2016 Audi A6 Family Gets Mid-Cycle Refresh, More Powerful Engine And More

Earlier this year, Audi announced that it will be giving its A6 vehicle family a midcycle update. That original announcement outlined most of the updates and changes to the 2016 A6, but it did leave out just a few. So here’s our chance to revisit the changes and updates 2016 Audi A6.

The most noticeable changes to the 2016 A6 range are the updates to the exterior, where new LED headlights and taillights, reworked fascia, and new tailpipes create an athletic road stance.

Meanwhile, the 2016 A6 2.0T models cradles an all-new 2.0-liter TFSI engine making 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, which is 32 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque more than the outgoing 2.0-liter turbo motor.

HORSEPOWER: 252 333 240
TORQUE: 273 325 428

Inside, the 2016 Audi A6 features all kinds of noteworthy changes, including:

  • New seating surface colors and inlay selections with refined alu-effect trim details
  • An expansion to the available Driver Assistance package that now features night vision, animal detection, adaptive cruise control with new Stop&Go function and secondary collision assist
  • Updated infotainment systems that enhance the driver and passenger experience through higher levels of interior luxury and technological refinement
  • The Audi connect system now features Siri Eyes Free accesses the internet via a 4G LTE connection, allowing for faster access to Google Earth and Google Street View, real-time traffic updates, and integrated Wi-Fi hotspot for passenger use.

If they’re not there already, look for the refreshed 2016 A6 to begin arriving at your local Audi dealers in May-June timeframe. Unfortunately, the U.S. continues to only receive the four-door sedan A6 and S6, while other markets are lucky enough to be able to purchase a wagon in A6, S6, and high-performance RS6 forms, as well as a ruggedized A6 allroad. Here’s to hoping that Audi deems it worthwhile to offer those models in the New World at some point in the not-too-distant future.
