I step inside and it feels as though I’m at the controls of some sort of space-age vehicle. Sure, the leather seats and fine details in the décor are impressive, but the bleeding-edge tech is what really stands out. Screens here, haptic feedback controls there – it honestly feels like the future has arrived inside the A7.
The list of features associated with the myriad of controls before me is mind-boggling.
From 360 degree parking assist cameras to memory functions that – when set – automatically adjust to the individual when they climb behind the wheel, the Audi A7 2019 has it all. Oh, and two HD screens that display car features and controls, because, well, why not?
Although it’s not an entirely new concept, Audi Virtual Cockpit is slicker than ever. Replace the dials just beyond your steering wheel with all manner of displays such as sat-nav maps or your most cherished music playlist beamed directly from your smartphone.
Speaking of which, as an additional extra you can plug in Bang & Olufsen’s premium 3D sound system to pump out the uplifting tunes when you’re trapped in traffic.
