Audi is giving the A6 and A7 a discreet facelift along with adding new goodies.
The A7 Sportback has been around since 2010 and was followed a year later by the A6, but Audi isn’t ready yet to introduce brand new replacements. The current models will soldier on for a while which is why the folks from Ingolstadt have decided it would be appropriate to come up with a series of revisions for the existing models.
Work started on the outside where the A6 fitted with the optional S line package has received a sharper front fascia boasting an updated radiator grille with a matte black look and gloss chrome slats. In addition, the car’s side air inlets are now adorned by chrome struts, and from now on the versions fitted with adaptive cruise control will have chrome rings.
Matador Red and Gotland Green are joining the color palette and are available for the hotter S versions as well. In addition, the models can now be ordered with a Java Brown hue which was previously offered only on the rugged A6 allroad. Go for the A6 Sedan or A6 Avant and you get to pick from two fresh wheel designs, while the sexy A7 Sportback gains three new alloys.
The A6 allroad is gaining an optional Advanced package which encompasses a new shade called “Soho Brown” and a gray look for the add-on body parts. The car rides on 20-inch wheels and is equipped with a permanent all-wheel-drive quattro system featuring a sport differential. The cabin of the jacked-up midsize wagon fitted with this optional kit comes with sport seats wrapped in Valcona leather in Santos Brown with silver stitching. Velour floor mats along with Aluminum Ellipse silver or fine grain birch natural agate gray inlays round off the updates.
The A6 and A7 along with their S counterparts now take advantage of new LED lighting for the cabin and the trunk. These four models can be optionally fitted with new inlays in Aluminum Ellipse silver and fine grain birch natural agate gray, while the A6 allroad can be specified with an Aluminum Ellipse bronze trim.
On the tech side, smartphone connectivity through Apple Car Play and Android Auto is now displayed on the MMI monitor and Audi is adding inductive charging functionality to its phone box. Rear-seat entertainment is granted by a pair of detachable tablets offered for both the A and S versions of the two model lineups.
The revised models are scheduled to go on sale very soon without any price changes and Audi says deliveries will kick off in the summer.
