The Audi A6 has been around for a few years. The German automaker introduced the sedan for the 2019 model year, and it’s due for a refresh as the automaker prepares to launch the electric A6 E-Tron for 2024. The new A6 gets a facelift, with camouflage covering only the front and rear fascias where most of the changes will occur.
Up front, Audi designers will modify the face, giving the sedan a new headlight design that flanks a modified grille. It will also receive reshaped front air intakes. There are even fewer changes at the rear, with the A6 likely getting new taillight graphics and a restyled rear bumper. Don’t expect any significant styling changes.
Unlike a previously spied A6 test vehicle, this one doesn’t hide its S Line badging on the front fenders. This mid-level trim likely has design cues not found on other lesser variants, but we don’t expect these A6s to be that different. The model line received a very minor restyling.
We haven’t spotted the new A6 interior, but we don’t expect any major changes to the cabin. Audi could give the car the latest infotainment software and make other changes to the packaging, but the tough spots will remain.
The same probably goes for the A6’s powertrain lineup, which is expected to remain the same. The current generation of engines should be transferred to the restyled model, and they could receive some adjustments to make them more efficient. Audi is preparing a fully electric variant called A6 E-Tron which is based on the Premium Platform Electric architecture.
Audi hasn’t said when it will unveil the new A6. We’ve speculated that it could debut before the end of 2022 for the 2023 model year, but Audi is running out of time. The A6 and A6 Avant are expected to debut first, with the Allroad, S6 and RS6 reveals reserved for a later date. Audi will bring the styling updates to the entire A6 lineup.
