2017 Audi A7

Overall Rating: 

The visually stunning and highly capable A7 is aging like a fine German Riesling. Behind the four interlocking rings on the grille lives a four-door luxury fastback with timelessly sexy styling, standard features galore, a refined driving character, and a class-exclusive hatchback body with copious cargo space. A standard 333-hp supercharged V-6 unites with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive in sweetly dynamic fashion. The top-spec Competition model is tuned for extra performance with 340 horsepower and a stiffer sport suspension. Power-hungry buyers might consider the A7’s audacious alternatives—the 450-hp S7 or the RS7, with up to 605 horses—but the standard A7 is plenty quick, and it beautifully balances luxury and athleticism. Its interior epitomizes tranquil quality and boasts top-grade materials. Entering the twilight of its life cycle, the A7 remains relevant through compelling performance, unexpected practicality, and enduring good looks. Like a great wine, it’s nuanced and memorable.

What’s New for 2017?

Audi has ditched the diesel V-6 option and bolstered the standard-equipment list. The base Premium Plus now has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Bose surround-sound audio system, and a new 19-inch wheel design.


Trims and Options We’d Choose

The A7 has one of the highest base prices in the crowded mid-size luxury segment, starting at $69,750 for the entry-level Premium Plus trim. Thankfully, that includes an impressive list of standard equipment, Audi’s vaunted Quattro all-wheel drive, and a strong supercharged V-6. For an extra $2550, the mid-level Prestige adds luxury bits such as power-operated soft-close doors, a head-up display, and ventilated front seats, none of which we need. The top-level Competition has performance upgrades and an even fancier interior, but it starts at $77,500. For that price, we’d spend $3350 more on the 450-hp Audi S7. Sticking with the well-equipped Premium Plus nets us:

• 8.0-inch MMI infotainment screen with navigation
• Leather seats, heated and power adjustable up front
• Front and rear parking sensors
• Adaptive rear spoiler

We also chose add-ons that improve performance and appearance. The S line Sport package ($1000) is a steal, adding unique bumpers, a sport suspension, and unique 19-inch wheels. It also unlocks the $1500 20-inch Black Optic package, which equips the A7 with bigger wheels, adds high-gloss-black exterior accents, and makes optional summer tires available at no cost. In total, our A7 set us back $72,250.
