On Monday, Audi unveiled the newest addition to its lineup, the A7 Sportback. The A7 is virtually identical to the Sportback concept that we saw at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, and it comes to market with a choice of four different V6 engines, two each of the gasoline and diesel flavors. At the top of the lineup is the 300-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6 found in the A6 sedan while a new 204-hp, 3.0-liter TDI diesel is expected to yield a combined 44.4 miles per gallon (U.S.) on the EU test cycle. Yes, please.
Front-wheel-drive A7s will be equipped with Audi's Multitronic continuously variable transmission while the Quattro all-wheel-drive flavors get the seven-speed S-Tronic dual clutch gearbox. All A7s will be equipped with a thermal management system, automatic-start-stop and brake energy regeneration as standard equipment.
