Audi introduced the new A7 Sportback at an event in Ingolstadt, Germany, on Thursday. The coupe-like sedan sports all of the company’s new design cues and sharp edges from the company’s Prologue Concept from a few years ago. All versions will arrive with a mild hybrid system including the V6 3.0-liter, which will initially be the only choice for power. “Additional six- and four-cylinder engines, both gasoline and diesel, will follow shortly after the start of production.”

In the front, we can see narrower headlights with sharper lines on the Singleframe grille. The lights feature 12 lighted segments with spaces in between that Audi says evoke the binary digits 0 and 1. Like most of these coupe-ish sedans the A7 looks long with short overhangs. The rear is tapered and features an integrated spoiler that extends automatically at about 75 mph. The taillights have 13 different segments that light up and move when the car is locked and unlocked.

The A7 Sportback will be offered in 15 colors, eight of which are new. Like the rest of the stable, an S line package is available with changes to the grille, front air inlets and elsewhere.

Inside, Audi says, the A7 gets a minimalized design, optional ambient lighting and a 10.1-inch upper display with Audi’s new MMI touch infotainment system that replaces the rotary pushbutton and other controls. An 8.6-inch lower display includes controls for climate, comfort and text input. Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit in the gauges is also optional.
