What's New For 2019

The Audi A7 gets a full redesign for the 2019 model year. The exterior design keeps to the original A7 foundation but adds sharper lines and a more defined look. A long hood and tapering rear roofline give the A7 a sporty look. Inside, technology takes front seat, with multiple color displays, reduced number of knobs and interactive functionality. A new powertrain consisting of a 3.0L turbocharged V6 and a 7-speed transmission is also introduced for 2019.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles
  • Hybrid Component: 8 Years / 100,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Compare the 2019 Audi A7

Loading Comparison...


There are more expensive cars, and cars with more power and luxury, but if ever a car felt like a private jet, it’s the 2019 Audi A7.

After a sensational first generation, the Audi A7 begins its second generation with the 2019 model. It’s more rigid and lighter, though it’s bigger. The wheelbase has increased by 0.5 inch and the overall length by 0.8 inch, providing a boost in rear legroom of 0.8 inch.

The new A7 is also about tech, with a mild-hybrid system that powers accessories at stoplights and idle, and the evolution of the infotainment interface with digital displays and two big screens—no buttons, no more mouse-like knob to click.

The high-performance Audi S7 and RS 7 are derivatives of the A7, but they aren’t redesigned for 2019. We review them separately.

The A7 changes for 2019 mimic those in the less breathtaking A6, also beginning its second generation, and using the same new powertrain. The new engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 making 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. That’s the same power but significantly more torque than the supercharged V-6 it replaces, resulting in more pull from a lower speed. The transmission is a beautifully engineered and well-proven 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, mated to all-wheel drive. The 8-speed traditional automatic available in last year’s A7 has been dropped.

On the outside, the 2019 A7 sports a grille that’s lower and wider. The sheetmetal of the long hood has been reshaped, the character lines have been sharpened, and the rear haunches made more muscular. New taillights are part of a design that fills the width of the rear end.

Safety-wise, the A7 gets nearly every feature known to man, including two self-parking systems (one of which uses a smartphone to park the car in a garage, for people who aren’t capable of doing it themselves), and a unique forward cross-traffic system.


The A7 comes in three models: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige.

The 2019 A7 Premium has an 8.6-inch touchscreen, 19-inch wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, keyless ignition, heated front seats, LED headlights, and a power liftgate.

Premium Plus get a 12.3-inch gauge display, a surround-view camera system, and Bang & Olufsen sound. The Prestige adds cooling and more adjustments for the front seats, 20-inch wheels, and a head-up display. Safety features include front and rear parking sensors, forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitors.

Options include navigation with traffic and Google Earth views, and more adaptive safety features, including night vision, a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, an exit warning system that alerts occupants to oncoming cars or bicyclists, active lane control, and automatic high beams.

Performance options include a sport suspension with firmer tuning and slightly lower ride height, an air suspension paired with adaptive dampers, a sport differential, adaptive steering, and 20- or 21-inch wheels.


The fastback profile is sleek, graceful, elegant, and sexy, defining the car’s character. The 2019 lines are more chiseled than before, and it’s just shy of one inch longer. The best description of it is a four-door fastback.

The Audi soft-trapezoidal five-point grille is lower and wider, while the air intakes on either end of the grille are taller and wider. New distinctive character lines flow over the very long hood. On the sides, there are sharper sculpts under the doors and over the rear wheels.

There is an integrated rear spoiler that’s part of a line that extends across the rear and aims back at a 45-degree angle. The spoiler stays down around town, only rising at 75 mph. The LED taillights span the rear, and put on a brief dance when the car is unlocked.


The cabin has been considerably modernized, although it remains somewhat sterile, despite the luxurious feel thanks to the highest-quality materials. There is Alcantara and other leathers, open-pore wood, and polished metal trim. The fit and finish is precise. There are no fewer than 60 shades of ambient lighting.

Two new screens, canted toward the driver, dominate the center console, with a third screen available with Virtual Cockpit digital gauges. This screen is the largest, at 12.3 inches.

The two standard screens are part of the redesigned MMI Touch Response system. Gone are buttons and the familiar rotary controller that reviewers and owners first hated and later appreciated and loved. Now it’s touch controls and voice commands. The larger top screen (10.1 inches) is for navigation, music and phone; while the lower screen (8.6 inches) displays drive modes and climate settings, and accepts handwritten inputs for navigation addresses, phone numbers, and the like. The new MMI interface is fast, responds to pinch and swipe, and provides haptic feedback so users know commands have been accepted.

The front seats are comfortable, supportive, and multi-adjustable, and there’s a lot of room in front. There is good rear legroom, increased by 0.8 inches for 2019.

The fastback/hatchback shape provides more cargo space, if not more rear headroom, than a normal sedan. There’s a generous 18.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, more than any sedan’s trunk; and with the rear seat folded there’s 49.1 cubic feet. That’s more than a crossover.

Driving Impressions

The all-new A7 is quick to accelerate, smooth at speed, agile around town and in the corners, and compliant and polished in its ride. The powertrain is strong and responsive, and the dynamics are sure-footed.

The switch from a supercharged to turbocharged V-6 makes sense, as it brings a giant increase in torque, from 325 to 369 pound-feet, while being at least as fuel-efficient. The new A7 maintains its 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds, fast enough for anyone except maybe a hardcore sports-sedan buyer.

The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is smooth and quick to downshift for effortless passing.

The new all-wheel-drive system uses a 40/60 front/rear torque bias. This system can cut torque to the rear wheels altogether to save fuel mileage when cruising, or can send about 80 percent of the torque to wheels that have better grip, for maximum traction on snow, ice or other slippery surfaces.

The brakes on the A7 use six-piston calipers with 13.8-inch ventilated front rotors.

The standard suspension uses basic springs and shock absorbers (dampers), with a sport package having a slightly lower ride height and stiffer shocks. An available active suspension with air springs and adaptive dampers enables the A7 to glide comfortably over ruts and bumps, even with the optional 21-inch tires.

Audi also offers all-wheel steering and a sport differential, to help the A7 pivot in the corners; they’re full-on sport sedan features. The all-wheel steering varies the front steering ratio between 9.5 and 16.5:1, while turning the rear wheels up to 5 degrees opposite of the fronts at parking lot speeds to cut 3.6 feet off the turning circle. At speeds up to 37 mph, it can turn the rear wheels 2-2.5 degrees opposite the fronts, thus virtually shortening the wheelbase. Audi’s sport differential vectors torque on the rear axle, splitting and shifting power constantly to improve traction.


The 2019 Audi A7 is a magnificent piece of engineering, with striking and elegant styling. The high-tech interior is dominated by big touchscreens, but it doesn’t overwhelm anyone who’s grown accustomed to tablet screens and pinch-and-swipe gestures. Ride and handling are composed to the highest level. It’s reasonably fuel-efficient, too.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
