A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Audi A7

Audi A7 2012

In true Audi fashion, the 2012 A7 delivers the exceptional performance, enjoyable handling and luxurious interior you’ve come to expect. However, they also combined those things with an innovative four-door coupe hatchback design that is anything but ordinary.

Key Features

A supercharged V6 engine, all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission combine to create an agile and powerful driving experience. A wealth of standard features, including a power liftgate, an MMI infotainment system, sunroof power heated front seats and supple leather upholstery create a luxurious ride, while the available options for blind spot monitoring, night vision and parking sensors ensure everyone arrives safely.

Changes for 2012

This is the first year for the 2012 Audi A7, which brings its innovative design and plethora of features at a price that is just a bit lower than others in its class.

What We Like

The bold statement that the A7 makes is enjoyable and attention grabbing. However, it’s the small things, like Google Earth navigation Audi Drive Select and the available MMI Touch that make this a car you really want to drive. You’ll also be impressed with the 24.5 cubic feet of cargo space that makes sure there is plenty of room for your luggage or whatever else you need to take with you. With its combination of exceptional handling and luxury features, there’s just too much to love about this model.

What Concerns Us

Those who are expecting a five seater be warned there is only seating for two in the back seat. While this is a great idea for making sure that those relegated to the rear seats are comfortable, it may limit it as a choice for some buyers who need the space.

Available Models

The 2012 Audi A7 features a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that delivers:

  • 310 horsepower @ 5,500-6,500 rpm
  • 325 lb-ft of torque @ 2,900-4,500 rpm
  • City/highway fuel economy: 18/28 mpg

Major Recalls

There has been one recall issued for the 2012 Audi A7. Some models could have a leak in the fuel injection system. If this occurs near an ignition source, it could result in a fire.

Common Issues

There have only been two complaints reported for the A7. The first was due to repeated tire “bubbling” that resulted in failure of the tire. The second was due to a loss of acceleration and power steering while driving.
