Self Study Program 990203 – The 2012 Audi A7 Vehicle Introduction

VAG SSP 990203. Audi is once again breaking new design ground with the A7, combining athleticism and elegance on a grand scale. The sleek five-door coupe measures 16.31 ft (4.97 meters) in length and 6.27 ft (1.91 meters) in width, but only 4.66 ft (1.42 meters) in height. Its long hood, flowing C-pillars, and sharply sloping roofline result in a dynamic overall design.

The Audi A7 is three vehicles in one: a comfortable and prestigious sedan with the excitement of a coupe and the functional utility of a station wagon. It features a lightweight body comprised of numerous aluminum components, a powerful and highly efficient V6 engine, a sport chassis, and advanced assistance and multimedia systems.

The 2012 A7 offers great long-distance driving comfort without sacrificing its substantial sport  characteristics. Interior noise levels are very low even at high speeds, with the engine providing subtle acoustic feedback as its power unfolds.

Making these excellent acoustics possible are new structural design methods and high-end materials. These materials include microfiber fleeces and multifunction parts, such as acoustically active wheel well shells and underbody panels.

The interior of the A7 reveals workmanship on a craftsman level. Layered wood veneers are a treat for the senses, with optional ambient lighting adding subtle highlights to the interior.
