Audi Teases All-New A6, Says Unveiling Will Happen Soon

In this brief 26-second video, Audi isn’t just teasing us with the design of the new-generation A6 saloon, but also with its impending arrival.

Does that mean days, weeks? All we know is that the description of the video pretty much translates into: “Audi will soon be presenting the new Audi A6. How designers and engineers have revised the successful model, you will see in the coming days.” We’re also advised to follow the automaker’s Facebook channel, as well as their official blog.

Chances are the car is coming to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month, which is what we were suspecting all along, although that doesn’t necessarily mean that it can’t be unveiled beforehand.

The all-new Audi A6 will reportedly feature Level 3 autonomous technology like the flagship A8, as well as a digital instrument cluster and dual console displays like the recently launched second-generation A7 Sportback.

All sorts of advanced driver assistance features are to be expected, as is a wide range of four and six-cylinder engines, which should include the 3.0-liter TFSI V6 unit from the A7.

Once it’s out, we’ll just have to see how it compares to the Mercedes E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Jaguar XF and the rest of the mid-size premium saloon group.

    The interior’s going to look obvious. I’m more curious to look at the exterior.

    • Carenthusiast

      Yes, interior isn’t gonna be anything different from A8/A7. However, I feel exterior design cues will be taken more from A8 and not A7

      • Jason Panamera

        I think that interior is gonna be the same as in A7 like it was in previous generation. We’ve just already seen everything what’s gonna be in A6

    The S60 is a 3 series rival and will remain it. The A6 will rival the S90.

    It’s going to be smoking hot if the A7 is anything to go by. It’s really unfortunate that the new A8 looks so dumpy.

      Smoking hot? Based on the A7? Really? Okay, whatever floats your boat.

  • AxlRock

    Behold the new A6. Exactly the same as the old one.

    • Nordschleife

      No it will have animated lights. Lol.

  • erly5

    Don’t think there’ll be any surprises in the way the new A6 looks unfortunately, especially after the A8 which promised a lot and delivered absolutely nothing new design-wise.

      except the two lidars in the grille

  • salamOOn

    all i want from this car is NOT having those stupid glossy fingerprint magnets a.k.a double touchscreens as central console…
