We are driving the 2019 Audi A7 at a first press conference in South Africa. We will update these driving impressions by the end of 2018, once we test it on US highways. UU Audi also offers the S7 and RS 7. These cars are still models of the previous generation and are treated in a separate report. With the 2019 update, Audi designers have not corrected what was not broken. The design uses the same basic form as the outgoing model, but some details have changed. The front grille is lower and wider, and the most prominent wrinkles emphasize the lines of the car, the lower line of characters and cornices at the back being remarkably more prominent. The hood adopts its own lines for the first time and in the back, a taillight chart that runs the width of the car.
Although the actual shape of the 2019 Audi A7 has not changed significantly, many design elements differentiate the innovative Audi from its predecessor, including normal sized Directed taillights, a kind of larger trapezoidal grille, finer headlights and larger openings in the room. bottom lower front The S-Series version. The general exterior design of the 2019 Audi A7 comes after the larger A8, which introduced the latest Audi design vocabulary earlier in the previous 365 days. Alloy tires are approximately 21 “wide. of diameter whereas, at least in Europe, the guided headlights are offered in 3 variants
The current 2019 Audi A7 has an interior design similar to that of the A8 saloon of the most significant size, with two large touch screens in the center that include a board: the top one measures 10.1 inches and the one 8, 6 inches is reduced. A specific difference in the internal surface of the specific 2019 Audi A7 lies in the 3 spoke steering wheel instead of the super technical A8, which looks for both spokes. Audi’s intelligent virtual cab system, which replaces traditional analog meters and a 10.3 inch configurable multi-information display, is also available.
The 2019 Audi A7 generates the same power as the outgoing model, but with a different powertrain. It uses a 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 instead of a supercharged engine of the same size. The power remains unchanged at 340, but the torque increases from 325 to 369 foot pounds. The 2019 Audi A7 also markets an 8 speed automatic transmission with a 7 speed dual clutch transmission. The V-6 works with the 7 speed transmission to provide refined thrust. Zero at 60 mph comes in about 5.3 seconds. The dual clutch transmission moves smoothly and provides the quick changes needed for punching. It’s funny to think that the S7 will be faster and the RS 7 variant even faster. These cars will also offer better maneuverability compared to the competent natural dynamics of the 2019 Audi A7. Audi is building the 2019 Audi A7 in a new space frame combining aluminum and various steels to use the right material in the right place. Replaces an aluminum space frame and is stronger and lighter, with a 10% improvement in torsional stiffness and a 30% increase in lateral stiffness. The total weight is reduced by about 240 pounds, at least in the European model (US specifications are not yet available). Upon arrival, the 2019 Audi A7 will be equipped with all wheel drive with a standard pair / front 40/60 bias. This system can send about 80% of the torque to the shaft with handle. The suspension of the base will include steel springs and fixed dampers. A sporty version of this configuration can also be proposed, with a handling height of less than 0.4 inches and a more rigid adjustment. Expect upper suspension to include air springs with adaptive dampers. The configuration of the air suspension/adaptive shock absorbers allows the 2019 Audi A7 to slide comfortably over the grooves and protuberances, even with the optional 21 inch tires. It also provides controlled and agile handling, with fast and predictable steering and low body tilt. Audi can offer two features to improve the behavior of the 2019 Audi A7 to levels close to that of the S7. The dynamic steering of all four wheels and the Audi Sport differential help the big 2019 Audi A7 to feel smaller and turn around corners with a sporty style. Steering on all wheels varies the forward gear ratio between 9.5 and 16.5: 1. Most importantly, it adds a steering on the rear axle capable of turning the rear wheels up to 5 degrees to the front, at parking speeds of 3.6. feet of the steering circle. However, at speeds up to 37 mph, you can turn the rear wheels 2 to 2.5 degrees in front of the front wheels, which virtually shortens the wheelbase. Audi sport differential vectors stop on the rear axle. The 2019 Audi A7 has the brakes to match this sportiness, too. It comes standard with six piston calipers that keep the discs ventilated by 13.8 inches. We drove a lot on winding coastal roads and never experienced a soft pedal.
The new 2019 Audi A7 helps to continue selling in February in Saudi Arabia and is expected to reach US showrooms after 2018. Audi can not talk about US fares. UU far from the $ 70,675 of the current model that has set up a place for A7 Sportback.
