is Not necessary to have traveled the world to know that the germans are very grid. If something works, do not change. The case is that many of us have complained that certain brands of cars, German, proposes a range of products that practically only differ by their dimensions, and not by their designs. Mercedes, BMW and Audi in the last few years we have become accustomed to this. Now it seems that Seat is also being added, having already seen the front of the new Ibiza, almost traced the Lion.
According to the latest statements of the chief designer of Audi, Marc Lichte, the front of the future Audi A8, A7 Sportback and A6 will be different among themselves, although the brand image will remain very present. With this, the firm from Ingolstadt intends that these three cars remain easily recognizable as Audi models, but also easier to distinguish a model from another without the need of having an eye supernatural.
Marc Litche chatted with our fellow French L’argus.fr even showing a few sketches of the future models Audi A8, A7 Sportback and A6 to be able to appreciate more the differences that we find in the front of these three high-end vehicles. Well, as we said, will not be fully different and there will be elements in common beyond the emblem of the four rings.
If we look at the main image, the grills and headlights are different. The Audi A8 is the one that is in the top left. grille Singleframe is the largest of the three and shows six horizontal louvres. This model is the most elegant of all and has an approach to the vehicle of representation. It is for this reason that their lines of the hood are also more fluid and that their headlights main have a few of the ways straight and serious.
To the right and half-height, we have the Audi A7 Sportback. The philosophy that continues to this car is that of a saloon coupe with the air of sportsmanship. The grill has a design more width and less height. Likewise, the nerves of the hood, which are also double rooms, are more marked to provide a more sporty aesthetic. The same thing happens with the forms something more torn headlights, with some distance to the grille and daytime running lights. If we look at the lower part of the bumper, also find details of the aerodynamic.
finally, in the bottom left area is the Audi A6. The saloon half of Ingolstadt also wants to convey elegance, but the undisputed leader in the mark for this aspect is the Audi A8. In this way, the grill has a more square, as if from a point intermediate between the previous two is involved. The design of the bumper, and the hood not looking for emotions, just this detail, you try to pass more unnoticed. headlights, as in the A7 Sportback, are something separate from the grill. Also the forms of lighting they provide differences that, as we see, in this case seem to have an inverted design from that of the A7.
These are just a few sketches. we’ll See if it really, when these three models to show their new generations, are easily distinguishable each other by the human eye or if, on the contrary, will be as similar as a Mercedes C Class and a Class E. The Audi A8 will be the first of the three in do appearance, debuting in September in the iaa.
