Audi A6 sheds more camo, reveals production lights

With the A8 and A7 already revealed, it’s no surprise then that Audi is already hard at work developing the upcoming A6. Seen by our spies is the next-gen A6 test mule undergoing winter testing and appears to have dropped more camouflage all around. Furthermore, the production headlights and taillights appear to have already been fitted onto this prototype.

Beginning with the front fascia, noticeably there is a larger and wider front grill similar to both the A8 and A7’s design language. There is also a more aggressively designed front bumper to match the sleeker headlights and wide grill. Surprisingly, there are roof mounted fog lights which aid the sleeker production LED headlights.

Moving along the vehicle’s body, the side profile remains relatively unchanged apart from the side mirrors being moved down to the door blades. At the rear, the shape of taillights and bumper design somewhat resembles that of the A7 Sportback. It is also possible that an LED strip will connect the taillights, but has yet to be confirmed.

Underneath, the next-gen A6 is said to be underpinned by Audi’s new MLB Evo platform. For now, no details have yet to be released regarding the A6’s engine options. Do expect however that engine options available in the two larger Audi sedans will also be shared to the next-generation A6. 

It is likely Audi will debut the A6 sedan first before the Avant (wagon) variant will make its debut. The A6 Allroad together with the S6 and RS6 will likely be unveiled at a later date once the all-new A6 has debuted.
