Defined as a Sportback, the 2012 Audi A7 radical five-door body style radiates a strong performance image thanks to pronounced wheel arches and standard 18-inch wheels. Exclusively equipped with Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive, the A7 Sportback delivers sports car-like handling supported by the safety of an electronic stability program. For the introductory year of the Audi A7, the car has been matched with a supercharged, direct-injection 3-liter V-6 powerplant. Generating 310 horsepower and 325 pounds-feet of torque, the 2012 Audi A7 sprints from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 5.4 seconds. Thanks to the powerful but efficient engine and an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic, the 2012 A7 Sportback achieves 22 miles per gallon in average fuel economy. Sold in Premium, Premium Plus as well as Prestige trim levels, the 2012 Audi A7 standard features include cruise control, automatic Xenon headlamps, three-zone climate control and a glass sunroof over the four-seat interior.

The A7 is an entirely new model in Audi's lineup, with a coupe-like roofline and an unusual 4-door fastback body style that marries some of the traits of a crossover with those of a station wagon--providing a more distinctive alternative to mid-size luxury sport sedans.
A shape like no other; stunning interior trims and materials; hatchback versatility; responsive handling; comfortable ride; good backseat space; class-leading tech features; advanced navigation system
From a design standpoint, the new Audi A7 is a standout in the market; while vehicles like the Acura ZDX and BMW 5-Series GranTurismo come close, and the Mercedes-Benz CLS is a little more compromised, the A7 has no hint of utility vehicle, and it isn't really any taller than a sedan. Inside the A7 is a paragon of great design, as its cabin feels lush and detailed without being functionally complex. Even so, the A7 is very roomy, with enough space for adults in back. Technologically, the A7 is also near the head of its class. The Google Earth mapping with live updates feels a full generation ahead of the systems in some rival models; and the so-called MMI touch system--bringing a fingertip scratch pad that allows data entry without looking away from the road or focusing on a screen-based pointer, is also revolutionary.
