Sportbacks don’t exactly fit the 'back to basic' mindset that has been championed in the face of the current economic climate. While the last 5 years have seen Audi make huge strides in the US, Audi has not yet had significant success with its higher-ticket models.

Our objectives were threefold: first, create buzz and attention for the new A7 – specifically through press and social media chatter. Second, create a viable challenger vehicle in the segment. Third, we wanted the A7 to act as a halo for Audi, and chip away at the purchasing hesitation around the brand overall.
