2012 Audi A7: Introduction
With the growing number of four-door coupes being introduced in recent years, it was rather disappointing that Audi decided not to offer its A5 Sportback in the U.S., but all was forgiven when the sleeker and sexier 2012 Audi A7 went on sale in May. While the A5 Sportback would have surely cannibalized sales from the A6 sedan, the new Audi A7 is positioned in the line-up above the mid-size A6 but far more affordable than the A8 flagship sedan. So how well does Audi do in splitting the difference between the recently redesigned A6 and A8 sedans? Audi aimed to show us by dropping off the stylish five-door for this weeklong road test and review. More than just a looker, the Audi A7 also offers drivers innovative technology and amazing handling and performance.
