Comments

With the exception of NOₓ in the high-load highway test, all pollutant emissions are well or adequately controlled in the lab tests and in the on-road drive. However, in the highway test, values of NOₓ were sufficiently high that all points were lost in this test.

Comments

Energy efficiency is marginal or weak in the lab tests and in the on-road drive. The lowest score was in the high-load highway test.

Our verdict

The Audi A7 50 TDI has a three-litre diesel engine that produces 210 kW and a huge 620 Nm of torque at revs as low as 2,250 rpm. It is also a big car, weighing in at over 2,200 kg. It is tested here in a form compliant with the very latest European emissions standards (Euro 6d-Temp), with selective catalyst reduction, lean NOₓ trap and a diesel particulate filter. In the Clean Air tests, the car generally performs well. Pollutant emissions are well controlled except for oxides of nitrogen which are high in the high-load test. Still, a Clean Air Index of 7.3 is a creditable result. However, the A7 50 TDI gets an index of only 2.5 for Energy Efficiency. Overall, impressive mitigation of pollutant emissions is compromised by modest energy efficiency.
