Audi is all set to launch the new generation of the A6 in India and yes the date is set for October 24, when we get to know the price of the car. This is the 8th generation of the model that’s coming to India and it might be a little late to the party but with the extensive changes inside and out, there are a lot of expectations from the car. On the outside, the new Audi A6 gets major design and styling updates, with the exterior inspired by the new A7 and A8. That is evident in the single-frame hexagonal grille, flanked by a set of sharp-looking LED headlamps with LED daytime running lamps as well. The front bumper becomes beefier and gets subtle chrome detailing as well, making the car look more elegant and classier than before. There is no long wheelbase version that’s coming to India and the new-gen will come with the standard wheelbase only.
The cabin will see a black panel design with a cool lounge setting kind of a design. There is a new MMI touchscreen in the middle and a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit behind the steering wheel. Audi will also be offering MMI Navigation Plus which will have even more options on the A6. The new-gen Audi A6 gets about 37 driver assistance systems which have been bundled into three packages which are the park assist, city assist and tour assist. All three packages have different driver assistance systems on offer but it remains to be seen as to which packages will be available to customers in India.
