Self Study Program 478 – Audi A7 Sportback

VAG SSP 478. This Self-Study Programme provides you with general information about the Audi A7 Sportback. The Audi A7 Sportback is an entirely new class of vehicle. It unites the purist elegance of a saloon, the well-defined functionality of an Avant and the passionate dynamism of a coupé. The new Audi A7 Sportback oozes enthusiasm. Above the accentuated wheel arches, a prominently sharp dynamic line extends along the entire length of the vehicle. It imbues the Audi A7 Sportback with a unique “stealth” look. The perfect balance of puristic lightness and flowing lines creates a new statement of dynamism and elegance.

The striking trailing edge interacts harmoniously with the spoiler edge to provide a dynamic finishing touch to the muscular rear end. The innovative vehicle concept with its wide-opening rear hatch in coupé-like style is impressive not just because of its unusual design. The Audi single-frame radiator grille is trimmed with high-quality horizontal chrome struts and conveys an aura of elegance and progressiveness.

This re-interpretation of the radiator grille gives the headlights even more presence and character. The interior concept of the Audi A7 Sportback cossets the driver and passengers, giving them a feeling of complete security.

The cockpit is driver-oriented in design, i.e. the centre console leans towards the driver. Attractive inlays with continuous lines provide accentuation in the interior.

The Audi A7 Sportback has powerful yet efficient FSI, TFSI and TDI engines. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive delivers this power to the road superbly. The optional quattro with sport differential distributes drive power variably to the individual wheels, giving enhanced driving dynamics, agility and traction.

Nothing is more inspiring than a blank sheet of paper. A car came into being on one: contemporary, fascinating, new. The Audi A7 Sportback
