Audi has revealed local pricing and specs for its upcoming 2019 A7 Sportback, which will kick off at $131,900 before on-road costs when it touches down in November.
The range will start at with the 50TDI quattro, powered by a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel making 210kW and 600Nm. It's put to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, while a new 48V mild-hybrid system allows the cars to coast between 55km/h and 160km/h, automatic start/stop up to 22km/h, and 12kW of energy recuperation under braking.
Sitting alongside the A7 50TDI is the 55TFSI quattro, also priced at $131,900 before on-roads. Power comes from a 3.0 litre V6 turbo petrol, putting out 250kW and 500Nm. It's put to the road through quattro all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Standard semi-autonomous safety kit includes a head-up display, adaptive cruise control with stop&go, a 360-degree camera, autonomous emergency braking for forward and reverse, along with lane-keeping assist.
Inside, MMI Navigation with 'touch response' (the lower touchscreen for climate control) is standard, along with the Virtual Cockpit instrument binnacle. The front seats (sports units, electrically adjustable – naturally) are heated, and they're trimmed in Valcona leather upholstery. Audi's fancy 3D sound system, developed by Bang & Olufsen, is also standard fit.
Both 50TDI and 55TSI models ride on 20-inch wheels with adaptive suspension as standard, while Matrix LED lighting is also included. Regardless of trim, you'll get the S Line exterior package as standard.
A four-cylinder 45TFSI will arrive in 2019, with 180kW and 370Nm on tap. Pricing is yet to be announced.
