Audi A7 Sportback

Just as Mercedes CLS and BMW 6 Series ARE impressive due to their ride, the A7 is in the same league. When the A7 goes around into the corners, it is very quick and safe because of Quattro drive technology, but sadly it doesn’t offer strong feedback from the steering or suspension like its rivals. It makes the A7 experience a pat overcast and Audi A7 Sportback’s suspension is extremely firm and sure-footed while cruising on the motorway It is an ultimate motorway cruiser because of its powerful engines, either petrol or diesel.

Audi A7 was launched with just one petrol engine, which was a 3.0-litre V6 capable of generating  306 bhp and pushed the A7 on the road very hard. The Audi A7 took 5.6 seconds from zero to 62 miles per hour. It is mated with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and all wheel drive technology to cover the ground with enormous easiness. Though it is a powerful contestant in the petrol line-up but there is a weak fellow as well, it is a 2.8 litre version. It not so refined and swift, responds badly and feels laboured if you push it a bit hard. In the petrol engine line-up, 3.0 litre supercharged engine is very good and it is a driver’s choice with crispy sound and agile throttle response with passion and will push the driver back into the seats on a hard throttle push.

Diesel Audi A7 engines are ever loved power units and A7 is expected to be launched with a non Quattro 201 bhp model with wonderful power delivery and smooth performance. It churns out 241 bhp engine which is a lot compared with other diesel variants. It has very refined fuel delivery system which delivers a class leading fuel economy. Audi says that it’s all wheel drive versions with 3.0 litre diesel engines are very popular in its auto markets and these TDI engines are superior to the competition. The 3.0 litre TDI engines take the A7 from zero to 62mph in just 5.6 seconds that is 1.1 seconds faster than its competitors Mercedes CLS and 1.3 seconds faster than BMW 535i GT.
