The new 2018 Audi A7 Premium Plus not only delivers the automaker’s newest design language made by the prologue studies but also represents the new Audi design language. Also, when it comes to progressiveness, the new four-door A7 sets the benchmark standards in the luxury segment.
Thanks to a sporty driving experience, systematic digitization, and a new fresh style of Gran Turismo, the latest Audi A7 Premium Plus comes fully equipped to take its arch rivals head on. Talking of rivals, most formidable for the A7 include the C-Class and the Panamera sedans.
The exterior design of the latest model is as a result of the prologue study that first debuted in the A8. The lines are athletic, the edges are sharp and taut, and the surfaces are perfectly sculpted for optimum aerodynamics. Needless to say, the new Audi A7 design signals progressiveness.

The exterior isn’t the only area that Audi majored in during the 2018 redesign, the interior too dazzles with style, creature comforts, and a futuristic lounge atmosphere. Four key values characterize the interior concept – sophistication, intuitiveness, sportiness, and progressiveness. The Audi A7 interior is based on a one-of-a-kind balance of coolness and tension thanks to a reduced, clean design language.
Beneath the hood, the new Audi A7 is set to initially launch with a sonorously understated 3.0L V6 TFSI engine capable of churning out an incredible 340 horsepower. With this much power being produced under the hood, the A7 should be able to zoom from 0-62mph in just 5.3 seconds. The top speed is 155mph.
This midsize luxury car that the automaker dubs “Sportback” due to the hatchback cargo area comes in two trim levels – Premium Plus and Prestige. The Prestige is the top-of-the-line model and costs an MSRP starting from $78,375. The Premium Plus – the car under review – is the “barebones” model beginning from $71,000. The prices have changed slightly from their previous iterations by around 3K and 6K for the Premium Plus and Prestige models respectively.

And for more personalization there’s the massage functionality provided by the multi-contour seats.
As expected, the cabin is utterly gorgeous and plastered with quality materials on its surfaces. Although the leather mightn’t be the supplest, it is generously provided on almost every surface. The center stack isn’t cluttered. The stalks, buttons, and knobs move with a lovely fluidity and engage with a pleasing click.
