However, a set of alleged leaked images allows us to see its evolved styling for the first time, but since we cannot confirm their authenticity, we’ll take them with a grain of salt for the time being.
At a first glance, the new generation Audi A6 appears to come with a front end very similar to those of the latest A7, A8, and smaller A4. It has a generous grille with horizontal bars, flanked by the new headlights with incorporated LED DRLs.
The rear end follows a similar pattern as well, with different taillights joined together in the middle by a chrome strip, and dual trapezoidal exhaust tips incorporated into a discreet diffuser.
Audi’s ‘Russian doll’ design philosophy continues inside, where the two displays dominate the dashboard, as seen in a set of spy shots, last week. The rest of the interior looks very similar to the new A7, which is basically a sleeker-looking version of the A6.
Different sensors, scanners, and cameras are expected to equip the 2019 Audi A6, to give it Level 3 autonomous driving, just like in the A7, whereas power should come from different four- and six-cylinder engines.
Customers will have to choose between the new 48-volt petrol and diesel units at first, with plug-in hybrid powertrains to join the lineup in the future, along with the potent S6 and RS6 versions. The latter will likely be limited to the Avant.
In terms of body styles, the new generation Audi A6 will continue to be offered as a sedan and estate (Avant), while the more off-road ready Allroad will have to face the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain and Volvo V90 Cross Country.
