Representatives of the automotive media recently in Cape Town have been given the opportunity to drive the new 2019 Audi A7 Sportback. Based on the new platform it shares with SUVs Q5 and Q7, it should be the main competitor of Mercedes CLS. The new A7 has received several improvements over its predecessor, among other things, an interesting four-point management.
There is also a new styling inspired by the Prologue concept, but it has kept the hairline on the roof that gives it a sporty spirit. As far as the interior is concerned, it is very similar to the new generation A8 from which it acquired the new MMI multimedia system.
Audi replaced the touchscreen and rotary control dial with the touch screen and voice commands, which make it harder to use while driving than the old version.

2019 Audi A7 Exterior Redesign
The new 2019 Audi A7 was designed by Audi’s design director Mark Lihte, and the car relies heavily on the 2010 generation. The new look kept the same proportions as the outgoing version, but it has a lower nose and a hexagonal front mask, as well as prominent lines on the body. Redesign and some new items are a feature of the new Audi A7 2019. The front resettles are reinforced on the lower lip by a small air dam and represent in some way an evolution in design. There are also headlights that you may not have noticed before, but they certainly were there. The A7 also made the evolution of the front lights.
We are still at the front, where we can notice that the hood has got a new look. Compared to the predecessor, a profile with multiple muscle lines was raised. More contrasts have been made between the inner and outer lines. The rear part also has strong muscle lines, but also looking at the profiles you can see the muscular lines with 21 inches of wheel. The rear part of the rear window is harsh and gives a slightly more aggressive look. The window frame is thinner than the previous version. It looks like the designers here played and they also picked up some of the Porsche 911, a roof that is smooth with a steep slope.
The car is 4,969m long and the wheelbase is 2,926m. This means that the car is shorter by a few inches from the previous model, but the wheelbase is larger. The new A7 is 1,908m wide and 1,422m high. Standard wheels have a diameter of 21 inches. The most striking element of body design is the LED strip that stretches across the entire width of the rear end.
The cabin creates a departure from the design of the outgoing generation, with a horizontal arrangement of the center console elements and on-screen controls for almost all functions, including air conditioning. The new multimedia system is managed entirely across the screen. Below the main screen there is a secondary, 8.6-inch diagonal as well as the Audi Drive Select controller.
The virtual cockpit comes in the form of a 12.3-inch diagonal screen Audi Virtual Cockpit, which can be configured to display various information, including map, speed and travel data.
The new 2019 Audi A7 is very quiet, and the cab is barely heard by the noise produced by wheels and wind, and the steering is very good, but it is not adapted to the sporting ride, reporters report. We hope this will change on the announced versions of S7 and RS7.
The new 2019 Audi A7 uses the Volkswagen MLB platform, which has been modified for newer models. The A7 is an integrated rear track control system to achieve the effect of a smaller wheelbase when turning, or to achieve higher stability at higher speeds.
This vehicle copy is more than excellent and features include MMI Navigation, Valcona Leather upholstery, MMI Navigation plus. It is also necessary to mention the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System, a sound system that is characteristic of this model. The interesting item Audi A will get during this year is the Audi AI Remote Garage Pilot as well as the Audi AI Parking Pilot. One such system is treated as an intelligent device that should also contain intelligent items such as sensors whose number varies depending on the model you choose, 12 ultrasonic sensors and up to five cameras.
Engine and Performance
The basic engine for new 2019 Audi A7 will be a three-liter turbo V6 petrol engine of 340 hp and a smaller electric system running at a voltage of 48V. The result is a declared consumption of 8.3l / 100km. The Plug-in hybrid variant will be offered later, and its specifications are not published. The S7 high performance model, as well as the RS 7, will certainly be offered.
With the advanced start / stop system and duplex batteries with regenerative braking, Audi announced an exceptional economy that would allow the gasoline engine to combine a consumption of about 6 liters per 100 kilometers. Other info about this car find here.
