Our spy photographers managed to peak inside a RHD Audi A6 Avant prototype, and as expected, it’s pretty much identical to what we already saw with all-new A7 Sportback. The two touchscreen displays definitely stand out the most, followed by the same steering wheel and seemingly same door panel design as in the A7.
In all likelihood, if not all, most of the A7’s options will make it over to the new A6 – like the head-up display, Bang & Olufsen audio system, voice control tech, ambient lighting package, Valcona leather upholstery and Audi AI driver assistance tech. Let’s put it this way, there weren’t many options you could tick on the first-gen A7 that you couldn’t on the current, 4th-gen A6 (C7).
Since we’re on the subject of specs, we expect the all-new A6 to boast Level 3 autonomous technology, which means that it should be able to maneuver into and out of parking spots and garages, just like the new A7 can. Helping it along the way could be as many as five radar sensors, five cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors and a laser scanner.
On the road, new A6 owners will get to choose between multiple four and six-cylinder engines, among them the 3.0-liter TFSI V6 unit that feeds 340 PS (250 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque to the new A7 Sportback’s wheels.
Whether you opt for petrol, diesel or electrified, the all-new A6 should pander to all audiences, especially with such a diverse lineup of body styles and versions – Sedan, Estate (Avant), Allroad / S6, RS6.
