Overview

 The Audi A7 is a sports saloon from Audi meant to be a grand tourer. It looks stunning though.  The front end carries the Audi family design and is quite well proportioned. The LED daytime running lights make it look chic and the bright Xenon light comes handy while driving in poor visibility conditions or at night. Like most modern Audis, there is no moderation to the use of LED lights. You’ll find them in the rear end as well. This is because they offer brighter light during daytime, consume less energy, are long lasting and look really cool.

The side profile of the car can make even hardened auto journalists go weak in their knees. It resembles some of the iconic super cars of the 1970s. The long bonnet, sweeping roof-line and the sharply chopped off rear end make it look like a sporty coupé, until you notice that it has four doors. The car is based on the new A6 platform, with an overall length of 4,969 mm and width of 1,911 mm, but is just 1,420 mm tall owing to the alluring coupé-style roof-line. 
 
As you get inside the car, you get surrounded by opulence despite the seemingly simple design of the interior. There are hoards of instruments and buttons that are aesthetically laid out, easy to reach and simple to operate. The high central console gives the car a sporty, cockpit-like feeling and the material used in the cabin is, as is usual for Audi, stunning. The small touch pad on it is a great ‘touch’. There are over a dozen of aluminium and wood trim options that could be considered an industry benchmark.
Our top-of-the-line ‘S line’ featured the Bang & Olufsen music system, which needs no introduction. The compact tower-shaped speakers and the 6.5-inch infotainment screen slide out in a sleek motion. The screen also offers the Drive Select options and aids parking using the rear camera. Then you get the optional four-zone automatic air-conditioning, wherein the air distribution, temperature and blower speed can be adjusted individually for the front seat occupants. With the Quattro with sports differential driving the rear wheels, the A7 handles every bend as if on carving skis by ensuring that the individual rear wheels are able to receive different amount of drive torque. The handling is very good.
 
The ride quality is pretty good thanks to the Trapezoidal link, twin-tube, gas-filled shock-absorbers. It is not as agile as an A4 and drives like a big sedan. One can also select the preferred drive mode from Comfort, Dynamic, Auto and Individual. The Audi A7 is priced at Rs 66 lakhs ex-showroom. For a detailed analysis read below..

Interior

 As you get inside the car, you get surrounded by opulence despite the seemingly simple design of the interior. There are hoards of instruments and buttons that are aesthetically laid out, easy to reach and simple to operate. The high central console gives the car a sporty, cockpit-like feeling and the material used in the cabin is, as is usual for Audi, stunning. The small touch pad on it is a great ‘touch’. There are over a dozen of aluminium and wood trim options that could be considered an industry benchmark.

Our top-of-the-line ‘S line’ featured the Bang & Olufsen music system, which needs no introduction. The compact tower-shaped speakers and the 6.5-inch infotainment screen slide out in a sleek motion. The screen also offers the Drive Select options and aids parking using the rear camera. Then you get the optional four-zone automatic air-conditioning, wherein the air distribution, temperature and blower speed can be adjusted individually for the front seat occupants. There is enough legroom in the rear of this sportback, but the coupé-inspired drooping roof restricts the luxury of headroom, though it should not be too much of a bother for an Indian of average build. The boot is huge with 535 litres of storage space and, as in a notchback, the whole tailgate opens up like a giant’s yawn.

Exterior

 Long, wide and low and styled with smooth and clean lines akin to master strokes in a painting. The front end carries the Audi family design and is quite well proportioned. The LED daytime running lights make it look chic and the bright Xenon light comes handy while driving in poor visibility conditions or at night. Like most modern Audis, there is no moderation to the use of LED lights. You’ll find them in the rear end as well. This is because they offer brighter light during daytime, consume less energy, are long lasting and look really cool.

The car is based on the new A6 platform, with an overall length of 4,969 mm and width of 1,911 mm, but is just 1,420 mm tall owing to the alluring coupé-style roof-line. 

Mileage Running Cost

 It’s also got an energy recovery system that converts kinetic energy into electrical energy during phases when the car is braking. When the car accelerates again, the battery directs the temporarily stored energy back into the vehicle. This relieves the load on the alternator and thereby saves fuel. 

 

Comfort Suspension

 The ride quality is pretty good thanks to the Trapezoidal link, twin-tube, gas-filled shock-absorbers. It is not as agile as an A4 and drives like a big sedan. One can also select the preferred drive mode from Comfort, Dynamic, Auto and Individual. If the going gets too rough, the Comfort mode comes in handy. Having said that, I preferred the Dynamic mode, which made the steering more engaging and the ride sharper. The handling and specifically the steering feel is the highlight of this Audi. The sportback goes exactly where you point it and the 18-inch 255/45 wheels make sure they do not slacken the grip.

 

Engine Performance

 The sportback is powered by a 2,967-cc V6 diesel motor that can spin out 245 PS of power and a fantastic 500 Nm of torque without breaking into a sweat. There are two aspects that make this motor entertaining – the optimum flowing in between 1,400-3,250 rpm and the seven-speed S-tronic transmission with Audi’s dual clutch technology. This transmission makes a gear change possible in just 0.2 of a second without interrupting the power flow and our kick-down figures uphold its efficiency. Moreover, it reduces fuel consumption compared to a traditional auto-box. You can even shift into the manual mode if you prefer to shift gears yourself.

Braking Safety

 With the Quattro with sports differential driving the rear wheels, the A7 handles every bend as if on carving skis by ensuring that the individual rear wheels are able to receive different amount of drive torque. The handling is very good.
