Audi A6

C7 Series II

1 Mar 2015

AUDI released the facelifted version of its seventh-generation A6 at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, with imports arriving in Australia late in the first quarter of 2015.

A model rationalisation saw all wagon versions shelved save for the Allroad and RS6 Avant flagship, while the 2.0 TFSI gave way to the 1.8 TFSI with the seven-speed S-tronic instead of the old Multitronic CVT.

The refreshed appearance includes a wider and flatter Audi-signature single-frame grille for a more three-dimensional look, assisted by sleeker headlights with the option of Matrix LED technology, as well as a restyled front bumper with different air inlets, more prominently flared front mudguards and reprofiled side sills. The rear sees more rectangular tail-lights with new linear illumination detailing. A8 limousine-style ‘Dynamic’ turning indicators are available front and rear for the first time in this series.

Inside, a variety of trim and material changes have been carried out, with a redesigned instrumentation pod featuring Audi’s Driver Information System sited between the speedo and tacho dials, displaying navigation data as well as a host of other functionality and driveability information.

There is now upgraded or new driver-assist tech like adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go function, Audi Side Assist with rear-mounted radar, improved night vision assistance and Audi Pre Sense safety that mitigates impact forces by preparing the vehicle’s safety systems.
