Audi adds yet another Avant in its lineup - this time round in the guise of a 3.0-litre bi-turbo diesel capable of a sub five-second century sprint.

Many of us may still be clouded with misconceptions of diesel power, often associating it with filthy emissions, and inferior to its petrol-driven compatriots in terms of refinement and power.

Of course, advancements in technology has made combusting diesel cleaner and more efficient. And we have seen a fair share of diesel alternatives being offered on passenger cars.

More recently, they have scaled up the ladder and made it to performance cars too. A good example will be the X5 M50d and the X6 M50d, which are propelled by diesel engines with not one, not two, but a trio of spooling turbos.  

Not keen to lose the game to their arch rival, Audi has responded with its 3.0-litre bi-turbo TDI diesel with two of its tested and proven recipes - the motorsports-derived quattro all-wheel drive and the Avant body type. The engine is also exclusive to the A6 Avant on local shores.

Up close & Personal

Subtlety has been one of Audi's best traits, particularly in their RS cars, and it continues on this top-of-range A6 TDI model. Worthy of its status within the family, the car gets a healthy dose of sporty bits from the S-Line package, complete with larger-than-life 20-inch rims. Those aside, there is no visible clue to tell of its ultra potent drivetrain that lies beneath.

On the inside, the Avant packs proper seating space for five. As a proper wagon, it also packs more wholesome load lugging capabilities - 565 litres in standard form, which is 35 litres more than the sedan. The boot space can also be further expandable to 1,680 litres with the rear seats folded. 

The A6 Avant remains as a practical wagon for the family man with space for five adults and more than adequate load-lugging capability
