We Find Out Whether Audi’s Sporty A7 Variant Is Worth the Extra Cash

When the Audi A7 debuted, it was a groundbreaking car. The combination of four-doors and a coupe-like profile turned heads and provided a sporty-yet-practical ride. The A7 and its performance variant, the S7, entered their second generation for the 2017 model year. The new model (carried over to 2018) is an artful evolution of the formula.

The A7 may not have been the first German “four-door coupe,” as the Mercedes-Benz CLS predates it. But the A7 and S7’s stretched fastback/wagon approach is far more usable, offering more rear seat space.

If you are in the market for this kind of vehicle, which Audi variant is right for you? The A7 is the more affordable option, while the S7 is the more potent one. Is that extra performance worth the extra money? What other features does the S7 offer that the A7 doesn’t? Read on to learn about both versions of this attractive, upscale, and practical performance/luxury car.

Keep in mind that the S7 and A7 are ranked and reviewed jointly on our site, so any links to the A7 will also include information about the S7.
