When the first A7 hit the streets back in 2012, it was a revelation. Previously, big hatchbacks were always ostracized by American car buyers – just look at the comical failures of cars like the first 1966 Dodge Charger, the same-era AMC Marlin, or the forgotten flop that was the early-80s Rover SD1. Yet the A7, with its slick design and impressive performance, managed to woo the hearts of a fickle public that's usually exclusively enamored with the tried-and-true three-box design. The 2019 Audi A7 has been entirely redesigned in the hopes to keep this suave hatch just as appealing and head-turning as ever.

What's New for 2019

Though it might not look it at first glance, the A7 is entirely new for 2019.

Audi A7

Choosing Your Audi A7

In a world of 2.0-liter four-cylinders, the standard 3.0-liter V6 is a breath of fresh air for lovers of larger-displacement engines. Last year, this motor had some help from a supercharger; this year, Audi swapped out that belt-driven unit for a more popular turbocharging setup. This change in forced induction nets a small drop in horsepower, but torque jumps up in a big way, with another 44 pound-feet worth of grunt now at the right foot's disposal. Total output for the 2019 motor is 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque; thanks to that extra helping of torque, going from zero to 60 mph now takes just 5.2 seconds.

Augmenting the mechanical workhorse is a 48-volt mild-hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) system. It's compact enough to hide under the rear cargo floor, and helps boost total efficiency while reducing emissions. It can't let the car run purely on electricity, but does control braking regeneration as well as the freewheeling mode, in which the car coasts while the engine is completely off. Fuel economy isn't yet tested by the EPA and Audi has not made any preliminary estimates.

The sole transmission option is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, down a cog from last year. It routes power to Audi's trademark Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Now dubbed Quattro Ultra, this updated system offers more precise control thanks to intelligent, proactive technology that can better anticipate both road conditions and driver demands.

Drivers can also exert more control over the chassis thanks to four available drive select modes: auto, comfort, dynamic, and individual. Each offer a differing blend of firmness, stiffness, and dampening action; individual is a custom setting allows the user to set their own parameters. An available Sport Suspension firms things up across the board and also drops ride height by 20 mm.

The theme of more technology continues into the cabin. There, buyers will find Audi's all-new MMI touchscreen system, which replaces their old dial-and-buttons setup. The two large, high-resolution screens feature precise haptic and acoustical feedback, and control everything from climate control to the stereo to navigation. It also has a handwriting function that can recognize words and letters as written on the touchscreen. Also new is the ability to speak commands and questions, with the system responding appropriately. For instance, audibly ask for directions to the nearest gas station, and the software will respond by automatically pulling up the navigation system with directions already entered.

Surprisingly, most active-safety features are still optional. The only notable standard safety feature is the Audi Pre Sense Basic, which offers vehicle, pedestrian, and cyclist recognition up to speeds of 52 mph and can initiate braking when a collision is imminent.

Standalone options for all trims include rear side airbags, a DVD player, black cloth headliner, and dark brown walnut wood trim. Also available across the board is a 20-inch Wheel Package, as well as a Cold Weather Package that bundles heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.

As of this writing, options pricing isn't available, nor is the 'build your own' configurator up and running. Once pricing information becomes available this page will be updated appropriately.

Sitting at the bottom of the A7 totem pole is the Premium trim, which has a starting price of $68,995 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). Standard features include a seven-inch driver information display, the MMI infotainment system with navigation, a 10-speaker audio system, SiriusXM and HD radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Homelink, Bluetooth, keyless start and entry, hands-free tailgate release, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, parking sensors, tri-zone climate control, a power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, auto-dimming mirrors, heated eight-way power seats, leather upholstery, and ambient LED lighting. Outside, there's LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, a power tailgate, an adaptive rear spoiler, and a panoramic roof.

The Convenience Package bundles a signal booster, inductive charging, auto-dimming, power-folding, and heated side mirrors with memory function, rear cross-traffic alert with blind-spot monitoring, and a rear assist that monitors following traffic. As previously noted, the Cold Weather Package and 20-inch Wheel Package are available.

Premium Plus

At $73,395, the Premium Plus holds down the middle spot of the lineup. Standard features include a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit, MMI navigation plus, larger dual touchscreens, a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, a signal booster, inductive charging, rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view camera, HD headlights with high-beam assist, headlight washers, and power-folding mirrors.

The Cold Weather and 20-inch Wheel Packages are again available. The S-Line Package brings sport-inspired exterior trim, illuminated door-sill inlays, and a sport suspension that includes a 20 mm drop. The Warm Weather Package includes four-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, a power rear-window sunshade, and four-way passenger lumbar adjustment. The Driver Assistance Package bundles adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, lane keeping assist, intersection assistant, and traffic sign recognition. An individual Contour Seating Package offers Valcona leather seating, leather upholstery on the dash, armrests, and center console, heated and ventilated 18-way power seats, and gray birch wood trim.

Audi A7


The top-shelf A7 is the $77,295 Prestige model. Additional standard features over the Premium Plus include a head-up display, laser-light headlights, power soft-closing doors, four-zone climate control, a power rear sunshade, dual-pane acoustic glass, and 12-way heated and ventilated front seats. Optional equipment largely mirrors that available for the Premium Plus, with two additional packages: the 21-inch Wheel Package and an Adaptive Chassis Package that brings adaptive dampers and dynamic all-wheel steering.

CarsDirect Tip

The mid-level Premium Plus is the just-right trim of the 2019 Audi A7 lineup, offering a nice heaping of standard features over the base Premium but not anything needlessly lavish like the Prestige. if you're looking to bring home an A7, start here and option accordingly.

The Audi A7 returns for 2019, and remains one of the most striking vehicles on the road. Built off of the same platform as the A6 sedan, the A7 is in the second model year of its second generation, and continues to set the bar for performance, comfort, and practicality for the luxury car market. It's the definition of a grand-tourer: a car made for traveling at high speeds over long distances while insulating the passengers from the harsh outside world.

Best Value

If we were buying an A7, we would actually have to go with the top Prestige trim level. The top trim and bottom trim are only separated by just over $8,000, and the extra luxury items are worth the money. The Prestige gets ventilated front seats with four-way lumbar control, Audi's "laser" LED headlights, a head-up display, four-zone climate control (that's a zone for each passenger), and power door closers.

Not many packages and options are available at the top trim, but there's one that caught our eye. The Driver Assistance Package is a good add, as it adds a bunch of advanced safety features. With this, your A7 will become a highway-bound equivalent of a private jet: fast, luxurious, and full of technology.

  • Model: 2019 Audi A7 Prestige
  • Engine: 3.0-liter turbocharged V6
  • Output: 340 hp / 369 lb-ft
  • Transmission: Seven-speed dual-clutch automatic
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • MPG: The EPA has not yet released fuel economy information at time of publish
  • Options: Driver Assistance Package ($2,750, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, intersection assistant)
  • Base Price: $77,295 (including the $995 destination charge)
  • Best Value Price:$80,045


Audi A7

While the A7 may not have the raw power of its faster S7 and RS7 brothers, it doesn't lack in the speed department. The turbocharged V6, with the help of the lighting quick seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, gives the A7 the ability to hit 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, which is certainly quick. All-wheel drive helps with acceleration as well, as the power is better distributed across four wheels instead of two.

The A7 is a big car, but it also feels spry. The A7 has a new frame that's both sturdier and lighter, which combined with a sporty suspension allows it to maneuver well in tighter corners. Audi has indicated that there'll eventually be an adaptive suspension for higher models, but it doesn't appear to be available at this time. Likewise, the A7 isn't currently offered in the US with all-wheel steering or a sport differential, but we would expect to see that at some point in the future.


The A7 is easily one of the most attractive cars on the road. The A7's long, sweeping hatch (yes, it's a hatchback) is still downright graceful for this generation, but the front end has been updated to look more chiseled and aggressive. While it's understated in the typical German way, it's still a handsome car with flourishes that catch the eye. Standing out the most are likely the LED headlights and taillights, which will light up whenever the driver locks or unlocks the car. Additionally, the headlights feature an intricate design while the taillights span across the entire rear of the A7. It looks simultaneously like something out of Blade Runner and yet somehow reminiscent of gorgeous pre-war automobiles.

Many carmakers have been chasing Audi's interior design over the past several years, and for a good reason. The new A7 continues to use this upscale yet minimalistic style they've become known for, while putting a huge emphasis on technology. Two large screens control the climate control and infotainment, while on Premium Plus and Prestige trims both utilize the endlessly configurable Audi Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster. When you add the head-up display from the Prestige mode, the A7 feels less like a car and more like a spacecraft. There's also a suite of driver assistance features and a thermal night vision that'll detect animals and people well before your headlights will illuminate them.

While the A7 is sporty, it also remains comfortable with highly adjustable leather seats with available heating and ventilation and an advanced sound system. The rear hatch offers excellent practicality, as you can load more awkward shaped items and with the back seats down the A7 offers 49.1 cubic feet of cargo space which is on par with your average small crossover.

The Best and Worst Things

The greatest thing about the A7 is its design. It looks like nothing else on the road, and yet it doesn't go about it by shouting in your face. It's beautiful and confident, knowing it doesn't have to compensate for anything.

On the other hand, the tapered roof line can make the back seat feel a bit cramped, especially for taller customers. Additionally, at this point we also get the sense that Audi was somewhat behind the ball on the release, as there are many features like the adaptive suspension that we were expecting to be included but are missing on the 2019 model.

Right For? Wrong For?

Audi A7

The A7 would be great for successful empty-nesters who still find themselves driving quite a bit. It soaks up the miles on the highway, while remaining quiet and comfortable. At the same time, it won't feel out of place exploring back roads in the mountains.

If you want something truly fast though, you should probably look for something smaller or more expensive. The A7 has enough power to feel quick, but the S6 is powered by a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 with 450 horsepower. The upcoming S7 will likely feature the same engine, but at a higher price than the A7.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Audi A7 is one of the most unique luxury cars out there, with good looks, solid performance, and surprising practicality. Additionally, it's loaded with technology and feels very futuristic. That being said, next year will probably include even more features at a similar price point, so it may make sense to give it a year before you run out and buy one.
