Under the hot lights of the LA Auto Show, Audi has revealed the latest versions of the A6 and A7. 

Both of the cars receive new styling which consists of new bumpers, trapezoidal tailpipes and new LED lights all around. In both cases the changes are pretty subtle, but Audi says they offer a “more dynamic stance and greater presence on the road.”

The 2015 A6 is available with four different powerplant options, a 2.0T, 3.0T, a TDI clean diesel option and of course the high-performance S6. For power, the base 2.0-liter now generates 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque while the 3.0T model offers 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque.
