Created as one of the most luxurious five seaters, the facelifted Audi A7 Sportback perfectly combines elegance and beauty with proper driving thrills. Despite being produced with long journeys on sealed roads in mind, the German marque recently took a silver example to the sand dunes of Dubai where it performed rather valiantly!
Compared to the previous iteration of the A7 Sportback, the most recent facelifted example features a redesigned front grille, more aggressive front bumper and redesigned LED headlights available with the Matrix LED technology with a very sharp design. Moreover, the 2015 Audi A7 Sportback features revised tailpipes and a new rear bumper.
Under the long hood, the Audi A7 Sportback is available with a host of different engines, both petrol and diesel. The entry-level Audi A7 Sportback Ultra is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine delivering 218 hp to the front wheels. A 272 hp 3.0-litre TDI diesel is also available while a 3.0-litre biturbo diesel pumps out 320 hp and is mated to an eight speed transmission. All the others are fitted with the seven-speed S tronic ‘box. Topping out the 2015 Audi A7 Sportback range (excluding the RS7) is the S7 Sportback with its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 450 hp through all four wheels.
