2011 Audi A7 Sportback Unveiled


This is the production version of the Audi A7 Sportback which was first seen as a concept in 2009, and it’s going on sale from fall 2010, with a starting price of 51,650 Euros.

With this model Audi wanted to introduce a rival for Mercedes CLS, which will come as a new generation, but apparently they got carried away and went some steps further!

Instead of creating a four-door coupe, they gave it a fastback design which means it’s a five-door. That has made the back-end of the car a bit weird, but in return, it improves practicality and luggage space. The A7 offers up to 1390 liters boot space.

Audi is not giving the car any high performance engine, at least for now. The car will launch with four V6 engine, including two petrol and a diesel with two levels of power. The petrol models include a 2.8 and a 3.0 liter  with 204 and 300 hp respectively.

And the diesel is a 3.0 liter TDI with either 204 or 245 hp and incredible fuel economy of 39 and 63 mpg respectively.

Audi A7 can be had with either comfort or sport suspension and 18 to 20-inch wheels, and features a large number of standard and optional convenience features. It comes with deluxe automatic air conditioning system, keyless ignition via the engine start-stop button, the four-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel, the xenon headlights, the LED tail lights, the MMI radio with the 6.5-inch monitor, the electromechanical parking brake, the power rear hatch, the 18-inch alloy wheels and an acoustic windshield. The safety package leaves nothing to be desired, with two front, side and head airbags, four belt tensioners and the integral head restraint system.

The choice of seats is also first-class – from power-adjustable comfort seats with heating, cooling and massage to sport seats. A storage package keeps things tidy.
