At launch in 2010, the Audi A7 kicked off the 4-door coupe craze & challenged design norms. It also marked Audi's entrance in a new segment of the market, where it was to battle competitors like the BMW 5 Series GT & the Porsche Panamera.
The 2020 Audi A7 continues this legacy. The surfacing is sharper, as is the muscular definition, & this second-generation version comes brimming with fancy tech borrowed from the A8 luxury saloon.
If you want all of the opulence of an Audi A6 or E-Class coupe but with more distinctive styling, the A7 in its Sportback body style could be worth considering. It’s a low-slung rakish 4-door coupe that also rivals the BMW 6 Series GT & Mercedes-Benz CLS, offering a combination of generous for passengers & luggage & a wealth of high-tech equipment.
The A7 is a beautifully made, very comfortable high speed cruiser. Its aforementioned competitors from BMW & Mercedes-Benz are interesting & good cars but the A7 has that edge. It's much sportier & far better looking than the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, which beats the Audi for boot space, though not by very much.
“The A7 Sportback celebrates sporty elegance and, as an ambassador of a new style, is a car belonging to the automobile avant-garde. Sharp lines & its coupé silhouette are expressions of powerful emotionality.”
