Audi Australia has recalled the 2019 model-year A6 and A7 over concerns the passenger airbag "does not meet the applicable standard".

The German luxury marque reports internal testing has shown the balance of trigger times between the belt pretensioner and passenger airbag is not up to specification.

"This may increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants on the passenger side of the vehicle during the deployment of the passenger airbag," Audi says in its recall notice.

A total of 150 units are affected across the MY19 A6 and A7 model lines, manufactured between June 2018 and July 2019 – the VIN list for these vehicles is available here.

Owners of the recalled models will be contacted by Audi Australia, and advised to arrange the inspection and repair of their vehicle with their preferred Audi dealer.
