The Audi A6 ranks among the highest-selling luxury sedans from the German brand’s stable and it utilized the opportunity to launch a sportier and more stylish version of the popular sedan. The A7 was launched back in 2010 as a Sportback vehicle that features a steeply raked rear roofline and a liftback-style rear hatch. Audi placed the sedan in between the A6 and the flagship A8 sedan to cater to a younger and dynamic crowd. The car also received the special “S” treatment from the brand and a high-performance RS7 also hit the market back in 2013.
Presently, the car is in its second-generation model and is built on the Volkswagen MLB Evo platform which it shares with several other vehicles such as the Audi A8, Bentley Bentayga, and the Lamborghini Urus. The car is powered by a supercharged V6 motor that also received a bump in power output for 2018 MY. Priced at $69,700 for the base trim, the car competes with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, BMW 6 Series, and the Porsche Panamera.
