Audi Hints The All-New A6 Could Debut In Geneva 4

Audi doesn’t have plans to hold a press conference at the North American International Auto Show but it appears the company could still reveal the all-new A6 later this month.

Back in December, we told you about the company’s “Reveal the A6” film competition and now the automaker has released additional details about the campaign which asks aspiring filmmakers to produce a video for the upcoming sedan.

The people who submit the six best ideas will be invited to Ingolstadt to “experience the new Audi A6 Sedan up close” on January 15th. It remains unclear if this is just a private showing but it could suggest the company will reveal the car on that day as the material goes on to say “Up to this point, the car will not be disclosed to the public.”

The six filmmakers will then be given €15,000 ($18,104) to turn their ideas into a film that needs to be completed by February 12th. The three best films will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show and this suggests the car will make its debut in Switzerland.

Audi is remaining tight-lipped about the model but the company said those “looking for inspiration for the features” on the A6 should “take a closer look at the new Audi A7 Sportback.” Notable highlights on the latter model include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a new interior layout that consists of a 10.1-inch upper display and an 8.6-inch lower display which provides access to various climate control and comfort functions.

We can also expect a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system and an assortment of advanced driver assistance systems which use up to five radar sensors, five cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and a laser scanner.

Under the hood, there will be an assortment of four- and six-cylinder engines including a 3.0-liter TFSI V6 which develops 340 PS (250 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. In the A7, the engine enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.3 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Leaky Fuel Lines Prompt The Recall Of 50,000 Audi A6s And A7s 24
Dec
Posted by Carscoops Staff in audi, Audi A6, Audi A7, NHTSA, Recalls on 12 24th, 2017


Do you drive an Audi A6 or A7? Be careful, because it could spring a fuel leak.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced the recall of nearly 50,000 of them from the 2012-14 model years for just that reason.

The problem comes down to a compression point in the fuel line, which could weaken, potentially resulting in a leak. And since leaking fuel could start a fire, the issue is apparently being taken seriously.

The issue is restricted to models equipped with the 3.0 TFSI engine, so owners of models otherwise motivated needn’t worry. The manufacturer estimates 48,693 vehicles will be affected in the United States alone.

They’ll each need to have their fuel lines replaced in a recall campaign expected to get underway on February 5. So if you have one in your driveway, you can expect to hear from Audi between now and then so you can arrange to bring your car in for service.

New Audi A6 Confirmed For 2018 As Company Kicks Off Film Competition 19
Dec
Posted by Michael Gauthier in audi, Audi A6, Audi Videos, video on 12 19th, 2017


Audi is gearing up to unveil the all-new A6 and the company has announced plans to hold a film competition to help support the model’s launch.

The competition kicks off on December 21st but Audi says they are looking for “young talents and filmmakers to show off their vision” for the world premiere of the new A6 sedan. The company adds that people who are interested in the competition should focus on comfort, digitalization, and sportiness.

Audi is keeping tight-lipped about the car but the company did confirm it will be unveiled next year. That’s not much to go on but previous spy photos have shown the model will follow in the footsteps of the A8 and adopt a stylish front fascia with a wide grille that is flanked by slender headlights.

Under the hood, we can expect an assortment of four- and six-cylinder engines including a 3.0-liter TFSI V6 which develops 340 PS (250 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. Later on, we can expect high-performance models and possibly a couple of plug-in hybrid variants.

Regardless of what’s under the hood, the new A6 will be significantly more advanced than its predecessor as the model is slated to come with the Level 3 semi-autonomous driving system from the A8.

New Audi A6 Reportedly Coming With Level 3 Autonomous Driving Next Year 13
Dec
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in audi, Audi A6, Audi RS6, Audi S6, Autonomous, Geneva Motor Show, PHEV, Reports on 12 13th, 2017


Audi have marketed the new generation A8 as being the first car on the market equipped with Level 3 autonomous driving, and now they’re going to implement the technology into the upcoming A6 as well.

Expected to debut next year, probably at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March, according to reports Autocar, the new A6 will be able to handle most driving aspects, but the driver must be ready to take control at any time.

This would give it a boost over its usual contenders such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series, and it could also adopt its larger sibling’s remote parking feature, which allows users to operate the car via a remote, even if there isn’t anyone inside.

Visually, the next-gen Audi A6 will borrow some cues from the A8. It will also get some styling elements with the newly introduced A7, with which it shares its underpinnings.

Customers will be able to choose from a variety of engines that will include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, 3.0-liter V6, and 4.0-liter V8, alongside two possible PHEVs. In 2019, Audi will introduce the S6 that’s said to feature more than 450hp, while the range-topping RS6 won’t arrive beforel 2020 and could adopt the same PHEV powertrain as the Porsche Panamera S-E Hybrid, which develops 680PS (670hp) and 850Nm (626lb-ft) of torque from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and electric motor combo.

All-New 2019 Audi A6 Spotted With Production Lights – No, Not Those… 1
Dec
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in audi, Audi A6, Audi Scoops, Scoops on 12 1st, 2017


The winter test season is here and our spies caught the 2019 Audi A6 wearing its final production lights.

However, don’t get your hopes up because these don’t include the set of projectors mounted on the roof. Compared to the already introduced A7, the new Audi A6’s LED headlights appear to adopt a diffent, more basic style while the rear ones look predictably similar.

Also, and despite the camouflage tape hiding it, the rear end is expected to feature an LED stripe between the taillights, similar to those found in the A8 and of course the A7.

The combination of the slimmer headlights with the wider grille makes the new A6 look wider and lower than the current generation, spicing up a little bit the evolved but familiar lines.

Audi’s latest tech features will be present, including the 48-volt electrical architecture, safety systems and semi-autonomous capability. By the time it arrives at dealerships, the new Audi A6 is expected to offer more advanced tech than its main rivals, which includes the Mercedes E-Class and the BMW 5-Series.

Traditionally Audi will offer the new A6 in both sedan and Avant bodystyles, while the popular Allroad version is expected to join the range a few months after its market launch. Expect to see the new Audi A6 making its first appearance in 2018.

Four New Audi Models Coming By Mid-2018, Compact EV Due In 2020 28
Jul
Posted by Michael Gauthier in audi, Audi A1, Audi A6, Audi A7, Audi A8, Audi Q3, Audi Q8 on 07 28th, 2017


Audi Chairman Rupert Stadler has confirmed the company will launch at least four models by the middle of next year.

During the company’s interim financial report, Stadler said “By the middle of 2018, we will present new generations of four more core model series. In addition, we will expand our product offering in the top segments next year with the Audi Q8 and the fully electric Audi e-tron.”

The company was tight-lipped on specifics but confirmed the A6 and A7 Sportback will be launched early next year. The other two models remain unconfirmed but previous reports have suggested they could be the new A1 and Q3.

Stadler went on to reconfirm plans to launch the e-tron in 2018 and the e-tron Sportback in 2019. However, he also revealed the company will offer a “premium electric car in the compact segment” beginning in 2020. Little is known about the model but it could potentially be a Tesla Model 3 competitor.

Besides talking about the new models, Stadler confirmed the A8’s Level 3 autonomous driving system will be activated early next year. As he explained, “As soon as the legal framework permits it, we will gradually bring the new piloted driving functions into series production beginning in 2018.”
