The A6 range now gets Audi’s Matrix LED lighting system as optional fitment.
Audi has announced the refreshed A6 and S6 variants today with mild exterior revisions. The exterior sees changes to the grille, headlights, air inlets, bumpers, side sills, taillights and tailpipes. Audi optionally offers its LED Matrix headlights with dynamic turn signals.
Inside, the car gets a revised trim and seat fabric. Also, the front seats can be optionally had with massage function and ventilation. Further the MMI system has been upgraded and it uses the Tegra 30 graphics chip from Audi’s partner Nvidia.

German deliveries of the refreshed A6/S6 will start in fall 2014.
