Audi RS6 Avant
In the 1960s and ‘70s, the crossover had not yet been invented yet, so the family car was always a station wagon. Today station wagons have fallen out of favor, but there are a few left on the road, including the hot, new RS6 Avant. A particular niche of auto enthusiasts in the U.S. have been pining for the Audi RS6 Avant — a high-performance all-wheel-drive luxury wagon that was never before sold in America. The RS6 Avant sports a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine generating a plentiful 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. With a quick-shifting 8-speed Tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive, this not-so-small wagon can sprint to 60 mph in a supercar-like 3.5 seconds.
