Now, if only the A7 had been able to steer itself, I could have spent my week in the back seat playing Portal 2 and live-streaming Netflix to my laptop. Finally, my tester had the $5,900 Bang & Olufsen stereo system. That alone is nearly 10% of the A7's base price of $60,125. Yes, the sound coming from the 15 speakers was so clear and crisp you could hear the artist blink. But that's still a sizable expense; imagine a $1,600 stereo option on a Ford Fiesta.
Plenty of ink has been used extolling the virtues of Audi's interiors. This one is no different, so I'll spare you the adulation. I will point out that the company seems unnecessarily beholden to marketing this car as a four-door coupe. So much so that it has eliminated the middle seat in the rear and in its place installed a simple plastic bin.
