Audi A6

Audi today unveiled the new A6, the fourth generation of the its D-segment sedan. Measuring 4920mm long, 1870mm wide, and 1460mm tall, the new A6 is shorter and lower – but wider – than its predecessor, and has a longer, 2910mm wheelbase. The new car also features lighter body panels and improved powertrains.

The new A6's design undeniably lends itself to the Audi family. The familiar shape of the old A6 is still present, but the car has been thoroughly reworked. The obligatory Audi LED lighting has also been revised inside the more angular and aggressive headlights, that frame a more upright and prominent grille. The middle flank of the car is virtually untouched between generations, retaining the prominent shoulder and feature lines. Around the rear, the car gains a more squared-off trunk and rear deck, in keeping with Audi's current design language.

The interior of the A6 is a formal affair, with Audi's superlative perceived quality and attention to detail present in abundance. According to Audi, 'the salient element is the "wrap-around" dash inlay', that encircles the driver and the front seat passenger. The curved dash panels form just part of an interior with immaculate attention to detail, with a clear, succinct dial binnacle and detailed switchgear providing a quality feel.
