2023 A7 Sportback Performance

We have the 335 hp V6 to thank for a refined and continuous supply of power, though the A7 wasn't built to be a monster. Instead, it delivers those horses in a polite manner to the quattro AWD system. That being said, you'll hardly be disappointed by the brisk acceleration in day-to-day driving experiences thanks to the Audi A7's turbo lag being near non-existent. That's because the mild-hybrid system mitigates most of the hesitation from the turbocharger and allows for a near-seamless stop-and-go function. The A7 makes the run from 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, falling behind the comparable CLS 450 4Matic's 4.8 seconds. Sadly, the plug-in hybrid model with 362 hp is no longer available

Engine and Transmission

The Audi A7 is only available with one powertrain for this model year, with the PHEV model being discontinued. The engine on duty is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, aided by a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that produces 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, sending power through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The CLS puts out a higher 362 horsepower, but the torque figure is the same, and the standard Panamera is slightly less powerful, with 325 hp. For the A7, there are no other powertrain alternatives in the US, and the 3.0-liter TDI from yesteryear is no longer available. Diesel options, as the other end of the emissions spectrum to plug-ins, remain unpopular in the States.

2023 A7 Sportback Gas Mileage

The purchase cost of the Audi A7 may be high, but you're not going to be spending unnecessary money on fuel bills. The standard 3.0-liter turbo engine returns EPA estimates of 21/30/24 mpg, an improvement on the comparable Porsche Panamera 4's 18/24/20 mpg figures and close to the CLS 450 4Matic's estimates of 22/30/25 mpg.

When the 19.3-gallon fuel tank is full, the A7 will allow for an average range of around 463 miles.
