The all-new Audi A7 Sportback.
Now at centres!
The all-new A7 Sportback, will set the standard in its class with its sporty exterior design, futuristic lounge-like interior and comprehensive connectivity with prices starting at £54,940 on the road (OTR)
The exterior continues the same new design style as that used in the new A8. Large surfaces, sharp edges and taut lines make the A7 look expressive and dynamic from all angles. The Singleframe front grille is wider and lower than the A8 giving the A7 a sporty look.
The rear lights are made up of 13 vertical segments alongside a flat light strip – a design feature common to all of Audi’s top models.
Customers can choose from 15 exterior paint colours (including eight new colours). The S line will feature modifications to the front grille, air inlets, sills and front and rear diffusers, all trimmed in gloss black.
The inside of the A7 is designed to look and feel like a futuristic lounge. Horizontal lines and the sleek instrument panel give the car a spacious feel, while the driver-facing centre console again nods to the Grand Tourer character.
The upper display is framed in a graphite-grey aluminium clasp which, when combined with the black panel optics, makes the screen almost disappear into the dashboard. The display’s user interface appears as soon as the car is opened and, in keeping with the interior design, the look is succinct.
The A7 Sportback has two large, high-resolution MMI touch displays which replace the rotary push button and conventional controls that previous models have. The driver can control the infotainment system from the 10.1-inch upper display, while the 8.6-inch lower screen is used for climate control, comfort functions and text input.
The driver can activate the Audi AI remote parking pilot and the Audi AI remote garage pilot with the AI button. The A7 Sportback is then autonomously driven into and out of a parking space or garage. This function will be launched later in 2018.
The driver can get out of the car before pressing the AI button on the myAudi app on their smartphone. To monitor the manoeuvre, the driver presses and holds the Audi AI button the entire time. Depending on the equipment level, there can be as many as five radar sensors, five cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors and a laser scanner monitoring the area around the car while it parks.
