The current Audi A6 has been with us for quite a while now, so Audi have decided it’s time for a refresh with styling tweaks and changes to the engine lineup.

Outside it is a refresh rather than a redo, the grille is now the standard hexagon shape while the headlights receive new forked LED inserts.

The front bumper now becomes more aggressive, in line with the RS versions while at the rear the 6 gains inbuilt trapezoidal exhausts.

The new A6 will also see Audi’s new trick dynamic indicators appear, which we like very much, and the LEDs front and rear can be upgraded to the latest LED.

Inside it is business as usual for the A6, except the infotainment system gets an update and the decor options are tweaked.
