The Audi A7 Sportback (Presentation video)



The Audi A7 Sportback

Measuring 4.97 meters (16.31 ft) in length, the five-door model is an Audi in top form. Its low, dynamically drawn roof line and flowing rear lend it the character of a coupe. Every detail of the elegant interior documents the care with which Audi builds cars. High-quality materials spoil the senses.

The front seats are optionally available with ventilation and massage functions. The MMI operating system comes standard; among the optional equipment is a head-up display.

Audi offers the A7 Sportback with a choice of six powerful and cultivated V6 engines: two gasoline and four TDI units. They develop between 150 kW (204 hp) and 230 kW (313 hp) and are impressively efficient.

The new 3.0 TDI with 150 kW (204 hp) consumes an average of just 5.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (44.38 US mpg). All engines feature innovative thermal management and a start-stop-system.

Engine lineup:

– 2.8 FSI and 2.8 FSI quattro with 150 kW (204 hp)
– 3.0 TFSI quattro with 228 kW (310 hp)
– 3.0 TDI and 3.0 TDI quattro with 150 kW (204 hp)
– 3.0 TDI quattro with 180 kW (245 hp)
– 3.0 TDI clean diesel quattro with 180 kW (245 hp)
– 3.0 TDI quattro with 230 kW (313 hp)

The standard automatic transmissions also play a role in the efficiency of the A7 Sportback. The user-friendly multitronic for the 2.8 FSI and 3.0 TDI with 150 kW (204 hp) delivers the engine power to the front wheels. The sporty seven-speed S tronic delivers the power to all four wheels. The 3.0 TDI quattro with 230 kW (313 hp) is equipped with an eight-speed tiptronic.

The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system features torque vectoring for superior traction, stability and dynamics. It can be complemented with the optional sport differential for the rear axle.

The Audi pre sense safety system can reduce the severity of accidents and their consequences in many cases. Audi active lane assist helps the driver to keep the A7 Sportback firmly on course, and the park assist system relieves the driver of the chore of steering when parking.

The night vision assistant with highlighting of detected persons reduces the stress of driving in the dark. Audi side assist and speed limit detection round out the list.
