Remco Meulendijk (RM Design) is sharing his vision of the second generation Audi A7 Sportback due most likely in the second half 2017.

 

Audi provided a first taste of its upcoming design language back in November last year with the Prologue concept styled by March Lichte who is now in charge of the company's designs. He promises the 2017 A7 Sportback will have the most radical design compared to the next-gen A8 and A6 while the styling differences between the three cars will be more significant.

 

It will use the MLB Evo platform which should enable a weight loss of around 100 kg (220 lbs) and could get the next-gen A6's rumored semi-autonomous driving system enabling the vehicle to drive itself at speeds of up to 37 mph (60 km/h). A new type of air suspension is also in the works and will have a camera to scan the road up ahead and make the necessary adjustments based on the detected imperfections.

The all-new Audi A7 Sportback will probably be launched in the second half of 2017, following the introduction of the next-gen A8 and A6.
