Ever since we tested the wicked midsize luxury wagon from Ingolstadt last year and learned that it would be sold in Canada, there was just one thing left to know: the price.
We now have the answer on Audi’s Canadian website.
The 2021 RS 6 Avant (not 2020 as initially reported) is available from $120,400. We’re pretty sure customers will want to add a few options, but be careful as those can be quite expensive, too.
Some examples include the Carbon Optics Package at $6,350 (which includes gorgeous 22-inch wheels), the Dynamic Package at $2,950 (with a quattro sport rear differential and dynamic all-wheel steering), the Driver Assistant Package at $2,400 and the Individual Contour Seats at $3,600.
The priciest option by far, though, are the RS ceramic brakes with brake calipers painted in grey, red or blue. At $10,500, it’s a massive investment, for sure, but probably one you need to make if you plan to hit the track.
After all, the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant, which the company describes as a modern Prometheus (it was born in the same city as Frankenstein’s creature), is a real monster with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine as a heart. It generates 591 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, sprinting from 0-100 in just under four seconds.
The competition is an all-German affair with the likes of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon (603 horsepower; price TBD) and the 2020 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo (542 horsepower; $179,000). Alternatively, you could throw your money at the 2021 Audi RS 7 Sportback—same engine, but with a liftback sedan profile for $126,400.
