Audi A7 Sportback Now in Malaysia – RM609k
Audi Malaysia has introduced their latest addition to the local market, the all-new Audi A7 Sportback. It is offered here in a single variant that features a 3.0 TFSI engine supplemented by a mild hybrid system (MHEV).
Exterior-wise, the A7 Sportback is an athletic sculpture with a long engine hood, long wheelbase and short overhangs. The car is 4,969 mm long, has a wheelbase of 2,926 mm and is 1,908 mm wide, but stands only 1,422 mm high.
The Malaysian market model gets the sporty S line exterior package as standard and gets HD Matrix headlights, 20 inch wheels and a flat light strip that connects the rear lights. There is also an integrated spoiler that extends automatically at 120 km/h.
Inside, the futuristic cabin features a clean design language with horizontal lines and sleek instrument panel that provide for a feeling of airy spaciousness. The centrepiece is a 10.1-inch display with MMI navigation plus, as well as the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit. Meanwhile, an 8.6-inch lower display provides access to the climate control system, comfort functions and text input.
A new head-up display that projects important information onto the windshield and a Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with 3D sound are also included.
As mentioned, the A7 Sportback is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 TFSI engine that churns out 340 hp and 500 Nm of torque. The MHEV uses a 48-volt primary electrical system to reduce fuel consumption by up to 0.7 liters per 100 kilometers.
A belt alternator starter (BAS) works together with a lithium-ion battery and achieves a recuperation performance of up to 12 kW when braking. Its quattro drivetrain uses the efficient ultra technology that activates rear-wheel drive as needed.
Equipped with a seven-speed S tronic transmission, the A7 Sportback sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h.
As for pricing, the all-new A7 Sportback retails for RM609,000. It rolls off the assembly plant at the Neckarsulm site in Germany.
