The A7’s standard powertrain is a turbocharged V-6 that makes 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. That power is delivered to Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The A7’s standard V-6 powertrain also uses a 48-volt hybrid-assist system that minimizes turbo lag and aids stop/start operation. During everyday driving, we appreciated the Audi’s effortless quickness. Its sophisticated all-wheel-drive system provided excellent traction in wet and dry conditions. The automatic transmission intelligently reacted to both relaxed and energetic throttle inputs. If you’re looking for something with electric-only driving capability, you’ll need to upgrade to the new plug-in hybrid model, which makes 362 horsepower from its combination of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and onboard electric motor. We haven’t had the chance to test this model yet, but we’ve spent plenty of time with the standard V-6. Audi expertly blends luxury and agility on the A7. Its enthusiastic responses and ethereal ride quality immediately stood out while we were behind the wheel. Despite our test car’s optional 21-inch wheels, the expected thuds from harsh impacts went virtually unnoticed. Its supple suspension was equally successful at limiting body motions and maximizing smoothness. The steering response was linear, with adjustable heft available in different drive modes, but it never communicated what the front wheels were doing. The two A7 models we tested had impressive stopping power, with emergency braking distances of 157 feet and 163 feet.
With all that being said, this Audi A7 paired wonderfully with our Brixton Forged 20″ PF10 Ultrasport+ wheels finished in Firecracker Black (Satin).
