Audi’s high-tech reinvention of its luxury sedan range continues, with the 2019 Audi A6 the latest to break cover. Making its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 next week, the new A6 brings the German automaker’s full-size sedan into its eighth generation, borrowing gadgetry from the larger and more expensive 2019 Audi A8.
From the outside, the shared DNA with the A8 is clear. The grille has grown, and the crease-lines sharpened; it’s a half-inch wider than before, and slightly longer and lower. Audi says the car is also more slippery through the air, too, with a drag coefficient of just 0.24. That doesn’t just help with economy, but how much road noise makes it through to the cabin, too.
The body shell is a mixture of steel and aluminum, focusing on both a reduction in weight and an increase in rigidity. It’s also more spacious inside, with more head, leg, and shoulder room in the rear, and a broader trunk that can now handle two golf bags horizontally, even though its 18.7 cu-ft capacity is unchanged.
