Audi provides two engines to the U.S. This 3. 0-liter V-6 TDI diesel with an creates of 240 horse power and 428 lb-ft of torque carries above unchanged; this 3. 0-liter V-6 TFSI supercharged gas engine now creates 330 hp, upwards 20, though with the same 325 lb-ft of torque. Either one buddies to Quattro all-wheel drive and a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission.
While we lament that Audi won’t send its wonderful 320-hp twin-turbo BiTDI for the US., this 240-hp diesel-engined launches this A7 over a wave of torque and also creates acceleration along with good pressure. And also just about everything correctly while emitting little more than a subdued growl. There is certainly enough passing strength; the additional thrust from the high-performance diesel offered within European countries arrives mostly in triple-digit autobahn speed rarely stumbled upon in america.
The supercharged gasoline V-6 doesn't feel well as strong off line, although the moment moving, it's clearly much more reactive as compared to it is TDI mates - or perhaps many any turbocharged model within it's segment. This soundtrack is actually silky-smooth, not really threatening. The trade-off for the supreme manners can be gas usage much thirstier as compared to which of the TDI which noted 30 mpg within our 2014 test out.
