Audi A6 Black Edition variants launched for saloon and Avant estate

The new Audi A6 turns to the dark side with the return of Black Edition trim, which adds new alloys and plenty of black touches

Audi has announced another set of Black Edition specification cars, with the trim level now available on the latest A6 saloon and Avant estate.

The Audi A6 Black Edition is a range-topping trim, building up from the popular S-Line configuration with several darkly tinted styling tweaks.

The biggest change is the adoption of a new alloy wheel design. While S-Line versions of the A6 ride on 19-inch wheels, Black Edition cars get new 20-inch V-spoke design wheels finished in matt titanium.

Elsewhere, the exterior design is altered with the addition of tinted rear windows plus a grille, front air intakes, door mirrors and a rear diffuser all finished in black. On the A6 Avant, the roof rails are tinted, too.

These are the only stying changes. In the cabin you’ll find the usual S-Line interior and trim, complete with front sports seats finished in a combination of Alcantara and leather, plus a perforated leather sports steering wheel.

Equipment is almost carried over directly from S-Line versions of the A6. Audi’s latest dual-screen infotainment set-up is standard, though it can be upgraded through the Technology pack to include Google Maps assisted navigation, a larger 10.1-inch lower display and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument panel. LED matrix headlights are the difference - an upgrade on the S-Line’s regular LED units.

The A6 and A6 Avant Black Edition models are available now priced from £44,635 for the 2.0-litre turbocharged 40 TDI saloon – a £2,340 premium over the equivalent S-Line model. Black Edition trim can be specified on every powertrain currently available for the A6.
