Automakers are adding more “smart” features to their cars as the technologies get cheaper, and as car buyers express more interest in them. Audi has taken that tendency to the next level, adding an impressive amount of high-tech features to its new 2012 A7 “sportback” sedan. The car carries a hefty $59,250 sticker price for the base model, but can run to $65,580 or more for a top-of-the-line model with all features included.
Regardless of its price, we were impressed; and if you like a vehicle decked out with the latest technology, the A7 may be the car you’re looking for. I had the pleasure recently of seeing these technologies in action, and here’s what I found. (All images courtesy of Ed Oswald, except "Night Vision" courtesy of Audi USA)
