The refreshed A6 now gets Audi’s Matrix LED lighting system, first seen on the flagship A8. That apart, the sedan sports redesigned headlights, air inlets, bumpers, grille and taillights. The spy video above shows the new LED bands on the taillights, one of the notable additions.

Inside, the A6 facelift has been given new trims and seat fabrics. As part of the optional extras, the front seats can be specced with a massage function and ventilation. The MMI system gets an update in that it uses a more powerful Nvidia Tegra 30 graphics chip.
