Default 2015 Audi A7 - RELEASE

Audi has officially launched the new 2015 A7. See the link below for information and in-depth videos on both the A7 and S7. Furthermore, the 2015 A7 will have LEDs and the HUD (no NV required) included in the Prestige Pkg.

Glad to see that my 2012 still looks as good as new. I actually prefer the 2012 Prestige front bumper and front LED curves over the 2015. I do like to new tail LEDs and the new exhaust.

If europe is getting this update this summer, wouldn't usa as well. There is one assembly line right? I guess the engines / transmission might differ for usa.

The full press release is on aw homepage.

I like the old style better too, it looks more agressive IMO, the new grill is diamond shaped like the A6, the headlights look A6ish too, the LED with the clusters looks better than the flush line and the bottom spoiler looks better without the center part.

The new tailights go with the LED shaped, which looks cool, but the shape is exactly the same.


The exhaust mmmmmm I dont like either, that is why I changed mine, but the rectangular shape is not sporty either.

It looks fantastic. This is exactly what a facelift should be - keep all the great parts, and improve the average looking stuff. Great job. I will be a new customer in 2015.

The audi.de site has a lot on the new A7 / S7 / RS7.

Here is the A7:

Thanks for the link. I noticed that there is no sun roof and the rear passengers have overhead controls. Hope that feature makes it our side of the pond.

My S7 is scheduled to arrive in port in Houston end of June and is a 2015. The order did change to show LED and HUD as standard now rather than options. So yes same body.

Facelifts will always be subjective, however, the Audi designers are smart enough to know they had a great design in the A7 and only added subtle changes.

I'm more interested in how the next-gen A7 will look.

I like the new front end, particularly the new matrix lights, and I like the rear end, BUT, the weird rectangular tailpipes on the A7 are, IMHO, awful. At least they didn't do that to the S7....

I love 'em.

Never liked the pipes on the current A7.

I like them too. The taillight horizontal element and the exhaust tips tie the rear together and make it appear wider.

I am confused. If I order a new A7 in US now , do I receive a 2015 model ? Is this the same 2015 model to be sold in Europe ? When can I order the car with the 330 HP engine ? Thanks

Yes

Sort of - The US export lacks some features that are available to the rest of the world.

As soon as Audi says that they are available in the A6. All the A6/A7 engines produce more horse power than what is advertised now.

That extra 20 hp will likely only be a slight change in tune. Or simply a change in marketing - as you wrote, the 3.0T engine output is underrated now.

I always thought they should have launched the 2010 concept as was !, interesting comparing the front lights and grill of the 2010 concept to the 2015 model. I prefer the more integrated look of the exhaust tips on the 2010 concept.

I'm pretty sure USA will get the new model next year as MY2016.
The MY2015's order guide is already out and people are making orders, with expected delivery dates coming up in June/July/etc.
Audi is not going to change this mid-year, so they are going to wait for the next model year cycle to start, which is going to be early next year.
Also, I believe Europe usually gets the newer models before USA.

Thanks for the answers.. I am even more confused now, it looks like the US will get a 1015 and Europe a 1015 1/2 model during the year of 2014. It doesn't make sense to call a 2015 model in Europe a 2015 and the same car in US a 2016 model. People who ordered a A7 recently will get a 2015 model but not the same car that will soon be available in Europe, correct ?

It's interesting to see how Audi is moving almost its entire fleet to look like Iron Man's face...
