Exclamation New Audi A7 is High Tech!

New Audi A7 Full review

I went to test drive the new Audi A7, i had it for 19 hours and I felt in love with it from the first time!

- The car exterior is aggressive, the new hood and lights and side profile is more sporty and mean
- Interior is best in class and new infotainment system is a real step up! sometimes the 2 screens could be a distraction from the road and driving but i think we could get used on that.
- Performance, engine is smooth and lag is not so obvious, the power could be a bit better especially for such a big and heavy car, the torque is strong and in low RPM you could feel it instantly and will push u back in your seat.
- S tronic 7 gears are best so far and really fast in upshifiting and downshifting, they really improve it over the other cars.
- sound is no existent but its no fake noise or artificial coming though the speakers, I wish the exhaust was better

Ultimately this is best Audi in terms of Tech and comfort, I really like the car, I will give it 4/5
also for more Audi Videos you can subsribe to my channel

Something really bothers me about that steering wheel... the S7 gets a nice 3 point wheel; this is just odd. Otherwise, seems like a nice car.

I think it's the silver trim pieces flowing over to the actual wheel. You're so right, it looks quite odd.

A shame they ruined the look of it. The first one was distinctive. This one is beyond dull. Don't care for the tech stuff...

I don’t like the continuous rear tailight. Should have separated right where the license place starts on both sides. Would it give that unique ‘Audi’ look. The rear lower chrome piece can be enhanced and painted dark chrome gunmetal instead. The wheels look cheap; instead a true unique ‘S’ model car wheels ought to be used.

I really hate those irritating Audi indicators. And I’m disappointed that other manufacturers are now copying them.

Really nice car inside and out.

My gripe with the A7 is that (like all Audis) it's quite ho-hum to drive. Fast and capable but devoid of any feedback to the driver. I suppose once people reach the age where they can afford such a car that is what they want...

So what will BMW's entry in this segment be now? 8-series Gran Coupe is coming but I expect it be priced well into the $100Ks as the coupe starts at $110K!

Exactly this car is really loaded plus it looks very good especially from the inside but it doesn't satisfy the driver if he knows what driving is all about. 8 series grand coupe will smoke this in terms of performance and handling, steering feedback etc

Uh, you're talking double the money. Compare an RS7 to the 8GC and it won't be as clear.

Except the 8er GC will be way too fkin expensive. The dorky frumpy 6GT is priced alongside the A7 and CLS. What a joke!

It looks like a F1 wheel with the top and bottom of a regular wheel added back in. I kind alike it. If only they took the same types of risks for the exterior. It's so bland.
