The Audi A7 was the bright spot in the Audi lineup, from the day it was launched it demonstrated the ultimate cool at Audi, and at that time there was a lot of cool in their lineup. So when Audi started to refresh their roster via evolution of design, the end result was less evolution and more more of the same, the end result was a timid lineup with some highlights. For example, there were no gasps or jaw drops when the current generation R8 was unveiled, more like offbeat clapping. As the time drew near for the A7 to be refreshed many were skeptical, would they botch it and opt for something coy? Or deliver something that pulls punches, luckily they delivered.
Just by looking at it, you can tell that Audi has managed to merge style with technology brilliantly, it looks the business hands down. Overall the outline of the A7 has been maintained, other than everything has been revised drastically, the front sports the latest family nose, and is the best version of it. The rear has the new light cluster theme introduced by the A8, and both front and back lights do graphics Night Rider would be proud of. All of this results in a very sleek and stylish car. This car intends on being a tech powerhouse and the interior highlights this, beautifully crafted with screens galore, the interior matches the exterior perfectly.
The A7 is available as a front wheel drive or Quattro, initial engine would be a 3.0 V6 TFSI with 340 hp and 500 nm of torque, sprinting the A7 to 100 in 5.3 seconds. So, the A7 is still the bright spot, and the RS7 will be even brighter.
