Audi's head of design has revealed some new details about the next-generation A6.

Speaking to Autocar, Marc Lichte confirmed the car's design has already been completed and it will feature styling inspired by the Prologue concept which debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show earlier this year. Lichte went on to say the car was designed alongside the 2016 A8 and 2017 A7 to ensure all three models are distinctive in their own right.

Additional information is limited but the A6 is slated to ride on the MLB Evo platform that recently debuted on the Q7. This likely means the next-generation model will be lighter than its predecessor and feature similar engines to the Q7.
