Like the A8 and the A7 Sportback, the new Audi A6 is an expressive ambassador of the new Audi design language. With taut surfaces, sharply defined edges and striking lines, the business-class sedan unmistakably conveys its character. It stands for sporty elegance, high tech and sophistication. The exterior stands out with balanced proportions and short overhangs, the dimensions of the eighth-generation Audi A6 have grown a few millimeters compared with its predecessor model line – by seven millimeters (0.3 in) to 4.94 meters (16.2 ft) long, by twelve millimeters (0.5 in) to 1.89 meters (6.2 ft) wide and by two millimeters (0.1 in) to 1.46 meters (4.8 ft) high. The wide, low-slung Singleframe grille with chrome trim, the flat headlights and the powerfully contoured air inlets exude elegance and sportiness at the front. In the side view, the powerfully taut contours above the wheel arches are testimony to Audi’s quattro genes. The taut roofline flows into the steeply raked C-pillars. A chrome strip accentuates the rear and provides a link between the lights. The paint range includes a choice of 14 colors. In addition to the basic version, customers have a choice of the sport and design trim lines as well as the S line exterior package.
