Old vs New – 2015 Audi A6 (facelift) vs pre-facelift model
I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Audi announced the refreshed A6 with minor exterior and interior changes last week. Here is a pictorial comparison of the refreshed A6 with the current model.
The refreshed A6 is easily identified by its redesigned headlight clusters which optionally come with Audi’s Matrix LED lighting system and dynamic turn signals. Minor changes have been extended to the grille and bumpers of the car as well.
The rear sees rectangular taillights with LED strips for the stoplights. Rectangular exhausts and a chrome strip on the bootlid complete the exterior changes.
Inside, the gearlever of the sedan gets a new knob, and although the steering appears different in the image, Audi offers customizable steering designs for the A6 abroad. The only other element to change inside is the graphics chip for the MMI system, which now comes with a Nvidia Tegra 30 chip.
The A6 facelift is expected to get its public debut at the Paris Motor Show next month, following which an Indian launch should take place in the first half of next year.
