Audi A7 Sportback Lightweight construction

The Audi A7 Sportback benefits from lightweight construction technology.
The A7 Sportback's body parts, where possible, are made from lightweight aluminium including elements of the doors, the bonnet, the tailgate and the wings.
But this lightweight construction does not come at the expense of safety. Throughout the A7 Sportback's body, specific zones requiring reinforcement have panels of varying thickness ensuring strength in the event of a collision.
The lightweight construction is also applied to the suspension with diecast aluminium being used at the front suspension-strut mounts. The control arms, pivot bearings and wheel carriers also have aluminium components to reduce weight.
All this ensures that the Audi A7 Sportback has maximum performance with no detrimental effect to safety.
