2012 Audi S7 – Click above for high-res image gallery

The 2011 A8 is the harbinger of things to come from Audi's award winning interiors, and the release of an additional spy shot of the S7's insides proves that the new navigation screen found in the automaker's flagship is set to proliferate throughout the Audi line-up.

As you can see in the image above, the seven-inch display that rises from the dash is fitted to the recently spied S7, and will also be included on the standard A7 when it goes on sale next year. The MMI Touch Pad, which also debuted on the all-new A8 and allows user to draw letters and numbers to control the navigation, phone and other systems, is likely to be an option on the A7/S7, along with the new A6. And speaking of the A6...

Audi's mid-sizer has been around since 2004, with an updated model bowing two years later, so it stands to reason that an all-new A6 is coming soon. Judging by the automaker's product cycles, we're expecting the 2012 A6 to bow in Detroit or as early as the Paris Motor Show and go on sale sometime towards the middle of 2011.

        They'll never listen. Simple, uncluttered design is always easier on the eyes. More features does not equal more luxury.

        To be honest, I'm not a fan of it either.

      Oh, technology again, audi again!

      Audi's have some of the starkest and blandness interiors on the market right now aside from the A8.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Gee, with the different woods, metals and color schemes the offer, yup I'd have to agree - boring.

        I didn't say the materials weren't good, but they don't have the most appealing designs in dashes as far as luxury cars go. And now all of their vehicles look too much alike. Look at the the new A8 vs. A6 vs. A4 is the same design in different sizes. When was the last time you saw a truly redesigned A4?

        One of the best designs they came out with was the 1999-2002 A6. I'm just saying they have gotten very conservative on interior and exterior designs. And I have riden in the new A5 and the A8.

        Actually some of the best designs as far as luxury cars right now interior wise is Infiniti. That new M's interior is thoughtful and artful.

        I was going to say cluttered and buttonerriffic. So distracting my computer crashed from loading the images. But nice materials, no doubt.

      I'm digging the interior.

      The C6 Audi A6 was facelifted in 2008 not 2006/

      The best just keeps getting better

      This might just be enough to give SimpleCar a coronary embolism.

      And to be truthful, there is a lot of stuff going on there. Ergonomic conservatism isn't particularly displayed here.

      it´s from the test mule, without chrome, wood, colors and other detailing of the final product. the A7 is slotted just below the A8, so i expect the interior in the final version to be as luxurious and outstanding as the new A8`s.

      Looks like a diesel from the numbering on the tach.....right?
