Audi unveils changes to A6, A7, TT RS models

By ,

The Audi A6 sedan, A7 Sportback, and TT RS Coupe and Roadster all receive significant updates for 2017. Check them out below.

2017 Audi A6 and A7 Sportback

On the exterior, changes to the front end accentuate horizontality: The revised Audi A6 features bold contours that surround the air inlets in the new front apron, and struts in high-gloss black that divide the lateral ventilation grilles horizontally. The side sills and rear bumper are also more angular in shape. A new diffuser provides the finishing touch to the lower rear end.

Three new paint colours are available including Java brown, matador red and Gotland green. There are two new wheel designs you can select for the A6, and three for the A7.

Inside, new metallic and wood trim pieces are available. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, wireless smartphone charging, and rear-seat entertainment in the form of two Audi tablets that connect to the car and can also be used away from it are other highlights.

Deliveries will take place in the summer. There has been no increase in the starting prices, Audi promises.

2017 Audi TT RS Coupe and Roadster

Making its world debut at Auto China 2016 in Beijing, these two sports cars boast a new 5-cylinder engine that produces a remarkable 400 horsepower, as well as 354 lb-ft of torque from 1,700-5,800 rpm.

The new TT RS Coupe accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and the Roadster in 3.9 seconds ― numbers that are on par with the performance of a supercar. Audi can govern the top speed to 250 km/h or an optional 280 km/h.

Blessed with a sporty chassis and direct steering for outstanding handling, the cars also stand out visually with Matrix OLED technology in the taillights as an option. This is a first in a series-production Audi.
