2019 Audi A6: These Are (Likely) The First Official Images

The 2019 Audi A6 is probably a week away from being officially unveiled, as its premiere is expected to take place at the Geneva Motor Show.

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.

    I don’t care what it is, I WANT IT BAD!!!
    Poor BMW 5 series…..

    • Bo Hanan

      The 5-Series has nothing to worry about here.

      • Christian

        Until you open the door and look inside the A6…

        • Shtekeris

          I would probably consider 5 series, since Audi interior looks nice, but is heavily touch based and fingerprints will be all over everything, ewww. Looks nice when brand new though.

          • nastinupe

            Funny, people said the same thing about the iPhone back in 2007.

          • Shtekeris

            Yes, and 10 years later there is still no protection and it still gets smudged quickly and looks bad until cleaned. But at least it’s a small device in your pocket, not 2 huge iPads in the middle of car. thet will just be there and be smudged, smudged real bad.

      • Knotmyrealname

        Just my opinion. I loved the F10; the G series, not at all. I think this looks a better evolution from it’s last generation than the 5 series does.

    • Kagan

      How can you wan’t it if it ain’t real?

      • Knotmyrealname

        I think it’s real. It certainly looks legit to me.

  • MultiKdizzle

    Looks like like a facelift.

    • Evan McMaster

      Not really no. If you actually know Audis well you will see the lines are very different on the vehicle, and the front and rear are entirely new. If you owned a C7 A6 you would see this is far more than a facelift.

      • MultiKdizzle

        “Entirely new”

        Of course there are some new shoulder lines on the profile, but this is exceptionally similar to the previous generation. You’d have to willfully deny that.

  • Miknik

    Boring enough to seem credible

    • Bob

      hahaha. nice. Poor Audi.

  • AxlRock

    Disappointingly, yes it is the new A6.

  • Christian

    Butttt Kia just reviled a new OPtima with a, wait for it WAIIIIT WAIIIT! 1,6 Diesel!!!!!!!!!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d658619a8e2dfc57922db3fbcbeb9d9c991f8987c0edb63e2723172985f23d5c.jpg

      I hate diesel engines. They are slow and filled with emissions.

    • Zandit75

      Can you please learn how to spell Revealed.

      • alexxx

        Because?

        • Zandit75

          Because what he is spelling gives the sentence a completely different meaning. The fact that he continues to do it on multiple stories over the last few weeks is getting annoying.

          • alexxx

            But…I can see you got the meaning right…
            Right?!
            So maybe the problem is elsewhere…

          • Zandit75

            Pardon me for trying to uphold some grammar standards. People are getting too lazy these days, and not paying enough attention to what they are doing.

        • MultiKdizzle

      • Christian

        What if i don’t identified it like that?

        • Zandit75

          Just go back to English lessons please.

  • AxlRock

    Bored of this already. Let’ see what they bring in the next decade. Oh wait. Considering its an Audi I’m bored of that as well.

  • Sufyan Shahid

    Looks good to me!

  • SamuraiJack

    I thought they said in future the different models will look more, well, different

  • Bash

    They all look the same now.

    • Nordschleife

      No this rear end only has a chrome bar connecting the lights and not lights themselves. C’mon now. Lol.

      • Bash

        🤦🏻‍♂️

  • ZYGIUS

    Like i told 10 year ago, Audi have roof line resources in his storage for another 40 years, and it fits for every sedan model in their lineup

  • Hoe

    For me, the front and the rear look like the poor brother of A8 & A7, like they tried to downgrade it. The headlamps look really bad, oversized, complicated, difficult.
    The side not that bad, but simple, boring…

    • Zandit75

      I think it’s the opposite. The A7 looks horrible compared to this. The headlights on the A7 are the worst design I have seen from Audi in a long time.

  • dumblikeyou2

    The back kinda looks like an inflated version of the current Jetta.

  • DMJ

    This is why in my country Audi is loosing share year after year, with sales far behind BMW and Mercedes.

    • Finkployd

      what country is that ? planet earth ?

  • erly5

    As expected, another disappointing new Audi. It’s not that it’s bad looking, it’s just that it already looks so familiar.

  • krusshall

    Does it really matter? Audi – king of the evolutionary design progression. Same as it ever was.

  • ErnieB

    The interior will be futuristic in a beautiful way.. the exterior fit for a wealthy retiree ..

  • Jason Panamera

    I like the back of this car. It looks A8’ish (previous gen). Overall i like how does it look but i’d take A7 instead of A6.

    • alexxx

      Yes…A7 is much much better

  • Karl

    That roof line is not doing anything for it

  • TheHake

    Damn. I wanted to buy a smaller car next time around and now Audi came and destroyed my plans. 🙁

    • alexxx

      Cause this A6 is something special…right?!

  • Tumbi Mtika

    That back is flatter than cardboard.

  • DMJ

    Why Rwanda?

  • DMax

    Looks good to me. I’d take it over any of it’s competitors. Exterior looks sharp. But what matters in these luxury cars the most is the interior. And if it’s anything like the A7 it’s a winner in my book. E class has that cheap looking huge Ipad that I can’t stand. BMW is very bland inside, looks the same for the past 10 years, also looks like a Korean car now thanks to that bmw designer that Koreans snatched. Lexus is just revolting.

    • lagunas3ca

      E-Class has new dual display.

  • Nordschleife

    Whether it’s confirmed or not it most definitely looks like what Audi would produce.

  • Merc1

    You’ve driven the new A6? Get outta here.

    M

  • Christian Wimmer

    Looks good. Understated as expected but also sharp, elegant and dynamic.

  • Marty

    Is this the new A6? Don’t know. I mean, who could ever tell if it’s the new one or the old one or the new A4 or the old A4 or the A8…

  • Navy Motorsport✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Wow, it looks nice and more evolutionary, but nice.

  • Enter Ranting

    Looks like a Jetta with giant fake grilles. Audi has lost their way, design wise.

  • Puddingpopper

    Another gross audi 🙁

  • Belthronding

    That looks sexy

  • Ermal Morina

    I mean it looks good,typical Audi,but that rear end is super fugly.Looks like a Škoda

  • nastinupe

    The rear looks better than the A7’s does.

  • MarketAndChurch

    So I guess, of the new design direction that Audi is taking, I prefer the A8 first, the A7 second, and this third.

  • Mynameis Taylor

    I think this is a really good looking Audi. I think it’s a nice evolution from that last generations. I’m also going to say that I think it looks better than the A8 and the A7

  • Autoexperte

    the front looks a little bit like a pig
