2016 Audi A6

Audi A6 is definitely one of the most popular executive cars around. It was originally launched in 1994 as successor of legendary Audi 100. So far we have seen four generations of this model. Current generation was launched in 2011, so it is about time to see some mid-cycle updates. The testing mule is spotted and it is still under a camouflage. Just like it was case with some earlier model, it is expected that this refreshed model will be inspired by its larger brother A8, which was refreshed last year. Beside outside changes, it is expected to see some changes inside 2016 Audi A6, while the engine line-up will probably remain the same.

The S6 variant will also get some novelties like new, more aggressive bumpers, wheels and quad-exhaust tips.

Transmission will also remain the same, which means that you will have a choice between 6-speed manual, 8-speed automatic and 7-speed S Tronic DCT gearbox. On the other side, the S6 variant will be slightly tuned up. The 4.0 V8 engine will now output 435 instead of 420 horses.
