Audi’s new A7 Sportback in China will be introduced in September 2011, according to Dominique Boesch, general manager of the Audi Sales Division at FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co Ltd. In an interview with the Beijing Times, Boesch said that the new A7 Sportback will make its debut along with the new Audi A8.

It was in mid-2010 that the Audi A7 Sportback was introduced in Europe but its first public appearance had actually taken place in September at the Paris Auto Show. There are four V6 engine options available for this new model: two gasoline and two diesel.

The gasoline units include the 2.8 FSI (which delivers 204 hp and 280 Nm of torque), coupled with S tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive (the new generation which debuted on the RS 5), and the 3.0 TFSI (300 hp 440 Nm of torque), which is mated with the S tronic and the quattro powertrain as well.

These are the same engines that are expected to be available in China but in order to meet local regulations, the power output could be slightly different.

For the European market, the car offers the following features as standard: automatic air conditioning system, keyless ignition via the engine start-stop button, four-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel, xenon headlights, LED tail lights, MMI radio with a 6.5-inch monitor, electromechanical parking brake, power rear hatch, 18-inch alloy wheels and an acoustic windshield.
