What's New

The 2020 Audi A7 is riding high on last year's update, which means that this year’s model sees few changes. Mechanically, the new model is exactly the same, but the base model now comes standard with lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors.

The mid-range Premium Plus trim gets Audi's Virtual Cockpit Plus system and a heated steering wheel standard, while the range-topping Prestige adds heated rear seats, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist.

Choosing Your Audi A7

The A7 comes in Audi’s usual choice of three trims: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Pricing starts at $69,995 including destination for the Premium and rises to $80,695 for the Prestige.

Engine Choices

The Audi A7 comes with only one engine choice, but it's a sophisticated one. The 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 makes 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to send power to all four wheels.

Complementing the engine is a 48-volt mild hybrid system. The electrical boost helps smooth out the stop-start function of the engine and provides a small torque boost.

The A7 is EPA-rated at 22 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 24 combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The A7’s unconventional shape seats five in comfort. The new generation has a longer wheelbase for extra legroom, although the sloping roofline may cut into headroom for tall rear passengers.

Also thanks to the shape, the A7’s hatchback cargo hold will take up to 24.9 cubic feet of luggage. That’s stellar for the class, trouncing any sedan from luxury rivals Mercedes-Benz or BMW.

Safety Features

The Audi A7 comes standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.

The Premium Plus adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, vehicle exit warning, and a surround-view camera system. The Prestige is equipped with adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition. These features are available on the Premium Plus through the Driver Assistance Package ($1,750).


The base A7 comes with an impressive pair of infotainment touchscreens, 8.8 inches for the top screen and 8.6 for the lower. The system gets navigation standard, and is compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa, if you’re into shopping on the go.

Stepping up to the Premium Plus trim unlocks an even larger 10.1-inch upper screen, a slick 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and wireless charging. If that’s not enough, the Prestige trim gets a head-up display.

Premium - From $69,995

You wouldn’t know the Premium was a base trim from looking at it. In addition to the twin infotainment screens, the base A7 gets leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels, keyless ignition, three-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, and a power liftgate.

The Convenience Package ($950) bundles wireless charging, a heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Premium Plus - From $74,595

The Premium Plus trim ups the ante in the tech department. The driver gets a flashy 12.3-inch digital display, while passengers enjoy premium sound courtesy of a 16-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system. All of the features from the Premium trim’s Convenience Package come standard.

Heating up the rear seats means adding the Executive Package ($2,000), which also adds ventilated front seats, lumbar adjustment for the front seats, ambient interior lighting, and four-zone climate control.

Prestige - From $80,695

The Prestige gets nearly all of Audi’s considerable safety tech included standard. Those features join soft-close doors, acoustic glass, exclusive headlights, and all the features of the Executive Package. The exterior gains 20-inch rims, and the driver gets a head-up display.

Available on the Prestige is an adaptive suspension with four-wheel steering ($2,500), which gives the A7 the turning radius of a smaller car. More seating upgrades come in the Luxury Package ($3,000), which swathes the interior in Valcona leather and turns the front seats into massage-capable thrones.

Style and substance. Audi gets partial credit for popularizing the fastback shape that's so fashionable among today’s sedans. Nowhere is it on better display than the 2020 Audi A7, which continues to offer an intoxicating blend of beauty, luxury, and practicality.

The A7 received a refresh last year. The new design flows clearly from the old, but it’s sharper and louder, and perhaps a more polarizing look. The lovely sloping roofline is intact, and it’s as eye-catching as ever.

But back to that practicality. The same roofline allows the A7 to wear a hatchback tailgate, giving it 24.9 cubic feet of cargo space. That jumps to 49 cubic feet with the seats folded – a number that puts some SUVs to shame, which is a neat trick in a luxury sedan.

A hybrid … technically. The A7 comes with a single powertrain based around a turbocharged V6. Joining the engine is a 48-volt electrical system, which makes the A7 – technically – a hybrid.

Though the system makes a healthy 335 horsepower, don’t expect true hybrid efficiency. According to the EPA, the A7 only gets 24 miles per gallon combined, which isn't even as good as the (more powerful) Mercedes-Benz CLS 450.

In the Audi’s favor, it comes with standard all-wheel drive. The quattro AWD system is biased toward the rear, but it can send up to 80% of the power forward, boosting the A7’s practicality further. For an all-weather warrior with enough space for ski gear, 24 mpg combined isn’t too shabby.

The A7 is a big car, and it won’t offer the darty fun of smaller sports cars. Still, handling is confident, complemented by a quick-shifting transmission. For an even better experience, add the optional four-wheel steering system, which makes the A7 feel smaller than it is.

How many screens is too many? Audi isn't known for holding back on technology. In the A7, they took the traditional central touchscreen and added another one right below it. In case you’d like some tech with your tech.

The results are impressive but aesthetically mixed. The infotainment system is as modern as any, with full smartphone compatibility and a surprisingly intuitive interface. Still, staring down so much electronic real estate makes the interior feel a touch sterile, even if screens are becoming increasingly common.

The screens also hold safety features like parking sensors and a rearview camera, which join standard safety equipment like automatic emergency braking. The A7 hasn’t been crash tested, but we expect it to live up to the brand’s usual reputation. In this arena, technology is put to good use.

A car to do it all. It isn’t often that a car manages to combine so many attributes under one roof. The A7 is a comfortable luxury cruiser, but it’s also big enough for family duty, adventurous enough for mountain towns … and stylish to boot? That’s a tempting package.

We have some minor quibbles. The biggest is the rear seat, which loses some head room to that lovely roofline. Watch your head on the way in.

But the main barrier to A7 ownership is the price. The A7 may be able to compete with small SUVs, but with a starting price of $70,000, it had better. The middle Premium Plus trim, which gets even larger screens and more advanced safety tech, is our favorite – but it starts at nearly $75,000.

Final thoughts. It’s hard not to like the 2020 Audi A7 for both its beauty and its sheer range. This is a car that’s nice to drive, nice to ride in, nice to use, and nice to look at. Impressive.

But it’s still a luxury buy, and these days that means tough competition. There are the usual competitors in the Mercedes CLS-Class and the BMW 6-Series, but many modern buyers will be tempted away by swoopy crossovers like the (shockingly cheaper) BMW X6.

If you ask us, though, the A7 still wins out on beauty and athleticism. If you can afford the price of entry, it’s hard to imagine being disappointed with it.
