We have a bit of Audi A7-fever at the moment. Now that the second-gen A7 has been revealed, we can’t stop thinking/talking about it. Not only is it one of Audi’s most exciting luxury cars but the new one is simply stunning looking. It seems like we’re not the only ones, though. This new video from Carwow goes through the top ten things you should know about the new Audi A7.
The first thing to note is the styling, obviously. Carwow’s Mat Watson thinks is looks very futuristic, which is does, and then asks the audience to vote for the best looking car in the segment, with choices including the Audi A7, BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and Porsche Panamera. We already compared the Audi A7 to the 6 Series Gran Turismo, which will be more of its true competitor than the 6er Gran Coupe in the future, and deemed the A7 to be better looking. To be honest, if we’re including the 6 Series Gran Coupe, that car might actually get our vote. But the A7 is better looking than the others.
Watson also talks about the A7’s engines, which really aren’t that surprising. The headline engine is the same 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 from the Audi S4, that makes 340 hp and can get the A7 from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds. The other engine at launch is a 3.0 liter TDI V6 but that’s sort of boring.
Next up is the interior, which is stunning. The design is largely borrowed from the Audi A8 but looks far more driver-oriented and has some sportier touches. While the dual-touchscreen system looks very slick and has excellent graphics, it’s not as easy to use as the current MMI system. Though, the new Virtual Cockpit looks absolutely fantastic.
He then talks about its driving dynamics, technology and practicality. All of which are important. But what you really want to see from the A7 are those dancing taillights, right? Well, you’re in store for a treat then, as this video shows off the taillights doing their thing and it’s great fun to watch.
If you’re as excited about the new Audi A7 as we are, this is a good video to watch. It goes through some of the important aspects of the car and what you need to know if you’re a fan or potential customer.
