2019 Audi A7 remains faithful in the form of hatchback swoopy it
Audi A7 is one of the original vehicles that carry what I call “swoopy coupe” to the sedan. Sure, you can get an A6 instead, but you lose the practicality and form of the accompanying hatchback. This is not for everyone, and this time, his style is still a bit polarized, but as interesting as before, if not more.
From the front, things are a little different. The headlights have changed and soon brought the newly introduced A8 2018 sedan to mind. The appearance of the veil is stronger, and there are many folds everywhere.
In hindsight, the design adopts a single-piece rear light that seems – again, draws some inspiration from the new A8. The tapered hatchback still exists, and it flows to the back just as before. The back also contains an integrated spoiler that extends automatically at speeds above 75 mph. The back light plays a small animation when the door is opened.
2019 Audi A7 Interior
The interior is, somehow, even more futuristic than its exterior. There are plenty of A8 here too, especially in the center console and the two screen layouts in the middle stack. The top screen mainly deals with your standard infotainment function – navigation, audio and the like. The bottom focuses on climate control. If two screens are not enough for you, you can replace the cluster gauge with another. If that’s not enough, there’s also an optional head-up view.
A7 technology goes beyond the striking screen. Seven different drivers can create individual user profiles so you do not get stuck with radio presets and other people’s navigational destinations. The car can also self-park without a driver in the vehicle. By pressing the Audi AI button on the Audi smartphone app, the driver can see the vehicle park itself in the room or the garage independently. The feature is scheduled to arrive in Europe in 2018, and is likely to arrive in Stateside as soon as Audi gets federal approval.
Your regular driver-assistance system is spread over three different packages. The Audi AI parking package includes the semi-autonomous stuff, while the other two contain direct systems such as adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking. The Tour Assist package will offer tips for more efficient driving and use the steering wheel to help the vehicle stay on track.

2019 Audi A7 Powertrain
Audi A7 standard engine when launched is a 3.0-liter V6, produces 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, mated to seven-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. That’s enough to get 2019 A7 to 62 mph in 5.3 seconds. Audi says the other four and six cylinder engines of both gas and diesel varieties will follow. It’s also safe to assume that the performance-oriented S7 and RS7 models will arrive after that.
Like the previous A8, all A7 models will come with a light 48-volt hybrid system that stores excess energy captured from braking with lithium-ion batteries. The engine can be detached from the transmission at highway speed, sliding by engine until acceleration is required. The stop-start function of the car also extends up to 14 mph, for a little extra efficiency.
The A7 is not just aiming to inhale fuel, either – you can still ride a pair of pants from it. The further you turn the steering wheel, the harder the steering feels. There are four different suspension sets on offer – steel springs, inferior sport suspensions, electronically adjusted silencers and air suspension leveling. Four-wheel steering is also available, reducing circular rotation as far as 3.6 feet.
Audi A7 2019 will go on sale in Germany in February, with other markets following. In its home market, the price will be sold from € 67,800, which is converted to just under $ 80,000 US. However, with European taxes and market prices being as it is, it is natural to assume that when a new generation comes to America, the land price will be close to the base price of the 2018 model which starts at $ 69,700 before shipping.
