2012 A7: Combining Coupe, Sedan and Wagon Into One Car

Source: Audi | Published: Fri Jun 17, 2011

(continued from above)

The 2012 Audi A7 is the next evolution of Audi design, with short overhangs, a long wheelbase, an expansive hood and low-slung, sporty proportions. The Audi A7 stretches 195.6 inches in length and has a 114.7 inch wheelbase. Combined with its 84.2 inch width (with mirrors) and 55.9 inch height, the Audi A7 exudes elegance and confidence.

With its low roofline and integrated rear doors, the Audi A7 has a coupe-like silhouette. Other design elements that signify coupe styling are the frameless door windows and side mirrors mounted on the doors. The C-pillar stretches to the rear and flows into the shoulder, while the sharp tornado line begins at the headlights, extends across the fenders, over the doors and terminates in a gentle slope toward the tail lights, paying homage to the 1969 Audi 100 Coupé S. The Audi signature Singleframe grille is contoured at the leading edge of the hood, with a chrome surround framing high-gloss black lattices with chrome accents. The horizontal posture of the fascia emphasizes the width of the Audi A7, as do the wide, low air inlets and horizontal struts.

The Audi A7 comes standard with Audi's xenon plus technology, complete with new all-weather lighting integrated into the headlamp housings. The system replaces traditional fog lamps, whose would-be location in the air intakes now is occupied by two radar sensors for optional adaptive cruise control. The signature LED daytime running lights are standard.

Optional full LED lighting, an unmistakable element of Audi design, blends visibility and style with low energy consumption and an extended service life. In addition to the 18 LEDs used for the daytime running lamps and 11 LEDs employed for the turn signals, two powerful LED units comprise the low- and high-beam headlamps on each side. Tail lamps are fitted with LED lamps as well. The optional adaptive lighting system modifies the amount of illumination based on the driving environment, whether cornering, traveling in the city or on the highway.

The integrated spoiler automatically extends at 80 mph and then retracts at 50 mph. It can also be deployed and retracted manually via the push of a button. The two large, round tailpipes of the dual-branch exhaust system are incorporated seamlessly into the bumper and benefit from an attractive chrome application.

For those seeking an even more dynamic look, the Prestige package includes redesigned front and rear bumpers with air inlet grilles, extended side sills and a platinum gray diffuser insert.
