The German automaker also announced that both hybrid and diesel versions of the luxury sedan will be produced.
The redesign of the A6 has been done to fit into the new design family at Audi, exemplified by the 2011 A8 sedan. Among the interior changes to the new A6: a new interior with a wrap-around dashboard, wood paneling and seats that are heated, cooled and able to massage the driver whilst driving.
The diesel engine choices will include a 2.0-liter turbo diesel that Audi is claiming will get 48 miles to the gallon. Audi will also continue to offer the 3.0-liter TFSI engine from the current A6 with 300-hp and 27-mpg.
The new A6 will also be available with a hybrid drivetrain. The 2012 Audi A6 hybrid will be Audi's second hybrid model after the Q5, and will be powered by a 2.0-liter gasoline engine coupled to an electric motor and an eight-speed transmission.
