The new, spacious Audi A7 five-door coupe is now even more powerful and attractive with new engine configurations, new transmissions, headlights, taillights and new infotainment systems that is perfect for the discerning tastes of automotive enthusiasts in the Middle East.
Driving down the Beach Road in Dubai, the car, undoubtedly the best in its class, commanded a second look by the many motor enthusiasts who cruise the streets on weekends. The A7 combines the emotional appeal and sportiness of a coupe with the comfort of a sedan and the functional benefits of an Avant.
Audi is known for setting new standards in automotive design, embracing an athletic aesthetic and elegance in grand style. In A7, the striking sporty, flowing C‑pillars and the sharply dropping rear end create a dynamic overall impression.
The body of the new Audi A7 is extraordinarily lightweight and designed for maximum comfort in terms of noise. The boot space under the long, electrically driven trunk lid has a huge base capacity and fits everything an executive needs. It was particularly a hit with my golfing mates who always wanted a sleek sedan but never had enough space for their golf bags.
The sporty style of the exterior is echoed in the car’s interior. The dominant element is the horizontal line surrounding the driver and passenger. The dashboard gives an impression of lightness and elegance. The new interior materials, including the aluminum-Beaufort walnut inlay and standard Valcona leather are impressive.
The new Audi A7 is confident and relaxed to drive. The electric front seats can be optionally equipped with ventilation and massage functions. The MMI navigation plus system with MMI touch comes standard; it can be supplemented as an option with a head‑up display that projects all-important information onto the windshield.
To start out, Audi is offering the new A7 with a choice of three powerful and highly efficient engines: two TFSI and one FSI engine. Their power rating ranges from 220 hp to 333 hp.
The A7 offers an extensive range of standard options: Electric sunroof, keyless entry & go, parking sensors with rear view camera and individual contour seats with Valcona leather to just mention some of them.
For infotainment, the A7’s standard MMI navigation plus system with MMI touch utilizes the latest generation of the modular infotainment system; its highlight is a powerful graphics processor from Audi’s partner Nvidia. The Touchpad controls let the driver scroll and zoom in lists and maps. The top of the Hi-Fi line is the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System.
The adaptive cruise control with stop & go function, the further improved night vision assistant and the Audi pre sense safety systems are all state of the art. Audi side assist and Audi active lane assist work closely together to make lane changes even safer.
Interested buyers can note that the color palette has been redesigned, offering six color options even for the seats, perfect for the most discerning Middle East car lovers.
