The 2014 Audi A7 is the type of car that deserves a triple-take when you drive it down the road. Its sporty, aggressive styling and unbelievable power make this car almost too much fun to drive. The 2014 A7 brought minimal changes with it and kept the same characteristic exterior that Audi vehicles are known for. The 2014 Audi A7 has become a favorite in the luxury sedan market thanks to its amazing features and handsome looks.



Audi had declared war when it introduced the redesigned A7 to the market, bringing amazing power and great looks to a whole new level. The A7 makes up for about 9% of Audi’s international car sales, it’s not a lot but its one of their premium models. The 2014 Audi A7 is a sporty, four-door coupe that is also available with a diesel engine which outperforms several American sport coupes.

The first thing you really notice with the Audi A7 is that it’s drop dead gorgeous. However, the beauty here isn’t just with the sleek styling and finely tailored interior. The proof is in the car’s superb engineering. While the 2014 A7’s standard 3.0-litre six-cylinder supercharged engine is fast and thrifty, the 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine is the most fuel-efficient powertrain available for the car.

The diesel engine offers a strong 428 pound-feet of torque and pulls like a freight train. It is one of the most refined and unobtrusive diesel engines that are available on the market. The ride is also smooth and quiet, with just a tad of rattle and idle.

The rear seats in the 2014 Audio A7 offer ample room and can comfortable seat a full size adult. The hatchback design is useful as it provides more than enough cargo area, especially when you drop down the back seats. However, the slick back styling of the car seriously hurts rear visibility.

The seats inside the 2014 A7 are extremely comfortable and provide a firm seat. Once you get inside, it’s impossible to notice the A7’s impeccable fit and finish and attention to detail. The tasteful leather seats and large wood trim throughout the car are high quality and make the interior look and feel extremely luxurious.

The infotainment system inside the 2014 Audi A7 is wonderful but very intricate. The controls are a bit confusing and there are a lot of them. At least the system features many more buttons then other systems available in other luxury sedans which makes it a bit more predictable.

Power and Performance:

Powerful and distinctive are words that describe the Audi A7's styling, but they're apt also for its performance. Smoothly paired engines and transmissions let it build speed with a tremendous sense of confidence. It's engaging, even before you get to the S7 and RS 7 power rangers.

The standard engine in the A7 is Audi's 3.0-liter supercharged V-6. In the hatchback, it's rated at 310 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. In practice, it's a gutsy powerplant that's been muted from its first applications. Lots of low-end torque helps it accelerate the A7 to 60 mph in about 5.4 seconds, while it also achieves up to 8.4 L/100km on the EPA's highway cycle. It's that kind of versatility that's flattering to the A7's good looks, and vice versa.

For 2014, Audi's fine 3.0-litre turbodiesel six is the high-economy alternative. Just about as quick as the gas-powered six, the turbodiesel has the typically tight powerband and more noise and vibration. They're more than offset by a sky-high EPA highway number of 38 mpg, and a combined rating of 29 mpg--even with standard all-wheel drive. With so little performance distinction between it and the gas-powered six, the difference comes down more to price and preference. As with the other six-cylinder, stop/start is standard, and can induce a shiver in the cabin as the engine fires back up after a pause. Stop/start can be disabled via a dash-mounted button.

The Audi A7 is a mid-size car with plenty of luxury gear tucked inside--including standard all-wheel-drive. With that on background, the EPA's gas-mileage ratings for the standard supercharged V-6 edition are in line with expectations, at 13.1 L/100km city, 8.4 L/100k highway, and 11.2 L/100km combined.

For the best fuel economy of its kind, however, you'll want to saddle up the new A7 TDI. Its exemplary EPA ratings of  9.8 L/100km city, 6.2 L/100km highway, 8.11 L/100km combined outscore one of its main rivals, the Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC, which is rated at 7.13 L/100km highway.

Interiors and Special Features:

The A7's interior is typical Audi, which means both handsomely designed and tightly constructed, with excellent materials quality evident throughout. Audi's familiar Multi Media Interface system (MMI) controls entertainment, communication and navigation functions via a dash-mounted pop-up screen and a knob and buttons on the center console. The system boasts logical menus, crisp graphics and a touchpad to increase functionality, although we still prefer BMW's iDrive or Mercedes' COMAND for overall ease of use.

The A7 is also equipped with the Audi Connect Internet suite, which includes in-car 3G WiFi, Google Earth data for the navigation system and simplified Google search for POIs. It sounds a bit over the top, but proves very handy if you need to get some work done on the road and there's no Starbucks in sight. However, the Google Earth feature is an example of form over function, as the "enhanced" map can be more difficult to comprehend at a glance than a conventional navigation map.

Due to the A7's aggressively raked roof line, backseat headroom is tight, even for adults of average height. Legroom is adequate, however, and the newly standard three-across seating raises passenger capacity to five in a pinch. The A7's hatchback design enables easy loading of luggage and larger items that might not fit in the trunk of a conventional sedan. Official cargo capacity is 24.5 cubic feet, but lowering the rear seatbacks increases that volume significantly.

Safety features:

Standard safety equipment on the 2014 Audi A7 includes antilock disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. Rear side airbags, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning/keeping assist and a blind-spot warning system are either optional or included with the upper trims.

The standard Audi Pre-Sense system can warn the driver, tension the seatbelts and close the windows if a potential collision is detected, while the optional Audi Pre-Sense Plus system can do all that, plus fully tighten the seatbelts and automatically apply the brakes full force to mitigate the severity of an imminent crash. The A7's Prestige trim also comes with Audi Pre-Sense Rear, which uses the brake light to warn traffic behind the vehicle in the event of a rear collision, employing additional preventive protective measures should the situation turn critical.

In Edmunds brake testing, an A7 Prestige with 20-inch wheels and summer tires came to a stop from 60 mph in 106 feet. That's impressive even for summer tires; expect a longer distance for the regular tires and smaller wheels.
