Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
For a five-door coupé with a steeply sloping roof, interior space isn't too bad at all. A pair of tall adults will have no problem with the room offered in the front, while another two six-footers will be able to sit behind without their knees pressing against the front seatbacks.
Particularly tall folk will find their hair just brushing the roof lining, though. The Mercedes CLS is very similar in this respect, and as both cars are only really good for two adults in the rear, the even more capacious BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is the one to go for if you regularly need to carry three rear passengers.
Storage space in the A7 for all your odds and ends is pretty good. You’ll find the usual array of cupholders, door bins, cubbies and a good-sized glovebox. However, due to the large lower touchscreen, there are no storage spots in front of the gear selector for you to put your phone and keys. Those will have to be either relegated to the cupholders or locked away under the centre armrest.
