    German luxury automaker Audi has revealed the second generation A7 Sportsback. Representing the latest era of Audi design, the four-door Coupé gets uplifted powertrain, technology and features as compared to the previous generation car. Measuring 4969mm in length, 1908mm in width, 1422mm in height with a wheelbase of 2926mm, the next gen Audi A7 Sportsback is all set to rival the newly launched BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo and upcoming Mercedes-Benz CLS.

     

    The next gen Audi A7 Sportsback carries the overall design elements from the first-gen Audi A7, while the fascia has been inspired by Audi A8. The fascia gets cascading grille and sleek headlamps along with Matrix-LED headlights with Audi laser unit. Also noticeable is an integrated spoiler which automatically deploys at 120kmph. The flat light strip tail lights seen on Audi’s all top models can also be seen at the rear of the A7 Sportsback. Other than this, the LED strip is made up of 13 vertical segments with dynamic lighting signatures and the customers can choose from 15 exterior colors out of which 8 are all-new. The S- variant of the Sportsback Coupe also gets a redesigned grille and air dams with rear diffusers to make it look sportier as its name.

     

    At the interior, the centre console is oriented towards the driver, emphasizing the Gran Turismo’s sporty character and comes characterized by four key values: progressiveness, sportiness, intuitiveness and sophistication. Making it more interesting is the10.1-inch upper display, tilted toward the driver and almost disappears into the dashboard when switched off. The display’s user interface appears as soon as the car is opened. There is a mixture of black panels, graphite grey aluminium inputs and beige all around the cabin. The instrument cluster is a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit and offers a long list of connectivity features as well. AI features for remote parking, 39 driver assistance systems with improved control mechanics as well as introduction of rear-wheel steering for the first time are the other noticeable and premium highlights of the upcoming coupe.

     

    Powering the next gen Audi A7 Sportsback is the 3.0-litre V6 TFSI petrol engine producing 340bhp of power and 500Nm of peak torque while the transmission duties will be performed by is a seven-speed S-Tronic twin-clutch unit. The motor has the capacity to reach 0-100kmph sprint in 5.3seconds with a top speed of 250kmph. Also on offer is the 48-volt mild hybrid system from A8. Other than these more four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engine options will also be there as engine option later.

    Produced at the Neckarsulm facility in Germany, the advanced bookings for the second generation Audi A7 Sportsback will open in early 2018 with an estimated price of 62,225 euros. While the German launch is scheduled in February 2018, the Australian launch is expected to follow in late 2018. However, there is no confirmation about the coupe coming to India but the way Audi has been introducing their models aggressively, we can expect the Indian launch to take place soon after the Australian launch.
