Introduction

What Car? says...

If you're in a stretched, pink Hummer, bystanders might assume that you're on a hen-do. Sit behind the wheel of a luxury limousine and you're potentially pigeonholed as an airport-bound taxi driver, fetching the CEO of a multi-national business. Which is perhaps one of the biggest reasons to think laterally when it comes to luxury and buy a four or five-door coupé instead, like the Audi A7. 

The A7 has a sumptuous interior that looks and feels much like the one in the larger and more expensive A8. What’s more, just like the A8, the A7’s engines make use of 48-volt mild-hybrid technology, which allows emission-free coasting, energy recuperation under braking, more responsive performance and a smarter stop-start system. There's even a plug-in hybrid version that you can charge at home for up to 25 miles of pure electric driving.

That’s all great news, but the Audi A7 isn't the only coupé with a bit of practically. The Mercedes CLS also cuts a premium dash, while BMW has taken the coupé silhouette to new heights (quite literally) with the 6 Series Gran Turismo.

If it's blistering performance you're after, switch to our bespoke review of the S7 or RS7. Here we're focusing on how the regular Audi A7 drives, what it’s like for passengers and which engines and trims make the most financial sense. And if you fancy buying an A7, don't forget to check out our New Car Buying pages to see how much you could save.
