Audi will pull the covers of its upcoming A7 Sportback, the day, revealing the pattern of attack of the lighting technology, advanced cabin entertainment and information for the first time.
The Sportback, which has just seen in new images after several months of development testing during the summer, will have new skid LED lighting in the front and rear, as well as a cleaning of the cabin design inspired by the Audi Prologue concept.
As shown by the spotted development of the cars, the next A7 liftback tail is family, but the preview images show the sharpness of the details that appear much closer to the concept that any current production model.
Audi designers have been commissioned to give the new model a lot more eye-catching aspect of his more low-key predecessor to emphasize the fact that the advanced technology present inside.
To combat the challenge of rivals like the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class (both of which have been used as points of reference for the new A7), Audi will present its latest Virtual Cockpit technology with the A7. This will see enhanced digital functions integrated in a more cleanly designed instrument panel.
As the 2017 A8 has been revealed, the next A7 models will be supported by Audi, MLB Evo platform, which allows for a wide selection of powertrain options. The A8 offers a fully autonomous driverless mode, the use of Audi, piloted technology driver. A version of this technology is expected in the top-of-the-range in with a7s.
Initially, the S7 will be the most powerful Sportback is available. It will use a twin-turbo V6 with more than 450bhp, which should allow the car to hit 62 mph from rest in around 4.5 sec.
To signify his power, the S7 a little more aggressive exterior design of the regular A7, with a quad-exit exhaust system and 10-spoke wheels – as presented in the development of cars below.
Then the S7, the greater part of the range A7 will use a familiar line-up of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines of four-cylinder and six-cylinder designs. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid propulsion systems, will form the basis of a more efficient combustion-engine models, and the absence of exhaust pipes and in the development of cars spotted earlier in the year to support the assertion that an electric version is in development, too.
Arrive later (probably in 2018) will be the A7 to the coronation of a model, the RS7. The car that sit above the S7, and it is likely to come with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine producing over 600 bhp – at least 46bhp more than the current version.
