Audi A6 Avant is a wagon we need

Audi has revealed the all-new A6 wagon but it won't be sold in the Indian market.

The German vehicle manufacturer's estate models are called Avant, and here it is keen to promote the sporting credentials of its premium load-lugger.

Based on the all-new A6, the 2019 Audi A6 Avant is geared more towards buyers that need more space with up to 59.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat down.

The luggage space provided by the wagon body of the auto is of 565 liters (20.0 cubic feet) in the basic configuration.

Access to the luggage compartment is granted through an electronically operated cover, with an optional sensor control being available for the tailgate.

The cabin is also impressively roomy, offering more space than the outgoing model.

The new Audi A6 saloon arrived in February as Audi overhauled their premium saloon to keep up with the Mercedes E Class, and now it's the turn of the A6 Estate - the 2018 Audi A6 Avant - to get a very similar makeover. Audi is a manufacturer that's always been particularly renowned for its wagons, so the unveiling of the new A6 Avant to join the sedan will likely make plenty of enthusiasts very happy. The interior space in the A6 Avant tops its competition with more front and rear elbow room as well as with knee room for rear seat passengers.

As with the sedan, all new engines in the Avant will have mild hybrid assistance via a belt alternator starter, which "recovers up to 12kW with the 48V system during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery". Emergency brake assist is fitted as standard, but other features of the packages include an adaptive cruise control system that can slow the vehicle to a stop in traffic, or adjust speed by reading signs or anticipating curves and junctions ahead using sat nav data, and a warning for the driver if hazards pass in front of or behind the auto. Prospective owners can register their interest now ahead of deliveries later this year.
