The second generation of Audi’s driver-friendly fastback made its debut last October. Stylists took what people liked about the original car, such as the dashing design, and carefully honed it into a smarter, more refined package. To our eyes, it works well. It’s one of the most aesthetically-pleasing cars to come out of the four-door coupe mold. Intricately-styled lights on both ends help the A7 stand out even when it’s pitch black outside.
INTERIOR AND TECH
The A7 upholds Audi’s reputation for making cars with crisp-looking interiors. Horizontal pieces of trim on the dashboard emphasize the cabin’s width while adding a touch of understated elegance, which matches the exterior design. It’s all clean, purposeful, and characteristically Teutonic; you won’t find a line, a crease, or a dip that’s superfluous or overly ostentatious. Designers neatly embedded the air vents into the top part of the dashboard, and hid the front USB ports out of sight under the armrest. We found the front seats softer than the ones in the Porsche Panamera, which puts a bigger focus on dynamism than its cousin from the Audi clan.
The infotainment system seems daunting at first. Three separate screens; picture that. That’s at least one more than you’ll find in most cars currently in the A7’s competitive set, like the Mercedes-Benz CLS. Road testers in the 1970s had to worry about humidity making its way under the distributor cap. In 2018, we only pop the hood to satisfy our own curiosity, and we don’t bring our own tools to launch events, but we need to figure out how to integrate a trio of small televisions into the average commute. In reality, the setup is a lot less intimidating than it looks because it’s intuitive and, ultimately, everything is there for a reason.
