Audi’s A6 and A7 underwent their respective mid-cycle updates for 2016, which saw the cars receive refreshed exterior styling and more technology in the cabin.

For the 2017 model year, Audi is implementing a few more updates.

Specifications for the United States are yet to be released but we can confirm the cars will receive tweaked bumpers at both ends, an expanded color palette and new wheel patterns.

For the interior, there are new LED ambient lighting packages, aluminum and wood dash accents, and electronic convenience features. The latter includes improved Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a wireless charging pad and an available rear-seat entertainment package utilizing a pair of tablet PCs.

Powertrains remain unchanged which means a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder base option in the A6 and a 3.0-liter V-6 base option in the A7. The S6 and S7 continue with a 4.0-liter V-8, as does the RS 7. Given the Volkswagen Group’s ongoing diesel scandal, the previous diesel option offered on the cars is likely to continue to remain off the shelf.

Deliveries of the updated A6 and A7 commence in the second half of 2016. Pricing is expected to remain unchanged from the 2016 model year where the A6 started at $46,200 and the A7 at $68,300. Both figures include destination.
