The next Audi A7 will be more styling than today's car
Elements of Audi's Prologue concept will be used to inform the next A7
A more radical design is promised for the next-generation Audi A7, according to man who has designed it.
Marc Lichte, who joined Audi from Volkswagen earlier this year, has already completed design work on the second-generation A7, which will be launched in 2017.
Elements of the design of the new A7 have already been previewed in the recent Prologue concept at the Los Angeles motor show, although Lichte wouldn’t give specifics.
The Prologue previews not only the new 2017 A7 but also the 2016 A8 and 2017 A6, designs for which have all been signed off. It is the A7’s design that will be the most radical of the trio, according to Lichte, and there will be much greater visual differentiation between the trio and other future Audis.
The A7 will be based on the Volkswagen Group’s Audi-engineered, second-generation MLB platform, with its engine range expected to be cherry-picked from the 2016 A8 range.
