The history of this mid-size luxury 5-door Sportback begins in 2009 when concept was revealed in Detroit. In 2010, serial model was launched and in a very short time this car became very popular both in Europe and North America. After four years of production, company decided to do some modifications. Refreshed model came in Europe in May 2014, while North American version is expected to come this year as 2016 Audi A7. With mid-cycle refresh, Audi brings several novelties in all aspects, so you will see not only refreshed look, but also upgraded interior and improved engines.
2016 Audi A7 changes
The 2016 Audi A7 comes only with minor modifications, when it is about exterior look. The overall look remains pretty much the same and only notable changes are on the front fascia. Refreshed model will come with new headlights, which will feature new angular design which we already seen on models like 2015 A8 or 2016 TT. Also, new Matrix LED lights will be available as optional. Inside, 2016 A7 comes with better-quality materials and some new color options. The most notable features are Beaufort walnut wood trim and Valcona leather. Refreshed model also features an upgrade infotainment system, which now uses new much faster Nvidia Tegra processor and improved graphics, and also handwriting recognition.
When it is about safety features, 2016 Audi A7 comes improved Night Vision Assistant, which is now able even to recognize animals. When it is about engines, refreshed model keeps the same line-up, which is consisted of three petrol and one diesel engine (which is available in three configurations with an output from 200 to over 300 hp). However, big novelty is that two TFSI petrol engines and all diesel configurations are now compatible to Euro 6 emission standard. All North American models use 8-speed Tiptronic transmission, which delivers power either to front or all wheels.
2016 Audi A7 release date and price
As we already mentioned, European model came in May last year and North American model is expected to be launched during 2015, but more precise date is still unknown. When it is about price, we don’t expect big changes compared to current model, which goes from 65.000 to 110.000 dollars.
