Autoinfomotive – 2017 Audi A7 Review. The new 2017 Audi A7 is elegant, beautiful, and hands down sophisticated. Other highlights for 2017 include top-notch technologies, strong acceleration, thrifty diesel powerplant, a hush and cosseting interior, and a handy hatchback trunk. It’s a highly desirable luxury car. Its release date should be expected sometime in the second half of next year.
The 2016 A7 review was glowing, so it’s really hard to see how the 2017 A7 can surpass that. Anyway, there is no doubt whatsoever that the new model is as appealing as its predecessor. Additionally, Audi has gone a notch higher and updated its infotainment system and other technologies in overall in order to keep up with modern times.
Several tweaks should be expected on its rear and front fascia. Up front, the A7 comes with re-tweaked LED headlights and a bolder trapezoidal grille. Further aback, it now features a new set of sleek trapezoidal exhaust outlets and LED taillights.
Upon entering the cabin, there are dizzying amounts of new technologies ranging from the added USB ports and the upgraded smartphone app integration to the exalted MMI interface that now offers faster response and quicker processing power than the outgoing system.
In terms of fuel economy, Audi says we should expect improved ratings thanks to the revised supercharged V6 engine that is now able to generate more power while ensuring thriftiness at the pump. Other A7 strengths remain unaltered including the unprecedented blend of efficiency and performance offered by the outstanding TDI Diesel V6 engine. This mill provides the same fuel economy as the Dodge Dart and yet doesn’t compromise its performance, with its 0-60 mph acceleration only taking under 6.0 seconds.
It is also a viable option for those living in mundane areas where added traction goes a long way in providing peace of mind, as it comes with a standard Quattro drive system. Another notable upside is its rich and well-trimmed cabin that hosts some of the latest entertainment and control features. The only foible that seems to haunt its reputation seems to be its headroom space, which is rather limited relative to what the competition offers.
Nonetheless, there are other vehicles in this prestigious class. But even so, the 2017 Audi A7 could prove hard to resist. In fact, apples to apples, the only true rival out there seems to be the Porsche Panamera. Although at a distance, you can also check out both the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class four-door coupes.
2017 Audi A7 Accessories
Some of the standard accessories to expect on the A7 3.0T Premium Plus include adjustable settings, power-folding auto-dimming mirrors, LED taillights and headlights, keyless ignition and entry, front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, a blind-spot warning with rear cross traffic alert, Audi Pre Sense Basic and Rear, adaptive rear spoiler, and a power liftgate.
Motivation for the 2017 Audi A7 is offered by two engines: a 333- horsepower- and 325 lbs. ft. of torque – generating supercharged 3.0L V6 engine (3.0T) and a 240 horsepower- and 428 lbs. ft. of torque – generating turbocharged 3.0L diesel V6 (TDI).
Zipping from 0-60 mph with an A7 TDI only takes 5.8 seconds, and 4.8 seconds with an A7 3.0T model. When we come to the fuel economy, expect an A7 TDI to return 25/38/30 mpg in the city/highway/combined, and 20/30/24 mph with the A7 3.0T.
2017 Audi A7 Release Date
The 2017 Audi A7 price should be expected to start from an MSRP of $70,000 for the A7 Diesel, and $68,300 for the A7 Sedan.
