Which used Audi A7 hatchback should I buy?
Unless you needed the economy offered by the 3.0 TDI 218 Ultra, we’d opt for a quattro four-wheel drive version with the same engine. It’s smooth and flexible and still reasonably frugal. The 3.0 TDI 272 is seriously rapid, mind you, as is the 3.0 Bi-turbo model. If you can find a good used one of these and can afford to run it we wouldn’t blame you if you took the plunge. You’ll need deep pockets to run the S7 and the RS7 versions, although the speed might just prove exhilarating enough to make it worth it.
There are three main trim levels to choose from - SE Executive, S line and Black Edition. Opt for the entry-level SE Exec and you'll find 19in alloys, LED headlights and rear lights, a powered tailgate, parking sensors, auto lights and wipers, and a retractable rear spoiler. Inside, there is Audi's MMI infotainment system including a 6.5in retractable screen, sat nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB interface. There is also leather upholstery, four-zone climate control and heated front seats all included as standard.
Upgrade to the S line trim and you’ll get 20in alloys, sports suspension, matrix LED headlights, a sporty bodykit, sports seats and touches of Alcantara, while the range-topping Black Edition gets a black styling pack, 21in alloy wheels, a Bose sound system and bigger alloys.
