Geneva Auto Show 2018: All-new 2019 Audi A6 is a stunner

The 2019 Audi A6 was one of the most talked-about vehicles at this year’s Geneva Auto Show. Featuring impressive technology, a bold new design that improves on the already-beautiful current A6, and a stunning interior, the 2019 A6 has a lot to offer.

We know we sound like an Audi press release with that first paragraph, but the fact of the matter is that this thing is the real deal. We always felt it was a shame that the current A6 wasn’t more popular. I mean, the 5 Series and the E-Class are great and all, but design-wise the A6 always stood out in our minds.

It’s even better with the new-gen A6. Under the hood, North American 2019 Audi A6 models will come with a 3.0-liter turbo V6 engine that delivers 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Audi pairs that engine with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that gets the new A6 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds.

Moreover, there’s a light hybrid system in there in the form of a 48-volt battery that provides coasting opportunities between 55 and 160 km/h.

There will be a host of technology features in the 2019 Audi A6 starting with level 3 self-driving systems. Not allowed everywhere, level 3 self-driving nevertheless is the closest we can get to fully autonomous driving at the moment. Like the A7 and A8, the A6 can completely take over driving functions in certain situations.

Other features in the 2019 Audi A6 include a four-wheel driving system which improves cornering and low-speed agility, two touchscreens built into the center console and a drag coefficient of just 0,24.

The 2019 Audi A6 will hit North America towards the end of the year.
