The design for the new A6 was done alongside the next-generation A7 (due 2017) and A8 (due late 2016) to ensure the designs were suitably different and not just scaled-up and scaled-down versions of the same car. The Prologue concept car was done after the future production models, Lichte claimed, to ensure that its design was relevant to the future and would not over-promise and under-deliver. The new A6 will be underpinned by the second-generation MLB platform, which will appear first on the Q7 SUV early next year before being rolled out across a whole range of Volkswagen Group products sized from the Audi A5 and upwards.
