Outstanding space comfort and future-oriented digital competence combined with the visible form of an athlete: The new Audi A6 Avant is victorious in every circumstance. Sporty and elegant on the outside, cultivated and generous on the inside, the Avant is comprehensively networked with the attainments of the digital age and sets new standards in business class with its innovative driver assistance systems. Once again.
Attractive station wagons go by the name of Avant. The A6 Avant underscores this Audi claim by combining high everyday utility with dynamic design. Its dynamic and elegant body line appeals with large surfaces and balanced proportions. With a length of 4.94 metres (16.2 ft), the new Audi A6 Avant is 4 millimetres (0.2 in) shorter than the predecessor model.
A wide, low Singleframe grille dominates the front of the A6 Avant. A distinctive silhouette with a stretched front end and trapezoid window surfaces characterise the side view. Brawny blisters over the wheel arches emphasise the quattro drive. The sinewy roof line flows into a roof edge spoiler, which makes the side view appear even longer. The Avant’s D-pillars and rear window are particularly sloping, which reinforces the its appearance. An aluminium trim strip joins the two rear lights and visually underscores the width of the car. The colour palette for the Audi A6 Avant includes 13 shades. Brilliant black, Daytona grey, firmament blue, floret silver, glacier white, ibis white, carat beige, mythos black, Navarra blue, Soho brown, typhoon grey, tango red and Vesuvius greyT
There is the choice of the trim lines sport, design, design selection and S line sport package. The S line exterior package can be optionally combined will all trim variants. It has strong contours at the front and rear. The black styling package provides additional customisation options.
The futuristic interior design emphasises the high-tech character of the new Audi A6 Avant. Its strict horizontal orientation and stepped, three-dimensional structure gives the instrument panel a slim, lightweight look. Its black-panel design fuses seamlessly with the user interface of the operating system. The upper MMI touch response display is incorporated almost invisibly into the black‑panel architecture and with its orientation on the driver underscores the sporty characteristics of the A6. The centre tunnel console also features a black-panel look. It houses the lower display and a strip of buttons.
There is a choice of two dramatic lighting options for the interior: the ambient lighting package with white LEDs and the contour/ambient lighting package, which illuminates the interior. With the top equipment variant, the contour light traces the interior’s architecture and major lines. At the same time, the soft ambient light makes the instrument panel, the doors and the centre console appear to float. The optional illuminated door sill trims set additional lighting accents.
With frequent drivers and commuters in mind, the A6 Avant provides an extensive range of driver assistance systems. These use refined control mechanisms to enhance convenience and provide additional support for drivers’ tasks. Besides the standard “Audi pre sense front” emergency braking assist, customers can choose a total of 39 assistants in two different packages. The individual systems are bundled into the packages City and Tour. The tour package includes the adaptive cruise assist with narrowed road assist, efficiency assist, emergency assist and much more.
With the City package, five systems assist the driver: The crossing assist warns of critical cross-traffic in front of the car, and Audi pre sense 360° warns of vehicles approaching from the side. The rear cross traffic assist detects approaching vehicles when slowly driving backwards, for example when pulling out of a parking spot perpendicular to the road. Exit warning and lane change warning supplement the package.
