Audi A7 Review

Expert Review by Maxabout

Exterior

Compared to most cars in its sector, the design of Audi A7 really stands out. It has a distinctive silhouette that makes it rise up even comparing to models that some would call competitors or substitutes, like the Porsche Panamera or Mercedes-Benz CLS. The A7 is a mixture of free-flowing, smooth sheet metal with moulded details to give it a somewhat stronger look than most of Audi's stream-line sedans. Compared to other sedans it is definitely more elegant. Compared to other European twists from the 1970s to 80s like the Citroen CX or the Rover SD1, A7 fits in better.

The A7's appearance has been the subject of intense debate among car enthusiasts but many see it as striking and attractive, just extraordinary enough to bring a touch of eccentricity. Certainly, looking from the tail of the A7, one may think that it is a bulbous car, but looking at it as a whole would make anyone appreciate its design, as it feels consistent yet refreshingly unlike any other with its forceful front end design that is the trademark of most of Audi cars today. Its nicely shaped side sheet metal and an exceptional fastback-coupe tail will always give it a wow on the road.

Interior

The brilliant design of Audi A7 does not stop there. A7 is one of the proofs of Audi’s exceptional interior design, as it includes the finest synchronized materials and frills on the luxury-car market. With a look that is quite comparable to the A8 flagship sedan, A7 is the slimmed down version to fit a sportier look and feel. The slickly styled, straight-across device panel helps maximize inner space, while two-tone soft-touch surfaces and matte-metallic finishes, along with some wood grains and dash contours, altogether make this interior feel extra special.

The MMI touch controller is the centrepiece of the instrument panel that comes with a pop-up navigation screen, and a low center console that is almost the same as its brother, the bigger A8, but the interface itself is even more precise and easy to use. Although a lot of people say that A7 is similar to its brother A8 through its looks, A7 has more adequate luxury inside as well as heaps of high-tech treats. It includes standard and advanced features like a heads-up display, a 1300 watt Bang & Olufson audio system, a WLAN hotspot, an advanced MMI operating system and Audi’s new touch-pad feature that allows the driver or passengers to input navigation info by scribbling letters with his or her hand.

Engine

In India Audi A6 comes with only one engine option: 3.0 TDi Diesel. It generates maximum power of 245 bhp with maximum torque of 500 nm. The engine is V6 diesel with common rail injection system and exhaust gas turbocharging.

Variants

Audi A7 is available in only one variant: 3.0 TDi.

Safety Features

Audi A7 comes with safety features just like other Audi cars in this segment. It has ABS brakes that automatically checks and detects when a tire has stopped turning when extreme pressure is applied on the brakes. It will automatically modulate the brake pressure to give the tire the chance to rotate. This gives the driver the chance to turn the vehicle even while braking. Stability control has also been put into A7 to automatically sense when the vehicle’s handling parameters have been exceeded. It cuts engine power and applies selected brakes to help prevent the driver from trailing control of the car. Front-impact airbags have been installed for added safety for the driver and passengers to keep their heads protected from possible injuries during a frontal crash.

Side impact airbags have been added at the front seats to protect the upper body in case of a side impact crash. Overhead airbags have been placed for added head protection in the event of a side crash or a rollover. Knee airbags have also been placed to help protect the passengers’ limbs from serious damages in the event of severe accidents. Aside from airbags, pretensioners or seat-belt pretensioners have been installed to automatically tighten the seat-belts to keep the occupants in their ideal seating position during a car crash. Anti-whiplash head restraints have been put to actively react to back collision forces and cradle the occupants head to help reduce the possibility of a whiplash injury. Intruders are also prevented from getting into the vehicle as it has a security system. This means that the vehicle is equipped with a system that anticipates or detects unwanted vehicle intrusion. It comes with an ignition disable device, a feature that will prevent the machine from starting if the exact original manufacturer key is not used.

Shades

Audi A7 comes in a variety of colors so there is a wide range of standard and metallic or pearl effect paint colors to suit different tastes. Palace Blue, Velvet Purple and Morning Dew are the colors to choose from so buyers can think of what they like most. Audi also offers an exclusive service for those who are extremely passionate about colors. They can custom-mix paint colors and match it to give any Audi A7 that distinct look.

Verdict

Overall, Audi A7 is a good choice for car lovers who are looking for a spacious yet not-so-bulky car that can give unremarkable speed. It also has a lighter steering heft compared to Mercedes so drivers can experience a smoother driving experience for a lesser price.
