2019 Audi A7 – Excellent Five-door coupe


2019 Audi A7 – Excellent Five-door coupe. The A7 doesn’t just look lower, its roof is an inch and a half lower than that of the A6. It looks even lower still because of a design trick applied to the arching roofline – Audi designers stamped a crease into the edge of the roof that tricks the eye into seeing that slightly lower part as the corner of the roof, visually lowering the already low car. The A7’s tail, which sits about an inch and a half higher than the outgoing A7, includes an active spoiler that pops up for aerodynamic stability at speeds above 75 mph.

This lowered roofline, and correspondingly reduced headroom, has only a negligible impact on comfort, as your six-foot correspondent had ample headroom in the front and rear seats of the A7. It also has no negative impact on cargo space – quite the contrary, actually. The A7 offers up 24.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the back seats up, an 11.2-cube improvement over the A6. Combine that with the wide aperture of the rear hatch, and the A7 is not only more stylish, but more versatile, too.

Hiding the spoiler when it is not in use is good (the old axiom is that the only thing spoilers spoil is cars’ styling), but having a moveable panel means more shut lines. Russo minimized this by wrapping the spoiler over the rear of the car so the rear-most shut line is under the rear lip of the hatch where it is out of view.

Similarly, the bottom shut line for the fuel filler door is nestled up to the flattened part of the fender arch, where it is less obvious than on the vertical portion of the fender.

Stylists paid similar attention to detail inside the A7, with the new MMI touch response replacing the old MMI control knob. Haptic and acoustic feedback make this touchscreen a nearly ideal solution to using technology while driving.

The Audi Virtual Cockpit’s 12.3-inch, high-resolution display is a gorgeous conduit of information that, in combination with the full-color head-up display, renders other displays in the cabin largely superfluous.

Unfortunately, Audi’s interior color palette is as monochromatic as the exterior paint options, with black, gray, and brown being the dominant hues. There is a white cabin available with certain paint colors, but no vibrant colors like we’re seeing in modern Volvo and Lincoln models. Even with the standard sunroof, the interior can feel dark and drab with Audi’s available colors.

The A7 employs the very same powertrain as its A6 kin: a 335-horsepower, 369-lb-ft, turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that’s supplemented by a 48-volt automatic stop/start system and mated to a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission, which pushes power to all four wheels through Audi’s signature quattro system. The combination nets the A7 an A6-matching, manufacturer-estimated 0 to 60 MPH time of 5.2 seconds and electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. EPA fuel economy is also identical to that of the A6, with the A7 returning 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined.

Audi charges a premium for the A7’s sleek style, with a $68,000 base price that is nearly $10,000 higher than that of the A6. Loaded with the Prestige package, 18-way adjustable massaging contour seats, the driver assistance system, and 20-inch wheels, stickered at $85,240, including $995 destination.
