The facelifted 2015 Audi A6, S6 and RS6 are currently celebrating their respective world debuts at this week’s Paris Motor Show 2014. The updated Audi A6 family has seen all members from the A6 Allroad quattro, to the S6, S6 Avant and RS6 Avant adopting the updates. We headed to the Audi booth for a closer inspection.
One of the most notable changes adopted by the 2016 Audi A6 family are the new headlights. Available with LED or Matrix LED technology, the newly designed headlights combine sharp lines with the latest innovations in headlight design. Additionally, the single frame front grille has been modified on all A6 models with the air intakes, front and rear bumpers, side skirts, tailpipes and taillights also adopting some subtle visual tweaks.
Beyond the exterior changes, Audi has modified the interior of the A6 range with colours flint grey and salsa red now available. The front seats are also available with ventilation and massage functions with the company’s latest MMI navigation system featuring on all models. The top-of-the-line navigation system uses a power retractable eight-inch monitor and uses an advanced Tegra 30 graphics chip from Nvidia.
For the 2016 Audi A6 and A6 Avant models, three different TFSI engines and five TDI engines are available. The entry-level one delivers 150 hp through to 333 hp. The top-of-the-range petrol engine, the 3.0-litre TFSI six-cylinder has been thoroughly revised and delivers the aforementioned 333 hp. On the diesel front, it is led by a 3.0-litre turbo delivering 326 hp. This engine uses an eight-speed tiptronic transmission whereas the other engines come with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed S tronic.
