Next A6 will present an evolutionary style, but new technical and interior features. Envelopes are gradually coming out of the all-new 2018 Audi A6 Avant in anticipation of its unveiling next year, and these latest spy photos still serve our best look at the new generation of Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.
Thanks to the camouflaged layers on this prototype, we can see the new A6 will have a similar front face to the latest A8 and A7 recently revealed. The rounded grille of the old model has been replaced by a much sharper hexagonal part, while the headlights of the new car are wider and thinner than the outgoing model. At the back, we can see this prototype of its biggest A7 and A8 cousins. Instead, he gets a pair of larger, more angular units that recall those of the smaller A4. When the camouflage comes off, we can expect a pair of fake chrome exhausts to be found somewhere on the bumper of the new car. These spyshots show the sporty S6 Avant, the performance model of the A6.
No image has appeared from inside the new A6 but it should borrow some pieces of the luxurious A7 and A8. A digital display should replace conventional analog dials across the A6 range, while a pair of large touch screens on the dashboard will allow you to set everything from stereo volume to temperature heated seats with a finger stroke. The Avant Estate model shown in these photos is expected to have a wider boot than the 565-liter outgoing model, but the head and legs of the passengers should not drastically change on the already spacious outgoing model.
Of course, regular 2.0 diesel will make up the bulk of A6 sales, with a range of four-cylinder gasoline turbochargers and six-cylinder diesel engines. A frugal plug-in hybrid e-tron capable of about 32 miles on battery power alone will also be introduced. It is also availability of a manual gearbox, offering the A6 with seven and eight-speed dual-clutch only.
The finished A6 is expected to make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in October 2018 and go on sale in early 2019. Entry-level cars are expected to cost around £ 35,000 while top-of-the-line RS6s could cost you more than 90 £ 000.
