Filed to detail level
Audi goes with the file along the A6 and A7 Sportback. The pair undergoes adjustments at a detailed level, but can still be distinguished in one fell swoop from the models before the facelift. The Audi A6 and A7 Sportback now almost all have a touch of RS in the front.
Audi is in full swing with the development of the A6 e-ton, the fully electric alternative to the A6 that will be in showrooms from next year. But the now somewhat older models with combustion engines are not forgotten by the higher lords and ladies in Ingolstadt. The Audi A6 dating from 2018 and the A7 Sportback, which appeared a year earlier, undergo a side point session at the same time. The facelift is not earth-shattering, but it comes at a well-timed moment. After all, Mercedes-Benz recently introduced a completely new E-class and BMW recently presented the completely new 5-series and i5.
The new Audi A6 and A7 Sportback now almost always have a grille that is filled with a honeycomb-like motif for which Audi has sought inspiration from the RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback. Almost always? Certainly. The Audi A6 Allroad is the only variant with a different grille. The fencing of that more adventurous A6 has vertical bars. An Audi A6 or A7 Sportback with horizontal slats in the grille is no longer available.
The Audi A6 and A7 Sportback will soon be available in various ‘flavors’. For example, the A6 is available with the standard appearance, but also with Advanced and S Line optics. The A7 Sportback has to do without the Advanced variant. In the standard versions, the front is finished in matte black, among other things, and you will find a chrome-colored frame around the Singleframe grille. The Advanced Line has a grille in Dark Chrome and includes vertical air intakes in the front and a rear bumper with a diffuser and a silver-colored part. You can recognize the S Line by a grille with chrome-colored inserts. The Audi A6 in S-Line trim gets a new diffuser with gray parts at the bottom of the rear, the A7 Sportback has a chrome finish. The S-Line interior package mainly brings black finish to the interior of the A6 and A7 Sportback, but also things like a more upholstered steering wheel with paddle shifters and stainless steel pedals. The Audi S6 and S6 Sportback also undergo detailed changes.
More exterior news: Audi introduces the new paint colors Arcona White and Madeira Brown Metallic. The S6, S7 Sportback and the A6 and A7 Sportback in S-Line trim are now also available in new colors of red and blue. For example, we see new materials in the interior and every A6 and A7 Sportback has the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit. The A6 and S6 with the ‘basic headlights’ now have full LED lighting with specific LED daytime running lights. Park Assistant and Park Assist Plus are now standard. New alloy wheels complete the picture.
It was recently announced that Audi cut the A7 Sportback from the Dutch delivery range. We are still awaiting a response from the Dutch importer to the question of whether the A7 Sportback will soon be available in the Netherlands again.
