5 reasons to buy the 2022 Audi RS6

1. Thrilling performance 

When you need a break from the mundane, the Audi RS6 has you covered. The 2022 Audi RS6 has a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 engine that makes a whopping 591 hp—plenty of oomph to power up rides on twisty backroads or to amp up day-to-day driving. And if you really want to unleash the wagon’s sporting potential, look for a 2022 RS6 that replaces the standard air suspension with Audi’s dynamic ride control. This system is designed to monitor road conditions and cornering forces and adjust the suspension accordingly—ideal for a day at the track. 

2. Stylish wagon 

If you love a good-looking wagon, the 2022 Audi RS6 doesn’t disappoint. The low-slung profile, gaping grille, and aggressive fascia are guaranteed to turn heads in the parking lot. The interior is equally sleek, with Valcona leather seats featuring a honeycomb pattern and RS embossing, along with a perforated, heated sport leather steering wheel with large aluminum shift paddles on either side of the wheel. Want an extra dose of style? Look for a 2022 RS6 with the available RS Design package, which includes a faux suede-covered steering wheel and shift knob, red or gray contrast stitching, and floor mats embroidered with the RS logo. 

3. Smooth and quiet ride 

No matter how busy the roads, the 2022 Audi RS6 offers insulation from the hustle and bustle. It’s easy to carry on a conversation throughout the cabin, as road and wind noise are muted, and the suspension easily soaks up bumps on the pavement. With supportive leather seats and a standard four-zone automatic climate control system, your whole crew can relax and enjoy the ride.  

4. Ample room for passengers and cargo 

Want a vehicle that drives like a sports car but has the utility of an SUV? Don’t miss the 2022 Audi RS6. This spacious performance wagon can easily fit your five-person crew. And there’s no need to fight over the front seat—the back row has 37.4 inches of legroom and 39.5 inches of headroom, making it ideal for taller passengers. Whether you’re cruising around town or taking a big trip, you’ll have 30 cu-ft of cargo space to transport all your gear. Got more luggage than passengers? Fold down the rear bench to access a whopping 58.3 cu-ft of space.    

5. Tons of tech 

With the 2022 Audi RS6, it’s easy to stay connected on the road. Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay® connectivity are standard, along with a wireless charging pad with phone signal booster. Dual touchscreen displays (10.1-inch top and 8.6-inch lower) can each show navigation directions, so you won’t have to switch between screens to adjust radio or media settings. Standard driver aids such as lane departure warning and forward collision mitigation can help ensure peace of mind on the road.
