New: Audi A7

The Audi equivalent of a Mercedes-Benz CLS, the new A7 is a premium coupe that offers limo-like luxury with distinct styling. This second-generation vehicle is more premium than ever before with larger, more lavish interior that looks and feels great. The newer model is 5mm shorter than the previous, and stands at 4969mm long. The wheelbase has been extended by 12mm, to 2926mm. The extra space, refined performance and interior quality all impress – here’s a closer look at the new Audi A7.

  • Currently only one engine available: 335bhp 3.0 litre V6 petrol, 55TFSI.
  • A 282bhp 3.0 litre V6 diesel engine, called 50TDI will be introduced at a later date.
  • All of the A7 engines feature 48V mild hybrid technology – this will allow emission-free coasting, energy recuperation when braking, more responsive performance, as well as a smarter start-stop system.
  • This hybrid technology works well on both the petrol and diesel engines – allowing seamless decoupling and coasting for extended periods between 34mph and 99mph. Energy is taken and stored when braking has no effect on the brake pedal.
  • The Audi A7 is not a sports car but works with a combination of standard quattro 4WD and precise steering – this helps with low-speed manoeuvrability and high-speed stability.
  • Great interior – the plastics, chrome accents, slick switches and leather surfaces all work to give off a clean, luxurious look (and feel).
  • The driver’s seat works electronically with 4-way lumbar adjustment as standard.
  • Lots of steering wheel adjustment – finding a comfortable driving position is very easy.
  • Forward view is good and bright LED lights are included as standard.
  • The rear view is not quite as good, due to the Audi A7s sloping roofline.
  • Front and rear parking sensors are standard though, which makes the view better.
  • There is fantastic space in both the front and rear.
  • Boot offers 535 litres of space, which is bigger than its main rival, the Mercedes-Benz CLS.
  • Both driver and passenger get a door, another cubby that will easily take a phone, wallet and keys beneath the central armrest.
  • 2 cup holders behind the gear lever.
  • Offers 2 touchscreens – top measures 10.1inch and deals with radio, sat-nav and smartphone mirroring – the bottom is 8.6inch and deals with climate control.
  • Both touchscreens look great and have razor sharp graphics.
  • Audis Virtual Cockpit digital dials are standard on the Audi A7 – these are easy to read whilst driving and you can customise what you want to see.
  • Rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, automatic emergency braking, cruise control, electric leather seats, sat-nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth capabilities, Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring, as well as a powered tailgate.
