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.
In Europe, Audi says that the 2015 A6’s engines are up to 22 percent less polluting. However, it remains to be seen if Audi India updates the engine lineup on the car.
In India, the A6 is sold with 2.0-liter petrol and diesel engines. Audi also offers the performance-oriented S6 sedan with a 4.0-liter V8.
Competitors: Mercedes E Class, BMW 5 Series, Jaguar XF
