"The new A7 enjoys a stiffer unibody structure than last year's model, while a new, optional rear-wheel steering can help bend the A7 into curves. Our test car didn't include that feature, though.
"It didn't seem to need it, either. Hammering the A7 through the canyons surrounding Napa Valley, the suspension's ability to absorb bumps without even slightly affecting the car's line was impressive. The A7's brakes provided the ability to precisely shed the right amount of speed charging into tight corners and the active dampers managed any dive incurred under hard braking.
"On the bumpier Butts Canyon Road, the Comfort setting seemed to work best, soaking up impacts without allowing any excess body motion, while the Dynamic mode was ideal for the faster, smoother Chiles Popes Valley Road."
