Audi A7 hybrid boot space & seating

SUVs and estate cars may be inherently more practical than sleek four-door coupes, but the A7 TFSI e isn’t as far behind as you might think

There’s no denying that the A7 plug-in hybrid is a big car – it’s 243mm longer than an A4 saloon, for example. But that’s not to say it’s the most practical option, either; the sloping roofline does limit space compared to some saloon, estate and large SUV rivals.

The hatchback-style boot opening does at least make it easier to load awkwardly shaped objects into the back than would be the case with a four-door saloon. All things considered, the A7 TFSI e will suit those wanting a large and spacious car, but perhaps don’t regularly transport more than one tall adult passenger on long journeys.

Audi A7 hybrid interior space, storage & comfort

Further to the above, the front seats are spacious, comfortable and have plenty of room. In the rear, six-footers may struggle with the sloping roofline (although it’s hardly cramped), but legroom is improved somewhat over the previous generation A7.

There are a good number of storage spaces in the A7’s cabin, too. The glovebox is complemented by cupholders, door bins and other cubby holes. One small gripe is actually down to the 8.6-inch touchscreen display occupying the space where many cars have storage for phones and/or keys.

Boot space

A7 TFSI e models boast 380 litres of luggage capacity with the rear seats up and 1,235 litres with them down. Purely petrol or diesel A7s do better than this, promising 535 litres of space with seats up and 1,390 litres with them down.
