The four rings of German marque known as Audi is known for its technologically advanced luxury vehicles. The brands’ reputation for its sophistication precedes itself, and that will show in the 2022 Audi A7 as well. The luxury sedan sports the aggressively sloping roofline that led to its popularity over the past decade. The A7 has always been a sportier alternative to sedans offering pure luxury, such as their very ownAudi A8. Audi takes a different approach towards bringing performance into the luxury sedan segment, unlike BMW, which offers plenty of oomph in its full-size luxury7 Series, or Mercedes-Benz and its uber-luxuriousS-Class, which doesn’t leave much room for performance. 

The 2022 Audi A7 sedan will be a refreshed design, yet similar stunning design cues will be carried over from the previous model years both inside out. The luxurious sedan will still have the aggressive front and rear outlook and interiors flourished with high-quality materials and top-notch technological bits. But let’s go over the minimal modifications and additions that the fresh 2022 Audi A7 will be coming along with.

The Premium Plus trim will start at $78,350 and add features like Audi’s Virtual Cockpit, Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium Sound System, a Top view camera system with a Virtual 360 view, LED Matrix headlight with illumination animation, etc. The top end Prestige trim will start at $85,445 and add HD Matrix-design LED headlights with Audi laser light and high-beam assist, Head-up display, Heated and ventilated front seats, Driver Assistance Package, and Power soft-closing doors. 

We recommend

We recommend going for the Premium Plus trim which carries approximately $8,000 premium over the base trim but adds lots of value adding features like LED tail lights, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit plus, 360 degree surround view camera, premium Bang & Olufsen sound system, etc. While those who are comfortable spending over $80,000 on a Audi A7 then the topmost Prestige trim should be the default choice.

Release Date

Audi hasn’t announced the on-sale date of the 2022 Audi A7 sedan, but we expect a summer 2021 arrival based on previous schedules.

2022 Audi A7 Engine and Performance

The 2022Audi A7 sedan will retain the punchy powerhouse, which is the 3.0L Turbocharged V6 that punches out 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed S Tronic DCT that offers lightning-quick shifts, while the power flows to all wheels of the sedan. This combination ensures that the sedan shoots off the line, hugs the corners with ease, and performs on any weather-beaten road. The peak torque strikes as early as 1,370 rpm, which assures that the 2022 Audi A7 sedan never lets the driver down thrashing the accelerator pedal.

*2021 model specifications

In comparison to rivals, the 2022Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 4MATIC is the pick when it comes to the specs game. While the 2021Maserati Ghibli and its rear-wheel-drive powertrain do ensure some sideways action, the traction control restricts driving pleasure to a certain extent. The 2022 Audi A7 sedan and its retained powertrain will be the second least powerful option, before thePorsche Panamera but will tie to the competitors in torque figures.

2022 Audi A7 Fuel Economy

Efficiency and mileage are what luxury marque keeps aside, but the 2022 Audi A7 sedan balances power and economy quite well with its punchy and brawny 3.0L Turbo V-6 block. One can expect similar figures to the previous model years, which would be 22/29/25 mpg in city/highway/combined scenarios. The 2022 Audi A7 sedan fits a 19.3-gallon fuel tank to stretch the most miles before a fuel-refill break.

The figures suggest that the 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 4MATIC and 2022Porsche Panamera will offer the most fuel efficiency and mileage, while the other competitor, the 2021 Maserati Ghibli is quite far behind. When comparing the fuel tank capacity, Porsche Panamera offers its consumers the most miles before stopping for a refill.

2022 Audi A7 Interior

Audi is known for its spacious and sumptuous interiors, and the 2022 Audi A7 sedan wouldn’t miss out on the brand’s reputation. The interior materials will be high quality and offer a soft touch. The sedan also offers a comfortable seating position to all 5 passengers. The cabin will be roomy and breezy with plenty of legroom at the back. 

Like the 2021 model, egress and ingress will be smooth. The cabin is easily accessible and will be featuring top-notch upholstery. It will be garnished with metallic accents, even carbon fiber trims at certain spots for a sportier look. The toned-down color options offer a sophisticated outlook with signature smooth surfaces and streamline flowing dashboard lines.

*2021 model specifications

The 2022 Audi A7 sedan is a no-brainer with the most spacious and technologically advanced cabin. But if the dual-screen center is something that doesn’t soothe you, then the Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 4MATIC will be a perfect fit. TheMaserati Ghibli also features some top-notch materials, but the infotainment highlights are definitely to the minimalist side.

Being another Audi badged vehicle, the 2022 Audi A7 sedan will be equipped with the Audi virtual cockpit 12.3-inch high-definition driver’s console display. The center stack will glue (not literally) the MMI touch response system with dual center displays (10.1" upper and 8.6" lower) with haptic feedback. The other important infotainment features that will be equipped in the 2022 Audi A7 sedan can be listed as:

  • Head-up display with navigation information
  • Voice Control System
  • Amazon Alexa integration
  • Audi smartphone interface with wireless Apple Carplay and wired Google Android Auto
  • Bang & Olufsen 3D Premium Sound System with 16 speakers, 15-channel amplifier, and 705 watts
  • SiriusXM with a 90-day trial subscription
  • Bluetooth wireless technology with audio streaming for compatible devices
  • Garage door opener (HomeLink)
  • Audi phone box (signal booster and wireless charger)

2022 Audi A7 Exterior

The exteriors will receive some refreshed styling cues that will differentiate the 2022 Audi A7 sedan from the current model year. As per the brand, redesigned and sleeker headlights will give a fresh yet established aggressive front fascia appeal. The taillamps won’t be left out and will be refreshed to a sleeker yet attractive design. The side stance is quite sporty, with a smooth roofline flowing to the rear. For a more imposing look, the Black edition offers black accents in place of chrome.

2022 Audi A7 Competition

2022 Audi A7 sedan vs 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 4MATIC

The 2022 Audi A7 sedan is under-powered figuratively to the 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 4MATIC. But when it comes to character, the Audi has better appealing styling cues and advanced interiors in terms of materials and infotainment. The driving dynamics of both German rivals are top-notch as they deliver the bridge to performance and smooth power delivery. Both are equally and heavily equipped with safety features and are meant for unmatched luxury and comfort. Though the 2022 Audi A7 sedan is more spacious inside.

2022 Audi A7 sedan vs 2021 Maserati Ghibli Base

The 2021 Maserati Ghibli is at par with the German sedan in terms of power. In terms of economy, the A7 sedan takes a lead. When it comes to interiors, both sedans are flourished with high-quality materials, but for more advanced infotainment, one should opt for the 2022 Audi A7 sedan. But if being a hooligan is something that is your mid-day adrenaline rush meal, the rear-wheel-drive Maserati Ghibli will definitely satisfy your urges.

The 2022 Audi A7 is more powerful and quicker than the 2021 Porsche Panamera on paper. In terms of performance and power delivery, there’s no comparison to the Porsche and its Panamera sedan. Porsche offers undeniable superiority in handling, the subtle styling, and the practical 4-door sedan is apt for families.

2022 Audi A7 Final Verdict

Besides the updates, the Audi A7 sedan will remain a strong competitor in its segment, an aggressive head-turning sedan with a powerful powertrain to flaunt.
