If you’re in the market for a luxury wagon and live in the U.S., you can cross the new 2012 Audi A6 Avant off your list. The German premium brand says it won’t be bringing the 2012 A6 Avant (wagon) to U.S. shores.
“We don’t have plans to bring the [new] A6 Avant to the U.S,” said Audi of America spokesman Andrew Lipman.
Audi of America currently sells the 2011 A6 Avant in the U.S. for a starting price tag of $46,075.
Audi is following the lead of several other premium European brands, including BMW and Volvo, in pulling wagons out of the American market. Both BMW and Volvo have cited insufficient interest from U.S. buyers for the decision to withdraw their wagons.
A notable exception is Mercedes-Benz, which announced last week that it will begin selling its 2012 E63 AMG wagon this fall in the U.S.
