Audi A7 Sportback: Driving report

Audi A7 Sportback

Nice driving report here with the new Audi A7 Sportback.

The car is, on the whole, quite good: it drives like a much smaller, lighter car, it’s eminently comfortable, and, perhaps most importantly, it looks incredible.

The Web often does injustice to a car, making it looks worse than it does in person. While the A7 carries itself well in pixels, it’s all the more impressive in person. Unlike the vast majority of the long-back semi-hatch sedans on the market, there’s nothing awkward, lumpy, or fat-bottomed about the A7. The proportions just work.

Behind the wheel, you get a sense that the 310-horsepower supercharged V-6 is almost a perfect analogue for the V-8s of just a few years ago. It pulls like a superlux bullet train, willingly ripping through the gears on its way to a 5.4-second 0-60 mph time.
