The new Audi A7 combines sporty elegance with first-class technology and safety, producing one of the most luxurious vehicles in the world. It also gives drivers the best of all worlds - it has the sportiness of a five-door coupe, but feels like a luxury sedan and has the versatility of a wagon.
The staff at Cavender Audi in San Antonio got to see, firsthand, just how
incredible the excitement is for the new A7 is.
We invite all of our Cavender family customers, which includes Range Rover, GMC, Cadillac and other luxury-vehicle owners, to Cavender Audi to see the all new Audi A7.
From a design standpoint, Audi uses words like "athletic" and "dramatic" to describe the A7, and claims the car "elevates engineering to an art form."
Inside, you'll find a refined cabin that exudes class and comfort, featuring anatomically-contoured Valcona leather seats which, in the front, can be adjusted into eight different positions.
The interior in this car is second to none. You won't find this kind of luxury elsewhere.
The steering wheel is also wrapped in leather and provides easy access to the vehicles Driver Information System (DIS), navigation, audio controls, Bluetooth operation, voice control, and stereo controls.
The A7 is equipped with Google Earth, and information can be requested by writing on the navigation pad or via voice prompts.
The technology in this vehicle is unbelievable. You can just name a city or restaurant, and it will immediately give you directions and other information.
A 600-watt BOSE Premium Sound System is standard, but a 15-speaker, 1,200-watt Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System is also available, turning the A7 from a luxury coupe into a "virtual concert hall on wheels," as the Audi website suggests.
The new A7 is more than a design icon, however. Powered by a 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 that produces 310 horsepower and 325 lb-ft. of torque, it also sets a high standard for performance and handling. The suspension is adjustable as well, which allows drivers to create the type of driving experience they'd like - sporty and dynamic, or more comfortable.
When you're looking at high-line vehicles, your options are more limited, so when something new and unique like the A7 comes along, it really sparks excitement throughout the class. No matter where you go, this car stands out. There's nothing else like it on the road today.
