Audi A6: Rendering and intel of next generation

Audi A6

We found some nice rendering of the next-generation Audi A6, including some new intel.

Internally called C7, the next-generation A6 will be built on Audi’s modular-longitudinal platform. This means its front axle moves further to the front, and the nose-heavy look of the current C6 will disappear. The front end, in fact, will look a lot like the Sportback concept, which is essentially the upcoming A7, which is due to launch this summer and is closely related to the A6.

Unlike the fully aluminum A8, but exactly like the A7, the next A6 will keep a body mostly made of steel. Audi had considered an all-aluminum body for the A6 (C5) in the mid-‘90s but abandoned the idea because of the huge cost involved. LED light strips are a given for the front end, and so are fuel-efficient and somewhat downsized powertrains.
