Audi to reveal all-new A7 on Thursday

Audi to reveal all-new A7 on Thursday”

One of the original swoopy-coupe four-doors is ready to enter a new generation.

Headline news is the A7 will come with Level 3 autonomous driving aids that, on freeways, allows the German four-door coupe to start, stop, accelerate and steer without the need for even a hand on the steering wheel. The new auto follows hot on the heels of the next-generation Audi A8, and our exclusive image below provides further clues to its looks.

Expect the all-new A7 to be revealed in the metal just before the year ends.

While there isn't much to glean from the teaser, there are a few things we can assume about the new Audi A7. It looks like the A7 will adopt the rear design of a mainstream vehicle and will get the same continuous tail lamp design as in the A8 but the significant changes will come in the form of technology used as also active and passive safety features. The taillights will probably carry similarities, as well, although I'm personally hoping that silly chrome strip from the A8 won't make an appearance. It will likely carry a variety of engines from I4s to V8s, and it may also have the same 48-volt mild hybrid tech as the A8.

Audi has said that the new vehicle would be shown later this year, so there is speculation that a public debut in the USA could come at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show late next month.

Created to once again go head-to-head with the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, Porsche Panamera and the next Mercedes-Benz CLS, the new sporty four-door coupe will be based on the same Major League Baseball evo platform as both its Porsche rival and the Audi A8.

What's the financial break-even point for the Chevrolet Bolt and Volt?
