However, the electric seat positioning allows for incredible adjustability, I was comfortable the entire 3-hour drive. The A7 is a perfect car for those who are looking for a daily car but aren’t willing to sacrifice speed, the quickness of the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine makes for a conservative adrenaline rush.
