The Audi A7 is a luxury 5-door Sportback with a dynamic edge. It combines the attributes of a premium luxury saloon with the stylish lines of a coupe, while also offering an engaging driving experience. The A7 has an answer for just about any motoring need. Comfortable, spacious and quick, making this Audi a great leasing choice for busy families, couples and solo drivers alike.
The Audi A7 offers above average space both inside and in the boot. The frameless doors look great and sliding into the leather-clad seats reveals plenty of head- and legroom, even for adults. The centre-rear seat is slightly narrower than the rest and not as padded thanks to an integrated armrest, making it the short straw choice on longer trips.
The hatchback-style opening makes accessing the cavernous boot easier than in rivals like the Mercedes-Benz CLS, while the cargo space inside is actually slightly more than you get in the Audi A6 saloon. The rear seats fold down to provide 1390 litres of capacity – more than you get in the CLS but less than the BMW 6 Series GT offers. The plug-in hybrid Audi A7 gives up some boot space, thanks to the battery pack located beneath the boot floor.
There are a range of diesels, petrols and a plug-in hybrid model to pick from. All the conventional engines are equipped with a mild-hybrid system that helps reduce fuel consumption. You will want to lease the plug-in hybrid Audi A7 for the most economical ownership experience, as it offers up to 235.4mpg and an all-electric range of 42 miles. You need to plug it in very regularly to hope to achieve the former figure, however.
The rest of the range offers between 204- and 340hp, with consumption figures spanning from 32.5- to 50.4mpg. If speed is your thing, then the 600hp RS7 manages slightly more than 20mpg in mixed driving conditions. The 344hp diesel-powered S7 is still rapid and offers almost 40mpg, making it a great all-rounder.

From the base Sport right up to the fully loaded Competition Vorsprung, no Audi A7 comes poorly equipped. S line and Black Edition trims add visual sportiness while adaptive suspension and an upgraded audio system is part of the comprehensive Competition trim.

As is the trend with many cars nowadays, the cockpit in the Audi A7 wouldn’t look out of place in a science-fiction movie. The driver’s digital display is massive and twin touchscreens are stacked on top of each other in the centre console. The graphics are crisp and the controls are intuitive to use. The few buttons and switches that remain feel expensive to the touch, as does the rest of the cabin. Soft-touch plastics, leather and silver trim accents give every model a very luxurious feel.
The low driving position suits the nature of the A7 and the view out is good, even through the steeply raked rear windscreen. The controls are light and responsive, making this big Audi enjoyable to drive out on the open road. In the tighter confines of city streets, you may want to use the comprehensive driver aids when attempting tight parking manoeuvres.
The A7 errs on the side of sportiness, but this is more of a luxurious cruiser than a car you’ll zip around corners in. Motorway journeys are completed in near-silence and sumptuous comfort. All Audi A7s are quick but the 600hp RS7 takes things to another level entirely, providing ballistic acceleration in any situation. The 0-62mph sprint takes a sports-car-humbling 3.6 seconds.
The midrange petrol and diesel offerings will be plenty for most, as will the plug-in hybrid variant which also offers all-electric running for up to 42 miles.
The A7 is available in 5-door Sportback form, which means a 4-door coupe-styled body with a hatchback rear opening.
Carbon Black (RS7 only)
