The strap between twelve Audi a seven reports that there. -- -- seven has been a modified hit since enjoying the fort Gordon Cooper battle. But that is still a battle in the larger war army. Still a -- Bear in mind none of the cars in this class have the same rear passenger comfort as a -- -- and sibling. Partly thanks to the sloping roof line that tends to require the rear seat location -- -- former. Audi may have the most cohesive and impressive cabin tech in the biz right now. One example is how this car can -- on the task of navigation across the instrument panel screen on over to the centers stack screen creating what could be the most powerful navigation controls that are out there a BMW might argue that Audi has to do that since their main screen isn't really wide. But -- can -- nicely with their cutting -- use of Google Earth imagery. Downloaded on the fly I find it more useful in the 3-D building renderings most of the industry's pursuing. Google is also present in this car in the form of live search a great way to power navigation. And connectivity is via a dedicated -- in the dash and its own cellular radio not relying on Smart phone tethering.

And how these unique touch pad lets you finger paint input. And -- often find more satisfying than voice but to a degree and I still getting used out -- four corner buttons that -- to far flung corners on the screen. I guess after five years we'll just have to agree not to love each other. -- RK seven's three liter V6 is supercharged so -- -- by a belt driven pump. Rather than from an exhaust -- flowing over an impala which would be a -- Tomato to model except that the out -- response feels faster on throttled and most of the Turbo cars in its class. That's -- traditional hallmark of super chargers but they do introduce some parasitic drag on the engine. The numbers are 310 horsepower 325 foot pounds of torque zero to sixty is in five point four seconds for the sporting 200 pound car and the MPG isn't bad at 1828. At least that's the state anti aging always 778 speed automatic with paddles. And standard quite -- all wheel drive it's a big deal.

One the first -- does -- driving this supercharged engine is that it's -- super charger. There is really no perceptible delay in that on Russian power and it's a big boost when you get it. There's also this all wheel drive all four -- -- -- once you get the feeling that. The saudis want throws the best.
