New Audi A7

post #1 of 67
Thread Starter 

So Audi finally showed us the new Audi A7 a couple of days ago, and I haven't seen any threads about this yet.





Seems to be the lovechild of an Audi A5 and A8, a sporty and large sedan.

What do you think of it?
Would you buy one?
Discuss!

the rear fascia kind of reminds me of an Oldsmobile Alero for some reason.

Right now my old man is torn between an A5 and A6 for his next car, this seems like a nice combination of the two, sporty but roomy! I'm trying to find out a price on it, but I suspect it'll be closer to £50,000 than he's willing to go...

Isn't most of the Audi visual charm their lack of size? This is needlessly closer to being just another big American family sedan. Not bad in its own right, but it's comparatively worse but more expensive than other Audis.

In what way? The A8 and A6 are both very popular and large (I see tens or maybe even hundreds of them a day, where I live), the Q7 is huge, and the R8 is not a small sports car. They're no bigger or smaller than anything MB or BMW puts out in the same segments.

and the counter would be this, the BMW Gran Coupe (which will be out as a 6-series, and knowing how closely BMW concepts tend to mirror the production versions, it will look just like this)

People actually buy A8s? Are A8s even sold in Europe? Having a large car predicated upon performance seems contradictory.

Big Beamers and Benzes are similarly silly.

+1. The A8 is a huge car, and in fact, it's wider and maybe longer than both the long wheelbase MB and BMW. The aluminum frame keeps the weight down, but the car is huge. The Q7 is huge also.

I guess is has to do with me getting closer to old age, but I have been taking a shine to A8's, S500's etc in the last few months. I love the A8 and this seems like a slightly smaller, sleeker version.
