German media has managed to obtain some preliminary details about the next-gen Audi A6. The model will have to face some fierce competition coming from the all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series and will bring a semi-autonomous driving system capable of driving the car itself at speeds of up to 37 mph (60 km/h). It will also boast a high-tech interior cabin and a new type of air suspension working with a camera to scan the road for imperfections and make the necessary adjustments.
According to Autobild, the next-gen Audi A6 is going to be available with a wide array of engines, including upgraded versions of the four-cylinder 2.0-liter units, along with a V8 4.0-liter TDI producing in excess of 400 PS (294 kW). The same report also mentions Audi could be working on a plug-in hybrid variant which will have a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine teamed up with an electric motor that develops 122 PS (90 kW).
The latest gossip indicates Audi will start selling the next-gen A6 Sedan in July, 2017 while the more practical Avant model will hit dealerships 9 months later.
