I hate this new HUGE grill styling that all new Audi's will have. The front grill looks WAY too big.

Kinda like BMW having the ugly rear ends

Ginormous grill. Not a good styling step at all there Audi.

Looks like a PS though.

Interesting - they took the grill from a circa-1980's Volvo parts bin...or maybe MOPAR (latest Dodge Ram).

I think the styling cues that the Germans are going with lately make Cadillac's look better and better every day. May be controversial to say so, but I think the front end of the Audi steals some of those Caddy styling cues (hard edges, angular lights).

Looks pretty cool to me.

The grill is way too large but if there was some sort of styling thing that cut all the way across the front sort of where the plate is then it might carry off the grill....there looks to be a black thing behind the plate but that just isn't enough. The headlights look very agressive though and I like that. The overall look is muscular.

2005 Audi A6










Expect the new A6 to have a similar engine lineup. Automobile Magazine reports that the new 3.0L V6 will feature direct injection to reach 240 HP. the 4.2 will likely reach 330 HP as with the new A8. Again, expect Front Wheel Drive and Quattro AWD. It will NOT share a platform with the new Passat, so expect the engine to still be longitudally mounted. That means that Quattro will still be a Torsen system and FWD cars should retain the Multitronic CVT. The new A6 will probably be a bit more luxurious and larger.

I'm still not liking the grill. The current one just looks so much more sleek yet powerful.

A4,A6, A8, all look the same. But that is not a bad thing in their case.

Audi Thinks Big On Next A6


hen is 6 as big as 8? When it's engineered by Audi. Exclusive spy shots in the current issue of Auto Express magazine show the next-generation A6 hot-weather testing in southern Europe, and it looks like the designers have big ideas for the newcomer.

Even though the overall shape of the car will remain the same as the current model, the test drivers were careful to tape up the huge front and rear overhangs. Underneath the plastic, the aluminium Audi's styling will be heavily influenced by the Nuvolari concept, driven by Auto Express in Issue 756. Our undisguised image shows how the distinctive headlights and deep grille will look on final production models.

Closing the size gap between the A6 and the A8 means there will be plenty of space inside the car when it's launched next spring. It will be available with a wide range of engines, from a 150bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder to a 240bhp 3.0-litre V6. Diesel buyers will get the choice of 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0-litre units. And following the successful debut of the technology in Audi's small-er models, the Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) system will eventually be used on all A6 petrol units. Range-topping four-wheel-drive quattro versions will come with Audi's tried and tested 4.2-litre V8, but lesser models will be driven exclusively by the front wheels.

Fans of the high-performance bi-turbo V8-equipped RS6 can look forward to the flagship replacement, but it won't arrive until 2007. As if the current version wasn't fast enough, the next variant will get an extra 43bhp, taking output to a supercar-baiting 493bhp.

Six months after the introduction of the four-door, an estate will go on sale badged A6 Avant, but fans will be more interested in the sleek coupé version, which will break cover in 2005.
