The Audi A7's coupe-inspired roofline penalizes cargo space, but rear seat passengers should mostly be OK.

Quick Specs
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.
The 2016 Jaguar XF may be made of aluminum, but it's no lightweight anymore in rear-seat space or nimble handling.
The 2016 Mercedes CLS-Class looks great—inside and out. But a new E-Class and more efficient powertrains may outrun the potent "four-door coupe" sooner rather than later.
The 2016 Porsche Panamera looks like a sports car and drives like one, yet it delivers executive-level ride comfort and cabin appointments.
