Yes, station wagons have not always been mainstream models in China, especially in the recent wave of SUVs.

The C8 generation A6 was officially unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This Audi’s main medium-sized touring car is again stunning with its high-tech cockpit with clean and elegant lines. As for many taste-loving owners, the Avant model was reported later, but Because the original factory was converted by the WLTP global light vehicle test specifications. And Taiwan Audi is focusing on customer satisfaction improvement and after-sales service rectification (of course, inventory clearance), all new vehicle introduction schedules have been significantly delayed. Of course, including the new generation of A6.

Both A6 Avant models are equipped with 17-inch aluminum rims and 225 / 60R17 specifications, but this combination seems a bit domineering in terms of car size and size. The test drive was upgraded to a silver-gray dual-color 18-inch blade shape.
