Last year Audi won this category with the A5. This year the A5 is moved to second seat in favour of the A7. Desire for coupe like styling in a four door luxury package is the current trend and the A7 was one of the pioneers. Distinctly Audi up front, the A7’s roofline slopes dramatically in a style reminiscent of the ‘70’s fastback coupes. This long rear slope is not just cosmetic as the A7 offers the functionality of a hatchback. Performance, handling and comfort is typically Audi, with spirited driving dynamics and no-compromise fit and finish. While some may find the A7 styling a bit polarizing, it seems to be growing on a lot of people as demand for used A7’s has resulted in high retained values and the Canadian Black Book Retained Value Award for 2016.
