Audi A7 Exterior
The A7 has a much longer wheelbase and chassis than other Audis. This does make it look a bit like a regular Audi that has been stretched. From the front and the side, it looks very nice. It looks slick and smooth, and the intricacies of the design really stand out. A big design fault is the back end, which looks out of alignment with the front, almost as if the rear has melted.

Audi A7 Interior
The interior is a bit of a let down. The HUD is over-excited, flashy and has too much jumping out at you, which can be a bit distracting. A lot of the seating space has been taken up by the interior trim and bodywork, which can leave both driver and passengers feeling a bit cramped.
The centre console and dashboard have plenty of features, but they are somewhat awkwardly placed. What’s more, the styling looks dated and some features, like the heating ducts, look quite squashed in.

- Rear and Front Cupholder
- Premium leather seating
- Automatic four-zone climate control system
