The RS version which can optionally be covered in suede, has a distinctly powerful shape with the kind of flat-bottomed design found in motor racing. Both steering wheel versions have multifunctional controls for operating the telephone, navigation system and audio system. Shift paddles for the tiptronic transmission allow rapid manual shifting, and an RS 6 emblem on the lower spoke adds a distinctive visual touch.
The cockpit perfect ergonomics
The clearly laid out and easily readable instrument package additionally features a turbocharger boost pressure indicator. Like the oil temperature gauge and lap timer, it can be accessed via the driver information system. When the ignition is switched on, both its display and the seven-inch color monitor of the MMI operating system show the RS 6 logo. All switches and levers are perfectly positioned within easy reach and are integrated into the cockpit, which is clearly angled toward the driver, with meticulous devotion to detail.
In numerous tests, the MMI operating system has repeatedly won acclaim from the automotive media for its superior, intuitive concept. Its large buttons and controls on the center tunnel feature a gleaming aluminum-look finish. The electromechanical parking brake that comes as standard equipment eliminates the need for a handbrake lever; in its place is a wide, comfortable center armrest.
The inlays in the new Audi RS 6 Avant are made of carbon fiber neatly edged with fine aluminum trim strips, and the center console is also trimmed in carbon fiber composite. Alternative trim combinations in matt brushed aluminum, fine grain myrtle nutmeg and piano finish are also available. The cockpit fascia, which accommodates the instruments and the monitor, always shines with its black piano finish a little feast for the eyes.
Other special touches in the interior include the aluminum edging around the MMI operating terminal, specially designed door openers, as well as the sport pedals and the footrest, which also come in an aluminum-look finish. The door sills, too, are trimmed with aluminum strips bearing the RS 6 logo. As an option, the headliner and the insides of the columns can be covered in Nardia, an innovative high-tech microfiber.
Firm support the sport seats
The highly contoured sport seats provide the body with the best possible support and an exceptionally firm hold. They be can electrically set to precisely the desired position and feature an integrated head restraint plus a manually adjustable thigh support. The sport seats are upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara, including an embossed RS 6 logo, or they are optionally available with all-leather upholstery in Silk Nappa or Valcona with color-contrasting stitching. RS bucket seats are also optionally available. The front seats and the outer seats in the rear are heated as a standard feature.
The new business class sports car from Audi offers generous space for five passengers and their luggage, with plenty of freedom of movement for heads, arms and legs, both in the front and rear. In its normal configuration, the luggage compartment has a capacity of 565 liters; with the rear backrest folded down, the volume grows to an impressive 1,660 liters. A load-through hatch, roll-up cover blind, a luggage net, a rail system and a twin loading floor with integrated dirt-resistant liner are all included as standard features. And with its low loading lip that allows easy access to the luggage compartment, the sporty RS 6 Avant is outstandingly equipped to satisfy sporty transport needs.
