The Audi A6 2015, may not look that different from its predecessor, but definitely stands a tough competition amongst Jaguar XF, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class
Audi, the German brand which has been busy with the launch of the all new Audi R8 and TT at the Geneva Motor Show this year, has eventually turned focus towards upgrade of the A6, which is now being spotted testing in western parts of India. A6 being the executive car made by the German automaker, carries a high value for efficiency and aerodynamics. The history of the A6 began with Audi 100 as a successor, changing to evolution from every aspect of the car that we see it today on our roads.
As you can see in the image, at the front the Audi A6 2015 will feature full LED headlights as a replacement for the projector unit as seen in the current version and signature Single-frame grille with beautiful and elegantly crafted character lines that define its executive profile. The LED strip on the head lamp which looks like a “Y” with an extended loop, inverted sideways can be seen on the tail lamp as well, which looks dynamic. At the rear, the new A6 boasts unique chrome strip on the edge of the boot lid and redesigned exhaust pipes with a neat rear diffuser.
We believe the face lifted Audi A6 2015 would get both petrol and diesel engines, matched to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. With the testing happening aggressively, we can expect the launch any time soon or by later this year and will take on likes of the Jaguar XF, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
