Overview

What's New


The 2021 Audi A7 enters the new model year with new 20-inch wheels on the base model and adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist on the Premium Plus trim. But the major news is the introduction of a new plug-in hybrid powertrain, which brings more power and better fuel economy over the base V6 engine. With the flexibility of 24 miles of electric range, the new plug-in hybrid powertrain adds another dimension to the midsize sedan.

Choosing Your Audi A7

The A7 is available in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Prices start at $70,245 including destination for the Premium model and go up to $79,395 for the range-topping Prestige model.

Engine Choices

With the addition of the plug-in, the A7 is now available with two powertrains. A 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine is standard on all three trims. The plug-in hybrid powertrain, which consists of a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a 14.1-kWh battery, is available on the top two trims for $550 (Premium Plus) or $1,900 (Prestige).

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.oL Turbo V6335 hp369 lb-ft24 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder Plug-In Hybrid362 hp369 lb-ft29 mpg

Both powertrains utilize a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and have Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.

With roughly the same performance, better fuel economy, and the ability to travel an EPA-estimated 24 miles on electricity, the plug-in hybrid powertrain is worth the upgrade.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The A7 has seating for up to five passengers. Thanks to its unorthodox hatchback body style, it offers 24.9 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s more than what you’ll find in any of the A7’s main competitors.

Cargo capacity drops to 21.6 cubic feet in hybrid models.

Safety Features

Standard safety features on the A7 include automatic emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, and lane departure warning.

The Premium Plus and Prestige further get adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a surround-view camera, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. These features are available on the base model through the $1,500 Convenience Package.

Connectivity

A dual-screen setup is standard for the A7. The base Premium trim comes with an 8.8-inch top screen and an 8.6-inch unit for the lower screen. Navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and Amazon Alexa are also included.

The Premium Plus trim brings a larger 10.1-inch upper screen, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit system with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, wireless smartphone charging, and a Bang and Olufsen audio system. The Prestige trim includes a head-up display.

Premium - From $70,245

The base Premium trim certainly isn’t cheap, but you do get a lot of features for your money. Full LED headlights and taillights, 20-inch wheels, a power tailgate, and a panoramic sunroof are standard exterior features.

On the inside, the A7 Premium comes with three-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The A7 is also one of the few vehicles to come with a built-in toll module.

The Convenience Package costs $1,500 and brings a heated steering wheel, the wireless charger, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, the 10.1-inch upper touchscreen, and a surround-view camera – which combine to make this an excellent and value-packed upgrade.

Premium Plus - From $75,395

The Premium Plus mostly adds more standard safety and technology features. It's equipped with the 10.1-inch touchscreen, 12.3-inch driver display, wireless phone charger, Bang and Olufsen audio system, surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring.

The $1,750 Executive Package brings even more opulence to the Premium Plus model. Features include four-zone automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, ambient interior lighting, and four-way lumbar support for the front passenger seat.

Prestige - From $79,395

As the range-topping trim, the Prestige has everything Audi offers as standard. Four-zone automatic climate control, ambient interior lighting, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and the head-up display are standard.

The $2,750 Luxury Package is unique to the Prestige trim. It adds memory settings for the front passenger seat, front massaging seats, Valcona and Milano leather upholstery, and individual contour front seats.

CarsDirect Tip

With plenty of standard features, the 2021 Audi A7 Premium is the best starting point for the majority of consumers. Unfortunately, it’s not available with the plug-in hybrid powertrain. So, if you want that, the Premium Plus trim is the way to go.

Drop-dead gorgeous looks. We’re all gaga over the handsome canvas of the 2021 Audi A7. It advances its four-door coupe tapestry in a very pleasing manner for a design that's held up well.

Audi designs are nearly universally the same, with some differences in grille mesh, cut-outs, and rooflines. Our focus on the A7 draws attention to how the roof intersects with the beltline to form its liftgate.

The bonus, of course, is the huge cargo area, measuring nearly 25 cubic feet. Hatchbacks were once the ugly child of the automotive world. Audi’s designers figured out a way to make them fetching.

A peerless cabin. Audi scores high in all matters of interior layout, quality of materials used, comfort, and luxury. One of its most noteworthy attributes is that it isn’t difficult entering and leaving. We’ve slipped inside sedans that require heads bowed to get in; invariably, we banged them time and again. Not so with the A7.

The front seats are snug, power-controlled, and all-day comfortable. That’s just the base model. Various upgrades include 12- or 18-way adjustments, ventilation, and massaging. The rear seat is comfortable for two and bearable for three.

Despite the reclining roofline, the head room is adequate. The only demerit we assigned is for the lowered sight lines in the back. Up front, they’re excellent.

Audi sets the bar in all things fit and finish, which is superb. Carefully chosen and quality materials, a soothing design, and an airy cabin blend elegance with sophistication.


Audi A7

Lots of amenities for the choosing. The A7 comes well equipped with the comfort and tech features we love. With a starting price just over $70,000, that’s just expected.

Audi kicks things off with standard 20-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, a full leather interior, and heated front seats. On the tech side of things, the dual touch-screen display is a sight to behold. The 8.8-inch upper screen manages infotainment, while the 8.6-inch lower screen governs climate control.

Upgrading to the Premium Plus brings in a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch upper screen. Audi’s touchscreens supply a crisp look and are among the best we’ve seen from a luxury marque. This trim also features a premium audio system and a surround-view camera system.

Two boosted V6 engines for the choosing. Like many other Audi models, this one is divided between A7 and S7 camps, the latter representing the sporty side of the equation. A third option, the RS 7, is for the extreme performance camp.

The base 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine is no slouch – it delivers 335 horsepower and works with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Power shuttles to all four wheels, supplying the A7 with wonderful handling. That’s no surprise, as its quattro all-wheel-drive system has evolved wonderfully over four decades.

You’ll find a four-wheel independent suspension that’s upgradable to active dampers or a sport arrangement. Regardless, the standard summer tires with the sport package supply excellent grip. Consider upgrading to four-wheel steering and a rear sport differential for the complete package.

The S7 comes with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 that throws down 444 hp and works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Audi shares this engine with Porsche, thus its pedigree is unquestionably magnificent. It comes with a rear sport differential.

Final thoughts. We think the 2021 Audi A7 is a great package, but if you opt for the potent S7 we understand. The middle of the three A7 trims, Premium Plus, is where we’d shop.

This trim offers the essential comfort items and tech upgrades most buyers want. You can do without the soft-close doors on the top-trim Prestige.
