Indisputable fact: for a long time, Audi reigned supreme in sports wagons, notably with the iconic Audi RS2 Avant from 1994. However, if the manufacturer of Ingolstadt participated in the official debut of this type of vehicle on the market , Porsche will be ahead of him in terms of the concept. Indeed, on September 19, 1984, the employees of the Zuffenhausen manufacturer offered Ferry Porsche the Porsche 928-4. This "hunting station wagon" had four real seats, but also typical Porsche performance. And with the arrival of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo wagon in 2017, the confrontation with Audi was inevitable. Porsche Quebec, your Porsche dealership also serving Trois-Rivières, compare the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant and 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo below, and tell you how the Porsche is a better choice than the Audi!
First round in this Audi RS 6 Avant VS Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo match: the exterior features. On this point, there are two opposing schools. This is how the super-sporty Audi wagon sports hook-cut headlights and a (very) large single-frame front grille. From the side, the wide fenders contrast sharply with the very beveled door sills, while the rear plays the card of ultra-aggressiveness with an imposing trunk spoiler, very geometric optics, and a prominent diffuser with two outlets. massive oval exhaust.
At Porsche, the lines are more tapered and compact. Streamlined headlights, horizontal lines extending from the vents behind the front fenders, and a more enveloping trunk spoiler: the Panamera offers a more fluid and reserved design than the Audi. It's very simple: even when stationary, the Porsche feels startlingly fast! So, if you want a refined looking station wagon that expresses its sportiness with elegance and subtlety, then the 2021 Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo, and not the 2021 RS 6 Avant, is what you need!
Two ultra-sporty engines, but superior performance for the Pamamera.
On the engine side, too, the 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo is leading the debate. However, the Audi remains extremely efficient!

Combined with an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission, it efficiently transfers power to the ground via a high-performance quattro all-wheel drive. Rigged in this way, the 2021 RS 6 Avant can go 0-100 km / h in just 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of up to 280 km / h.
If these performances are staggering, they are insufficient to overcome the 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo. Powered by a 4.0 V eight-cylinder powered by two turbos, the Porsche wagon can count on 620 hp for 604 lb-ft of torque. All this cavalry travels on the ground via all-wheel drive surpassing the Audi quattro. These characteristics naturally allow this Panamera to teleport to 100 km / h from a standstill in just 3.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. What about top speed? It is also higher (315 km / h). So, if you favor pure performance, you have only one choice between Lévis and Quebec City: the 2021 Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo!

Paradoxically, despite a more classic presentation, the Porsche offers a less loaded design, which will allow you to focus on what matters: your driving!
