The A7 is a stylish, coupe-like hatchback version of the A6 that sacrifices some comfort, access, rear seat room, and visibility for sportiness. The 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 is smooth and delivers effortless power, while the new diesel is impressively subdued and powerful, yet returned 28 mpg overall. The ride, especially with the 20-inch wheels, may be overly firm. The interior is very luxurious but the controls take some familiarity. Audi's standard navigation system includes a touchpad for destination entry. A WiFi hotspot is also offered. A sportier S7 with a 4.0-liter turbo V8 and a higher-performance RS 7 with a 560-hp V8 are offered. Reliability is unknown for the diesel, but above average for the gas version.
