In the off-chance that you think white is the new black when it comes to luxury cars, then you might want to feast your eyes on this Audi A7 Sportback.
Glacier White Metallic is a $595 option in the U.S. and gives you a little bit more of a shine compared to something like Ibis White, which is a standard color. As for pricing, a 55 TFSI quattro version like the one pictured here will set you back at least $68,000.
This particular example was recently on display at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm and appears to be a rather high-spec version judging by its HD Matrix LED headlights with dynamic DRLs and the LED taillights.
Powering the 55 TFSI quattro is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 producing 335 HP (340 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. With the help of a seven-speed S-tronic gearbox and standard all-wheel drive, it can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 5.2 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.3 sec) and max out at 155 mph (250 km/h).
Last year, we saw a Triton Blue Metallic example on display in Ingolstadt, but we’ll let you decide if the latest A7 Sportback looks better on white.
Now, if you’re not a fan of the A7 and would like something a little more conventional for this segment (meaning a typical 4-door body style), your main alternative would be the Mercedes-Benz CLS, which in the U.S. retails from $69,200, but without a standard four-wheel drive system. Either way, you can’t go wrong, so it’s a matter of personal preference. Decisions, decisions…
