Audi provides a pair of engines with the North America. This 3. 0-liter V-6 TDI diesel-powered with an can make of 240 hp and 428 lb-ft of torque holds more than unchanged; the 3. 0-liter V-6 TFSI supercharged gas engine right now creates 330 horsepower, upward 20, though with the similar 325 lb-ft of torque. A single one mates to Quattro all-wheel drive and a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission.
Whilst most of us lament of which Audi won’t send it is wonderful 320-hp twin-turbo BiTDI on the U.S., this 240-hp diesel engine launches this A7 on the wave of torque and also develops speed with good force. It will just about everything properly although emitting little more than a subdued growl. There is ample passing power; the additional steady thrusts of the high-performance diesel sold on The european countries will come generally on triple-digit autobahn speed rarely stumbled upon in the united states.
The supercharged gasoline V-6 does not sense well as muscle off line, nevertheless once running, it's evidently more reactive than it is TDI mates - or perhaps almost all any kind of turbocharged model inside it is segment. This soundtrack will be silky-smooth, definitely not threatening. This trade-off due to the best manners will be gas usage much thirstier than in which of the TDI which recorded 30 mpg in our 2014 test out.
