The 2017 Audi A6 and A7 models have been introduced, sporting minor changes as they head to dealerships this summer.

The 2017 Audi A6 sedan and Avant models have received an updated front end featuring bold contours that surround the air intakes in the new front apron. The side skirts and rear bumper are also more angular in shape while a new diffuser gives a nice finishing touch to the lower rear end. When equipped with the optional S line exterior package, the A6 models feature a new radiator grille with a corpus painted matte black while the slats are finished in gloss chrome.

Both the Audi A6 and A7 will receive two new paint colors: Matador Red and Gotland Green. In addition, Java Brown that was previously exclusive to the Audi A6 allroad will also be available for the Audi A6, A6 Avant and A7.
