2013 Audi A7 Coupe

The practicality of a sedan with the tailoring of a coupe, this is Audi’s latest trend-setter in style, design and performance- the Audi A7. Built upon the highly rated A6 sedan, Audi continues to deliver a well-equipped interior and an abundance of state-of-the-art features that have become as synonymous with the brand as its iconic “4-rings”. Coming off its rookie year of production, the A7 shows no signs of having a sophomore slump. 

For 2013 the sedan’s low, sweeping profile produces a uniquely shaped roof-line that continues to remain the vehicle’s signature feature. Even though this body style is relatively new, the competition is fierce from the likes of the Mercedes-Benz luxury CLS-Class and the sportier BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. As is expected, Audi ushers in 2013 with a considerable amount of safety, performance and tech heavy features.

Sleek, safe and unmistakably Audi with its hallmark LED running lights, this car is more than just good-looking. On the road it owes its speed and handling to a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 engine and the automaker’s Quattro® eight-speed Tiptronic® transmission. Working in tandem, the A7 can hit 60 mph in a mere 5.4 seconds with top speeds of 130 mph. With standard equipped 18-inch wheels and adjustable driver settings including “Comfort” and “Dynamic,” the A7 delivers a solid drive in most every condition.

The sweeping exterior of the A7 extends inside, where the view of the road is even better from the luxuriously appointed inner cabin. The sophisticated design of the dashboard, navigation and controls is as impressive as Audi’s industry-first, factory installed, wireless Internet. The latter serves as the hub for the car’s infotainment suite, known as Audi Connect, which is managed from the center mounted, 7-inch color display. Twelve-way front leather seats, fine grain wood inlays, and brushed aluminum trim finish off what is one spectacular vehicle both inside and out.
