2021 Audi RS6 Avant vs 1994 Audi RS2 Avant: 25 Years of Fast Wagons

Makina dhe automjete

Today, we're checking out two impressive Audi models -- the 2021 Audi RS6 Avant and the 1994 Audi RS2 Avant, which are fast Audi wagons from 25 years apart. I'm going to go over the differences between these two cars, and then I'll drive the RS2 and RS6 Avant to let you know what I think of the driving experience.

    Me, seeing the handle that drops the rear seats is the same part from my 4Motion Golf Sportwagen: So yeah it's uh, 1/5 the price and just about 1/3 the horsepower but it's also AWD and...what? No, I'm pretty sure you only ever want to be able to send 30% of the torque to the rear, so this is definitely the better AWD system. Yeah and check this out, see this handle that drops the rear seats? Same part they used on the RS6, so...yeah it's pretty much the same car. Hey wait, where ya goin'? Come back!

    I remember the stick on window shades people had for their babies. When they started building them into the door, I was blown away. As a kid, THAT was luxury. I love the comparison of these two cars, though. Both awesome in their own ways.

    Rs2 in its simplicity looks way better than rs6. Rs6 is trying way too much to show that it's a !FAST!! wagon, it's almost as bad as civic type r.

    My first car in the US was a 91 Audi 90 coupe. I suspect that and the four door saloon would be fantastic donor cars for Doug's RS2 not only for stuff like seatbelts and switchgear - but also more than a few engine components. I was always a fan of the look, but the five cylinder engine honestly made me superstitiously OCD because it's an odd number - until I put some miles on it and my brain started to rotate the cylinders in my imagination, so that one was top center, making it feel symmetrical and purposeful again. People in the States at the time (I am personally Eurotrash) had so fully bought into the 60 Minutes episode BS that the Audi brand was damn near toxic - and everyone had an opinion about it based on a largely false narrative (just like the McDonalds coffee burn lady) and would lecture me on both unintended acceleration (aka, old people panicking because of a slight difference in layout) and European reliability (ie, technology and complexity) so the irony was that a few days before a PG&E truck nearly vaporized my 90 at a stop light (and me along with it) in San Francisco, that the throttle cable snapped on a freeway exit by Glen Park BART, and somehow stuck my car in first gear, at about 2000 rpm. Actual real life, bona fide unintended acceleration. I was somehow able to (with brakes alone) drive it (loudly) to the auto mechanic on Army/Cesar Chavez (famous at the time for being the only honest repair shop in San Fran - who fixed it for $20 for the replacement cable. I loved that car, and PGE blew it up. Which as it turns out is a thing they do on the regular.

    Myself being an old soul (I like classic/older everything) I do like the simplicity of the RS2 along with the whole of the car in general. I still do like the new one and probably going to buy one at some point in my life but I do wish I could get my hands on an RS2 a little more then I want the new one.

    To be honest I hate how most modern cars look identical, just look at the new Camry, look at the wheels, the sharp lines, the front grille. Also the bigger size is also not helping - most of them feel hollow and cheap. If a car is fast and mid-size it feels dense, very heavy and powerful.

    Hard to beat the old Straight 5 engines,still going strong to this day. Sadly it's super hard to come over a car with those engines today,where the engine or the car hasn't been modified. Since so many bought them to build track cars or tuners. Your RS2 is in BEAUTIFUL condition it seems like. And the RS2 Avant is my all time favorite stationwagon,since it's the pedigree of sports wagons. It would be amazing to see Audi make a new RS2 (maybe as a anniversary thing),maybe based on a A4 (RS4) or even make something between the RS3 & the RS4 to bridge the gap. It's Audi so I wouldn't expect it to be cheap,but if they could put it in between the RS3 & RS4 price wise. And make it as a pure sporty drivers car,and not the fastest or wildest wagon they would have something special. I honestly think there would be a market for it. If someone could do it,it would be the Audi engineers..

    This review reminds me of the differences I see between my (b4)95 passat vr6 manual wagon and my (b6) 07 passat vr6 tiptronic wagon. Engagement vs technology. Functional need vs luxury. Old fast vs newer almost double the horse power fast. And engines used in audi and porsche vehicles. I enjoy driving the 95 so much more, but I'd be lying if the guy in the dodge ram hemi pulling up to me in the 07 saying "does that thing have the 3.6?! Sh#t! That thing hauls ass!", didn't make me feel cool.

    Next time you should test a Aston Martin Cygnet vs a DB10 I like that there aren't any map pockets in the back. At 160mph you wouldn't want to be reading a map in the rear. This isn't as much of a comparison as Doug trying to justify buying the RS2 vs the RS6 Porsche Engineering: "How can we make it go faster." Volkswagen Engineering: "How can we make it break down faster?" Doug caught by the Father of a 16yo girl. "Don't worry, she's relatively legal."

    Conclusion: Audi's are getting more pointless. Power which you can't use. Interior which doesn't work in sun.. or at night.. or is robust. Price is getting near to supercars, so what is the point? And the 5 cyl sounds better than the new V8. Crazy? Well.. how many cars have V8 now and how many are 5 cyl? Also I want to see this RS6 in 27 years from now. RS6 with V10 were struggling to make it thru the warranty period.

    It's funny because those are his license plates from his collection. I believe he used them because he took down the 69 Alabama plate from the wall and had to move every plate one spot. Also, I think he doesn't want people to know what his plate on the RS2 is.

    Don't agree with his view, RS2 is a pretty car, solid lines, interior is minimalistic, functional. Later Audi cars just scream for attention with round shapes, "race" like-looks and all screens. It states mostly that car design just got worse, trying to make everything look "agressive". Maybe because cars got so much hate lately that they are overcompensating? Audi is btw one of the companies that still holds back on this new design styles and still makes relatively pretty cars. Also funny to see that the square tail light" blocks" are coming back like on the polestar.
