Unveiled in Europe at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the A7 is designed to bring the spaciousness of a sedan, versatility of a Sportback and a coupe exterior design.

The second-generation model builds on the first A7 with a new design language for the exterior as well as improved space and more comfortable seating for rear passengers, with increased head room and leg room over the previous generation. It also features exterior lighting updates and a revised interior.

An all-new MMI infotainment system – recently debuted in the A8 – also features and brings a new touchscreen with haptic feedback, which replaces the rotary dial and the conventional buttons and controls of the previous model.

Engine line-up includes a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine with 340hp and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, with the rest of the line-up yet to be announced.
