Car reviews - Audi - A7 - Sportback 55 TFSI
Audi’s all-new A7 Sportback delivers a rare sequel that is as good as the original
9 Nov 2018
REMEMBER the 1994 movie Speed? We certainly do, as the Keanu Reeves-led thriller became a cult classic upon its release. However, the same really can’t be said about its 1997 sequel, Speed 2: Cruise Control, which failed to recapture the magic of the original. Our point? Following up is hard.
This is Audi’s Speed moment: the second-generation A7 Sportback. When the original five-door coupe burst onto the Australian market in 2011, it won awards for its design and won fans the world over. Given the above precedent, Ingolstadt has the right to be nervous.
It’s no surprise then that Audi has tried to innovate again with the design of the new A7 Sportback; delivering an exterior and interior that challenge convention and establish the brand’s new design language. But is it a case of style over substance? We tested its 55 TFSI launch variant to find out.
