Eric's Autos: 2022 Audi A7

Eric Peters on

Speed, it is said, is a question of money. How fast do you want to go?

Well, how about looks?

Audi's A7 is a much more dramatic-looking car than the A6 sedan it's related to. It has coupe-like styling, including a more rakish windshield and a lower roofline.

It's also about $15,000-to-start more expensive than the A6.

How good do you want to look?

What It Is

 

The A7 is a midsized luxury-sport sedan (styled Sportback by Audi) related to the Audi A6 sedan. Both are about the same overall size, but the A7 has a sleeker profile -- at the cost of a little front and rear headroom. This is offset by its significantly increased cargo capacity, which it has because it doesn't have a trunk like the A6 sedan. Instead, it has a hatchback rear opening, which increases the available cargo-carrying space from 13.7 cubic feet (in the A6) to 21.6 cubic feet.

This makes it a more practical -- as well as more dramatic-looking -- car.

It's also a more expensive one.

Prices begin at $69,200 for the Premium trim, which comes standard with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine and all-wheel drive. You can pick up an A6 for $55,900 to start.
