The Audi A7 is on its way to South Africa and we've uncovered pricing on the local Audi website. Here's how much you can expect to pay.
The design has been refined with a more sloped roofline and a rear-end that doesn’t look as droopy and sad as it did before. Many loved the A7’s design and it was certainly the most recognisable model in the range, but I wasn’t a fan. This new A7 looks more resolved and has a more natural 4-door coupe look to it.
The highlight of the A7 is the new interior, it really moves the game on and is a big step up. It was a big decision to move away from the MMI rotary knob system but the 2 touchscreen system that replaces it, is excellent. Not only does the cabin look fresh and modern but its infotainment and basic functions are easier to access.
According to Audi SA's configurator, we only have one engine to choose from. It's the 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol V6 with 250 kW and 500 Nm. Power goes to a quattro setup via an S tronic transmission and Audi claims 0-100 kph in just 5.3 seconds.
We've also had a look at the options available and you can customise your A7 quite extensively. The S line exterior package is available for R31 350, as well as the Black styling package for R10 450. The vehicle rides on 20-inch alloys but there are 3 more wheel designs to choose from, some of which are 21-inch in size. The Matrix LED headlamps are standard, which is great as these are arguably the best headlights on the market.
Inside, you can opt for sportier seats with uprated leather trim as well as an audio upgrade in the form of a Bang & Olufsen sound system for R93 800. An all-wheel steer is an option too, at R33 050.
