Permanent all-wheel drive with self-locking centre differential and asymmetric/dynamic torque distribution, as well as wheel-selective torque control and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL); distributes the drive forces depending on the driving situation to each individual wheel for precisely controlled, sporty handling; quattro emblem in the dashboard on the passenger side.
Audi drive select features different modes – comfort, auto, dynamic and individual – which allow you to change the vehicle's characteristics by adapting the power steering assistance, accelerator or gear-change characteristics, RS adaptive air suspension, exhaust flap control and the settings of optional equipment.

The innovative technology combines a camera system with LED light sources and precision optics for highly adaptive light distribution. The system blanks out light that would otherwise shine directly on oncoming vehicles or vehicles in front but continues to fully illuminate all the other areas in between and alongside. The front lighting thus adapts dynamically, providing the driver with a much wider visual range. The conventional division between dipped and high beam is dispensed with. Familiar convenience functions such as the static turning light, all-weather light, junction light, motorway light and travel mode, which uses GPS data to switch between right and left-hand drive modes are integrated into the LED technology. The LEDs of the Audi Matrix LED headlights also perform the dynamic cornering light functions. Using vehicle support based on navigation data, it starts responding shortly before the steering wheel is turned. Distinctive features include the crisp lighting pattern with matte black frame and horizontal web in glacier white, the LED daytime running lights and the dynamic indicator in the headlights and rear lights.
Convenience key access and drive authorisation system, the key only needs to be carried with you; the vehicle is locked and unlocked from outside via sensors on all door handles. The luggage compartment lid can also be opened separately when the vehicle is locked.
Image of area behind the vehicle shown on the MMI display, with dynamic display elements showing the calculated path depending on steering angle; auxiliary lines and guidelines and identification of the point at which to apply opposite lock when parallel parking; reversing camera integrated discreetly in the handle strip of the luggage compartment lid; activated when reverse gear is selected or via the button in the centre console.
Driver information system with colour display high-resolution 7-inch TFT colour display directly in the driver's field of vision; displays information from the MMI system, infotainment systems and driver assistance systems; display of trip computer with short and long-term memory, digital speedometer, gear display, outside temperature, plus door and luggage compartment lid check; RS menu with shift light, charge the MMI system, infotainment systems and driver timer; can be operated via an RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel; including attention assist: attention assist warns the driver in the form of an acoustic signal and a visual warning, if it has evaluated that the driver's attention is lapsing.
Automatically regulates the vehicle height and damping by means of the electronically controlled air suspension with infinitely variable adaptive damping system on all 4 wheels; with RS 6-specific tuning; includes ride height control and manual lift function; various modes can be selected via Audi drive select.
Adjustable in 3 stages; single-tube gas-filled shock absorbers with variable suspension characteristics and coil springs; control range of Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) can be selected in 3 stages via Audi drive select: comfort, auto, dynamic.
RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel in 3-spoke design, flattened at the bottom adjustable in height and reach; with shift paddles in aluminium-look, RS 6 emblem and full-size airbag; flat-bottomed steering wheel rim upholstered in perforated leather and contrasting stitching in rock grey; for operating the infotainment features fitted in the vehicle.
When cornering, changing lanes or parking, for example, this system improves handling and ride comfort by dynamically regulating steering according to the driving situation; in addition to adaptation of the steering effort, the steering angle is also adapted (steering ratio); also supports vehicle stabilisation through ESC.
The electronically controlled sport differential distributes variable amounts of drive force to each rear wheel and ensures outstanding acceleration performance in corners and stabilises the vehicle’s response to load change. It also improves direct steering characteristics and provides more agile handling due to the lower steering effort required.
