Now the handsome four-door will undergo a complete redesign. Prototypes for the brand-new A7 have actually been out and about for some months.
This Year, though, we have our very first take a look at a prototype for the sporty S7. We understand this model is for the S7 due to the fact that of its huge wheels and brakes.

It also underpins the A5, A6, Q5, and Q7 along with the next-generation A8 (which will precede the A7 to market).
Inside, there are many additional components motivated by the Prologue principle, however Audi chief designer told us the interior will be “even more futuristic.” Positive elements will consist of swiping functions for the screen and several thin-film-transistor (TFT) shows that may use OLED technology. The readily available suite of help systems will include a function to summon the car from, say, a tight garage space, a parlor technique that is hugely popular among Tesla fans.

It’s not clear exactly what engine is prowling below the hood however a safe bet based on the exhaust note in the spy video is Volkswagen Group’s brand-new twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 that made its debut in the 2017 Porsche Panamera 4S, where it provides a healthy 440 horsepower. Expect a similar output in the new S7.
V-8 fans can eagerly anticipate a new RS 7. This one should feature a variation of the VW Group’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that made its debut in the 2017 Panamera Turbo, potentially with an electric compressor included to decrease lag. The technology made its debut in the 2017 SQ7 TDI offered overseas.
Though it’s yet to be verified, Audi may also be preparing an electrical A7, as suggested by a model lacking any visible exhaust suggestions. Audi CEO Rupert Stadler in July confirmed that by 2020 two more electrical Audis will join the car manufacturer’s Q6 e-tron debuting in 2018. One might certainly be an A7 e-tron.
