Audi A7 Sportback: Another driving report

Audi A7 Sportback

We can’t get enough of driving reports with the new Audi A7 Sportback, it’s such a beautiful car.

Built on Audi’s new modular architecture that underpins the company’s forthcoming A6 replacement, the aluminum-paneled A7 Sportback is predictably gorgeous – that is, it breaks little new ground for the brand stylistically, yet it’s still altogether beautiful. The tapered greenhouse and resulting long hatch might throw off a few people, but it’s hard to argue against Audi having done a top job integrating its once-controversial single-frame grille. The A7’s profile nicely pulls along viewers’ eyeballs toward the rear with some well-chosen character lines, and Audi has blessed the car with a range of great-looking alloys, including the 20-inchers seen on our Dakota Gray tester. As with its R8 brethren, a full complement of LEDs can be specified if the standard adaptive Xenon headlamps are somehow deemed inadequate, and there’s an S-Line package available, too (though the standard car doesn’t lack aesthetic oomph).
