Audi A7

C7 Series II

1 Mar 2015

LOWER base pricing and sharper styling cues are the hallmarks of Audi’s revised A7 Sportback range, with the Series II kicking off with the 160kW/500NM 3.0 TDI quattro with a V6 diesel.

Plus, the old 3.0 TFSI quattro V6 petrol version was dropped altogether, leaving the high-performance S7 and blistering RS7 flagship as the sole non-diesel A7 Sportback choices.

As with the C7-generation A6 Series II on which it is derived from, the A7 Sportback sports a fresh face thanks to a wider single-frame grille, flatter headlights with Matrix LEDs, a redesigned lower splitter underneath the revised bumper, larger air intake and extra chrome trimming, while the rear end’s tail-lights, contrasting diffuser and trapezoidal tailpipes are also new.

The dashboard architecture remains essentially the same, except for a new ‘Driver Information System’ display between the main cluster dials, showing – among other things – satellite navigation data. As with the A6, it uses a Nvidia Tegra 30 quad-core processor.

Other updates include improved night-vision assistant and autonomous braking systems.
