Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Audi A7 is a midsize luxury car with a hatchback cargo area (Audi dubs this body style a "Sportback").The Prestige adds ventilated front seats, passenger lumbar adjustment, a head-up display, a corner view parking camera and power-closing doors

PROS
Hatchback offers more cargo space than a sedan's trunk
V6 engine's strong performance
Stunning styling that hasn't aged a bit

CONS
Firm ride with 20-inch wheels
Hefty price premium over comparable Audi A6
Doesn't offer Audi's latest in-car tech
Rear headroom can be tight for taller passengers

Responsive and intuitive 8-inch touchscreen interface
