The 2016 Audi A7 is a refined powertrain that comes into the scene with shapely look and a superbly appointed cabin. It has a large trunk to provide optimal storage space, and a good list of safety features to make this a highly desirable vehicle.
The 2016 Audi A7 is When Tradition Meets Modern Technology
All of the qualities from the 2010 model are still present within the 2016 Audi A7. Its aluminum-body and five-door aesthetic is still present, and it still has that sexy sleek liftback shape. It also has an impeccably trimmed cabin with a mix of utility and authentic road manners. The slight facelift and updated technology serve to boost the car’s elegance and appeal. It is a car that has been brought into the modern era but still maintains its sleek and sexy looks throughout its variations. To some, this may be the George Clooney of automobiles.
For the 2016 model of the Audi A7, it suggests that little has been changed. It still has the same low-slung, yet stunningly crafted cabin as its previous models. It has seating for four, or it can fit five if the rear-seat passengers don’t mind squeezing a bit. Premium materials are everywhere for the interiors, which should be the case for a high-end automobile.
The differences this time around are found beneath the surface. In other words, these changes are all technological in nature. For instance, there is a new infotainment controller that integrates Apple Siri Eyes Free. Said infotainment system also has online traffic information (courtesy of Inrix) and streaming Web radio functionality. Audi still provides one of the best infotainment systems on the market to-date, and the one that they placed for the A7 is no joke either.
As like before, this vehicle is exclusively an all-wheel-drive model. It comes into the market with a 3-liter supercharged V6 engine. There’s also a torquey TDI model, S7, and RS 7 variants. For the 2016 model, the A7 is now able to produce 333 horsepower, which is an increase of 23, and 325 pound-feet of torque. The acceleration is also improved, albeit slightly, as it can now do 0 to 60 mpg that has dropped to two-tenths to 5.2 seconds. Top speeds can still be found at 130 mph.
The 2016 Audi A7 is an all-around elegant masterpiece of a vehicle that can defy age with each model. While there are some flaws, like the low roofline in the backseat (which hinders some headroom), it seems minor compared to its overall look and performance.
