Dynamics during their many beautiful: a extraneous design
The extraneous pattern of a A7 Sportback is an countenance of a new pattern denunciation that Audi introduced with a voluntary investigate and done a prolongation entrance in a new Audi A8. With vast surfaces, pointy edges and taut, jaunty lines, a A7 signals dynamics and liberality from each perspective.

Up front, a Singleframe grille – wider and reduce than that of a Audi A8 – a slight headlights, a resolutely contoured atmosphere inlets and a prosaic front finish communicate during a peek a sportiness of a Gran Turismo. The headlights are accessible in 3 versions. With a core and tip apparatus lines, a light signature takes adult a theme of digitalization: 12 adjacent lighting segments distant by slight inserted spaces elicit associations with a binary digits 0 and 1. The tip chronicle is a HD Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light.

The Audi A7 Sportback is an jaunty sculpture with a prolonged engine hood, prolonged wheelbase and brief overhangs. Pronounced contours stress a wheels, that magnitude adult to 21 inches in diameter, and anxiety Audi’s quattro genes. These genes establish a proportions of a vehicle’s body. The conformation is tangible by a energetic roofline, that drops neatly toward a rear. Four sum delineate a sporty impression of a vast coupe: It is 4,969 millimeters (16.3 ft) long, has a wheelbase of 2,926 millimeters (9.6 ft) and is 1,908 millimeters (6.3 ft) wide, though stands usually 1,422 millimeters (4.7 ft) high.

As with a prior model, a back finish is slim like that of a yacht. The prolonged luggage cell lid terminates in a pronounced, winding mouth from that an integrated spoiler extends automatically during 120 km/h (74.6 mph). A prosaic light frame – a pattern underline common to all of Audi’s tip models – joins a back lights, whose tail lights are done adult of 13 straight segments. When a doors are unbarred and again when they are locked, fast-moving light animations play in a back lights and in a headlights, highlighting a vast coupe’s dynamics while station still. The on-going extraneous pattern of a new Audi A7 Sportback is mostly abandoned of chrome. The paint operation offers a choice of 15 colors, 8 of that are new. The discretionary S line extraneous package serve hones a look, with modifications to a radiator grille and a front atmosphere inlets, a sills and a front and back diffusers. They are embellished in shimmer black and some-more strongly sculpted.

Show automobile pattern comes to production: a interior
The interior fuses pattern and record in a singular way. The interior of a new Audi A7 Sportback dazzles with a unconventional loll atmosphere. Its reduced, purify pattern denunciation is formed in a one-of-a-kind change of tragedy and coolness. The plane lines and neat instrument row yield for a feeling of ethereal spaciousness. The core console is oriented toward a driver, underscoring a Gran Turismo’s sporty character. Four pivotal values impersonate a interior concept: progressiveness, sportiness, intuitiveness and sophistication. All colors, upholstery materials and inlays underscore a new aesthetic, from a bottom chronicle to a pattern selection, a S line competition package and a quite worldly Valcona leather. The discretionary contour ambient lighting package traces a contours and subtly highlights a space.

The 10.1-inch tip arrangement (in multiple with MMI navigation plus) is slanted toward a driver. With a black row optics and framed in a graphite gray aluminum clasp, it roughly disappears into a dashboard when switched off. The physique ancillary a grip is itself a geometric sculpture. The display’s user interface appears as shortly as a automobile is opened. In gripping with a interior design, a demeanour is reduced and succinct. All shade calm can be quick registered.

Control during your fingertips: MMI hold response control complement and online voice control
The new Audi A7 evenly continues a digitalization plan of a A8. The interior pattern melds seamlessly with Audi’s new MMI hold response doing concept. It replaces a rotary pushbutton and a required buttons and controls of a prior indication with dual large, high-resolution hold displays.

The motorist controls a infotainment complement from a tip display. Mounted on a uneven console of a core tunnel, a 8.6-inch reduce arrangement provides entrance to a meridian control system, comfort functions and content input. Drivers can rest their wrist on a involuntary transmission’s far-reaching selector push knob.

Audi offers an discretionary head-up arrangement that projects critical information onto a windshield. MMI navigation and also includes a Audi practical cockpit with a 12.3-inch display.

The MMI hold response doing judgment facilities haptic and acoustic feedback and is as discerning to use as a smartphone. Users hear and feel a click as acknowledgment when their finger triggers a function. With a judicious and prosaic menu structure, a complement allows quick entrance to a several automobile functions, and it can also be personalized interjection to configurable and mobile favorites buttons.

The discretionary voice control in a new A7 Sportback creates operation even some-more convenient. With MMI navigation plus, a healthy debate discourse complement processes questions and commands in dual ways – with information stored onboard and during a same time with minute believe from a cloud.

Fully connected for some-more preference and safety: infotainment and bond features
With a extensive connectivity, a Audi A7 is ideally versed for long-distance touring. It offers business some-more convenience, reserve and customization options. The Gran Turismo facilities a same infotainment and connectivity operation as a Audi A8. Up to 7 drivers can store their elite settings in particular user profiles. As many as 400 parameters can be personalized. The online services from Audi bond have been expanded. Additions embody a trade pointer and jeopardy information Car-to-X services, that implement a overflow comprehension of a Audi fleet.

The new A7 Sportback comes customary with a MMI radio; MMI navigation and MMI navigation and are accessible as options. There is a choice of 4 sound systems. The tip version, the Bang Olufsen Advanced Sound System, also delivers fascinating 3D sound to a back seats.

Intelligent and convenient: a Audi AI systems 
With a AI button, a motorist activates a Audi AI remote parking commander and a Audi AI remote garage pilot, that will be done accessible during some indicate in 2018. They autonomously scheme a A7 Sportback into and out of a parking space or garage. The motorist can get out of a automobile before rising a duty around a myAudi app on their smartphone. To guard a maneuver, a motorist presses and binds a Audi AI symbol a whole time. The executive motorist assistance controller (zFAS) merges a information from a worldly set of sensors to ceaselessly discriminate an picture of a surroundings. Depending on a apparatus level, there can be as many as 5 radar sensors, 5 cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors and a laser scanner.

Besides a Audi AI systems, a new A7 Sportback facilities a sum of 39 motorist assistance systems to make things easier for a driver. They are separate adult into 3 packages: a Audi AI parking package (gradual introduction commencement 2018), a City support package with a new channel assist, and a Tour support package. The latter includes such things as a potency assistant, that facilitates a pushing character gainful to shortening consumption, and a adaptive pushing partner (ADA), that supplements a adaptive journey control (ACC) with useful steering interventions to say a lane. All motorist assistance systems underline softened control mechanisms.

Handling and long-distance comfort: a chassis
The new A7 serve extends a singularity of sportiness and comfort. The discretionary dynamic-all-wheel steering, a new electronic framework module (ECP) – a executive controller for a framework – and a updated atmosphere cessation make it even some-more agile, nimble and comfortable. The A7 is so a ideal Gran Turismo: energetic and flexible on twisty nation roads, nonetheless gentle on prolonged highway stretches.

Many aspects of a front and back axles have been grown from scratch. The customary on-going steering, whose generally sporty ratio becomes even some-more approach a serve a steering round is turned, facilities a new judgment for complete highway feedback. Mounted behind vast wheels – adult to 21 inches and 255/35 – with softened rolling comfort are aluminum fixed-caliper brakes with discs adult to 400 millimeters (15.7 in) in diameter. Customers can name between 4 cessation setups: a required steel open suspension, a competition cessation that lowers float tallness by 10 millimeters (0.4 in), electronically tranquil damping and a self-leveling adaptive atmosphere suspension.

The tip chassis-related creation is dynamic-all-wheel steering. It combines direct, sporty steering response with unshakable stability, solution a dispute of aims between lively and comfort. The steering ratio varies as a duty of speed between 9.5:1 and 16.5:1 by means of active steering interventions during a front and back axle. At a front axle, aria call gearing is used to superimpose these in response to a driver’s steering input. At a back axle, a shaft expostulate turns a wheels by as most as 5 degrees. At low speed, they expostulate opposite to a front wheels to serve boost a lively of a vast coupe when parking or pushing in civic traffic, for example. This reduces a branch round during full close by 1.1 meters (3.6 ft). At 60 km/h (37.3 mph) and above, a back shaft steers in a same instruction to boost straight-line fortitude and promote line changes.

The discretionary competition differential improves handing even further. It actively distributes expostulate torque between a back wheels, complementing quattro all-wheel drive. Like dynamic-all-wheel steering, tranquil damping and a adaptive atmosphere suspension, a competition differential is integrated into a control duty of a electronic framework height (ECP). These systems are closely networked for limit precision. The motorist can use a Audi expostulate name complement to activate opposite float profiles featuring a some-more conspicuous disproportion between comfort and sportiness than in a prior model.

Broad-based electrification: amiable hybrid complement for larger comfort and efficiency
All engines used in a A7 Sportback come customary with a new amiable hybrid complement (MHEV) for larger comfort and efficiency. With a dual V6 engines, this uses a 48-volt primary electrical system. A belt alternator starter (BAS) works together with a lithium-ion battery and achieves a recuperation opening of adult to 12 kW when braking. At speeds between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 – 99.4 mph), a four-door coupe can seashore in freewheeling mode with a engine deactivated and afterwards restarted absolutely around a BAS.

The start-stop duty has been significantly stretched and now activates during 22 km/h (13.7 mph). In multiple with a customary front camera, a engine is restarted predictively while during a delay as shortly as automobile forward starts to move. In real-world driving, a MHEV record reduces fuel expenditure by adult to 0.7 liters per 100 kilometers.

The new Audi A7 Sportback will primarily launch with a 3.0 V6 TFSI. The sonorously understated V6 turbo produces 250 kW (340 hp) and 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft). The four-door coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and has a tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). In a NEDC, a bottom chronicle of a Audi A7 55 TFSI consumes 6.8 liters of fuel (34.6 US mpg), analogous to CO2 emissions of 154 grams (247.8 g/mi). The 3.0 TFSI is interconnected with a seven-speed S tronic. Its quattro drivetrain uses a fit ultra record that activates rear-wheel expostulate as needed. Additional six- and four-cylinder engines, both gasoline and diesel, will follow shortly after a start of production.

The physique concept: Coupé, Sedan and Avant in one
The A7 Sportback combines a best of all worlds and is a energetic all-around talent for business and recreation. It offers a pattern of a Coupé, a expanse of a Sedan and a variability of an Avant. The interior judgment of a A7 Sportback impresses with some-more space and some-more gentle seating – and that notwithstanding carrying a energetic roofline. Compared with a prior model, interior length has increasing 21 millimeters (0.8 in), ensuing in some-more back knee room. Rear passengers also suffer some-more conduct room. The loading breadth has also increasing compared with a prior indication and now measures 1,050 millimeters (3.4 ft).

Topping a operation of all-new seats are a multi-adjustable, customized contour front seats with movement and massage. The pattern with particular back seats (alternative: 2+1 bench) offers a copiousness of space and comfort. New high-tech options make life with a Audi A7 Sportback even some-more gentle and convenient. The atmosphere peculiarity package improves interior atmosphere peculiarity by means of fragrancing with pointed scents, an ionizer and an effective multiple filter.

The body, that facilities steel and aluminum combination construction with vast components such as appendage tools done of aluminum, is a pivotal cause in a softened doing and larger comfort. The four-door coupe scores tip outlines with honour to physique stiffness, aeroacoustics and aerodynamics. The Gran Turismo booty a passengers with softened acoustic comfort and – interjection to worldly aerodynamics – minimal breeze noise.

The softened breathtaking potion sunroof with quite vast potion elements lets some-more light into a cabin. The exhilarated windshield and wipers with integrated nozzles are additional options for some-more convenience.

Despite a considerably energetic lines, a luggage cell has a bottom ability of 535 liters (18.9 cu ft). This increases to 1,390 liters (49.1 cu ft) with a back seats folded down. The luggage cell has been optimized so that dual golf bags now fit horizontally – in further to a discretionary gangling tire. The discretionary sensor-controlled back induce opens and closes automatically in response to a feet motion.

The new Audi A7 Sportback rolls off a public line during a Neckarsulm site and will launch on a German marketplace in late Feb 2018. The bottom cost for a 55 TFSI quattro S tronic is 67,800 euros.
