Audi A7 55 TFSI

AUDI A7 55 TFSI — forty years of quattro cred comes through bright and clear

I have a confession to make. I was completely bowled over when I walked around the back of this Audi A7 55 TFSI quattro sportback being delivered for test. Only when I noticed the new taillights did I realize that this is an all-new car. It happens occasionally, but I missed the releases. Then Lockdown came and the test car only arrived a year anon. And I was clueless to its existence!

Anyway, those rear taillights that spread right across the tailgate are now increasingly common on Audi’s top models. They proved to be animated too, which is a hoot. But there’s far more to this stylish new A7’s look too. Click here to read the full story. See below for South African specifications and test data…
