2019 Audi A6 Styling
The existing A6 is the earliest Audi model on sale and is starting to look a little dated. This replacement should fix that with sharper bodywork and brand-new LED headlights which resemble the ones fitted to the new A7. The grille is larger and the bumper looks new too. Around the back, the A7’s impact extends to the rear lights, which have actually upgraded LED sections and might have a light bar that extends throughout the boot cover. The general shape is similar to the outbound car, but will be more aerodynamic to improve emissions and performance. Expect it to be somewhat bigger than the present A6, which need to enhance legroom and boot space.

It’ll obtain bits from the glamorous new A7 and A8, including Audi’s newest Virtual Cockpit infotainment screen that puts necessary information where traditional rev-counter and speedo dials would be.
The new 2019 Audi A6 interior will be more elegant than the current variation too, with more premium materials dotted throughout the cabin and extensive personalisation alternatives. It’ll also offer a lot of safety technology consisting of self-governing emergency braking, a danger picking up system and a drowsiness sensing unit that can inform if a motorist is unconscious.

S6 and RS6 performance petrol models will arrive a few years after the standard car– the latter will use the 4.0-litre V8 also discovered in the Porsche Panamera Turbo and RS7.
At the other end of the spectrum, a plug-in hybrid model is expected to be readily available from launch. Anticipate it to use a 2.0-litre fuel engine mated to an electrical motor, with a combined power output of around 300hp. A fully electrical model might also be in the pipeline.
