The new 2019 Audi A6 has elevated the art of parking to a new level. While the 2019 Audi A6 utilizes several current high-tech sensors and outstanding display images, it takes it a step further with a three-dimensional drag and position image. It uses the (now popular) “bird’s eye” 360-degree view system for top-down positioning, but it has another trick which has never been seen before.

It’s akin to virtual-reality meets AutoCAD (computer-aided design).

Basically, the “Virtual 3D Top View System” uses cameras, uniquely positioned all over the vehicle, to give the driver real time images of their surroundings. It’s like science-fiction witchcraft, because it figures out how to make images away from the vehicle, appear to be part of the display.

You have to see this video to believe it.

Like most Audis, the exterior is subtly updated, but this is an all-new vehicle with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. The 3.0-liter, twin-scroll, turbocharged V6 (along with the mild hybrid system) makes 335 horsepower and 369 lbs-feet of torque. It’s capable of a 0 to 60 mph run in 5.1 seconds, according to Audi.

In this video, TFL’s boss-man Roman Mica heads to Napa, California to sample fine wines and the 2019 Audi A6. He gets a great tutorial on how this system works!
