Almost as if Audi designers come up with awesome ideas and then management shots them down. Still a lot of cars are designed many years before so no doubt this design language is much older than 5-10 years.

Slightly more revealing shots. Well, anyone expecting more than the current car with the boxier grille form the A8 is going to be disappointed...




Predictable is a polite way to describe the next generation A6, that was expected by many German magazines to offer "groundbreaking new design language"...

It looks OK but I'd want to ask Marc Lichte why he thinks his Audis ushered in a bold new styling language.

Well, maybe he meant the rear light graphics

But to be fair the last 2 generations weren't exactly that much different

The Avant, pretty close up, and with little camo (not that it makes much of a difference, as it just looks, surprise surprise, exactly like the current model with new lights and and a slightly more angular grille)

And with a sedan as well, likely an S-Line or S6



Also it seems the huge fake exhausts from the new Q5 arrive at the A6 as well....

I have to compare it to the current A6 to spot the new design bits.

If it has fake exhausts, it's the new one ;)

Those better be mule parts/camo.... fake exhausts are the pinnacle of tackiness, even worse than fake hood vents (Kia Stinger...)
