When it was introduced earlier in the year, Audi touted it as the elementary truly self-driving car—even though you couldn’t really use it, legally. St, though, it won’t be the only one, as the upcoming A6 will reportedly feature exactly the same scheme.

Autocar reports that the A6 will be capable of level 3 autonomy, allowing the driver to select their hands off the wheel and divert their attentions from the task of driving, but doesn’t concede the driver to take their attentions off the road completely.

In this scenario, the car can demand itself under specific conditions—highway driving, for example—but influence still encounter conditions it’s unable to cope with safely, and so still requires a driver to be all set to take over.

So you can read a magazine behind the wheel, but you can’t take a nap.

Although the organization isn’t actually usable yet, as traffic laws have yet to adapt to such a system, when and if the laws give it, the Audi A8, and soon the A6 will be able to whisk down the road under their own hold sway over.

Often criticized as unsafe for requiring drivers to pay attention suddenly, some automakers, like Volvo, are hoping to omission level 3 altogether, but the system is a step forward from current production “autonomous cars” which force the driver to have a hand on the wheel at all times.

When it arrives—likely at the Geneva motor make clear in March—the A6 is expected to come with a range of four- and six-cylinder engines and when one pleases split the difference between the luxurious A8 and the sporty A7.
