Model A7 was published relatively recently and it’s quite an unusual proposal of the German automaker. This is due to the fact that the car has almost all the qualities of the flagship, but at the same time is the younger model. It can be noted that it is on the A7 that many systems are tested, which after passing to the A8. The new Audi A7 2018 will be significantly different from the previous generation.

EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN

EXTERIOR

Audi A7 2018 is a stylish and modern design with a wide radiator grille, distinctive headlights and sport air intakes. Also, the new Sportback sculpted the hood, bold side lines and sloping roof.

There are several reasons why we should wait for a new generation, and not buy an affordable version, albeit at a slightly lower price. The main one is almost completely redesigned exterior. It turned out very attractive:

The front part does not change much. To begin with, we note that the level of the arrangement of the arches has increased substantially, while the lower line of the glasses has remained unchanged. Therefore, the distance from the wheel to the hood is minimal.

Head optics are cutting-edge, but designers did not significantly change it from the outside. All the changes can be noticed when you turn on the light – the headlights look gorgeous. True, new optics will be available most likely only in the top version.

The radiator grille has an ambiguous design. It has all the same large dimensions, but there are no chrome elements.

Most of all the impressions are caused by the rear part of the new car. The shape still resembles an elongated trunk of a hatchback, but the lights are very beautiful. First, they are small in size, and secondly they are manufactured using modern technology. Along the entire trunk lid there is a dividing strip, which is perceived as part of the headlights.

Exhaust pipes are almost completely absent.

You can buy a new car in several different colors.

The rear of the Audi A7 2018 is “tapered like a yacht” and is equipped with a spoiler that automatically rises at a speed of 120 km / h. Completes the harmony of the “stern” wide luminous band, consisting of 13 segments, which can play various animations.

INTERIOR

Inside the Audi A7 2018 is an elegant and high-tech interior with two displays. Buyers will be offered various “buns” like virtual cockpit and audio system Bang & Olufsen. Among other things – leather upholstery Valcona, voice control technology and a special lighting system.

The idea of ​​using touchscreens to control the main functions has long been considered by automakers. However, it is on the car in question that it will install 3 displays, each responsible for certain functions. The lack of a large number of keys makes the interior minimalistic, which looks very attractive. Among the main features of the style are:

The instrument panel is really unusual. If Mercedes was the first to install the display as a basic option, then Audi developed this idea. Now, the instrument panel display can display navigation in 3D mode with the function of overlaying images obtained during satellite imagery. Graphics looks just gorgeous.

The main display of the multimedia system is very nicely integrated into the center console. It looks very beautiful.

Control of the basic functions, for example, the modes of seat heating or climate control, can also be done through another touch screen with the original graphics.

The tunnel between the front seats is carbon-trimmed, has the minimum number of keys and only the selector lever for the automatic transmission.

The entire interior is simply oversaturated with various bends and notches. At first it may seem like an unusual solution, but then you get used to it. Everything looks quite unusual and at the same time it is in harmony with the rest of the equipment.

In the cabin there is simply a huge number of different keys for maintaining the position of the seat, adjusting them, and so on. All of them are hidden and are in a convenient place.

The second row in the top version is equipped with a separate multimedia system. Due to the increase in the size of the body space became much more.

The quality of the finish is best. This combines a variety of materials: perforated leather, soft plastic, metal, veneer.

The steering wheel is multi-functional, but has relatively few keys. This solution is due to the fact that many functions can be controlled through sound commands. Therefore, load the steering column was not meaningful.

The salon fully corresponds to the model class and its price. As was noted earlier, a very interesting and maximally informative instrument panel is immediately evident. Similar designs are already installed on the younger models, but they look much simpler.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

The new model Audi A7 in 2018  should be really new and technological. When creating this car used platform MLB Evo, which provides for the presence of four suspension configurations. The technical features of the new offer include the following:

The car can be installed several different suspensions. The most expensive offer will be a pneumatic design that will allow you to adjust the level of the ride height. Despite the fact that for a while there was a negative attitude towards pneumatics, today it began to meet very often. The basic version should be represented by a spring construction, in addition it can install a sports version with a reduced ground clearance. As for the pneumatic design, they can come with conventional shock absorbers or electric ones.
Among the standard turbocharged diesel and petrol engines a hybrid version should be noted. It will be based on a lithium battery, as well as a starter-generator. Energy will accumulate when the car is running down or at the moment of braking.

But already now it is guaranteed there is an autonomous parking-man (the car can be driven into the garage from the smartphone).

In addition, the new Audi A7 2018 is equipped with an adaptive steering system with a “sport ratio”, and for an additional fee you can order a fully-controlled chassis, which allows the rear wheels to rotate by 5 degrees.
