2011 Audi S6 Avant
The 2011 Audi S6 Avant features double grille with flush-fitted headlamps. Projector-beam fog lights lie below the well-integrated front bumper. The shoulder line rises to the rear, giving it a croched silhouette. Its well-proportioned lines radiate elegance and agility. A line at the front of the car dives down sort of like that of a Rolls Royce Corniche. Audi calls it an expressive design with coupe-like lines. It’s expressive in an understated Audi way and people will know you know business when you fill their mirrors.
Nearly 17 feet in length, The 2011 Audi S6 Avant is longer than the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 745Li and 760Li. The wheelbase of The 2011 Audi S6 Avant stretches to 121.1 inches. That’s 3 inches longer than the wheelbase of the previous-generation A8 L, essentially identical to that of the Mercedes S-Class, nearly as long as the BMW 745Li and 760Li, and substantially longer than that of the Cadillac DeVille. (The wheelbase is the distance between the front wheels and the rear wheels. A longer wheelbase tends to offer more passenger room and increased stability.) The Audi is slightly wider than the Mercedes and comparable to the BMW. The 2011 2011 Audi S6 Avant rear doors are long, allowing for convenient passenger entry and exit.
Front and rear doors open extra wide. The outside door handles are attractive, but are the lever style, which we find harder to use than the kind you can put your hand through, such as those on a Mercedes. Seven-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels with 255/55R17 tires come standard and provide excellent handling and ride comfort and superb grip in the wet. Optional 18- and 19- inch wheels and tires are available that visually fill the wheel wells and provide a surprisingly smooth ride in spite of their short sidewalls. The taillights fit flush with the clean rear design. Turn signals use LED technology and feature side repeater lamps to signal drivers alongside of your intentions. Dual exhaust pokes from below the beautifully integrated rear bumper.
The new space-frame design uses fewer parts, fewer joints for increased rigidity. That increased rigidity eliminates flex, giving The 2011 Audi S6 Avant the feeling of being carved from a single block of bar-stock aluminum. The body is also made of aluminum. The 2011 2011 Audi S6 Avant comes loaded with features and its interior is comfortable and luxurious.
The interior is a clean, classic design. A choice of leather and wood trim combinations ensures a touch of individuality. Handsome Valcona leather seat upholstery comes standard with attractive Alcantara (suede-like) door inserts. Aluminum trim gives the cabin a sporty flair.
The seats are supportive and comfortable and adjust 16 ways. A memory feature remembers all the settings for four different drivers (or moods), including climate controls. Front and rear seats are heated as is the leather-covered steering wheel. The center console provides generous storage. The electroluminescent instrument panel adjusts brightness automatically according to ambient light. The system is designed to minimize distraction while consolidating most of the interior functions giving the driver lots of options without filling the dash with buttons. The cabin is insulated well and carrying on a conversation is easy. There’s no wind noise in this car and the ventilation system was acoustically tuned to make the climate control as quiet as possible, even when the fan is at full blast.
