Black Edition Now Available For Audi A6 Saloon And Avant Estate

The Audi Black Edition trim, a range-topping variant that shows plenty of teeth with dark-tinted styling, is making a comeback. This time it will be on the latest Audi A6 saloon and Avant estate.

Audi’s Black Edition is a range-topping trim that’s based on the popular S-Line configuration coupled with darkly tinted styling designs. Perhaps the biggest change you’ll see with the trim is the new alloy wheel design. The S-Line version of the A6 gets 19-inch wheels while the Black Trim boosted this up to 20-inch V-spoke design finished in matt titanium.

The exterior design is littered with black tinted design—from the rear windows to the grille to the front air intakes to the door mirrors to the rear diffuser. These are all finished in black. On the A6 Avant, the roof rails are clad in black, too.

Inside the cabin, things are more S-Line than Black Edition. The interior is the regular S-Line trim we got to see before. It has front sports seats finished in a combination of Alcantara and leather with a perforated leather sports steering wheel.

All technology you’ll see on an A6 Black Edition was carried over from the S-Line trim. Standard to both trim levels is Audi’s latest dual-screen infotainment set-up. Buyers can opt to upgrade the system via a Technology pack, which will include Google Maps-assisted navigation, a much larger 10.1-inch lower display and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument panel.

Whereas the S-Line trim stuck with regular LED units, the Black Edition improved on these with LED matrix headlights.

You can now get your hands on the A6 Black Edition either for the Saloon or the Avant estate. The models are priced from £44,635 ($57,563.80) for the 2.0-liter turbocharged 40 TDI saloon. That’s £2,340 ($3,018.19) more than its equivalent S-Line Model. The Black Edition trim can fit all available powertrains of the A6.

Fresh Details On The Completely Redesigned 2020 Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender was discontinued in 2016 because of safety reason (they couldn’t even fit the previous Defender with airbags) but we’re about to see a completely revamped and redesigned Defender for the 2020 model year.

A new report surfaced that said the new Defender will come out sometime in the next six months with new and cleaner engines, as well as the extensive use of aluminum on its body. Clearly, the Defender will be targeted to a more upscale market.

We’ve already seen a prototype of the new Defender at the end of 2018. Land Rover was generous enough to provide a batch of pictures of the off-roader’s camouflaged prototype. While we’re not exactly sure if the new Defender will be as boxy as the photos suggest, we do know that it will take after the Discovery model with a slightly higher ride height.

The Defender has always been known for being functional and direct to the point. It’s not a hit or a miss. When people buy a Defender, they know what they’re getting—which is, comfort-wise, means nothing. The Defender was all about performance and functionality, but the 2020 model will change that. This new off-roader hopes to marry function with style and substance and a whole lot of modern tech.

Reports based on Motortrend’s Johnny Lieberman’s Instagram post showed that the Defender would have an independent rear side and an air suspension fitted to it. Though this was not the conditions that the Defender was made for, what could Land Rover do exactly? They may alienate the farmers who really just like a functional Land Rover to roam over their lands, but the new Defender also has a chance to tap a new market and that should be fine.

The fully-independent suspension setup that Mr. Lieberman spied is similar to the one under the Land Rover Discovery. Does that mean we can expect the same 2.0-liter gasoline engines? We only have six months to wait as this one’s scheduled to debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. It will go on sale in 2020.
