It is hard to talk about Audi wagons without mentioning the show-stopping RS2 Avant. First seeing light back in 1994, the RS2 was met with audiences that were still a tad sceptical about packing monstrous power into a benign-looking wagon.

18 years apart - the RS2 which first got us acquainted with the avant

The RS2 Avant was also the first car to dawn the 'RS' badge - such precedence has etched the significance of the avant body-style into the marque's heritage. And while the local motoring scene is still pre-packed with the more conventional sedans, there are signs of the wagons gaining acceptance. We find out if the deviated choice is a worthy bet.

Exterior

Despite gaining the rear-end bulk, Audi has somewhat managed to turn the avant into a flowing package - a distinguishing composition of style, poise, and purposefulness.

As the rarer sight on our local roads, the avant looks fresher, and certainly carries a greater presence than its booted brother - the A6 sedan. The dynamism of the design cues are best viewed from the front three-quarts, with the taut creases outlining the pronounced side-grilles, complete with an unobtrusive front spoiler.

Though much of the styling has been carried forward from the sedan variant, the rear end of the avant features subtle makeovers, such as a lowered boot-sill for ease of loading. It does take a keen eye to spot the differences, but by no means is the avant any less stylish.

Our test car also came with the five-spoke alloys in 20-inch applications, first seen on the RS6, sprucing up the sporty looks of the avant substantially.
