The news about 2017 Audi A7 is very shaking the automotive world these days. Some rumors claim this car will be released as 2019 model year and other rumors claims the vice versa. Let us check the details below.
We got surprising claim from US magazine Automobile about the 2017 Audi A7 recently. This news leads us into the first look of this car by the way. The A7 Sportback won’t be removing its fastback concept with 5-door designs. As the magazine’s claim, the body language is the only A7’s features which will be changed dominantly. Based on the photos, we are amazed with the single grille and larger front fascia obviously. This is something new for Audi especially A7 which is well-known as hatchback vehicle so far. Furthermore, we reviewed the larger wheels below its body.
Overall, the exterior is very depending on the aerodynamic designs but it does not remove the five-door hatchback’s nature. Our eyes came inside the cabin of the new A7 after amazingly viewed the exterior. Say goodbye for the MMI Knob and many buttons on the previous A7 and say hi for the modern technologies like touchscreen and super-modern dash from Audi. Furthermore, Audi will plant a video monitor on A7’s dashboard which can be connected with the steering wheel directly. If this is realized in the future, the driver does not have to look at the rearview mirror anymore. What we got on the cabin are very satisfying as modern hatchback or SUV.
2017 Audi A7 release date
The 2017 Audi A7 will be released somewhere in 2016 probably. But, rumors said it is not as 2017 model. We do not know yet that Audi will stick on the plan as 2017 A7 or not. If the rumors are not true, the will release A7 in the third quarter of this year obviously. Meanwhile, the engine range starts from the 2.0 L turbocharged four-cylinder until 3.0 L V6 turbodiesel engines. Both engines will carry more than 300 horsepower with better fuel efficiency, thanks to eco-boost system which is highly developed by Audi so far.
For the price, we can predict it based on the engine options above. The starting MSPR won’t be more than $69,000 USD since the V6 and diesel engine will accompany A7 this year. Customers expect that Audi should present the plug-in hybrid for A7 either. This will happen if Audi sets the A7 as 2019 model year because they have more time to prepare the hybrid version of 2017 Audi A7.
