The Audi A7 marked Audi’s return to the executive hatchback market since the 1970 three-door Audi 100 Coupe and the 1977 Audi 100 Avant. It debuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, but was launched in the USA at last years New York International Auto Show as a 2012 model.
“When automakers begin development on a new model, there are typically three or more competing design proposals, one of which is then chosen to make it into metal. This standard operating procedure was discarded with the Audi A7 Sportback, says Audi boss Rupert Stadler: “Everything was right in the first place.” Indeed, this large hatchback could be the most beautiful of all Audis. Long, wide, and low, it’s styled with smooth and supremely clean lines. ” (caranddriver.com) The interior feels more like a cockpit than a driver’s seat thanks to a high center console and an array of clear and crisp instrumentation.
