The 2019 Audi A6 sedan is the latest of the all-new four-door models that Audi needs to develop, as the A4, A7 and A8 are all there. We caught a prototype in the last stages of development as it was testing near the Arctic Circle.
Audi hopes that the next A6 will be significantly different from any other model in its range thanks to a style inspired by the magnificent Prologue Concept. From the prototype images, we can see that it will feature a large hexagonal grille and a pair of angular headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. No picture has surfaced from the back of the new model, but it’s a sure bet, it’ll look similar to the prologue concept, shown above. This first test car seems to have a silhouette similar to that of the outgoing model, but rumors suggest that it will include a larger cabin and a larger boot.
The interior of the new A6 should include design elements from the Prologue concept. A broad dashboard with only the minimum of buttons should be joined by the next generation of Audi’s Virtual Cockpit system a large digital screen that replaces the traditional instruments. The new A6 2019 platform would have a longer wheelbase and smaller overhangs than the outgoing car. to maximize cabin space without parking. As a result, we expect the new car to have more room for rear passengers and a bigger boot than the old model. Buyers looking for even more convenience will have to wait for the new A6 Avant. This elegant estate should hit dealers shortly after the show and boast of a body inspired by the Prologue Avant Concept, shown above.
The base engine should be a 2.0-liter inline turbocharger delivering 252 horsepower. Above, there will probably be a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, and as mentioned earlier, we should also see a plug-in hybrid option. The latter will present the Audi “e-tron” badge. Note, the current A6 has a plug-in hybrid option, but only in China. It combines an inline-4 with an electric motor built into the transmission and delivers a peak of 245 hp.
Audi dealers should start selling the new 2019 Audi A6 for about the same range as the outgoing model. Entry-level cars could cost around £ 34,000 while Avant Premium models could cost you around £ 60,000.
