Audi has introduced some significant changes to its A7 5-door. A new 3.0L clean-diesel TDI joins the 3.0T in the lineup, powered by a direct-injected turbocharged V6 producing 240 hp and 428 ft-lb of torque. The car promises an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city and 38 mpg on the highway. Both A7 models are now 5-seaters, and each starts at the Premium Plus equipment level. The powerful S7 remains a 4-seater. Joining the lineup above the S7 is the all-new RS7. Its 560-hp 4.0L V8 makes it the most powerful RS model to date, and can scoot the sleet 5-door to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Finally, an available Black Optic and bicolor package for the A7 and S7 features a black optic grille with high-gloss surround and gloss-black window surround.

From a design standpoint, the Audi A7 is a standout in the market; while competitors such as the Acura ZDX and BMW 5-Series GranTurismo come close, the A7 is the least "SUV" in this segment. 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 many rival models; and the 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.
