2019 Audi A7 Designers Believe Their Brainchild Is The Bomb

We guess that all car designers are, understandably, proud of their work, no matter what the public thinks of it. However, the two people responsible for the looks of the all-new A7 Sportback feel they have created something truly special.

According to exterior designers Andreas Koglin and Sebastian Russo, some of the lines on the all-new A7, such as the low shoulder line or how it all comes together over the rear wheel arch, are new for Audi.

Moreover, they are especially happy with the horizontal light strip at the rear, which, Russo thinks, makes the A7 look like a UFO when viewed from behind, at a certain distance.

Another interesting design trait of the A7 is its fuel cap, which is actually cutting through one of the main design lines of the car, thus requiring some extra work from the engineering department due to its positioning.

From the get-go, Audi wanted to make sure that the new A7 Sportback would be more beautiful than its predecessor, as well as considerably sportier than the A8. Now, thanks to the sleek styling, not to mention the wide grille that’s also positioned lower than on the A8 for a more aggressive look, both goals appear to have been achieved.

    Looks like an Accord.

    • John

      Front of Accord looks better (but not the back… obviously)

    • jsz00

      The Accord looks fresh and better than this A7

      • ErnieB

        Agreed.. when I saw the accord IRL it really impressed me!!

      • Bo Hanan

        The Accord is ugly. And it doesn’t help the A7 that it’s original version came before the current model Accord, and everybody seems to think that Audi copied the Accord with this new model.

  • Leconte Dave

    Just fix the tail lights

  • Research Janitor

    That does not look like a $70,000 vehicle.

      An Audi is a VW with a bunch of options and better leather interior.

  • el brago

    Looks like an Accord.

  • Baba

    Look like they try too hard to top cls gen2 rear lights.

  • ErnieB

    Looks like the accord x4

  • Beautiful Automobile

    I’ve always loved the A7. Now, even more so. Yes, Honda’s design vocabulary is similar, but if you sit inside and drive an A7 there’s simply no comparison to many vehicles on the road in any class.

    Wasn’t a big fan of this design and preferred the previous model. While I do like the older models fastback roofline more this new model has grown on me a lot more. The exterior lighting is sweet. If I had the cash I’d choose this or the S5. BTW this car looks so much better than the Accord.

    Too many doors …

  • MarketAndChurch

    Simple yet precise = a very refined design. It looks very nice.

  • MultiKdizzle

    I was one of the few who thought the previous model was ungainly. This time around things are better, but there’s still too much visual mass over the rear axle.

  • Puddingpopper

    biffed it

  • Markey

    that rear end looks like an elephant sat on it

  • Toronado_II

    When I look at the rear, the Malibu come in mind… Sorry Audi !

  • BobV12

    Damn Audi, wanking two new lines per car every 10 years

  • Enter Ranting

    Are they really that proud of the huge fake grilles in the front bumper, the same ones that are found on every single car sold in the U.S.? Or that big shiny black plastic dashboard? I wouldn’t be. In fact, I wouldn’t admit I had anything to do with this design.

  • alexxx

    I agree…it is a bomb design…they nailed it…
