2013 Audi A7 Review

New For 2013

In addition to the new S7, there are minor updates to the standard A7. Auto stop/start helps save a bit of fuel in the city; lane-keep assist is now available; a corner-view camera helps when pulling out from between cars; and a third seatbelt is available for the rear seat.


You don’t buy an A7 for rational reasons; it’s mechanically identical to an A6 but costs thousands more. With the A7, it’s all about the design. This low-slung machine is visually arresting. That radically sloping rear end hides a practical hatchback, so there’s an extra measure of utility, but the rear seats are much more intimate than those of the traditionally shaped A6. Standard rear seating is for two; a set of seatbelts for the middle position can be had, but that hardly makes the middle position any more habitable. Otherwise, this interior mirrors that of the A6, and a finely crafted cabin it is. The infotainment system can incorporate Google Earth images and uses Audi’s touch pad, which allows you to spell out navigation destinations with your finger (this is not only cool but also less distracting than other methods). Because the A7 is a more upscale offering than the A6, there’s no four-cylinder engine here, and Quattro is standard. The supercharged, 3.0-liter V-6 and a velvet-smooth eight-speed automatic are sufficient to shoot this gorgeous missile from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. If that’s not quick enough, there’s the new S7, with a twin-turbocharged V-8, a quicker-shifting seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic gearbox with shift paddles, and an upgraded chassis. Do you need the S7? No. But might you want it? Oh, yeah.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; traction and stability control; and ABS are standard. Rear side air bags, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, a corner-view camera, adaptive headlights, Audi Pre Sense Plus, lane-keep assist, and infrared night vision with pedestrian detection and a head-up display are optional.

2013 Audi A7 Left Front Angle
A lot of the news coming out of Europe about the automotive industry over the past 12 months has been about plant closures, layoffs, and other generally negative developments. But not for Audi. The brand has seen such strong demand for its A6 and A7 models, that it has already added 12 shifts at its Neckarsulm, Germany plant, which builds the models, and is planning on adding even more shifts in April to keep up with worldwide demand, Bloomberg reports.
Audi Piloted Driving Demo 1
Audi used the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to demonstrate two features designed to take over from a human driver when he or she doesn't feel like driving.
