Motortrend gives a pretty positive test drive review in its latest edition. I am very interested in this car to go along with my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have an STS which has been great but its time to have two cars useful for hauling around the young kids. I was leaning towards the e320 MB station wagon AWD but the Audi might be the better value with the superior quattro system

Any news on the new Audi A6 wagon for 1999 which is now appearing in showrooms?

Is there anything to indicate that the A6 Avant is anything more than a *very* deluxe VW Passat Wagon with a 2-inch "plug" inserted behind the front seats? (And an inch down the middle.) All this for a mere 50% extra cost (dealers' invoice) Do they come down different assembly lines? Are the suspension parts the same? I know that VW ships the 1.8 4-cyl FWD as well as (eventually) the V-6 Synchro, whilst Audi owners deserve nothing less than the V-6 Quattro, which accounts for some of the difference. But there still is a pretty big gap for a pretty similar vehicle.

I agree, I wanted an A6 Avant until I heard about the VW Passat Syncro Wagon which is expected to be in showrooms by this November. I just saw a A6 at the local dealer $43.8K sticker, looks great, but too much $$$.

If you can do with a little less space; I can't recomend
the A4 Avant enough. Even after 6+ mo. in my 98 quattro
I am still smitten with it. The 6cyl/quattro combo
prvides very anti-wagon performance. When people ask
how it drives I say,' Like a sprorts coupe, lust have a really big trunk"
Even though I have had it only six months I am coming up
on 14k trouble free miles. i love the handling and the get upadn go
the 190hp provides, the only disadvantage over the a6 Avant is it is
smaller. However even hauling three dogs and various drumsets I have
never run out of space. Unless you have more than 2 kids the space would be
more than adiquit. Check it out

It is a shame that they are discontinuing the V6 Quattro package for '99. I have a feeling that it was canabalizing some of the A6 Avant's sales.

discontinuing the v-6 quattro pkg in '99 for which car ?
Sep 15, 1998 (1:01 pm)
My understanding is that the V6 will be discontinued in the FWD A4 Avant only, but that the quattro version will still have it. The A4 Avant FWD will have the 1.8-litre turbo four-holer.
The 30V V6 will be offered in the A6 Avant, with the possible addition of the 3.2 V8 sometime in the future. At least, that's what I've heard.
