The new Audi A7 Sportback is available for order in Russia


Russian dealers of Audi have begun the accepting of orders for the new Audi A7 Sportback, which has already appeared in showrooms. The price of new items starts from 4 million 320 thousand rubles, informed the press service of Audi Russia.

The second-generation of Audi A7 Sportback is offered with a 3.0 TFSI petrol engine (V6, 340 hp) with mild hybrid technology and a quattro ultra all-wheel drive system combined with a 7-speed S tronic gearbox. The torque of 500 Nm is achieved in the range from 1370 to 4500 rpm. The car accelerates to 100 km/h just for 5.3 seconds and develops 250 km/h of maximum speed.

The mild hybrid technology reduces fuel consumption by 0.7l/100km. At speeds from 55 to 160 km/h the car can be driven downhill with a muffled engine, which is immediately started if necessary. In addition, the new Audi A7 Sportback is equipped with a start-stop system with advanced functions, which is already activated at a speed of 22 km/h.

Already in the standard equipment of the Audi A7 Sportback there is a variable-ratio steering system that provides greater accuracy as the steering angle increases. There are four options offered for car suspension for the choice of customers.

An innovative solution in the running gear is a dynamic steering system. Depending on the speed, the system actively pushes the front and rear axle wheels, changing the ratio in the range from 9.5:1 to 16.5:1. At low speeds, the rear and front wheels rotate in opposite directions, which increase maneuverability. At speeds over 60 km/h, the rear wheels rotate in the same direction as the front wheels, which increases stability on the straight and helps with lane change. The list of basic equipment of Audi A7 Sportback, in particular, includes LED lights, the system start-stop, rain and light sensors, electric adjustment of the front seats with memory settings for the driver's seat, heated front seats, multifunction steering wheel with leather trim, MMI Radio Plus with MMI touch response, climate control with individual settings for the driver and front passenger, cruise control, parking assistant, etc.

The new Audi A7 Sportback will be available in three lines - Advance, Sport and Design. Audi A7 Sportback is offered with a variety of assistive systems and functions, which are divided into two packages: City (with a new traffic assistant at the intersection) and Travel. The last one includes an adaptive driving assistant (ADA), which is completing the action of adaptive cruise control (ACC) with an easy thrust to keep the occupied band. Depending on the equipment, the car can be equipped with five radar sensors, five cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors and a laser scanner, for which the Central Control Unit of Assistive Systems (zFAS) is responsible.
