The Audi A6 and A7 have been hugely successful models and recently received a facelift in order to spice up the sales.
Now, Audi is preparing yet another facelift for these two large luxury sedans in the hope of retaining interest amidst the arrival of the latest generation Mercedes E class. The makeover has happened both externally and internally in the A6 and A7. The changes made to the A6 and A6 Avant may be subtle, but they have provided a strong visual appeal to the vehicle. The car is now bolder and even better to look.
Despite making some significant changes, Audi has retained the starting price for both the A6 and A7. Two new color options – gotland green and matador red – have been added to the line-up. The S line variant of the A6 gets a new matte black finish in the radiator grille to increase the sportiness of the vehicle. The accentuation on the S Line variants receive high-gloss chrome and this can be found in aspects like the chrome rings for the adaptive cruise control.
The A6 allroad version receives new 20 inch wheels and a Soho brown finish.
There are many such changes on the interior too. The A6, along with the A7 Sportback, receives LED treatment to highlight various aspects of the interior like the cabin and luggage compartment. Connectivity is enhanced by support to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Wireless charging is provided to eliminate unnecessary cables. Smart phones that support the inductive charging can now be recharged on the go wirelessly.
Just like in the case of the new BMW 7 series, customers at the rear of the A6 or A7 will be able to enjoy Audi tablets that have a range of functionalities. They can be used both inside and outside of the car.
Deliveries of the facelifted models will begin in the summer, but Audi is reportedly close to accepting orders for the vehicle.The interest in the models is expected to be quite high considering that several new features have been added at no extra cost to the buyer. The A6 competes against other German sedans like the BMW 5 series, the recently launched Jaguar XF, and Mercedes E class. The A7 goes up against vehicles like the Porsche Panamera, Mercedes CLS class, and Cadillac CT6.
