The all-new four-seat Audi A7, a five-door fastback, achieves its goal of coupe elegance, sedan convenience and wagon functionality. Its powertrain is superb: fast and silky supercharged V6, seamless 8-speed Tiptronic transmission, and quattro all-wheel drive, with an EPA Combined 23 mpg on premium fuel. Interior is clean and stylish, and ride excellent. The navigation system is dubious, but the base model comes without navigation so it's safe. We found the Multi Media Interface distracting to operate.
