Audi A7 on the road (Video&SH) 2012
The 2012 Audi A7
HERNDON, Va., April 15, 2011 — Audi has broken new ground with the A7, combining the
emotional appeal of a coupe with the prestige of a sedan and the functionality of a wagon. The innovative, five-door design of the newest Audi entry sits atop a sporty, lightweight chassis and is partnered with a highly efficient supercharged V6, latest generation quattro® all-wheel drive and the latest advanced driver assistance and multimedia systems to define a new benchmark
for the premium segment.
The Audi A7 is the next evolution of Audi design, with short overhangs, a long wheelbase, an expansive hood and low-slung, sporty proportions. The Audi A7 stretches 195.6 inches in length and has a 114.7 inch wheelbase. Combined with its 84.2 inch width and 55.9 inch height, the Audi A7 exudes elegance and confidence.
With its low roofline and integrated rear doors, the Audi A7 has a coupe-like silhouette. Other design elements that signify coupe styling are the frameless door windows and side mirrors mounted on the doors. The C-pillar stretches to the rear and flows into the shoulder, while the sharp tornado line begins at the headlights, extends across the fenders, over the doors and terminates in a gentle slope toward the tail lights, paying homage to the 1969 Audi 100 Coupé S.
The Audi signature Singleframe® grille is contoured at the leading edge of the hood, with a chrome surround framing high-gloss black lattices with chrome accents. The horizontal posture of the fascia emphasizes the width of the Audi A7, as do the wide, low air inlets and horizontal struts.
The Audi A7 comes standard with Audi's xenon plus technology, complete with new all-weather lighting integrated into the headlamp housings. The system replaces traditional fog lamps, whose would-be location in the air intakes now is occupied by two radar sensors for optional adaptive cruise control. The signature LED daytime running lights are standard.
Optional full LED lighting, an unmistakable element of Audi design, blends visibility and style with low energy consumption and an extended service life. In addition to the 18 LEDs used for the daytime running lamps and 11 LEDs employed for the turn signals, two powerful LED units comprise the low- and high-beam headlamps on each side. Tail lamps are fitted with LED lamps as well. The optional adaptive lighting system modifies the amount of illumination based on the
driving environment, whether cornering, traveling in the city or on the highway.
The integrated spoiler automatically extends at 80 mph and then retracts at 50 mph. It can also be deployed and retracted manually via the push of a button. The two large, round tailpipes of the dual-branch Exhaust system are incorporated seamlessly into the bumper and benefit from an attractive chrome application.
For those seeking an even more dynamic look, the Prestige package includes redesigned front and rear bumpers with air inlet grilles, extended side sills and a platinum gray diffuser insert.
The sweeping exterior of the A7 extends inside, where Audi maintains its leading role in automotive interior design. The defining element is the "wraparound" design -- which
incorporates a horizontal line encircling the driver and front passenger that starts above the instrument panel and ends in the passenger-side door. The center console is oriented toward the driver to further enhance the driver focus of the interior.
Front seats are 10-way adjustable and available with four-way lumbar support, three-stage ventilation and three-stage heating, the latter of which is available for the rear seats as well.
Rear seat passengers enjoy two comfortable, contoured seats with ample head, arm, and
Chrome bezels frame the air vents, while aluminum-look trim accents the optional layered wood veneers and bezels. Two optional interior lighting packages are available: one composed of active door reflectors, lighted handles, and LED reading lights (Premium and Premium Plus) and another ambient lighting package (Prestige) that utilizes LED lamps to highlight door pockets, sills, and center console -- all of which can be configured to suit the owner's taste.
The Audi A7 is available with two types of leather -- Milano or Valcona -- which color-coordinate with the four-spoke steering wheel and transmission selector lever. Fine grain ash wood veneers are standard while dark brown walnut and brushed aluminum trims are optional. The seat coverings are available in black, titanium gray, nougat brown and velvet beige, while the headlining is available in black, lunar silver and silk beige.

Audi A7 - Behind The Scenes
Audi exterior designer Achim-D Badstübner provides a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of the all-new Audi A7. It is one of the most unusual genesis stories in the Audi model family. The A7 was a design team's dream project that originated without an order and without a requirements specification -- and literally seduced the Board of Management.
