Yacht On Wheels,Audi A7 Sportback


On March 27, 2020

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption L/100km

But what is it:- inspired by the Audi Sportback Concept of 2009,Audi A7 is on its second generation disguise, with design cues from Audi 100 Coupe S of the seventies albeit it’s third window design that tapers upwards.

Audi A7 designer Sebastiano Russo under leadership of Marc Lichte looked from the past to manifest and pioneer the present ,the hips are made to mimic quattro blisters of the Audi Ur- quattro of the eighties, rear is made flow like the rear of the Yacht.

Low sitting single-frame grille, like all the future Audi cars ,this one with optional black pack that deletes chrome on grille and on window strips to provide that aggressive stealthy look when seeing it from your rear view mirror and the side view.

There’s a light strip that connects the rear lights, whose outer rear lights comprise of 13 segments each, When the doors are unlocked or closed, dynamic lighting animations in the rear lights and headlights pull the show and dances to welcome the driver, beautify light witchcraft.

Headlights are of optional HD Matrix LED with Audi laser light ,activated at speeds from 70 kilometer per hour, that doubles the high beam headlight shine and makes it hard to differentiate night to day due to the range and level of shine, also the Matrix lights bending and blanking the light shine on oncoming traffic avoiding to blind them.


Fitted with optional S line exterior package further offers more sporty look, offering a pronounced front bumper and titanium black air inlets; also the side sills are more strongly pronounced and titanium black diffuser insert on the rear.

The second generation A7 comes as standard with twenty inch alloys, however twenty one inch Audi Sport alloys are added here to offer that extra boss look and low profile stance.

All thanks to the optional fitted dynamic all wheel steering, front wheels will turn at 5 degrees to the opposite direction to the rears resulting to a turning circle worth a metre at speeds less than 60km/h.

Increase the speed to over 60km/h when negotiating a curve the back wheels will turn at 2 degrees to the direction of the front wheels resulting to more steady balance in addition to the standard quattro system.

The inland yacht of almost 5 meters long and 2 meters wide the optional 360 degrees cameras come in handy, I advise you tick that option, trust me that will save you lot of trouble in negotiating confined spaces.


In all 4 corners there’s adaptive air suspension do tick that option for extra cushion of the tarmac, a pleasant drive in bumpy terrain and suspension can be raised up and down for ground clearance working in conjunction with Audi select driver profile technology that lets you choose how the car responds and behaves.


Just like many latest Audi”s this A7 is equipped with 48 Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology that harvest an energy of 12KW and feed it back to the entire car and reduces fuel consumption, as well as eliminating turbo lag.

Competitively enough the Panoramic roof is as standard as well as highly configurable full HD resolution 1,920 x 720 pixels 12.3 inch Audi virtual cockpit that put all things to digital perspective, showing all instrumentation needs as well as navigation.

As standard forming part of 4 screens in this Audi A7 is Haptic feedback response upper screen display & controls the infotainment in 10.1 inches equipped with MMI navigation plus, Audi Phone box as standard as well for charging your mobile.

Lower screen is 8.6-inch display used for the climate control, comfort & convenience functions, text input by handwriting or virtual keyboard, and the last screen is for air circulation pleasure of the rear sitting passengers.

Luggage compartment is a whooping 535Liters when seats standing upright to 1,390 liters volume when laid flat, worthy enough to accommodate and swallow fifty five inch television box.

My unit was loaded with options, over three hundred and twenty four thousand rand worth, inclusive of the night vision technology that will detect animals and people at night, heads up display that projects important information to the screen like navigation and speed.

City assistance package that will see the cars on front and rear and give warning and apply brakes as well as Audi pre-sense in the front, fuel tank increased to 73Liters for Long Gran Touring Distance and water gets sprayed directly from the wipers to the windshield for better effectiveness.

Grey stitched Valcona leather S- Sports Seats electrical powered and with memory to remember you last sitting position , steering electrically powered to be adjusted up and down and telescopic movement.

Everything just scream premium all around with grey stitching on dashboard, door panels mixed with Alcantara and aluminium trims and well as premium leather stitching on centre console.

There’s ambient illumination deployed along all the edges of the dashboard, door panels, and console that can be configured up to 30 colors,Quattro badge on the passenger-side gets Illuminated as well.

But how does it drives?:- powered by 55TFSI engine as per Audi Nomenclature ,which means it’s a 3.0 TFSI petrol V6 engine worth 250KW/500NM of torque and 14KG less than the engine of the first Generation A7, mated to 7 speed smooth shifting S-Tronic gearbox.

The thing is A7 is not designed to be a hooligan but a Gran Tourer family to business machine however it’s not a slouch,it can catapult 0 to 100 km/h in manufacturer claimed 5.3 seconds.

For a car that size, those are impressive numbers, the A7 is respect attracting pleasure machine, value for money in tech offering more for less compared to its direct rival standardly speaking.

Easy to drive and live with, quiet cabin with generous legroom and boot space to cater for family and business needs, handling is controlled and responsive like a grand tourer should be, its 2019 World Luxury Car Winner in World car awards anyway, worth a buy in its segment and niche market.

Audi A7 drives as good as it looks

The Audi A7 was launched back in 2012 and it was Audis answer to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, a four-door coupe.
