Audi is a car company which loves to keep updating its vehicles. A little mid-life refresh allows it to tweak and edit its vehicles without drastically altering their fundamentals. It means that they can introduce some new technology while putting a little bit of life back into models which may have been around for a little while.
That’s the case with the A6 and A7, which have both been updated with some new features and specifications. Here, we’re going to go through everything you need to know about them.
Simplified trim levels
To make things a little easier, Audi has simplified the available trim levels for both the A6 and A7. Now, there are three to choose from - Sport, S Line and Black Edition. Each brings a distinct new look, too, with Sport trim cars, for example, getting a radiator grille finished in dark chrome. S line versions have this section in chrome, while Black Edition cars, as you might expect, have these sections completed in black.
It means that you’ll easily be able to differentiate between the trim levels at a glance.
Improved standard equipment
Even though the trim levels have been simplified, the level of standard equipment hasn’t been diminished. All versions get Matrix LED headlights with dynamic front and rear indicators, while electric seats and camera-based traffic sign recognition are fitted as standard.
You also get a multifunction steering wheel included from the off, allowing you to control various elements of the infotainment and communication systems without having to take your hands off the wheel.
New technology packs
Though the level of tech that you get onboard the A6 and A7 models as standard is good from the get-go, you can add to them with some new technology packs. The standard Technology Pack adds features such as an upgraded Bang & Olufsen sound system, as well as additional LED interior lighting and a 360-degree parking camera.
The Technology Pack Pro, meanwhile, adds in four-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof and USB-C charging in the rear to name but a few features.
Revised trims for ‘S’ models
Performance-orientated S models have also been updated with a new grille design, helping to sharpen the look of these go-faster versions. They both continue to use a powerful turbocharged V6 diesel engine, too, which brings assured performance.
New exterior colours
If you’re after more personalisation, then these updated A6 and A7 models will no doubt appeal. A total of 12 colours are available, with highlights including Arcona White and Madeira Brown Metallic.
On S line cars and full-fat ‘S’ models, there are also Grenadine Red Metallic and head-turning Ascari Blue Metallic available for the first time.
