2013 Audi A7 at Fletcher Jones Audi in ChicagoAn Audi for the avant-garde
Drivers who prefer their luxury with a dose of originality need look no further than the Audi A7. Combining strong, smooth performance and a wealth of space and amenities, it also features a body whose unique form and daring roofline make for a striking statement on the road.Eliminating compromise
Designing a car with a shapely shell usually comes at great cost to function, but not so here. By carefully weighing factors like aesthetics, aerodynamics, and the optimal position of rear passengers, Audi was able to infuse the A7 with a coupe-like roofline yet maintain generous measurements for headroom, legroom, and shoulder room for all inside. An even more impressive figure is its cargo capacity, which at 24.5 cubic feet is over 60 percent more voluminous than its closest competitor.A cabin as artful as the body surrounding it
As pleasing as its form may be to behold, the Audi A7 reserves its best sensory delights for those seated within. A dashboard with genuine wood and aluminum accents presents the driver with crisp gauges, firm controls, and a steering wheel with controls for audio, voice control, and the driver information system. Available twelve-way power front seats cosset the driver and passenger with supple leather surfaces, heaters, and independent climate controls, while two more adults can relax in what might be the roomiest, most comfortable rear quarters in the class.A beauty that knows how to dance
Beneath the smooth body of every Audi A7 lies a surprising amount of muscle and athleticism. Under the hood lies a 310-horsepower V6 whose supercharged design, Audi FSI® direct injection technology, and eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission enable it to hit 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds. The A7 is also a willing handler, thanks in part to innovative electromechanical steering and a front weight bias of only 54 percent ? the result of strategic powertrain packaging and Audi ultra® lightweight technology. Better still, standard Audi quattro® all-wheel drive means the A7 can work its moves in practically any season, rain or shine.Ready for any circumstance
When it comes to occupant protection in the A7, Audi left no stone unturned. Eight standard airbags, including two at knee-level, keep occupants protected from the front and sides, while Electronic Stability Control helps secure the car's intended path at all times. In the event of a collision, intelligent sensors automatically unlock the doors, switch on interior and hazard lights, and cut off fuel flow to the engine.
