The Audi A7 Sportback is an executive car/mid-size luxury car produced by Audi. Audi assigns the A7 to that growing class called “four-door coupes”, which has made 'coupe' a word that's becoming almost as elastic. The styling element that sets apart the A7 and others of this vehicle type, the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the BMW 6-series Gran Coupe, is a roofline that slopes away aft of the B-pillar, culminating in a fast backlight. Its a design element common to most contemporary coupes, thus apparently justifying the stretch to include cars with four doors.
The large five-door model is an Audi in top form. Its low, dynamic roof line and the sharp cut-off at the rear, lend it the character of a coupe. Among the exterior modifications, the changes to the Singleframe grille, bumpers, exhaust tailpipes and headlights are particularly eye-catching. LED technology is standard, Matrix LED headlights, which light the road optimally without causing glare to other road users, are available as an option. Dynamic turn signals complete the image. Much of the body of the Audi A7 Sportback consists of aluminium and high-tech steel grades. It is unusually lightweight and designed for maximum acoustic comfort. The cargo space under the long, power trunk lid has a base capacity of 535 liters and when the rear seats are folded down it increases to 1,390 liters. Every detail of the elegant interior with its sophisticated materials documents the care with which Audi builds their cars. The front seats can be equipped with optional ventilation and massage functions. The MMI user control system comes standard, and a head-up display is available as an option.
Its a comfortable car. Its luxurious, it does everything that is asked of it, but it doesn't set a new benchmark for dynamics or comfort. BMW's are hardcore driver's cars, whereas Mercedes vehicles are very neutral, but the A7 typical an Audi, sits on the fence. Its quick on the straight, but if your doing an 180Km and brake in a hurry, the car gets a nerve break. At 500Nm, the 3 litre V6 diesel has lots of torque and 245hp is good enough, but despite the acceleration and the tug at the back that you get when you floor the throttle, it sounds muffled. Like all Audi's, you can set the A7 to Comfort or Dynamic and even Custom set give in the suspension, throttle response, gearing and steering.
Audi can install the optional top system navigation, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch, which already uses the second generation modular infotainment platform. The ideal complement is the Audi connect hardware module, which provides Internet access and brings services on-board such as online media streaming and map updating. The range of audio modules extends up to the Bang and Olufsen Advanced Sound System, which delivers over 1,200 watts via the 15 speakers. State-of-the-art technology also comes in the form of the assistance system, including adaptive cruise control with stop and go function, the further improved night vision assistant and the Audi pre sense safety system. Audi assist and Audi active lane assist work closely together to make lane changes even safer.
Overall the Audi A7 Sportback is a lavish-feeling executive hatchback that is also economical, well made and equipped. If your looking for a car that your willing to keep for the long run, then this is a good choice. Now the price is something that makes the vehicle more better, it is priced at ₹65Lakhs, which is comparatively lesser than its competing models.
Intended to be called a 'Sportback' but mistook for a 'Sedan' when seen on the road.
