2019 Audi A7 Sportback Price
2019 Audi A7 Sportback Price welcome to audicarusa.com discover New Audi sedans, SUVs & coupes get our expert review. A fastback roofline gives the A7 both flair and hatchback practicality, while the luxury cabin pampers occupants. All-wheel drive puts all of the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6’s 340 hp to the ground through an eight-speed automatic. A taut suspension and confident brakes round out the A7’s performance cred. Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard. Night vision, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control are optional. A redesigned A7 debuts in late 2018.
The 2019 Audi A7 arrives in showrooms next year with retuned styling, a heaping dose of new technology, and a trio of powertrains. It’s the second generation for the fastback (a hatchback, technically speaking), and it precedes the arrival of a new A6 sedan that shares its mechanicals by a few months. Audi design chief Marc Lichte and his team penned the new shape, but derive most of it from the 2012 model. The proportions are similar, with a long hood, an elegantly draped roofline, and a long hatch marked by more sharply stamped lines, more trailing cues, and a six-sided grille.
2019 Audi A7 Sportback Specs
The chiseled new looks extend to the cabin, where digital displays dominate and hard buttons have taken a back seat. The new A7 sheds Audi’s old infotainment roller-knob system for one that relies on voice commands and wide touchscreens–a 10.1-inch panel that displays maps and other functions, and a secondary 8.6-inch screen that displays climate functions, drive modes, and accepts handwritten input. On some models, a 12.3-inch reconfigurable display swaps in where gauges would otherwise fit. That driver-focused screen delivers a host of information, from navigation maps to infotainment functions.
For power, Audi will rely on a range of engines in the new 2019 A7. At launch, all U.S.-market cars will feature a single-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 with 340 horsepower. Equipped with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, it should spawn a plug-in hybrid model at some point. Future S7 models will likely sport a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6, while a V-8-powered RS 7 may make a return.
2019 Audi A7 Sportback Interior
The new interior features Audi’s latest MMI infotainment system. First seen in the 2019 A8, the system jettisons the previous version’s rotary control knob for a pair of touchscreens with audible and haptic feedback. One screen is located ahead of the gearshift lever and is used primarily for controlling HVAC functions, while the other lives higher up in the dashboard and is used for operating items such as infotainment and navigation features. Other in-cockpit tech includes an available head-up display and Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster.
In our first drive of the new A8, we found that Audi’s touchscreen MMI interface was quick to respond to our inputs and highly configurable. Nevertheless, we missed the prior MMI system’s physical knobs and buttons, which we found easier to adjust on the fly.
2019 Audi A7 Sportback Engine
At launch, the second-generation A7 will be powered by Audi’s familiar 340-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine. Replacing the current eight-speed automatic transmission is a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Audi claims the combination can send the all-wheel-drive hatchback from zero to 62 mph in 5.3 seconds; top speed is governed at 155 mph.
The powertrain also incorporates a combination alternator and starter that is able to recuperate up to 12 kW of power, which it sends to the car’s 48-volt lithium-ion battery. Other fuel-saving features include an updated auto stop/start system that can use a feed from the A7’s standard front camera to restart the engine when traffic begins moving again (as opposed to today’s systems that fire up the engine only when the driver lets off the brake pedal, though it will do that, too). A freewheeling mode temporarily shuts off the engine when coasting at speeds between 34 mph and 100 mph.
The V6 produces 340PS and 500Nm of torque which allows the Sportback to sprint from 0 to 62mph in 5.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph. It features a mild hybrid system which is said to reduce fuel consumption by up to 0.7 litres per 100 kilometres. Other six and four cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be made available shortly after the car goes on sale. The stop-start function will also help improve fuel efficiency and Audi claims the car can achieve up to 41.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 154g/km.
