A new rendering by automotive illustrator Remco Meulendijk previews how the second generation 2018 Audi A7 may look like. The rendering extensively borrows cues from the Audi Prologue concept that was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November last year.
The meaner looking headlights that are wedge shaped feature high-resolution Matrix LED technology. The new Singleframe grille looks even more dominating. It is now wider and positioned lower than on current generation A7. The air intakes are bigger and the hood is also redesigned for a more premium appeal. One thing that can be clearly noticed is that the A7 here sees a height reduction for a sportier appeal
The fenders, doors and rear quarter panels have muscular surfaces, similar to the Audi Prologue concept. The window panels are shortened and elongated. The coupe’s length itself seems to be much longer. As a result of the longer front doors and window panels, the roof is not extremely tapered from the B-pillar towards the rear-end of the Sportback. The rear quarter glass is now angular and slimmer and the low profile tyres seem to be spinning large, 20-inch 10-spoke wheels.
The second generation Audi A7 will be based on the Volkswagen Group’s second-generation MLB platform and see a launch in 2017. As in the rendering, the design and styling of the Mercedes CLS-Class-rival would be heavily inspired from the Prologue concept.
