2019 Audi A6 will have its US debut next week in New York

Audi unveiled the all-new 2019 Audi A6 earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show and now the new A6 is ready for its debut in the United States. Audi has confirmed that the eighth generation 2019 A6 will debut next week at the New York Auto Show before it arrives in showrooms later this year.

The 2019 Audi A6 isn’t a dramatic departure from the seventh generation A6, but it does look a bit crisper than before. The 2019 A6 is also a tad bit bigger than its predecessor since it’s now 0.3-inches longer and 0.5-inches wider. At launch the US-spec A6 will arrive with only one engine option, the 3.0L turbocharged V6. The engine features a 48-volt mild hybrid system and generates 340 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission will be standard.

The sportier S6 and RS 6 models will eventually be introduced and an A6 e-tron plug-in hybrid is also expected.

Inside there’s more headroom, shoulder room in the front and rear and more legroom for your friends in the back. The 2019 A6 also gets the latest MMI navigation system that has a new self-learning function that can generate suggestions based on frequently driven routes.

The A6 will also arrive in time to get the new myAudi app that will offer A6 owners access to digital services through their compatible smartphone, including myAudi Navigation. This time-saving function becomes a personal mobility manager, where a route started on a smartphone, continued in the on-board system upon entering the vehicle and then passed back to the smartphone to guide the occupant to their next destination – by foot or public transport.
