Read on below to learn more about the new 2019 Audi models.

2019 Audi A6

The Audi A6 is all-new for 2019, completely redesigned from its previous generation. There are some key styling elements that remain as a carryover, and fresh design cues on the 2019 A6 follow in-line with similar updates made to the new A7 and A8 sedans.

The 2019 Audi A6 features new, redesigned LED lighting at the front and rear fascia--the use of smarter, brighter lights means that this sleek midsize sedan can be designed with thinner head and tail lights without compromising visibility. Audi will be releasing a 2019 A6 Avant hatchback, but sadly only in Europe; at this time, we won't be seeing a new 2019 Avant in the US.

2019 Audi A7

The Audi A7 is a relatively new model offering in the lineup, having joined the family for the first time back in 2012; but that just makes this new redesign even more welcome and striking. This four-door coupe was one of the most popular models in its class in Charlotte for the previous generation, and upgrades for the second-gen car are sure to continue the trend.

The new 2019 Audi A7 features a new signature lighting feature in the form of a thin, aggressive taillight bar that stretches across the full distance of the rear fascia. This light bar, however, is just  one cue in a whole new language of design that Audi will be rolling out for more models going forward. The interior receives an update that focuses more on elegance and genuine quality than on flashiness or grandeur.
