-5th generation for the mid-size sedan
- New platform, design and features
- Expected to come to India by mid-2019
The 5th generation Audi A6 has been spotted testing in India ahead of a probable mid-2019 launch. It’s been around for a while (six months to be precise) and in that time, we’ve spoken in much detail about the car so here is a short summary to jog your memory. If you want all the details, click on the link here to read what we wrote when the car was unveiled.
In the photos, this new A6 looks like the larger A8 because good looks run in the family and well, mostly because Audi likes to keep uniformity in its cars. There’s the big grille, a sort of low GT-like stance and of course, that chrome strip that sits on the lower edge of the boot lid.
India will get this A6 with both petrol and diesel power and it’s going to be locally assembled at the Audi facility in Aurangabad. The arrival of this A6 will complete the full cycle of updates for this segment of cars as we already have the latest generations of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Jaguar XF, Lexus ES and Volvo S90.
