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.
