With the new Audi A6 slated to debut later this year, it is only obvious that the wagon body-style is also currently under development. And this is exactly what our spy photographers have shot- the Audi A6 Avant.
Despite the heavy camouflage, one can easily spot the Audi design language, especially from the front where its similarity to the A4 is apparent. But of course, the larger footprint gives its identity away and so does the wagon silhouette beyond the B-pillar. Although the roofline is devoid of an aggressively sweeping stance, there’s just about enough curves to prevent it from looking boxy. Earlier A6 prototypes have been reported to be equipped with concealed sensors, which essentially indicate some sort of driver assistance functions.
Powering the upcoming Audi A6 line-up will be a set of four and six-cylinder engines (including the S6 version). The only variant with an eight-cylinder motor will be the future RS6, which is set to get the 4.0-litre V8 that was once seen on the 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo. Audi is expected introduce its new A6, in all its avatars, at this year’s Geneva Motor Show which kicks off in March.
