Audi announced yesterday that a redesigned A6 is set to make its market debut in early 2011. The 2012 A6 will most likely reach U.S. markets in the summer, but fortunately for you, the new A6 will first show up at the Chicago Auto Show in February. With a lighter body, sportier chassis and smarter cabin technology, the ’12 A6 makes good on Audi’s claim of Truth in Engineering.
The German manufacturer claims much of the body of the new A6 consists of aluminum and high-tech steels, rendering it uncommonly light and safe. Also striving to embody athleticism and elegance, the sedan is 16.1 feet long and 6.1 feet wide, but just 4.8 feet high. Optional LED headlights help to add emphasis to the striking new expression at the front.
According to Audi, the new A6 features the logical ergonomics concept that distinguishes all of the brand’s models. Audi offers an optional head-up display, which projects important information onto the windshield. The MMI touch operating system is also available as an option and MMI navigation plus works closely together with the optional assistance and safety systems in the new A6. For example, in many situations, the Audi pre sense safety system is able to reduce accidents and their consequences, or even prevent them altogether.
We can’t wait to see how the new A6 will stand up to the competition. Hopefully Audi has re-engineered a truly outstanding vehicle. To hold you over until the show, we’ve provided photos from Audi of the 2012 A6. What do you think?
