NEW Audi A7 Sportback.
Next-Gen Audi A7 Coming This Year With E-Tron Plug-In Hybrid Option.

Audi has been working on a replacement of the current A7 for a while and it seems that the Germans have finally settled on a date for its launch.

A report from France's AutomobileMag says it will debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, with a plug-in hybrid to be part of the family. The PHEV will use a four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to an electric motor. Six- and eight-cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be part of the regular lineup, with the S7 using a twin-turbo V6, and the RS7 a twin-turbo V8.

Built on the latest iteration of the MLB Evo platform, the new Audi A7 should be around 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than its predecessor. It's also believed to be a tad shorter, though its length will remain close to five meters.

On the outside, Audi's large four-door coupe will be inspired by the Prologue concept, just like the next A6 and A8. Inside, it will have completely new layout, similar to the Q8 concept with a Virtual Cockpit instead of analogue dials, and two touchscreen displays to control the main functions, though in an attempt to reduce the number of buttons, the Germans will might drop the MMI wheel.

The 2018 Audi A7 will be packed with technology, from gesture control to voice control, and self-parking to smartphone-controlling the car. Moreover, the list of features will include the latest active safety and semi-autonomous systems as well.

Design aside, the new A7 Sportback is going to shed a considerable amount of weight after making the switch to the MLB Evo platform shared with the new A8 and A6. The new underpinnings inaugurated with the latest Q7 will make the A7 not only lighter and faster, but also thriftier and more nimble around the corners.
Spy shots of the interior cabin are not available at this point, but we will get a taste of things to come once Audi will (finally) uncover the A8. For what it’s worth, the second generation of the all-digital instrument cluster (aka Audi Virtual Cockpit) will debut in the A8, so expect the fancy display to trickle down to the next A7 and A6 as well.

Audi is set to unveil the new A7 Sportback likely in the second half of 2018, with plans to kick off sales before the year’s end. Later in 2019, the already spied S7 Sportback will join the family and will be followed by the top-of-the-range RS7.
