The new A7 Sportback is now available in Audi Showrooms throughout the Middle East. It represents the new Audi design language and delivers on the design promise made by the prologue concept car studies.
It offers the design of a Coupé, the spaciousness of a saloon and the variability of an Avant. The interior concept of the A7 Sportback impresses with more space and more comfortable seating — and it achieves that despite having a dynamic roofline. Despite the markedly dynamic lines, the luggage compartment has a base capacity of 535 liters. This increases to 1,390 liters with the rear seats folded down.
It comes standard with the MMI radio; MMI navigation and MMI navigation plus are available as options. There is a choice of four sound systems. The top version, the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System, also delivers fascinating 3D sound to the rear seats.
The optional dynamic-all-wheel steering, the new electronic chassis program (ECP) — the central controller for the chassis — and the updated air suspension make it even more agile, nimble and comfortable. The top chassis-related innovation is dynamic-all-wheel steering which combines direct, sporty steering response with unshakable stability, resolving the conflict of aims between agility and comfort.
It comes standard with a new mild hybrid system (MHEV) for greater comfort and efficiency, reducing fuel consumption by up to 0.7 liters per 100km. With the V6 engine, this uses a 48-volt primary electrical system. A belt alternator starter (BAS) works together with a lithium-ion battery. At speeds between 55 and 160kph, the four-door coupe can coast in freewheeling mode with the engine deactivated and then restarted comfortably via the BAS. The start-stop function has been significantly expanded and now activates at 22kph.
