At a special event in Ingolstadt in October 2017, Audi unveiled the new second generation A7 Sportback II to the public.
Lifback is widely produced at the Neckarsulm factory in Germany. Commencement of sales of the new model in Europe is scheduled for February 18, after which the car will be available in Russia.
When creating the new body of the Audi A7 Sportback 2022, German brand designers borrowed from the Prologue study released to the public in 2016 with the flagship sedan Audi A8 (D5).
Overall, the new Audi A7 Sportback II is not much different from its predecessor, which started in 2010. There are enough mediation changes, but they attract more attention to redesign than full-generation transformation.
At the front, the fifth door has a shield-shaped grille, hexagonal, and headlights are given a special notch to emphasize the “look” of the car. The basic model comes with full LED lights.
The LED lights of the HD matrix, which can compress individual parts so as not to surprise incoming drivers, are available for an additional charge. The top variant is matrix lamps with a high laser beam. Cars with this look have different “blue” spots in the lighting fixtures.
The new Audi A7 Sportback 2022 retains its horizontal silhouette, but the bonnet is slightly longer, making it look more powerful. The shape of the side door handles has changed, and the “lumbar line” will no longer be pronounced as in the first generation elevator, visible only above the wheel arches.
The back section is indicated by a red diode bridge that connects the lamp together. It is interesting that the rear lights create a real light game when the doors are opened / closed. There is also a rear spoiler that extends only at high speeds (over 120 km / h).
There are 15 body colors available for the new A7, including eight new colors. In addition, customers are offered a variety of privatization options. For example, a car can be ordered with an S-Line package, which makes bumpers, sills and a number of other external components look different.
Although the dimensions of the new 2022 Audi A7 Sportback are almost unchanged, the designers were able to extend the interior by 21 millimeters, as well as reduce the space on the rear passenger heads.
In addition, the interior of the liftback is equipped with new seats. In front are chairs with many adjustment options, massage functions and ventilation. At the back there is a three-seater sofa as usual, but the car can also be ordered with two individual seats. The interior comes with regular leather, and a variety of leather options are available at an additional cost.

Future versions with a four-cylinder petrol and diesel engine will appear, but both will receive a “soft hybrid” system, that is, a start-up generator powered by a separate 48-volt network and allows shutting down. the engine in traffic jams and at a speed of 55-160 km / h when the vehicle enters the shoreline. According to German experts, the system saves 0.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.
