Audi A7 Sportback 2.0 TFSI S-Tronic Review
Svelte seven

Sedans aren’t usually associated with sexiness. That’s a vocabulary usually reserved for coupes. But in the past decade, Germany’s big three have taken to melding these two different classes of vehicles into one. Combining their sex appeal with every day practicality. Mercedes-Benz started the trend with the CLS-Class which then spawned similar models from BMW and Volkswagen.

While nearly all of them combined the main points of ‘sleek and sexy’, none seemed better executed than the Audi A7 that came along. There was an equal measure of graceful sloping lines and a purposeful muscular stance that played off well on the theme. Given its five door hatchback configuration, it was practical too!

Now Audi has introduced an updated model that has been sharped not just in looks but performance as well. Like before, the A7 casts an imposing presence with its long sleek body line that seems to go on for a mile.

The menacing gaze of the new fascia is made up of a new single piece trapezoidal grille finished in chrome. But most noticeable is the redesigned headlights that feature Audi’s matrix LED technology. It lends the new car a rather futuristic edge to its overall look and like the Audi A8L we drove earlier, it comes with the same turn signal that lights up sequentially.
