2020 Audi RS6 Avant review
  • Performance is immense for what is a practical wagon; interior quality, execution and insulation is top notch; ride quality on 22-inch rims is brilliant
  • Exhaust could be louder, especially in Dynamic mode; Some of the options are particularly expensive; The first two are just nitpicking
