Sportiness which cannot just be seen, but above all
experienced. But the Audi A7 Sportback does not just
impress with its dynamism, but also with its efficiency.
Intelligent lightweight construction leads to reduced
vehicle weight and optimised fuel consumption. The driver
information system has an efficiency program which gives
direct advice on driving in a more fuel-efficient manner.
The start-stop system switches the engine off automatically
when the car is at a standstill. And of course, the engines
have been developed to use as little fuel as possible.

FSI®/TFSI®
The compressor is a central element for the boost pressure
generation. Or, put another way, it ensures outstanding
torque even at low engine speeds. The compressor is a
highly integrated, mechanical charging module situated
between the two cylinder banks. The rotor unit, the electrically controlled butterfly valve in the bypass bend and the
engine-side heat exchanger of the indirect charge air cooling system are integrated in one single-piece cast metal
housing. The four-blade rotors mounted on an anti-friction
bearing compress by 160° and are covered with a coating
which allows the gap dimensions in the construction to be
kept to a minimum.
Timing drive chain
High-pressure pump
Integral charging module
Switchable water pump
Many hours of development.
Thousands of miles of testing.
And for what reason?
In just a few seconds you will understand why.
TFSI® technology is employed in the new Audi A7
Sportback. Its unique feature is that it combines
the advantages of FSI® with a supercharger, which
ensures even better power delivery.
3.0 TFSI engine
The 3.0 TFSI quattro generates a hefty 220 kW of
power. An innovative mechanically-driven supercharger system with charge air intercooler is employed here and turns the six-cylinder engine into
a compact powerhouse with moderate fuel
consumption. It is not just the peak torque of
440 Nm which is impressive, there is also the
torque curve: with at least 90 % of the maximum
torque being available across an engine speed
range of 2,900 to 4,500 rpm. Thanks to its very
spontaneous responsiveness and exceptional
power delivery across the entire speed range, the
six-cylinder engine promotes a particularly
dynamic driving style. The Audi A7 Sportback
accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds – and still
has plenty of power reserves left after that.

for the Audi A7 Sportback. In conjunction with the
dual clutch S tronic transmission and quattro®
permanent all-wheel drive, the 2.8 FSI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.3 seconds.
All Audi A7 Sportback engines comply with the
EU5 emissions standard.

TDI
The piezo injectors open and close
in fractions of a millisecond and inject fuel several times into the combustion chamber at pressures of up
to 1,800 bar. In some cases, an injection process can involve the injection of the tiniest of amounts
weighing less than a thousandth of
a gram.

3.0 TDI engine (180 kW)
A diesel on the podium: the R15 TDI.
One in every two Audi cars sold today is a diesel.
What sounds perfectly normal now was cause for
huge excitement 20 years ago, when Audi revolutionised the market with the first 2.5 litre TDI
engine. Since then, developments such as common
rail technology have made TDI even more efficient. Piezo injectors ensure the fuel is finely and
precisely distributed. Consequently, since the
first TDI, the engines have become around 30%
more economical, whilst specific output has in-
creased. So it was only logical that a diesel car
should then enter the world of motorsport. With
great success: in 2006, the Audi R10 TDI became
the world's first diesel powered race car to win the
Le Mans 24 Hours – a victory which it has repeated
several times over, most recently in 2010.
Two powerful TDI versions are available for the
Audi A7 Sportback, which of course operate with
intelligent common rail diesel technology. With a

hefty 500 Nm of torque, the 180 kW 3.0 TDI
quattro accelerates your A7 Sportback from
0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds. And the 150 kW
3.0 TDI, with an extremely low consumption of
5.3 l and CO₂ emissions of just 139 g, proves that
efficiency does not prevent driving pleasure.
S tronic
31
S tronic: Two multi-plate clutches
ensure sporty dynamics and a high
level of efficiency.
What is the benefit of two clutches?
A double saving: time and energy.
The 7-speed dual clutch transmission enables
rapid gear shifting with hardly any perceptible
break in propulsive power and is therefore
particularly efficient.
The latest quattro® with crown gear differential and
torque distributed selectively to each wheel combines
mechanics and electric in an intelligent manner. Up
to 85% of the drive torque can be distributed to the
rear axle and up to 70% to the front axle. This ensures
unrivalled traction and excellent driving dynamics.
As long ago as 1985, Walter Röhrl tested this technology in the Sport quattro S1 – and was suitably
impressed. Audi drivers share his enthusiasm to
this day, because the modern S tronic changes gear
in a flash. To do this, two multi-plate clutches
serve the different gears. One large clutch transfers the torque via a solid drive shaft to the gearwheels of the odd-numbered gears. A second
clutch serves the even-numbered gears via a hollow shaft. Both parts of the gearbox are permanently active, but only one of them is actually connected to the engine via the closed clutch. For
example, when the driver accelerates in third gear,
the second part of the transmission is already set
in fourth gear. The gear is changed by switching
the clutches – the first clutch opens while the second one closes very quickly. The gear change
takes only a few hundredths of a second and takes
place with practically no break in propulsive power.
It happens so quickly and fluently that the driver
hardly notices.
It does not matter whether the driver chooses the
fully automatic modes with the programme D
(Drive) or S (Sport) or changes gear manually
with the optional shift paddles – the gear change
feels precise and extremely smooth. Even with
all of this dynamic technology, the S tronic still
remains very efficient. Due to its high efficiency,
there is a reduction in both fuel consumption
and emissions.

Everybody defines driving dynamics differently.
We define it like this: drive exactly how you feel.

auto
Four modes are available to you: comfort,
dynamic, auto and individual, the latter mode
allowing you to determine yourself how the associated vehicle components should behave. The
comfort mode is especially suitable for providing
the most relaxed driving possible on long journeys.
The auto mode offers a generally comfortable yet
sporty driving experience. For particularly sporty
driving, for example on winding roads, there is
the dynamic mode.
In every mode, the vehicle adjustments depend
on the equipment present. Audi drive select
affects the engine, transmission and steering as
standard. In addition, you can, when available,
influence the adaptive air suspension with
damper regulation, the quattro® with sports
differential, the reversible seat belt tensioner
(part of Audi pre sense basic) and the cornering
light. The engine and gears react more spontaneously or in a more balanced manner to movements of the accelerator, depending on the mode
chosen. Moreover, the engine speeds at which
gear changes take place are varied – in dynamic
mode, they only happen at higher engine speeds,
while in comfort mode they take place at lower
ones. The steering can also be adapted to the
driving situation, from sporty and firm to comfortable. The threshold at which the optional
reversible belt tensioner (part of Audi pre sense
basic) is triggered is adjusted in the dynamic
mode. The vehicle height and the damping forces
of the damper regulation can be varied using the
adaptive air suspension. The optional sports
differential distributes the drive force variably
to the rear axle to attain a high level of agility
and acceleration performance while cornering.
In addition, the cornering light accompanies
the selected mode with its adapted swivelling
response.

quattro®/quattro® with sports differential
30
years of quattro®
With quattro®, we have created one of
the best all-wheel drive systems in the world.
Of course, that was not good enough for us.
quattro® is a permanent all-wheel drive system.
If the wheels on one axle of the vehicle lose grip
on the road and threaten to spin, then the power
is transferred to the other axle – automatically
and permanently distributed through the centre
differential. The basic distribution is 40:60 – 40%
of the power goes to the front axle, 60% to the
rear. The benefit is better traction during acceleration and improved safety due to exceptional grip.
So much for the technology. But what makes
quattro unique is really the driving feel. “As if you
are stuck to the road,” some customers say. We put
it like this: quattro gives you more feel for the
road and thus increased safety.
The optional quattro® with sports differential
further reinforces this unmistakeable quattro
feeling. Vehicles tend to experience understeer
when steering or driving into corners. This is a normal physical process: A moving object opposes a
quattro® with sports differential
continuously varies the amount of
driving force distributed to each
rear wheel and ensures high cornering agility and impressive driving
dynamics.
change in direction. The elastic tyres and the
suspension mounts tense up until the new direction has been adopted. When accelerating into a
corner, the load on the front axle is reduced and it
therefore transfers less lateral force to the tyres –
the vehicle understeers. With the sports differential on the rear axle, the tendency to understeer
is largely counteracted. This is because the quattro rear axle differential has been extended left
and right by a clutch system with two gear levels. They ensure that the individual wheels on
the rear axle receive different levels of torque.
The clutches are activated by an electro-hydraulic actuator. Depending, for example, on the
steering angle, lateral acceleration, yaw angle
and driving speed, the system calculates the
right distribution of wheel torque for any driving situation. In this way the power is specifically channelled to the outer rear wheel, when
steering or accelerating into a corner. The ef-
fect: the vehicle is effectively pressed into the
corner and follows the angle of the front wheels.
The variable left and right driving forces also help
stabilise the steering and the usual steering corrections are hardly necessary.

Follow your intuition it will get you to the right destination.
Our promise of “Vorsprung durch Technik” is one
that we keep in every area of an Audi – as demonstrated by the Multi Media Interface (MMI®) which
has undergone further development. The MMI is
used to operate a number of in-car media, the
navigation system and other comfort functions.
Until now, it has been easy to use the MMI – now
it is even easier. Fewer buttons provide a better
overview. The operating buttons for radio and media are logically located with the volume control.
The other six hard keys, for telephone or naviga-
tion functions for example, are located around
the central rotary/push-button control – for intuitive operation. Another new feature is the carousel layout in the MMI display. This provides you
with an even better overview, making it even easier for you to get to where you want to be. The optional MMI navigation plus has a special feature:
the unique MMI touch. It is located to the left of
the central control panel and is within comfortable reach, particularly in combination with the
new selector lever. MMI touch offers, among
other things, a new and intelligent way of controlling the navigation functions – by “writing”
letters or numbers on the touch- sensitive
screen with your finger. The system acknowledges the entry acoustically after each character. You can also thumb through the jukebox albums of your music collection – just one brief
stroke of the finger suffices.
MMI® touch: You can “write” on the MMI
touch using your finger. The system recognises letters and numbers. Compatible with
navigation and telephone; additionally you
can browse through the albums of your
music collection in the jukebox with a brief
stroke of the finger.
Navigation system: The optional hard disc
navigation system MMI Navigation plus with
MMI touch provides a 3D map view and a
three-dimensional display of famous buildings
and places of interest.
Media: Display of available media sources
such as the jukebox, inserted SDHC cards,
Audi music interface or CDs and DVDs;
display of optional TV tuner.
Audi pre sense
39
Because in an
emergency,
a second is
0.9 seconds too long:
Audi pre sense.
The new Audi A7 Sportback does not only come
with many new technical innovations but also,
upon request, with something extra special: a
sort of sixth sense – or Audi pre sense. Various
vehicle systems categorise different driving
situations and, where necessary, implement
actions for preventive occupant protection or
for collision reduction.
Radar sensors are fitted at the front and rear (depending on the equipment) and gauge the area in
front of and behind your Audi A7 Sportback. A
video camera also monitors the road in front of you.
This is located in the area of the internal mirror –
the highest possible point inside the vehicle – and
delivers 25 pictures per second with a resolution
that has yet to be matched in the field of auto-
motive engineering. In addition, the ESP control
unit transmits further data. Using these different
sources of information, Audi pre sense can create a
very realistic picture of the vehicle’s surroundings.
Audi pre sense basic includes various preventative
passenger protection systems that are activated
in the event of a critical driving situation. They
include tensioning of the front seat belts, activation of the hazard warning system and closing of
the windows and, if present, the sliding roof.
Audi pre sense front additionally monitors the
traffic ahead via the radar sensors of the optional
adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function. In
critical situations, the Audi braking guard contained with it warns the driver and if necessary in-
creases the braking power. In extreme cases, the
preventative protection systems are activated.
Audi pre sense rear monitors the traffic behind
the vehicle with the help of the rear sensors of
the optional Audi side assist.
Audi pre sense plus is included if ordering the optional adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function and Audi side assist. In addition to the functions of Audi pre sense front, Audi pre sense plus
activates the Audi braking guard in certain situations when a collision is unavoidable and initiates
a full braking action to minimise the severity of
the crash as much as possible.

Assistance systems
adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function
Because they protect something very valuable,
Audi active lane assist
Audi side assist
you will find our most outstanding employees working
in the area of vehicle safety.
adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function including Audi pre
sense front¹ is the heart of the driver assistance systems. On clear
roads, it maintains a chosen speed and keeps the correct distance
from the vehicle in front. In slow moving traffic or in a traffic jam it
regulates slowing down, starting up and crawling through traffic. At
all times radar sensors, a video camera and the sensors from the
parking assistant monitor the area around the Audi A7 Sportback.
Should they detect an obstacle, the driver is alerted by a signal tone
and a display on the driver information system.
Audi active lane assist¹,² supports you when travelling at speeds of
around 60 km/h or above if you inadvertently drift out of your
lane, for example, through inattentiveness. Before you cross over
the lane marking which is detected by the camera behind the windscreen, a gentle, corrective steering movement occurs. If the indicator has been activated, there is no correction. In the MMI, you
have the choice between two system settings (steering time early
[A] or late [B]).
If your vehicle is fitted with the optional head-up display, a display
also appears there. Identification of lane markings by the sensors
is dependent on the weather, lighting and quality of the marking.
Audi active lane assist can, therefore only provide assistance to the
driver – who is naturally required to remain attentive while driving.
The development of a new vehicle includes a
number of crash tests. At first as virtual tests on
computers, then later with the car itself in the
halls of the Audi Vehicle Safety Department. Our
engineers do not just evaluate data from their
own series of tests but also data from real accidents recorded by accident researchers and
scientists from the Audi Accident Research Unit
(AARU). The department was founded in 1998
and works together with the police and doctors
to establish the most accurate information possible about accidents. With the help of this information, our series of tests is continually being refined.
Vehicle safety at Audi focuses on people. This
means we develop anticipatory systems that
support you during every journey and that will
help you to avoid accidents where possible. To
achieve this, we put ourselves in your position and
it is from this basis that our technical innovations
arise – along with the required safety tests. This
also means that completely new tests sometimes
need to be developed to check the new technology. That is why we have designed a new methodology for research into anticipatory Audi pre sense
systems which is called “Virtual Test Drive”. On a
test track, drivers can be shown virtual obstacles
and other vehicles via video goggles and, in this
way, many critical driving manoeuvres can be
reenacted in a short amount of time.
We always do our very best, but remember: the systems can only work within system limits.

Audi side assist including Audi pre sense rear¹. Displays are integrated into the exterior mirrors. Operational from a vehicle speed of
30 km/h, Audi side assist uses two radar sensors (with a range of
approx. 70 m) to measure the vehicle's distance from other detected
vehicles, as well as the speed difference between them. If Audi side
assist classifies the speed difference and distance as being critical in
the event of a lane change manoeuvre, a display will appear in the
respective exterior mirror (information stage). This display will only
be noticed by looking at the exterior mirrors. When the indicator
is on and Audi side assist detects a vehicle approaching and rates the
situation as critical, the relevant display on the exterior mirror flashes
repeatedly (warning stage). The brightness of the display can be set to
one of five levels in the MMI.

LED headlights
<300 °C
Subject: Light
Daytime running lights with 18 individual LEDs
Conventional light bulbs reach temperatures of up to 300 °C. Due to their sophisticated technology, LED lights are somewhat more sensitive and should not get hotter
than 150 °C. Because of the engine, the temperature of the area around the headlights is already around 120 °C. In theory, then, LED headlights would need an additional cooling system to be able to work. However, the Audi engineers did not want to
spoil the good low-energy credentials of the LED headlights, so they quickly developed something completely new: a fan which directs heat away from the LED chips.
The special feature of this fan is its additional benefit. The high operating temperature of standard bulbs means that they can defrost the headlights, which LEDs cannot. The newly developed fan directs warm air from the LED chips directly to the
headlight lens and thus defrosts them and prevents them from misting up.

Less energy, more light:
the Audi A7 Sportback with all-LED headlights.
The Audi R8 was setting standards as early as
2008 as the first sports car with all-LED headlights. Now this special lighting is also available
for the Audi A7 Sportback on request. All-LED headlights not only require less energy than standard
lighting systems, but also provide a brighter
light which is perceived to be much more pleasant.
The dipped beam consists of a distinctive line of
three individual light modules. This makes the
Audi A7 Sportback unmistakable, even at night.
The main beam, daytime running lights and
indicators are also made in LED technology. The
use of the same material for all functions makes
completely new lighting effects possible. The new
Audi A7 Sportback, therefore, has the right light
for every situation: It has a motorway light
which, at speeds above 110 km/h, automatically
almost doubles the range of the light cone (from
approx. 70 m at dipped beam to 120 m with motorway light). In addition, the A7 Sportback has a
combined daytime running light/indicator light
unit and an all-weather light which makes con-
Indicator
ventional fog lights superfluous. The individual
LED modules are skilfully controlled to redistribute the light, reducing glare from rain or fog.

Night vision assistant/head-up display
Night vision assistant with highlighting of detected pedestrians
Pedestrians identified in the detection
area are highlighted in yellow.
Day and night.
Should the system detect an imminent
collision, the marking turns from yellow
to red and a warning tone will sound.
What is the difference?
The human eye is one of the most sensitive sensory organs. However, sometimes it may still miss
something. For example, when it is dark or you
have been dazzled. We always do our best to help
you in these situations. The optional night vision
assistant with highlighting of detected pedestrians
records the area in front of the vehicle using a
thermal imaging camera and marks any identified
pedestrian located between 15 and 90 metres
away with yellowing highlighting in the image.
Should the system detect an imminent collision
between the vehicle and an identified pedestrian,
then the colour of the marking will change to red
and a warning tone will sound. The night vision
assistant can be switched on or off via a button
on the rotary light switch. Pedestrian marking,
warning signals and picture contrast are configured in the CAR menu. The optional head-up
display forms a useful complement to the night
vision assistant. At any time it quickly projects a
clear, full-colour virtual image beyond the windscreen. The image content is portrayed directly
within the driver's field of vision minimizing any
driver distraction. The head-up display therefore
contributes to greater traffic safety. The image
content is configured via the CAR menu. As well
as displaying current driving speed and navigation data, information from the driver assistance
system and speed limit data can also be shown.
When the night vision assistant with highlighting of detected pedestrians is activated and a
potential danger is detected, a warning symbol
appears in the head-up display. The head-up
display can be adjusted to your seating position
to optimise viewing.

Lights and mirrors, exterior equipment
Light
xenon plus
headlights utilising durable gas discharge technology
for dipped and main beam ensure intensive illumination of the road and provide good uniformity and
range both close up and in the distance. The automatic
dynamic headlight range control prevents oncoming
traffic from being dazzled; including all-weather light;
low-energy LED daytime running lights (includes headlight cleaning system)
Light
adaptive light including variable headlight
range control
consisting of dynamic cornering light, static turning
light and variable headlight range control; the dynamic cornering light infers the course of the road from
the movement of the steering wheel and variably illuminates the bend by pivoting the xenon headlights;
operational between speeds of approximately 10 km/h
and 110 km/h. The static turning light automatically
switches on if the indicators have been engaged for a
while at a low vehicle speed and illuminates the new
direction in which the vehicle is travelling. The variable
headlight range control features a camera on the interior mirror which registers sources of light from other
road users. The range and width of the headlight beam
are continuously varied between dipped and main
beam to suit ambient conditions, ensuring that the
headlights provide good visibility without dazzling
other road users. The headlights also have 3 different
light distribution modes which are activated depending on the vehicle speed: town light, motorway light
and country light. These 3 light distribution modes
from the adaptive light and intersection light systems
are also controlled by the vehicle support system
based on navigation data, and with the aid of stored
route data from the optional MMI navigation plus with
MMI touch. The convenient functions of the lighting
assistant are supplemented by the intersection light,
which provides a broad spread of light from the front
lighting system, and by the travel mode, with GPS
assisted switching between right and left-hand drive
modes

Weights/capacities
Notes
¹ The figure given has been calculated in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (current version of Directive 80/1269/EEC).
² Weight of car, unladen, with driver (68 kg), luggage (7 kg) and fuel tank
90 % full, calculated in accordance with the current version of Directive
92/21/EEC. Optional equipment may increase the car’s unladen weight
and drag coefficient, whereupon the possible payload limit and the top
speed will be reduced accordingly.
³ The engine’s power output always goes down with increasing altitude. At
1,000 m above sea level, and for every additional 1,000 m, deduct 10%
from the weight of the outfit (trailer load limit + gross weight of the towing
vehicle). Figure for trailer load limit applies to factory-fitted trailer towing
hitch. If using the vehicle with a trailer towing hitch for commercial purposes, a digital tachograph may be required under certain conditions.
⁴ A vehicle’s fuel consumption and the CO₂ emissions do not just depend on
how efficiently the vehicle uses the fuel, but are also affected by driving behaviour and other non-technical factors. CO₂ is the greenhouse gas primarily
responsible for global warming.

At Audi, you get much more than an Audi.
Efficiency: standard in every Audi.
Anyone who chooses an Audi chooses a brand that offers its customers more. More individuality. More exclusivity. And more fascination.
Vorsprung durch Technik is the claim to which the
Audi brand is committed. It includes giving careful consideration time and again to each droplet of
fuel. For many years, Audi has been translating
this claim into tangible reality on all its models –
and as a developer of numerous innovations is
having a lasting influence on efficiency standards
in automotive engineering. Whether with the TDI,
FSI®, and TFSI® engine concepts, with transmission technologies or with the Audi Space Frame
(ASF). To achieve on-going improvements in energy
consumption, a number of intelligent efficiency
measures – specially tailored to each vehicle – are
combined. Efficiency with a methodical approach –
individual and standard. A commitment which is
already leading to convincing results. Audi already
has many models in its current range that emit
less than 140 g CO₂/ km. An effective way of re
ducing emissions. And just as impressive as the
fact that a large proportion of Audi vehicles already meet the strict EU5 emissions standard.
All this demonstrates the know-how of Audi –
and is what drives us on every day to harmonise
sportiness and efficiency in the future.
