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!"
