Audi launches redesigned A7 Sportback

German luxury car maker Audi has upgraded its A7 Sportback by improving performance and introducing a new range of built-in technologies, while retaining the car's sophistication and comfort. If everything goes according to plan, the five-door coupe will arrive on showroom floors this summer.

The new model is based on the original Audi A7 Sportback, which was launched four years ago. It has been redesigned with a new front bumper and grille and is fitted with LED headlights, which now come as a standard feature.

Thanks to the utilisation of aluminium in the bodywork, the new model is also lighter. As far as space is concerned, the boot can accommodate 535 litres, which can be expanded to a quite sizeable 1,390 litres with the rear seats down. Aluminium has also been used in the car's interior, which also makes use of upmarket materials such as Valcona leather and walnut inlays.

For improved comfort, the passenger and driver seats can be ordered with an optional massage function and ventilation. Another optional extra is a head-up display system. The car also features driver assistance systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Audi Active Lane and Audi Side Assist.

The new model comes with a choice of three TDI diesel engines and 2 TFSI fuel engines, with power outputs ranging between 218bhp and 333bhp. The 218bhp V6 3.0-litre TDI engine boasts fuel consumption of just 4.7l/100km and CO2 emissions in the region of 122g/km.

The A7 Sportback is also fitted with a top quality Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound audio system.
