Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

Audi RS6 Avant safety levels are very high. On top of a maximum five star Euro NCAP crash testing score, there’s a whole host of passive and active safety systems installed.

You get airbags pretty much everywhere, while adaptive cruise control should ensure you don’t hit the car in front of you while cruising on the motorway.

Pre-safe is a system which prepares the car for an impact if it senses an impending crash, while Active Lane Assist will keep you in your lane when on the motorway, alerting you and steering back if drifting is detected without signalling.

Audi’s Side Assist is a system which detects vehicles in the car’s blind spot and warns the driver. Should the driver still attempt to move over then further warnings are given in a far more noticeable fashion which can hardly be ignored.

Being a large estate car, it’ll come as no surprise that Audi RS6 Avant practicality is excellent. The large 565-litre boot expands to a huge 1,680 litres when the rear seats are folded down, offering capacious luggage space when required.

Inside the RS6 you’ll easily fit four adults and their luggage. Five will fit with a squeeze. There’s a load of head- and leg-room available, while it shares the rest of its interior touches with the normal Audi A6.
