2018 Audi A7 Sportback Teased, Debuts On October 19

Audi has started the teasing game for the new generation A7 Sportback, which will celebrate its premiere this Thursday.

A teaser image posted on the company’s official Twitter account partially reveals its silhouette, which continues to be sporty, in the same vein as its predecessor.

The manufacturer wasn’t willing to reveal anything else about the car, but happily we have a pretty good idea of how it will look like, thanks to a scale model that ended up on the world wide web at the beginning of the month.

At first glance, the 2018 Audi A7 Sportback carries an evolutionary design, with some styling cues taken from the Prologue Concept, but peel its skin away, and you will find the MLB Evo platform, which is shared with a bunch of new vehicles, including the Q5 and Q7.

Continuing to challenge the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the new Audi A7 will adopt a variety of petrol and probably diesel engines too, but topping them all will be the new RS7. Little is known about this high-performance model at the time, but it will probably retain the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that powers the current car, which will receive a healthy power boost, making more than 600 horses.

As far as its public premiere goes, the 2018 Audi A7 Sportback might show its face during the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, which opens its gates on December 1.

      CLS isn’t a hatchback. Not really in the same class. The CLS and 6 Series Grand Coupe are in the same class. The A7 doesn’t really have a direct competitor other than the BMW 6 Series GT.
