2021 Audi A7 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Audi A7?

The Audi A7 is a five-seat mid-size luxury car that blends coupelike design and hatchback versatility. It’s powered by a 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that works with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission; all-wheel drive is standard. The performance-oriented S7 gets a 444-hp, twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 that teams with an eight-speed automatic, and the redesigned RS 7 has a 591-hp, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, Porsche Panamera and BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe.  

What’s New on the 2021 Audi A7?

The big news is the return of the RS 7 performance variant, which is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. Meanwhile, the A7 gets standard 20-inch wheels with all-season tires, while the S7 adds 21-inch wheels with summer tires, plus a virtual cockpit and carbon inlays. 

What Features in the 2021 Audi A7 Are Most Important?

Should I Buy the 2021 Audi A7?

The A7 is a stylish and functional alternative to a conventional mid-size luxury sedan, boasting a finely crafted interior and strong performance from its turbo V-6. It is not, however, the easiest to see out of, and it doesn’t offer much cabin storage space. In S7 and RS 7 form, this Audi delivers a strong dose of performance.

Nice Ride

Best car I’ve driven…and I’ve had a few. I like performance and luxury. The A-7 fills the bill. To a sublime tee. When the time is right I’ll get another.
