Audi is always major on design attention to detail, more than driving sharpness some would say! So the A7 ought to be Audi’s absolute comfort zone. And in many ways, this ireally is.
A great deal of A7 Mk2 is shared with the latest Audi A8 – the chassis, the interior technology, and the mild-hybrid 48-volt drivetrains. While you’re not posted about town via an electric motor, what the system can do is store regenerative braking energy as electricity and totally switch off the engine when you’re coasting, between 34mph and 99mph.
So, for downhill stretches of motorway, the engine is off entirely. Transmission de-clutched, and away you go. The stop-start system also cuts in long before you’re actually, er, stopped. At 13mph, if the computer senses you’re heading for traffic, it’ll turn off whichever of the turbocharged engines you’ve selected for your A7.
The diesel option right now is the 3.0 TDI or ‘A7 50 TDI’, as Audi would have it. It has five seats. The 535-litre boot can swell to encompass 1,390 litres with the rear seats folded (not quite flat). Audi’s quite proud of the fact you can now carry two loaded golf bags and a spare wheel at the same time.
A longer cabin means this A7 is a tad more spacious, but your passengers won’t notice the legroom because they’ll be far too busy fawning over the proliferation of touchscreens that control the A7’s endless entertainment, safety, information and comfort jobs. Why use knobs and buttons to adjust the heater when a haptic feedback screen can do the job? Why indeed, says Audi…
One thing you’ll be sure of on all A7s is its sexiest signature detail:
that spectacular rear LED strip housing 13 vertical elements that illuminates, switches off and indicates in a variety of animated flourishes. Worth the entrance fee alone 🙂
