Audi A7 is a true performer at its core. Though it sports a diesel engine and some might argue the performance capabilities of a diesel engine over a petrol one, Audi managed to bring out the best in that too. While the S-tronic gear box system manages to reduce the fuel consumption and offer efficient gear shifts other factors too play in a key role in defining the performance calibre of the vehicle.
