Audi design boss Marc Lichte has shared the first teaser image of the new A6, A7, and A8 sedans in an interview with L'argus.fr. All three of them have a more angular design, taking inspiration from the Audi Prologue Concepts.
The next-gen A6, A7, and A8 will get a flatter six-point single frame grille, sculpted bonnet and new bumper with unique character lines. By contrast, the A7 looks more aggressive thanks to a lower-profile grille and angled headlights.
The side air intakes of the next-gen A7 are also larger, and there is also a protruding chin spoiler. Overall, the model will be closest in look to the prologue concept that showcased Audi's new design language.
The next-gen A6 features larger headlights and grille compared to the A7 along with a U-shaped air intake that goes under the grille. Lichte also said about the styling difference at the rear. The A8 will get a chrome bar that extends across the tail lights.
On the other side, the A6 will get a thin bar, and the A7 won't feature it. The A8 and Q8 will get an ultra-thin LED strip for a more refined light signature. We can expect Audi to unveil the A8 first before the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, followed by the A7 and A8.
