The big news for the 2014 Audi A7 is the addition of a diesel engine model and a new, high-performance RS 7, the most powerful RS model ever offered in the U.S. Other changes include the removal of the rear bucket seats on A7 and the deletion of the Premium trim.
It was Mercedes-Benz that, 10 years ago, decided to call its sleek CLS sedan a "4-door coupe." Since then, the sleek-sedan concept has grown more common, but leave it to Audi to change the formula, offering up the 5-door Audi A7 hatchback as a luxury counterpunch to its German rivals. With generous cargo space and a striking silhouette, the Audi A7 is a rolling showcase of everything Audi does right: a stunning interior, quattro all-wheel drive (AWD), high-tech goodies and a choice of supercharged V6, turbocharged diesel or turbocharged V8 engines. The A7 fits between the more mainstream A6 and the massive A8, holding a special appeal to those who desire functionality and performance in a design that's eye-catching, some might even say polarizing.
