Powertrain unlikely to be altered.
Audi India is expected to have one product launch each month for the next 5 months. One of the 5 products lined up for the immediate future is the 2015 Audi A6 (facelift). Unveiled in Europe in the second half of last year, Audi's 5 Series rival gets minor cosmetic and feature changes.
Designers have given the premium luxury sedan mildly redesigned headlights, a bolder grille, new front and rear bumpers, a chrome strip on the bootlid and re-profiled taillights with LED bands. Audi also offers its high-end Matrix LED lighting system on the A6 for the European market, though it remains to be seen if this is offered in India.
Inside, the A6 facelift for Europe is offered with optional massage function and ventilation for the front seats. All variants get new seat fabrics and a new trim for the dashboard and door inserts. Audi has also upgraded the MMI system with a Tegra 30 graphics chip from its partner Nvidia.
For the Indian market, the A6 facelift is expected to continue using the 2.0-liter four-cylinder TFSI and TDI units, which are paired to CVT gearboxes spinning the front wheels.
