A6 Avant en garde

Audiís A6 Avant represents a sleek and cerebral antidote to high-riding SUVs, but Australia is set to miss out on all but the most extreme version. Audi Australia says the business case for selling the Ďregularí A6 Avant in Australia just isnít there, despite its elegant looks and 48-volt mild-hybrid drivetrains. Australiaís insatiable appetite for performance means the bigbooted RS6 is a shoo-in locally though. The hardcore wagon is yet to be revealed, but knowing the badgeís history, itís certain to be a ball-tearer.
