Audi A7

Audi A7 available in 1 variant

With the practicality of a saloon and the dynamics of a coupe, the Audi A7 is positioned in a special segment where it is referred to as a ‘Sportback’. Its steeply raked rear window, integrated boot lid and the frameless doors give it a unique form. Based on VW group’s MLB platform, the car was first unveiled at Detroit Motor Show, 2009. The concept vehicle had a 3.0 litre V6 TDI engine with 225 PS power and 550 Nm of torque. This was coupled with 7 speed tiptronic transmission and had a Quattro permanent AWD set-up.
The actual model went on sale in 2010 and was released before the conventional A6 sedan. The early versions of A7 include 2.8 FSI, 3.0 TFSI Quattro and 3.0 TDI Quattro. India received the A7 Sportback with the 3 litre diesel engine in 2011. A petrol powered 3.0 TFSI Quattro was also offered. In 2014, RS7 Sportback, a new sport variant of A7 was launched. However this belongs to a very different category and competes with Mercedes’ AMG and BMW’s M models. 
Touted as a five door coupe, the A7 3.0 TDI and 3.0 TFSI are quick to catch attention with their elegant looks. This car does look like a coupe but with a length of 4969 mm it is longer than A6 sedan. For records, the A7 is also 37mm wider than its sibling A6. But it does share the Audi MLB platform with A6, A8 and also the A4. Slit eyed headlamps and the hexagonal grille with horizontal slats give that distinct Audi look. There is a low brooding stance. On the sides the way the roofline ascends and descends is eye catching. The style in which the tail cuts off to give it a Mustang like fastback rear is also admirable. Tail lamps are beautifully detailed. The flip out rear wing gives even more charm to the car. 
The 3.0 litre V6 diesel engine in both the cars is longitudinally mounted and this is a Quattro so the power is transmitted to all four wheels. Audi’s 2967 cc diesel engine has been tuned for the A7 and it now comes with higher injection pressures, new camshaft profiles and revised turbo. As in other all wheel drive vehicles for Audi, 60% of the power is transmitted to the rear axle. Suspension comprises double wishbones up front and multi-link setup for the rear. Adaptive air suspension works for damping. To improve the efficiency and performance of this four door coupe, light weight materials have been used. The front suspension struts are aluminium based and so the A7 weighs just 1770 kg. For a car of its size, this is fairly impressive. 
Audi A7 is a sports coupe and super luxury sedan rolled into one. Pegged between the A6 and the A8, this ‘Sportback’ is designed to offer the best of luxury in its cabin. There is a sense of drama in which the centre MMI screen flips out to stand behind the AC vents. The B & O tweeters also pop out stylishly. The three spoke steering wheel feels chunky and touches of silver on the gear selector stalk, door panels and dashboard add to the neat look. Wooden inlays on dash and centre console exude elegance. 
This Audi coupe’s standard kit comprises 2 zone automatic climate control, fuel saving start-stop system, the multi media interface on high resolution colour screen, and a parking aid system with reverse camera. Touch pad control for the MMI is an option. While the standard, upholstered seats are quite comfy at both front and rear, you can go for ventilated ones at an added cost. Front seats are electrically adjustable and driver’s seat has memory function. The only negative is that you sit somewhat low down at the rear and ingress is not simple. Also because of the swooping roofline, the back support has not been angled very well. Taller people will not be very happy with under thigh support, although knee room is adequate. 
The practical quotient of this car is enhanced by a voluminous 535 litre boot. Cup holders and door pockets are big enough for your bottles and knick-knacks. 
Six airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounting for outer rear seats, head restraints and three point inertia reel seat belts are some of the in-cabin safety elements. ABS, traction control ASR, electronic differential lock, ESP, Warning triangle and side impact protection are other parts make the car more secure on road. Audi Pre Sense basic is a standard attribute. Night vision heads up display comes as an optional upgrade. Technology rich anti theft features include remote central locking, alarm and engine immobiliser. 
There is an array of pleasing body colours that include Metallic - Glacier White, Havanna Black, Moonlight Blue; Pearl Effect – Garnet Red, Impala Beige, Daytona Grey; Solid – Ibis White and Brilliant Black. Like all other Audis, the A7 can be customised with alloy wheel size & design, seat upholstery and technical add-ons.  
Audi A7 is credited with several accolades. Esquire magazine recognised it as the 2011 Esquire Car of the Year. It was the Best of the Best and Car for 2012 as per AutoWeek magazine. This Sportback won the title of International Car of the Year in 2012 in ICOTY Awards.


Audi A7 3.0 TDI Quattro

With its fascinating looks, Audi A7 does draw attention and it is a saloon that is desirable on other fronts too. Its effortless performance, plush interiors and glorious gadgetry make it one of the most lovable premium luxury cars in India.
