This year, Audi's signature LED headlights have been updated for the A7 lineup. It's one of few changes that do nothing to alter the A7's stunning shape.
The interior of the A7 is trimmed well and includes some of the best coordinated materials we've found on a sedan, even if the inside doesn't match the stunning exterior. The interior look is mostly cribbed from the A8 flagship sedan, but slimmed down to fit and sitting lower to accommodate the A7's lower roofline and steeper rake. The smooth and straightforward instrument panel makes the most of interior space, and matte-mettalic finishes and two-tone soft-touch surfaces—along with some elegant dash contours, flowing doors and woodgrains—make the interior of the A7 feel special every time we sit inside.
The A7 is Audi's most daring design statement, a confluence of curves. The A7 has rivals—the handsome Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, and the controversial Porsche Panamera—but the A7's surfacing and details leave it in a class of one. It's a beautiful car, with a hint of sensibility. We're hard-pressed to find fault in the outline, perhaps the A7 is a little thick at the tail? What modern car could be described differently?
The standard setup in the A7 is a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 rated at 310 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. It's a better application than its muted predecessors, with lots of low-end torque that helps it shuffle the A7 up to 60 mph in about 5.4 seconds. It also returns up to 28 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. It's the kind of flexible engine that helps make the A7 look better—if that's possible.
The A7 is reasonably spacious, thanks to its wide layout. However, rear headroom isn't always a strong suit here, especially if you opt for its available panoramic sunroof.
Hydraulic dampers in the A7's suspension and subframe help soak up road vibrations and minor vibrations from the engine, which pays dividends in keeping the cabin quiet. An integrated rear spoiler extends at 80 mph for better downforce and retracts at 50 mph for a slipperier shape to cut a smaller hole in the air. Frameless doors keep the profile pure, usually the provenance of coupes and convertibles, but the A7's complex sealing system keeps the side view intact and the noise out of the cabin. On turbodiesel models and mega-powerful S cars there is some road noise that seeps in, compared to the supercharged V-6.
