Audi Gives A6 Line A Major Facelift
|   Tuesday, September 16, 2014
The new model year, 2015, for which dealers are now gearing up is likely to prove very interesting for the auto industry. The new model year is the halfway point of this decade, the second of the 21st century, and the car industry is either offering new models, deleting models from its lines or giving vehicles major facelifts.

At Audi, the A6 sedan and A6 Avant wagon have received a major facelift that has refreshed the line, giving it a more striking look.
According to Yahoo's Motoramic, the facelift gives the A6 a more aggressive look. The facelift includes reworked bumpers, the exhaust and rear light clusters have also be tweaked.

The A6 also sports new bright white headlights made up of high white LEDs (light-emitting diodes). The new headlights not only enhance the A6's new front end look but also give the driver more flexibility in lighting the road ahead. Controlled by the A6's electronics package, the LEDs can be activated singly or in pairs. And, because the LEDs can be activated individually, in any configuration, the headlights' function is also enhanced. LED lighting also enhances safety because the light they shine on the road ahead is brighter and cuts through the night, giving you a better, brighter and somewhat further look at the road ahead.

At night the flexibility of LED arrays is apparent as is the security they bring. For example, because you can activate each light separately, you can actually turn off the left-hand headlight to keep from blinding oncoming drivers. The right-hand headlight continues to light your way. The ability to reconfigure the LED lighting gives you the flexibility to use the headlights as road lights in fog or heavy precipitation because their output can be shone only the road at the front of the vehicle, much like fog lights do today. Further, you can tailor the output to pierce the dark and light up a greater distance in front of your vehicle.

Interior enhancements feature the increased use of chrome or bright accents as well as more choice in seats and seating materials. Also, the touchscreen "infotainment" center has been brought up to date, becoming the interface for the A6's Internet access system. The enhancements have also turned the A6 into a rolling WiFi hotspot, the link between the Internet and the A6. And, enhancements have improved the navigation system, media streaming from the Internet and better smartphone integration.

Drivers have a wider choice of safety systems, including an optional heads-up display, as well as an adaptive cruise control system. The cruise control systems watches the car directly in front of the A6 and matches your speed to the cars in front. It also looks at the cars to the rear to ensure your safety. An active lane assist system keeps the Audi A6 straight, while a capacitive rear camera system enables the driver to see clearly to the rear.

Finally, the improvements for 2o15 include emission revisions for the 2-liter TDI diesel engine. The changes have also improved the mileage of the TDI so that it is capable of achieving up to 64 mpg.
