The most recent A7 is built on the Volkswagen Group’s MLB II-Evo platform, which it shares with other new models consisting of the Q7 and Q5 SUVs. By utilizing lighter and stiffer products, engineers have included a half-inch to its wheelbase, though overall length is down partially and height hasn’t altered at all.
The chiseled make overs reach the cabin, where digital screens control and difficult buttons have taken a back seat. The new A7 sheds Audi’s old infotainment roller-knob system for one that relies on voice commands and wide touchscreens– a 10.1-inch panel that displays maps and other functions, and a secondary 8.6-inch screen that displays environment functions, drive modes, and accepts handwritten input. On some models, a 12.3-inch reconfigurable display screen swaps in where evaluates would otherwise fit. That driver-focused screen delivers a host of details, from navigation maps to infotainment functions.

For power, Audi will depend on a series of engines in the new 2019 A7. At launch, all U.S.-market cars will feature a single-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 with 340 horse power.

Future S7 models will likely sport a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6, while a V-8-powered RS 7 may make a return.
An independent suspension and all-wheel drive will be complemented by brand-new technology such as rear-wheel steering, which can call in up to 5 degrees of countersteer to the rear wheels at parking-lot speeds to help the A7 corner more effectively. The countersteer is called down and out as the A7 reaches greater speeds.

The hatchback will follow Audi’s A8 sedan with Level 3 autonomous ability, which implies its Traffic Jam Pilot will be able to manage the car without chauffeur input at speeds of as much as 37 mph.
