Quite recently and also quite surprisingly some images of a 2019 Audi A7 have surfaced. The car was actually caught in a distance doing rounds and performing initial testing wearing camouflage but with noticeable changes which we were able to depict even with the swirly camo on it. It appears that the second-generation A7 model is finally happening and we are looking forward to see more information about it than just the offered pictures.
The A7 made its debut in 2010 and since then it has had a lot of facelifts and redesigns already. The last one was actually made for the 2017 model year which saw it get new wheels, new options for its exterior paint job, and an array of inside features. But Audi is gearing for a second-generation A7 this time with a potential timetable set in 2019 which we will see this car appearing with many new additions and updates.
There is a lot of guess work to do here and a lot of the critics have already pitched their own ideas about the model coming out and the changes that they are issuing. Some of them do seem realistic while a lot of them are farfetched in a lot of ways. We were able to find out more about the release date and we bring you some news that we were able to get through our own research.

When is the Time table for Release of the 2019 Audi A7?
Since there is not definite time table for now for eth 2019 Audi A7 and it will probably debut a few years from now, we can only wait and speculate. The newest update which comes out for the 2017 model year is going to be released in the second quarter of 2016. The 2019 next-generation Audi A7 will probably be saved for mid-2019 when all the updates and changes have been done.
What might the price be for the 2019 Audi A7?
The newest 2019 Audi A7 model will probably add a bit of a higher price for the new version. Based on the current pricing, the base model will be available for $69,500 or the Premium Plus trim. The Prestige trim might go for $73,000 and it will also depend on the offered packages and engine options that might also be employed here.
Possible Updates for the Exterior
The newest 2019 Audi A7 will go through a lot of changes, but it is still hard to discern only through a spy photo which was taken from a distance. But it is noticeable that the car will have much thinner headlights compared to the newly updated model which is coming out now. Also we expect that the front end goes through some dramatic changes and that we also get to see the evolution of the grille design.
Compared to the current model the new grill will be wider but shorter with the points on the sides sharply defined. It actually reminds us a bit on the A8 model which will bring more luxury and flare to this car. The lower portion of the front fascia is also going to go through some changes and it appears that the air vents are going to be standalone units for this new car.
The rear end is going to get a slightly different shape compared to now. The rear glass has a kind of a bubble appearance while the overhang of the front end ahead of the front wheels is very much longer. Also seen is a small spoiler in the rear which makes for a sportier appearance of the car.
Inside Design for the 2019 Audi A7
The interior of the next-gen 2019 Audi A7 is currently not featured on any of the released pictures. But it is clear that the inside will change but do not expect it to differ dramatically as this is an Audi vehicle that we are talking about. We expect to see some styling changes for the dash and also a reshaped instrument cluster. We also assume that the infotainment screen will be carried over as a pop-out unit but it will be longer and thinner. The seating design is also going to be addressed a bit but do not expect the overall feel and appearance to change so much.
We would like to see more headroom and it is highly likely that they add some in the rear part. This is very much expected to happen thanks to the bubbly nature or the rear end of the car. Also expected is a bit more hip room and shoulder room as the model is supposed to change dimensions to accommodate this. All in all, the interior will have to change so it gets to be more refined and gets to be more driver orientated.
Which Drivetrain to Expect?
There are actually a few directions that the 2019 Audi A7 could be taken in terms of its engines. They have more options to pick from and all of them sound great. Due to the use of the MLB EVO platform, it could highly be possible that the car adopts a 3.0-liter, supercharged, V-6 which could in turn return with an output of 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet.
Markets that are outside of the US can also expect to receive a 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel option which will be good enough to produce 218, 271, or 320 horsepower.
Another potential option is the use of a 4.0-liter V-8 engine which could be borrowed from the Audi A8. This also means that the care could potentially produce 435 horsepower and 444 pound-feet of torque.
Top Speed and 0-60 mph
The acceleration specs for the 2019 Audi A7 are very hard to predict now. The model has not yet received an engine so this does not help with the expected speeding ability. But based on what the car might get and the specs that the rivaling models can provide we are certainly looking at an acceleration between 4 to 5 seconds to reach 60 mph and a potential top speed of 155 mph. Once the engine is established we will have more information about these specs.
Fuel Economy Ratings
We can say the same as far as the fuel economy of the 2019 Audi A7 goes. Since the engine is established we are also going to be able to learn more about the potential fuel consumption of the 2019 Audi A7. But since the weight is down, this could mean that the consumption is down. We are potentially looking at better fuel economy for his car.
Dimensions and Size
Although it was not stated that the 2019 Audi A7 would change its dimensions, it is highly possible that it will. First of all, the car does look a bit wider and it would be a very good change which would affect the interior spacing and comfort rates. Also thanks to the potential of using the MLB EVO platform, the 2019 A7 will probably shed some weight and allow better performance and fuel economy.
We are expecting that the safety for the 2019 Audi A7 gets to be enhanced. It will most likely be updated and we can get to see soma expanded and updated features on this one. The current version already has a great display of safety potential but the next 2019 A7 might benefit form the addition of some newly added technology. We will see what they decide to do here.
The upcoming 2019 Audi A7 car will probably tackle the same kind of competition it used to before. The car which you might have in mind is the BMW 6-Series Grand Coupe model which is already held in high regard and featured as one of the premier models in the segment.
