Next generation Audi A7 expected to have a less distinctive rear

A new report states the next generation Audi A7 is going to lose its rather distinctive rear end. According to Car & Driver, the stylish four-door coupe will adopt a “more mainstream butt” once the second gen will be out in a couple of years. This decision comes as a big surprise but apparently it has been taken after many buyers have expressed their desire to have a more conventional rear end as they are not very fond of the current look.

The next generation Audi A7 will be out in 2-3 years and will be styled after last year’s Prologue concept. In charge of design is March Lichte who has previously announced the new A7 will have the most radical design when compared to the upcoming new A6 and A8 models. Likely coming out in 2017, the new A7 Sportback is going to be based on the second generation MLB platform which should bring a serious weight loss.

Other details are scarce at the moment, but chances are the engine lineup will be sourced from the new Audi Q7. Following the launch of the standard A7, the model range will be expanded by the addition of the S7 version as well as the range-topping RS7 which will likely be out in 2018 or 2019.
