Following a trend established by other German manufacturers, the Audi A7 represents the latest entrant into the coupe-styled luxury sedan segment. It sports the typical Audi face up front, but the A7 is lower and wider and has a radically sloped roof line to give it the sportier look of a fastback coupe. The A7’s styling is unusual for sure, but chances are it will grow on you once you see it in person.
As expected, stirring performance and exquisite interior refinement are featured prominently. But the sloping rear hatchback’s added style and cargo flexibility do come at the cost of some rear-seat comfort. The A7 is also priced significantly higher than the A6 sedan on which it is based, and that could give buyers some pause.
