Among its discerning features are the 5-twin spoke V-design 20″ wheels, S-Line kit, white contrast stitching on just about every leather surface and the Alcantara on the door panels. It’s not the most exclusive spec, but it does look both elegant and sporty, not to mention tech-y.
This car is actually the 50 TDI quattro version, which is powered by a V6 diesel engine, churning out 286 PS and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque. On paper, it needs just 5.7 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph).
Buyers looking for even better performance can aim for the 55 TFSI model, which uses a petrol-powered V6 to put down 340 PS and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. It’s enough to get you from 0 to 100 in 5.3 seconds.
In the UK, the all-new A7 Sportback is priced from £54,940 (50 TDI quattro), whereas the more potent 55 TFSI costs upwards of £55,140. Standard features include LED front and rear lights, 19″ wheels, leather seats, LED ambient lighting and more, while 20″ alloys, HD Matrix LED headlights, sport suspension and sport seats are all available either as optional extras, or part of specific packages such as the S line trim.
