2022 Audi A7 vs. Its Competition

2022 Audi A7
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

No rival offers quite the same blend of performance, style, and practicality.

BMW and Mercedes put design first with their shapely—but tiny-trunked—8-Series Gran Coupe and CLS models.

The Jaguar XF is more like a conventional sedan with a sleek roofline, but it’s definitely showing its age.

The Porsche Panamera costs an absolute fortune, though its dynamics are worth the price—if you can afford it.

And the Tesla Model S matches the A7’s lines but an electric car isn’t for everyone yet.
