Features that can possibly be charming to your pragmatic side include a handy hatchback trunk, exceptional interior room, and a refined performance.

2018 Audi A7 USA Release Date & Price
As we await the verdict of Audi concerning when the A7 will be available and for how much, my crystal ball tells me – of course after a vigorous research involving spying and etcetera – the new 2018 Audi A7 release should be expected sometime in the second half of 2018 with the base going for sale for an MSRP starting from $68,000. Leasing is another option.
Judging from our previous glowing review of the existing model – 2016 Audi A7 – last year, it’s difficult to foresee how the new 2018 A7 may be better. Audi however says that the new model comes with several changes spanning across several facets that it is banking on to help rejuvenate sleek hatchback luxury sedan anyway. Indeed, the newest of the Audi A7 breed comes with a souped-up exterior and interior that is sure to impress even the meanest critique, if any.
The LEDs (headlights, taillights, and running lights) have all been reworked and are now sleek, and evoke a sense of exclusivity in this styling-obsessed segment. The trapezoidal grille is also sharper than before. The 2018 Audi A7 interior, on the other end, gains several additions and updates including an upgraded MMI infotainment system that now has a faster response time and better graphics. Additional USB ports have been offered, too.
Beneath the hood, the new Audi A7 2018 comes with a potent supercharged 3.0L V6 and a turbo-diesel 3.0L v6 engine. The former comes with a familiar output rated at 333 horsepower and 325 lbs. ft. of torque while the latter offers 240 horsepower and a stonking 428 pounds-feet of torque. yet, even despite the amazing output figures, the A7 still manages to offer respectable fuel economy ratings which the EPA says stand at around 25/38/30 mpg in the city/highway/combined for the A7 TDI engine, and 20/30/24 mpg for the A7 3.0T models.
Although subjective depending on the way you see it, the Audi A7 is difficult to resist despite the fact that no car is a no-brainer in this prestigious class. Some of the alternatives you check out include the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, Porsche Panamera Gran Coupe, and the BMW 6 Series.
