The rear gets an all new design bumper that comes with twin exhausts and reflector strips on them. New design alloys are also seen on the test mule. The A6 looks a lot smarter and very trendy in this all new avatar.
On the inside the 2019 A6 gets a dual screen setup as the infotainment screen that is a 10.1-inches in size and another 8.6 inch screen under it that replaces the conventional control buttons for the climate control etc. You also gets the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit along with a heads-up display on the package making the dash appear extremely futuristic.
