The 2020 Audi A7 is one of the best attractive Audis on auction today, but it’s additionally one of the best applied cars in its lineup. The sportback architecture and appearance looks glossy and luxurious, yet the auto that comes forth for the ride agency there’s an affluence of calmly attainable burden space.
For addition attractive for a comfortable and adventurous admirable tourer to booty on vacation, an A7, S7 (the adaptation acclimated in this test) or RS 7 would all assignment wonders. Removing crossovers from the equation, the A7 alone avalanche abbreviate of the A6 Allroad in the numbers game. An A7 nets you 24.9 cubic-feet of amplitude (same for S7), but the A6 Allroad brings that up to 30 cubic-feet. Still, the A7 is far added commonsensical than an A6 (13.7 cubic-feet), and it’s appropriate on par with the Q5 (25.1 cubic-feet). You can alike get the car with an air abeyance that keeps the rear from billowing beneath all the weight chucked over and abaft the rear wheels.
Note that I use altered accessories than Riswick out in Portland: Two attache accoutrements sized (24 inches long, 15.5 wide, 10 deep); one attache attache (21.7L x 13.7W x 9 D); one medium-size attache you accept to analysis (24.5L x 16.8W x 11.5D) and two larger, full-size accoutrements (33.8L x 21.5W x 13D) and (28.1L x 18W x 10.5D).
Predictably, the bear is powered. Once in, I noticed that the aloofness adumbration looks like it will bind attache stacking. There is a nice cobweb acquaintance you can prop up on the adumbration itself for alike added privacy. This actuality a “Sportback,” the bend of advance on the roof is adequately aggressive. There’s no mistaking it for a square-back wagon — any and all taller items charge to be shoved added into the hatch, as acme becomes a absolute affair in front.
Stacking a attache on top of addition was absurd with the adumbration in, so I removed it to see what we could absolutely fit into the hatch. I’d advance accomplishing the aforementioned if you’re activity on a trip. With that gone, I was able to fit both full-size suitcases, the average bag and two attache suitcases. Plus, there was some roof extra in the advanced corner. It concluded up actuality aloof the appropriate admeasurement atom for the adorned bag (22L x 8.8W x 12D). My aboriginal attack at closing the bear with the attache in advanced failed, but aback I angled it back, the bear appropriately pulled shut. Its arch bend was aloof a atom too alpine for that abbreviate breadth appropriate at the loading zone.
Next, I approved to assemblage the two full-size accoutrements on top of anniversary other. This didn’t go as well, and it’s a altogether acceptable acumen to buy an A6 Allroad over an A7. I was able to fit four full-size accoutrements in a 2020 A6 Avant I busy in Germany aftermost year for a vacation with three friends. It almost fit all four, but the bear was alpine abundant that it would abutting every time. We ample the accoutrements aloof as you see the two ample here. Unfortunately, the bend is too astringent in the A7 and won’t abutting with two full-size accoutrements ample like that.
Assuming you don’t accept to booty any added than two bodies anywhere, the rear seats bend bottomward to acknowledge a badly all-embracing space. Since the roof gets taller against the average of the car, you can fit alike beyond items in that you couldn’t before. There isn’t abundant this car won’t absorb in max account mode. Don’t apprehend to acquisition alike added allowance beneath the floor, though. Lifting up the attic alone reveals a subwoofer and wheel/tire changing/fixing equipment.
We’re consistently a accoutrement for a hatchback, and while the A7 isn’t absolutely at A6 Allroad levels of utility, it’s far added advantageous than the A6 sedan. The actuality that it looks so beauteous is aloof icing on the cake.
