The interior

The interior of the new RS 6 is an oasis of wellness. High-grade materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, leather and Alcantara have been selected and employed with the uncompromising, immaculate quality for which Audi and quattro GmbH are renowned. They create an ambience of cultivated dynamism and form an elegant dress for the high-tech package that can be found underneath.

A standard feature of the new RS 6 is a very special steering wheel – the leather-covered RS multifunction sport steering wheel. Its rim, which can optionally be trimmed in full-grain leather, is particularly substantial and is flat-bottomed, like on a racing car. The spokes incorporate multifunction buttons for operating the telephone, navigation system and audio system. Shift paddles for the tiptronic transmission allow fast manual gear changes, while an RS 6 signet provides a visual highlight. Audi is also able to fit the leather-covered multifunction sport steering wheel of three-spoke design with all-round rim at no extra cost.

As on every Audi, the instruments on the new RS 6 are clearly and brightly drawn. They are supplemented by an indicator showing the charge pressure of the turbochargers. This can be called up on the driver information system, as can an oil temperature display and a lap timer. Its display and the monitor of the MMI operating and multimedia system show the RS 6 logo when the ignition is switched on. The deluxe automatic air conditioning plus allows the interior to be heated or cooled in two separate zones.

The inlays in the new Audi RS 6 are made of carbon fiber and are precisely framed by narrow aluminum strips, and carbon fiber composite is also used for the center tunnel trim. Alternatively there are the versions Matt brushed aluminum, Fine grain myrtle nutmeg and Piano finish black. The cockpit front panel, which houses the instruments and display, is always in an extremely elegant black piano finish.

The control buttons for the MMI terminal, and the sports pedals and footrest feature the aluminum look. On the sills are sill strips with aluminum inlays bearing the RS 6 logo. The headlining and the insides of the posts can optionally be dressed in high-tech Nardia fiber. The door openers are specially shaped.

Strong support: The sports seats

The prominent shape of the sports seats gives the body the best possible support. They are electrically adjusted and incorporate an integral head restraint and manually adjustable thigh support. The sports seats have Silk Nappa leather upholstery with embossed RS 6 logo. Alternatively they are also available with Valcona leather. Contrasting stitching is included in both cases. Moreover, there is also a leather/Alcantara combination available as seat upholstery. The two front seats and the two outer seats in the rear are heated as standard. As an alternative for uncompromising sportiness, Audi can also fit RS bucket seats.

The new Audi RS 6 offers plenty of space for five passengers and their luggage. There remains a comfortable amount of space for the head, arms and legs, even on the rear bench seat. The trunk has a volume of 546 liters (19.28 cu ft), and can be increased if needed by folding the rear seat backrests forward. Another option is a trunk lid that automatically opens after it has been unlocked.
