Pros Best Tech Available
Tens of thousands less than an A8
Style and Beauty
Cons Everyone will ask to see your car!
Summary Editor should update his review. For a tech website, he sure missed a few details. As the first reviewer stated Bluetooth streaming does work, I have it connected to my iPhone 4 and iPad. Car connection shows up just as any other Airplay device or speakers. Also, the car has it's own data connection, not connected through your phone as editor stated above. Audi Connect has it's own SIM card that comes with the car and you get 6 months for free on the data, 14 months on the traffic data and Sirius radio. Data is provided through T-mobile but it's only 3G and coverage is not always adequate. The connection can then be shared as the car creates it's own WiFi hotspot. Voice activated navigation and google search is great. With the push of a steering wheel button, simply say "Google Search" then your request, a few seconds later you have a list of destinations. Another great feature is the 5" color screen on the dash between the speedo and tach, in addition to the large center mount display. On the in-dash screen you can scroll through a variety of options including car data, telephone, media and nav, all independent of the big screen. Other features available: adaptive cruise, HUD, lane departure warning, blind spot warning and night vision.
If I had any criticism it would be the lack of sport seats. The suspension is tight and hugs the road, it would be nice to be held into the seats a bit tighter, if you like the ride of european cars, you'll love the A7. Power reserve will get you through any situation when necessary, use the paddle shifters to knock it down a gear or two, step on the accelerator and hold on.
Styling is second to none. The LED lighting all around helps to add the wow factor as do most new Audis. This is only a 4 seater so the center section of the back seat is for storage and does not have a seat belt or seat for that matter. The hatch is what makes this car practical, unlike the Panamara, it's shape is not at all distorted by a "hump" in the rear of the car.
All around a great car, great tech, style and luxury. Beware you will encounter a lot of looks and questions. Everyone will say "What a beautiful car!"
Pros Ferociously beautiful. Most gorgeous interior ever. Awesome techie stuff everywhere.
Extremely useful cargo space.
Cons More expensive than A6. Rear headroom poor if you are taller than 6'2" or so.
Summary Honestly, its awesome.
Very happy with it for the 4 days we've had it.
At least 3 thumbs up a day from random drivers.
Pros Design minus the spoiler. That spoiler or hanging piece of steel that pops up looks out of place
Power, this car can move
Although the car appears big at first it rides almost like a sports car
Fits 2 sets of golf clubs no problem
Very lush interior
Cons A con for Audi - this car will cannibalize the Audi A8. Not sure why anyone would buy that car after driving and seeing this one
Maybe too much technology
Really can't see any other
Summary I have a 5-series BMW and I test drove the Audi A7 and I have to say it makes the interior of my BMW seem cheap. On top of that, you won't find a better designed 4dr car in the market today with this much power and features at the price.
Pros SuperCharger work! Handles great and the cargo space layout works for bags of mulch!
Cons You can feel the real wheel bias at low speeds
smaller rear passenger space than A6
Summary I gave up an older Lexus SC430 when I got this A7. I got an A5 coupe drive and performance with space to carry friends around and the technology is amazing. Worth every penny I paid!
Pros The car does infact have bluetooth streaming and will work on an iphone
Cons Limted rear seating space.
Summary The a7 does support bluetooth streaming, and will work support the iPhone over wifi. The bluetooth streaming when coupled with the wifi creates one of the most compelling tech cars available today. I am able to drive down the street listening to my pandora account streamed over the cars wifi from my iphone, I am able to use the MMI track forward key to control the app and skip to the next song. I can download ablums via my rhapsody iphone app and have on screen control (next / back) over the queue via the MMI controls. The B&O system is light-years better than the default bose system as well, don't belive the hype it is worth it.
