The next generation Audi A6 sedan is about a year away from its debut, but if this rendering is anything to go by, this year's Sportback concept will be the primary influence for Audi's redesigned mid-sizer. The Sportback provided the biggest evolution of Audi's design language since the debut of its massive shield grilles earlier in the decade.

The updated look includes more surface development in the nose and the possible production debut of a new hexagonal grille. The headlight clusters have a shape that's pinched toward the center of the car, in a similar fashion to the taillights on recent models like the A4 and Q5. At this point we don't know what the greenhouse will look like, but a change from the rounded shape of the last generation seems likely -- and overdue.

      That's a really sad looking face, it looks like it wants to cry.

      Anybody else disappointed by how every new sedan seems to look more and more like a hatchback? I mean, it looks so bad. Short decks look good, but no deck, imo, makes it look long and tall, which is very bad. The new XJ, the new E, now this, what's next? I like sedans because they have a hood and a trunk. Sticking a hatch on a huge sedan looks terrible. I hope this is not the new trend.

      Good god, that interior is aweful. The exterior is trying to look too much like the craptastic flavors of the newer BMW's and the interior is just hideous. What is with that wood? It looks like plywood with lacquer on it.

      Hope they change more than just the front & rear clips, Audi design was clean and different 10 years ago but its getting very generic as of late, saw a base A4 the other day and thought it was a Hyundai, only thing keeping it current are those cool LED DTR lights.

      i think the A7 will be one of the most gorgeous 4-door cars out there and i think the new grill design fits it very well. as far as the A6 is concerned i don´t think they can do anything wrong if they keep the design similar to the actual one. minor changes is the way.

        You say boring, I say understated and classy.

        Really? I think it looks slick and stylish without being overwraught or showy.

        To each his own I guess.

        Now let's just get a bigger, torquier V-8 in there .....

      That looks like a nice move away from the current design themes.
      I want to see this thing in full.
