Audi Refreshes A7/S7 Sportback for 2015


Refreshed models receive subtle styling upgrades coupled with more power, new transmissions and cutting-edge infotainment.

Having debuted back in 2010, Audi has deemed the A7 Sportback in need of a facelift. So for 2015, the four-door coupe receives more power, new transmissions, lights and a new infotainment system. Enhancing its athletic design, Audi has revised the Singleframe grille, bumpers, tailpipes and headlights with LEDs coming as standard. Optional Matrix LED headlights combine with dynamic turn signals, which come standard at the rear.

The new A7 Sportback comes with a choice of alloys ranging from 17 to 21 inches, while new lightweight brakes come with certain engine configurations. Buyers will have a choice of two gasoline and three diesel units, ranging from a 3.0-liter V6 that sends 218 hp to the front wheels to the range-topping 4.0-liter TFSi unit in the S7 Sportback rated at 450 hp. Apart from the 3.0-liter TDI twin-turbo diesel, which delivers 320 hp and comes mated to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission, all engines come paired with a seven-speed S tronic transmission. FWD models receive a fully redeveloped dual-clutch box, while models with engines rated at 272 hp and above can supplement the quattro all-wheel-drive with a sport differential.
