For The Audi A7 is a great-looking and beautifully built car. It’s superb at devouring motorway miles thanks to its stunning high-speed composure and impressive refinement. Use of aluminium in the body keeps weight, and fuel consumption, down.
Against In spite of the Sportback tag, it’s not especially sporty to drive because the steering is too wishy-washy. The coupé-like roofline limits the space in the boot. Much of the fantastic high-tech equipment is optional.

The Audi A7 Sportback is a super-stylish executive hatch that’s a tech-lover’s dream. It's also economical, and the good looks extend to the beautifully made and well equipped cabin.

Target Price team says:
The pick of the A7 range is the lowest-powered diesel, because it strikes the best balance between performance and economy.
You get lots of equipment with an SE model, so that's what we'd go for. S line versions get snazzier trim, larger wheels and lower, firmer suspension, although they aren't as comfortable as SE models. The optional adaptive suspension is worth having if you can afford the cost; it controls body movements well and makes the high-speed ride pretty smooth in its softest setting.
Finally, don’t take no for an answer when it comes to discounts - there are some big savings to be made on most versions.
