Prototypes for Audi’s facelifted A6 are now running the streets almost completely free of camouflage. Only a few small areas of black tape to the A6’s lighting and a fake chrome strip keep us from seeing the car in its completely finished form. The revised A6 gets a tweaked front fascia with low, flared intakes similar to the Audi’s A5 coupe. The small round fog lamps are bogus, as the actual lamps will go all rectangular. A close look at the tail-lights reveals an additional blacked-out portion continues onto the trunk, mimicking the lighting designs applied to Audi’s A4 and A5. The thin chrome strip that runs the width of this prototype’s tail-end appears to be a fake piece, as it overlaps the tail-lights in an illogical fashion.
The end result for the A6 facelift is a typical mid-cycle facelift, but the changes applied will bring the A6 a bit more in line, visually, with two of Audi’s sportier, more nimble offerings.
