The A7 is revamped for 2016 with more powerful yet more efficient engines, a new front fascia that includes LED headlights, and a revised rear exterior with LED taillights and trapezoidal tailpipes. New technology includes night-vision assist with animal detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, and 4G LTE in-cabin Internet connectivity.
All A7 3.0T and TDI models now come standard with Audi side assist and pre-sense rear, plus 4-zone automatic climate control. Prestige models get a standard S line package with LED headlights, while RS 7 models offer a performance-enhancing Dynamic package, plus a Carbon package to dress up the exterior.
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.
About Audi S7
If you were to combine style, function, technology and individualism into just one automobile, you'd get the 2016 Audi A7. Though its silhouette mimics a coupe in a sedan's suit, the A7 is neither. With its rear liftgate and open cargo space, the A7 is actually one of the world's sexiest hatchbacks. As is often the case with Audi, this German luxury car comes with the brand's Quattro all-wheel-drive system, making it surefooted no matter the road or season. The best of Audi's other traits are also abundant, including an innovative infotainment system and excellent ergonomics. A bevy of engine choices are available, including powerful V8s in the S7 and RS 7 performance models. Starting near $70,000, though, the A7's fine attributes don't come cheap.
