Audi said it has applied its new Audi design language, upgrading A6 with sportiness along with Audi’s pick for a panoramic sunroof, matrix light-emitting diode headlights and dynamic turn signal-implied LED taillights. 

The New Audi A6’s cockpit area has been renovated as well. The carmaker has attached dual-touch screen navigation by applying “virtual cockpit plus” system. 

Some of the safety features include adaptive cruise control assist and presense collision-detection technology using a 360-degree camera. A driver can also use the myAudi application to remotely control and find the vehicle.
