Audi A7 Sportback 2014 Facelift And Improvements
|   Friday, June 13, 2014
Audi just launched the new and improved A7 Sportback. They tinkered around with almost everything and supposedly we have a better version. Let's see if that's true.

Thanks to new engines, transmissions, headlights, taillights and infotainment systems, the spacious 5-door coupe is now stronger and more attractive. The new A7 Sportback combines the sportiness of a coupe with the excitement and comfort of a sedan and the functional advantages of an Avant.


At the debut of the A7 in 2010, Audi set new standards in terms of car design, exposing high aesthetic athleticism and elegance. The long engine hood, athletic C columns and the steep rear created a dynamic overall impression. The new five-door version of the model measures 4.97 meters in length and is equipped with new remarkable sports features.

Most changes were made to the single-frame grill, bumpers, exhaust pipes and headlights. LED technology is now standard and, on request, Audi can offer Matrix LED headlight technology, ensuring optimum road illumination without dazzling other road users. Besides the Matrix LED lights, the model is provided with dynamic headlight signaling, which is standard for the rear lights.

The Audi A7 Sportback bodywork is mainly made of aluminum and modern types of high quality steel, making it very light. Comfort in terms of noise level inside is complete. The electrically operated storage, found under the long tailgate, has a capacity of 535 liters. When folding the rear seat backs, this space increases to 1,390 liters.

The sporty style of the exterior continues to the interior. The predominant element is the horizontal line that surrounds the driver and the right passenger. The board gives the impression of elegance and is easy to use. The new interior materials, including aluminum trim, Beaufort walnut and Valcona leather, impress with their degree of processing.

The color palette has been redesigned, featuring five color options for even the chairs. There are four versions of the front seats. They can be equipped with optional ventilation and massage function. MMI radio operating system is standard and it can be additionally equipped with head-up display system that projects important information onto the windscreen.

For starters, the Audi A7 Sportback offers a new choice of five powerful, highly efficient engines: two Otto units and three diesels. Their powers range between 218 hp and 333 hp, all meeting the Euro 6 standard. Many aspects of the 3.0-liter TDI clean diesel, with 272 hp, have been redesigned.

The V6 engine version with 218 hp and front-wheel drive, with a displacement of three liters, consumes on average 4.7 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers, corresponding to CO2 emission value of 122 grams per kilometer. The 4.0-liter TFSI engine is the most powerful, and equips the Audi S7 Sportback. It develops an output of 450 hp and benefits from innovative COD (cylinder on demand) technology.

Assistance systems, including adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, the assistant spot at night, and Audi pre-sense safety system, are also the latest generation. Audi side assist and Audi active lane assist work closely in order to safely change lanes. 

The new A7 will arrive in dealerships in the second half of 2014. In Germany, the starting price is 51,300 Euros and for the Audi S7 it's 82,300 Euro.
