What Is the 2015 Audi A7?

The 2015 Audi A7 is a large four-door car with five seats, a coupelike profile and a hatch rather than a trunk, comparable to the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo. Another competitor is the Porsche Panamera. It comes in just two trim levels, named for its two engine choices: the gasoline-powered 3.0T Premium Plus and the diesel-powered 3.0 TDI Premium Plus. All-wheel drive is standard. Performance variants of the A7, covered separately, are the S7 and RS 7.

What's New on the 2015 Audi A7?

Newly standard for the 2015 model year are four-zone automatic climate control and a blind spot warning system.

How Does the 2015 Audi A7 Compare to Other Luxury Hatchbacks?

The only competitor that matches the A7's style is the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, which is more expensive in higher trim levels and less efficient, especially compared with the A7's diesel option. BMW has a diesel alternative in the 535d, but it's a traditional sedan with less impressive performance. The Lexus GS 450h hybrid is an efficient competitor with sporty leanings. In many ways, the A7 is a benchmark for its combination of performance, style, technology and presence.

What Features in the 2015 Audi A7 Are Most Important?

The A7 3.0T is powered by a 310-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter gas V-6 engine with stop-start technology, and the 3.0 TDI has a 240-hp, turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6. An eight-speed automatic is the only transmission. A sport suspension is optional.

Significant standard features include 19-inch wheels, a power moonroof, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, a power rear spoiler, heated leather front seats, a navigation system with Google Earth maps, and automatic air conditioning. Notable options include 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, S Line ground effects, a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo, ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

As is required in all new cars of this model year, the A7 has front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Standard safety features include six additional airbags and a blind spot warning system. Available features include forward collision warning with adaptive cruise control, night vision with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and prevention, and side-impact airbags for the backseat.

Should I Buy the 2015 Audi A7?

The A7's dynamic styling, high-quality interior, spirited acceleration and in-class fuel economy are all points in its favor. Just make sure you're comfortable with its marginal outward visibility, low seats and a hatchback cargo area that's versatile but a bit narrow. Also note that the price rises quickly with options.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
