The design of new models of the company “Audi” until recently adhered to the principle of “evolution instead of revolution”, but the car A7 of the second generation will be significantly different from its predecessor.
Chief designer Marc Lichte Company admitted that completed work on the appearance of the second generation fastback Audi A7. According to him, in the exterior of the model has changed dramatically, but the details of the project Marc Lichte, for obvious reasons, did not disclose. We only know that at the exterior Audi A7 was greatly influenced by the concept of Prologue.
Presented in a Los Angeles car show Prologue, which demonstrates a new design language Audi, remember the large hexagonal grille, narrow laser lights, laden with strong C-pillar forward, broad wings and low waist line of the body. In a single style with show-car Prologue, writes Autocar, will be sustained exterior design of new models A8 and A6. “Eight” will debut in 2016, “six” will hit the market in 2017.
It is expected that the new Audi A7, which debuts in the same year with A6, built on the second-generation platform MLB. Scale model engines make petrol and diesel engines up to 4.0 liters and a hybrid system with the ability to recharge the battery from the mains.
Price of new fastback as a result of generational change will not change much. In the European market the car can be bought for € 51 300. Recall that, Audi is preparing to premiere at the international motor show in Detroit second generation crossover Q7.
