TCC’s Bottom Line
Beautiful to look at and a joy to drive even in base form, the 2016 Audi A7 takes the four-door form to truly tantalizing levels. A light facelift should only help sharpen the standout style and driving experience of the 2016 BMW 6-Series lineup—whether as a coupe, convertible, or four-door Gran Coupe.
