2018 Audi A7 review: Our expert's take


What it is: The Audi A7 is a large four-door hatchback. It combines a coupelike profile with the comfort of a sedan and the practicality of a station wagon, Audi says. The A7 slots between the A6 and A8 sedans in Audi's lineup, and competitors include the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and Porsche Panamera.


The A7 comes only with a supercharged gas V-6 engine. Performance variants of the A7 are available as the S7 and RS 7, both of which are powered by turbocharged V-8 engines.

Coolest Mom on the Block.

I wanted a sporty sedan car that was fun to drive, but wasn't over the top flashy, or masculine, and had plenty of room in the trunk to tote my kid's sports stuff. This car is perfect for a spoiled lady like myself. It's luxurious, sporty, safe and practical. The safety features are amazing and are understated on every review I've read online. I was in a really bad car wreck earlier this year and my A7 saved my life - literally. I had a 2016 Audi A7 and I'm currently on the market shopping for a later model of the same car. I love it, I love everything about it. And after test driving alternate options, I'm buying another Audi A7.

Owned It For a Month Getting Lots of Compliments

We purchased this Audi while it still has several months and miles of warranty. We drove about 600 mile round trip to pick it up from the Jaguar/Range Rover dealer in Indianapolis. The sales person was super and the transactions only took 15 minutes because I had prepaid for the car. The drive home gave me a chance to appreciate all of the safety features. My last car was a 2015 S550 4matic, fully loaded. The only thing that the Audi does not have is night vision compared to the S550. The Audi is not as tight as the Mercedes but that may be because it is a hatchback. I did not know if I would like that, but it really is nice to have so much available room in the trunk. I would recommend to anyone.

Such a fun car to drive

Love this car so far. Styling is great. Rides so smooth. Accelerates easily and is real easy to drive. Gas mileage is decent for 3.0T.
