Engine and Performance
7.0/10

During everyday driving, we appreciated the Audi's effortless quickness.- Car And Driver

The 2022 Audi A7 juices 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque with its 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine that mates with a 7-speed automatic transmission in an AWD layout. It even hosts an Audi Drive Select that makes shifts in the driving style, steering response, and throttle inputs as we choose from the Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Individual modes. 

The Audi A7 2022 retains its 5.2 seconds 0-60 MPH acceleration besides its electronically limited top speed of 130 MPH. On top of that, the A7 can have a slightly enhanced command on its wheel geometry with the optional Sport Suspensions over the standard Dynamic Suspension that gets in the hand with the S Line Package.

Interior
7.0/10

"Thanks to its fastback shape, the A7 has a good amount of cargo room."- MotorTrend

The 2022 Audi A7 interior welcomes you with standard 8-way power-adjustable heated front seats having leather upholstery all over them. The leatherette accents such as Black with Rock Gray Stitching, Okapi Brown with Steel Gray Stitching, and Pearl Beige with Agate Gray Stitching spring the ambiance in style. The Prestige trim even gets Sarder Brown with Steel Gray Stitching in addition to these 3 accents exclusively along with a rear heated row and ventilated front seats. Expanding this Prestige's stature is the Luxury Package costing $2,750 with which Individual Contour Front Seats and Seat Memory are availed.

Coming on the other comfort creatures highlights the 3-zone automatic climate control of the Premium and Premium Plus configurations that changes to 4-zone automatic climate control in the Prestige for better temperature regulation. That being said, the Prestige has been adorned with a Multi-Color Ambient Interior LED Lighting Package as well while the rest has to settle with an Ambient Interior LED Lighting Package. There is an Executive Package at $1,750 too that adds Multi-Color Ambient Interior LED Lighting Package, Heated Rear Row, Adaptive Cruise Assist, and Ventilated Front Row to the Premium Plus.

In terms of comparisons, the Audi A7 appears to have the best cargo capacity that is 13 cu-ft larger than the Mercedes-Benz CLS Class and 6.7 cu-ft bigger than that of the 7 Series. However, it tends to feel a little low in spaciousness when matched against the 7 Series as the BMW has 7.4 inches better legroom in the rear row, that too with 2 inches extra shoulder room. Meanwhile, to keep your controls and input settings at ease the A7 Premium features a 12.3-inch TFT screen Audi Virtual Cockpit and a 10.1-inch infotainment display. 

The Audi Virtual Cockpit of the 2022 A7 charms you with its three visual modes namely Sport, Dynamic, and Classic. And, the Audi Sound System fills space with your musical vibes but that is only true for the Premium edition. As the Premium Plus and Prestige curves that rhythmic outflow with their standard 16-speakers Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium Sound System. The MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch response and Audi Connect has been integrated as well inside the cabin to expand its functionality holistically. Some of the notable interior features have been mentioned below:

 The Audi A7 heaps luxury into a svelte shape like a great tuxedo.- The Car Connection

The 2022 Audi A7 has been designed to own a fierce appeal in more than 8 exterior colors including the standard Brilliant Black and Ibis White for the Premium trim. It further elaborates with Chronos Gray Metallic, Firmament Blue Metallic, Florett Silver Metallic, and Glacier White Metallic, each costing $595 alongside the exclusive paint jobs costing an extra up to $3,900. Along with these, Audi adds that little aggression with its High-Beam Assist LED Headlights on the Premium configuration front that upgrades to HD-Matrix Design LED Headlights for the rest of the lineup. 

The Audi A7 2022 has got a panoramic sunroof on top as well while the top view camera system with virtual 360 view gets in the frame from Premium Plus onwards. And, it rides on those 20-inch 5-twin-arm design wheels having all-season tires wrapped around. Moreover, we have 21-inch 5-arm-V-design wheels as an optional too but that remains exclusive for the Prestige trim.

Speaking of the variations among them, the Audi A7 weighs the heaviest but the margin is 100 lbs at max which hardly impacts its cornering stability considering the tech-rich segment. One of the highlighted gaps between the BMW 7 Series and the A7 is that the former has 11.2 inches longer wheelbase that simply allows it to have better top-speed straight-line dynamics. Apart from this, all the other dimensions are more or less well within the same ballpark only that narrates comparable dynamics in the end.

Safety
7.0/10

The A7's driver aids are generally very good.- Edmunds

The 2022 Audi A7 has no safety rating by the NHTSA but it receives "Good" ratings by the IIHS in all the parameters except for the Headlights where the mark stands at "Acceptable". Such structural soundness pays off as the Audi A7 gets inducted into the "Top Safety Pick+" award for the 2022 MY. Along with that, it comes deluged with an inspiring safety suite as well that has below mentioned features throughout the lineup:

  • Audi active lane assist with emergency assist (Premium Plus & Prestige)
  • Audi pre sense front
  • Lane Departure warning
  • Cruise Control
  • Adaptive Cruise Assist (Premium Plus & Prestige)
  • Traffic Jam Assist (Premium Plus & Prestige)

Competition

2022 Audi A7 vs 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS Class

The 2022 Mercedes Benz CLS Class and the 2022 Audi A7 are two of the finest models in the segment with supreme interior richness and high-end technology. The touches around the cabin for both are also impressive. However, the CLS seems to be a little quicker in its acceleration and power thump along with better range coverage and parallel dynamics. So, it has to be CLS 450 over Audi A7 2022 for now. 

2022 Audi A7 vs 2022 BMW 7 Series

The BMW 7 Series matches the 2022 Audi A7 in its power performance and handing pursuit. The same stays true in the case of interior charm as well. But the BMW 7 Series tends to outclass the A7 in-cabin spaciousness while the A7 has an edge in cargo volume, resulting in an equal proposition in this regard altogether. The technology embedded and optional assets on offer are also very enticing for both of them. So, one can for either of them. 

2022 Audi A7 vs 2022 Porsche Panamera

The 2022 Porsche Panamera has got the lead against the 2022 Audi A7 in power exhilaration and the range one could enjoy that thrill. However, when it comes to the luxurious interior, despite being one of the most desirable models, the Panamera still misses that outplay that A7 owns as standard and optional in its realm. But one can hardly pinpoint any gap in their command on their respective drives. On the whole, each is equally potent and anyone can be chosen.  

 

Final Verdict
8.0/10

The 2022 Audi A7 has got both class and performance at its disposal with a comfortable and isolated cabin. The standard assets along with the optional ones further bolster its argument as one of the best in the business. Its interior engagement is also apt as per segment and the complementary safety drive reinforces its overall stance.
