Audi has revealed its all-new A7 Sportback, priced from £42,925.

The model, which is available to order from August with first deliveries in early 2011, will have two petrol and two diesel engines at launch: a 2.8-litre FSI with 203hp, a 3.0 TFSI with 299hp, a 3.0 TDI with 203hp and a 3.0 TDI with 244hp.

The most efficient model, the 3.0 TDI 204hp, emits 139g/km CO2 and achieves 53.3mpg.

There is a Multitronic CVT automatic transmission for front-wheel-drive versions and a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission for quattro models.

Two specification levels – SE and S line – will be offered in the UK. Equipment will include xenon headlamps with LED tail lamps, powered tailgate operation, leather upholstery, electric seat adjustment and heating, cruise and parking controls, satellite navigation, the Audi Music Interface, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth phone preparation.

Options include parallel park assist, all-LED headlights, head-up display and adaptive air suspension.

Audi said the “sought-after Audi Sportback formula can now be enjoyed on an even grander scale in the all-new A7 Sportback, which in a similar vein to its A5 namesake integrates saloon car versatility and hatchback practicality into an elegant premium coupe silhouette”.
