What is it like on the inside?
The availability of a television with Teletext would have struck me as witchcraft back in 2002. Of course nowadays the whole infotainment system doesn’t really work, to the extent you’re better off suckering your phone to the dashboard and using it for navigation, media and so-on, but that’s ok. This is 17-year-old technology, remember.
Audi has always been especially good at interiors – making them feel solid, well-wearing and unlikely to fall to pieces. The RS6 is no exception – admittedly this particular car has done very few miles, but a well-looked-after car ought to age pretty well, regardless of how many miles it’s done.
This generation of RS6 launched as an Avant, with the four-door saloon following later, so of course it’s massively spacious and practical. Families of five are easily accommodated, as is all their luggage.
Back in the day prices kicked off below £60,000 before options, of which there were many. Nowadays you can spec an RS3 up to that level.
