2015 Audi A7 and S7 pricing revealed in Australia

Pricing for the 2015 Audi A7 and S7 Sportback has been disclosed for the Australian market. The base version kicks off at $115,400 which represents a significant $21,350 decrease than the 2014 model year. For this money you will be getting the V6 TDI 3.0-liter engine working with a quattro all-wheel drive system while for $144,900 you can get the 3.0-liter TDI bi-turbo quattro model which is now $4,700 cheaper than before. Audi Australia has decided to remove the V6 3.0-liter supercharged engine which means the only gasoline engine on offer is going to be the S7 Sportback priced just like before at $179,900.

The aforementioned 3.0 TDI single-turbo generates 160 kW and a peak torque of 500 Nm which is 20 kW and 80 Nm less than the previous base diesel engine so it shouldn’t come as a surprise the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint now takes 6.8 seconds (0.5s more). On the plus side, combined fuel consumption has dropped by 12% to 5.2 liters / 100 km. We remind you this engine is teamed up with a 7-speed dual clutch S tronic gearbox sending power to both axles.

Lastly, the $179,900 S7 Sportback has a bit-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine with 331 kW (a 22 kW increase) and 550 Nm. It completes the sprint in 4.6 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption of 9.3 liters / 100 km. Audi has fitted the engine with cylinder deactivation technology which means four of the cylinders can be turned off under light throttle and stop/start traffic to cut fuel consumption.
