The 2019 Audi A7 shows up in display rooms 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 few months.
Audi style chief Marc Lichte and his team penned the new shape, but obtain the majority of it from the 2012 model. The percentages are comparable, with a long hood, an elegantly curtained roofline, and a long hatch marked by more dramatically stamped lines, more routing cues, and a six-sided grille.
2019 Audi A7 Design
The current A7 is built on the Volkswagen Group’s MLB II-Evo platform, which it shares with other brand-new models consisting of the Q7 and Q5 SUVs. Using lighter and stiffer materials, engineers have added a half-inch to its wheelbase, though general length is down marginally and height hasn’t altered at all.
The sculpted makeovers encompass the cabin, where digital display screens dominate and hard buttons have actually taken a back seat. The brand-new A7 sheds Audi’s old infotainment roller-knob system for one that relies on voice commands and wide touchscreens– a 10.1-inch panel that shows maps and other functions, and a secondary 8.6-inch screen that displays environment functions, drive modes, and accepts handwritten input. On some models, a 12.3-inch reconfigurable display swaps in where determines 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 rely on a range of engines in the new 2019 A7. At launch, all U.S.-market cars will feature a single-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 with 340 horse power. Equipped with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, it should generate a plug-in hybrid model eventually. 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 matched by brand-new technology such as rear-wheel steering, which can call in up to 5 degrees of countersteer to the rear wheels at parking-lot speeds to assist the A7 corner more effectively. The countersteer is called down and out as the A7 reaches greater speeds.
Audi’s newest self-driving technology will bow on the A7. The hatchback will follow Audi’s A8 sedan with Level 3 self-governing ability, which suggests its Traffic Jam Pilot will have the ability to control the car without driver input at speeds of up to 37 mph. The system will be presented, however Audi hasn’t promised an on-sale date just yet.
