Audi A7 Review

If you haven't already guessed we are sort of car fanatics around here and that may be putting it lightly. We are also fans of Audi and the continued technology and level of product they bring to the market. One of our favourite cars to hit our lot recently is the Audi A7!

The all-wheel-drive A7 is no slouch, hitting 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and clocking a 13.2-sec. quarter mile. And consider this: Back in the mid-1990s, a Ferrari F355 Berlinetta ran to 60 mph in 4.9 sec. and to the quarter mile in 13.3 sec. Not only is the F355 slower than the A7, it doesn't have four doors, it can't seat four comfortably, and nor does it have a motorized hatch. To put it simply, this car handles extremely well. The rate of acceleration and braking is spot on, and passing in both expressway and two-lane situations is effortless. 

As handsome as the A7 is on the outside, it also excels on the inside. The modern head- and taillight design and clean body lines complement the comfortable and well-thought-out cabin that's wrapped in beautiful leather. A highlight is the appearance of the wood trim whose grain shows through. Not overly processed, it looks great.

The Audi A7 is a simply gorgeous car that breaks boundaries and oozes luxury.
As far as technology goes, this A7 is chock-full of it. The hidden display that pops up when started features navigation with satellite imagery from Google Earth. The front and rear sensors with notification graphics that pop up onscreen are also accommodating, as is the blind-spot assist and the backup camera.
