Audi A7 Sportback almost corresponds to the study
U nd these pictures show that the production version of the Audi A7 Sportback will be launched on the market almost unchanged compared to the study. The front apron of the study was adapted to the currently prevailing design, the side line and the rear were only marginally changed.
And inside, too, the Audi designers were almost slavishly sticking to the design of the study. In the new Audi A7 Sportback, the driver grips a four-spoke instead of a three-spoke steering wheel. The strongly curved instrument cover also covers the deep round instruments with chrome rings. Between the tachometer on the left and the speedometer on the right, Audi has placed a screen for further information.
Top engines are two V6s in the new Audi A7
In contrast to the Detroit study However, the cockpit in the new Audi A7 Sportback is clearly delimited towards the center, the navigation screen requires significantly more floor space and the wide ventilation slots underneath have also given way to conventional ventilation grilles. If the line of the instrument panel remains largely unchanged, the center console will also have a slightly different styling.
On the engine side, the new Audi A7 will be launched with V6 engines. These include a 3.0-liter petrol engine with around 300 hp and the three-liter turbodiesel with 245 hp known from the Audi Q7.
The Audi A7 Sportback had already been launched some time ago before the current 'unveiling' - shown in 'formation flight' with its 'bigger' brother Audi A8. And even then it could be seen that the two models are quite similar in the area of the front apron.
Audi S7 shows retractable rear spoiler
In addition, the shot down hot version of the Audi A7 Sportback, the Audi S7. The eye-catchers of the Audi S7 are, in addition to the slightly modified front and rear aprons and the special light metal rims, the extendable rear spoiler, which gives the S7 a little more downforce. This rear spoiler is strongly reminiscent of the system from the Porsche Panamera, in whose area and in the area of the Mercedes CLS and Aston Martin Rapide the A7 Sportback wants to poach.
4.2-liter V8 for the top model
In addition to an enlarged braking system and double-flow exhaust pipes on the right and left, the S7 features a 4.2-liter V8, which provides 420 hp in the R8. An even hotter version of the Audi A7 will be the RS7who can look forward to the ten-cylinder with 580 hp.
The almost five-meter-long Audi sedan has an elongated bonnet and a flat windshield. The wheelbase of the A7 is just as big as the upcoming A6 and promises plenty of legroom for the rear passengers.

While the upper window line is stronger tends towards the tapering rear side windows, the roof runs much flatter towards the rear with its approximately 500-liter luggage compartment. There, the large, also flat tailgate is presented with an attached spoiler. Another eye-catcher on the Audi A7 Sportback: the frameless side windows and the narrow third brake light that extends over almost the entire width of the rear window.
