The 2019 Audi A7 shows up in showrooms this year with retuned styling, a heaping dosage of brand-new technology, and a trio of powertrains. It’s the second generation for the fastback (a hatchback, technically speaking), and it precedes the arrival of a brand-new A6 sedan that shares its mechanicals by a couple of months.
Audi style chief Marc Lichte and his group penned the new shape, however obtain most of it from the 2012 model. The proportions are similar, with a long hood, an elegantly draped roofline, and a long hatch marked by more dramatically stamped lines, more tracking cues, and a six-sided grille.
2019 Audi A7 Design
The latest A7 is developed on the Volkswagen Group’s MLB II-Evo platform, which it shows other new models including the Q7 and Q5 SUVs. Using lighter and stiffer materials, engineers have added a half-inch to its wheelbase, though general length is down partially and height hasn’t changed at all.
The sculpted new looks extend to the cabin, where digital screens control and hard buttons have taken a rear seats. The new A7 sheds Audi’s old infotainment roller-knob system for one that depends on voice commands and broad touchscreens– a 10.1-inch panel that shows maps and other functions, and a secondary 8.6-inch screen that shows environment functions, drive modes, and accepts handwritten input. On some models, a 12.3-inch reconfigurable display screen swaps in where gauges would otherwise fit. That driver-focused screen delivers a host of information, from navigation maps to infotainment functions.
2019 Audi A7 Engine
For power, Audi will depend on a series of engines in the brand-new 2019 A7. At launch, all U.S.-market cars will feature a single-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 with 340 horsepower. Equipped with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, it must spawn a plug-in hybrid model at some point. Future S7 models will likely sport a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6, while a V-8-powered RS 7 may make a return.
An independent suspension and all-wheel drive will be complemented by brand-new technology such as rear-wheel steering, which can call in as much as 5 degrees of countersteer to the rear wheels at parking-lot speeds to assist the A7 corner better. The countersteer is called down and out as the A7 reaches higher speeds.
Audi’s most current self-driving technology will bow on the A7. The hatchback will follow Audi’s A8 sedan with Level 3 self-governing ability, which indicates its Traffic Jam Pilot will have the ability to control the car without driver input at speeds of as much as 37 mph. The system will be introduced, but Audi hasn’t promised an on-sale date right now.
