The Audi A6 remains a solidly luxurious choice in the deeply competitive executive sedan segment, duking it out with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Lexus GS, among others. Having been on sale since 2011, though, it's starting to become just a tiny bit stale. Cue the refresh.

Expected to make its debut in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the long-roof Avant/Allroad variant shown here gives us our first glimpse at some of the tweaks Audi has in store for its A6 range as a whole.

In general, this is pretty standard refresh stuff - new headlights that retain the same general shape as the current car but add a new DRL pattern, while there are also some subtle tweaks to the front fascia. The rear taillights have also been freshened (although as only the A6 sedan is sold in the US, it's likely the taillights we see will be different), and some minor changes have been made to the rear bumper. According to our spies, the cabin and MMI infotainment system could see some tweaks, while the oily bits under the hood could be in for for some minor changes as well.

Take a look up top for our full gallery of wintry images of the refreshed A6.

      Why does Audi put camo on new cars bodywork, only thing that ever changes are the headlight and taillight shapes.

      Wish we got that wagon here.

      Please bring the wagon back. There has to be a way for them to make it economical. Maybe sold orders only. My 2008 A6 Avant won't last forever.

      Shouldn't an all new A4 be coming soon? I wanted to get the A3 but its pretty disappointing in some ways.

        The rumor is that the A4 and Q7 have been delayed a couple of months for styling changes.
