We’ll see the A7 in autumn 2009 ahead of a showroom debut in 2010. It’s based on the next-gen A6 vehicle architecture, which means a new lightweight aluminium structure that uses steel reinforcements to cut weight. Our sources suggest it’ll be 4900mm long.
As you’d hope with something that long, the A7 is a four-seater – but you’ll buy one for its swoopy looks rather than roomy pews. Audi expects to flog around 40,000 copies a year once sales are in full swing.
