Is it possible to have sleek styling, a spacious interior, and excellent fuel economy in one vehicle? According to the 2014 A7 TDI, the answer is yes. The Audi A7 is, by all accounts, a beautiful vehicle and the TDI model is no different. With flowing lines, a sleek hatchback shape, and little details such as the LEDs around the front headlights, the A7 TDI is quite the head-turner. One item that you'll be happy to hear is that the TDI decals on our test vehicle are only on the vehicles available for the media.
Inside is another place where the A7 TDI really shines. Audi understands that when someone buys a luxury car, they want to feel special when they make they're grand entrance. Anyone who enters the A7 TDI will definitely feel special with leather seats, a choice of different dash trims, a beautifully designed gauge cluster, and other cues. The back seat provides a decent amount of legroom, but headroom is tight thanks to the sloping roofline. Cargo space measures out to 24.5 cubic feet, meaning you and few friends can have a nice weekend with all of your stuff.
Powering the A7 TDI is a turbocharged 3.0L diesel V6 with 240 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. This is paired up to an eight-speed automatic transmission and Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system. 0-60 MPH comes up in 5.5 seconds, 0.1 second slower than the standard A7. More impressive is the fuel economy: the EPA rates the 2014 Audi A7 TDI at 24 City/38 Highway/29 Combined.
The 2014 Audi A7 TDI starts at $66,900. Competition for the A7 TDI includes the BMW 535d and Mercedes-Benz E 250 Bluetec.
