TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Audi A7 is a tech powerhouse and design standout, showing that hatchback practicality can indeed be sexy. The 2012 Infiniti M sedans are true super-sedans, delivering sharp handling, scorching performance, and impressive comfort, with a beautiful but not overwrought design inside and out.
