2012 Audi A7 Priced: $59,250 For 310-HP Supercharged V-6

Follow Nelson

The U.S. is getting the 2012 Audi A7 soon--the first deliveries are due later this month--and now we know the price: $59,025 plus $875 in destination charges for a base of $60,125. All U.S. models get their power from the 3.0-liter TFSI supercharged V-6 rated at 310 horsepower.

That's not a bad combo of power and price, though it ranks near the bottom of the competitive comparison on power (and likely performance) when taken against the Mercedes-Benz CLS, BMW 5-Series GT. Its looks, however, are undeniably near the top of the list.

Extensive use of aluminum makes the A7 lighter than a typical car its size; Audi claims 20 percent weight savings. Inside, the A7 is tipped to get Audi's first heads-up display (HUD), wireless hotspot ability, and Google services, plus a standard Bose and available Bang & Olfusen stereo. All the typical high-end Audi safety electronics will be present as well. All of the computer gear makes the A7 one of the more geek-friendly cars on the road, and perhaps the most of the four-door coupe class.

The A7 also snags standard quattro all-wheel drive in the U.S., and estimated EPA ratings of 18/28 mpg for a combined 22 mpg thanks in part to its eight-speed Tiptronic transmission.

The full and official unveiling of the U.S.-spec 2012 Audi A7 will come in just a couple of weeks at the 2011 New York Auto Show, and we'll have the latest as it breaks.
