Comparison: Boot space Audi A7 vs. competitors 2024

How much cargo can handle this Schrägheck?

Welcome to the magical world of boot spaces, where luggage reigns supreme and versatility is king. If you're in the market for a sleek, spacious car, the Audi A7 is worth your attention. In its current guises, both the pre-facelift and post-facelift A7 4K from 2018 to the present, there's something rather consistent yet impressive about its boot space: 535 litres of it, to be precise. No matter how many times the designers fiddled with the grille or changed the headlamp styles, that boot capacity remained rock steady. Whether you're planning a weekend getaway or a quick jaunt to the market, rest assured, the A7 has got the trunk space to fit all your unmentionables and then some.

Audi A7 - How has the boot space changed over the generations?

Diving into history, the Audi A7 hasn't fundamentally changed its relationship with boot space since it was launched back in 2010. From the original A7 4G (2010-2014) and its subtle facelift (2014-2017), to the newer 4K model and its recent finessed version from 2023, you're always greeted with the same 535 litres of practicality. One might wonder why Audi didn't take the opportunity to tweak this figure upwards or downwards a bit over the years, but there's an old adage: don't fix what isn't broken. Audi clearly thinks their 535-litre boot is a golden ratio in car design, and who could argue? With rear seats folded down, it blossoms into a cavernous 1,390 litres - not too shabby, eh?

The difference in Boot space between first generation (4G) from 2010 and last generation (A7 4K (1. Facelift)) from 2023 is 0 l.
The boot space of the current generation of A7 is 535 l.

The boot space compared to other Audi models

How does the A7's boot space stack up against its Audi siblings? Well, let's just say it's nestled comfortably in the middle of the pack. It's leagues ahead of the puny 280 litres found in the Audi A3 Sportback g-tron and even the 350 litres in the stylish Audi RS e-tron GT feels like a glove compartment in comparison. The A7 keeps pace with the Audi S7 Sportback and RS7 Sportback, matching their 535-litre offerings boot for boot. However, you might start feeling a bit of boot envy towards the Q7's gargantuan 867 litres, which are practically cargo bay proportions. But then again, you'll also enjoy a more dynamic driving experience in an A7 compared to that behemoth.

How does the boot space of the Audi A7 compare to it's nearest competitors?

When it comes to rivals outside the Audi family, the A7 stands its ground impressively. Let’s start with the Mercedes-Benz E-Klasse, which outdoes the A7 slightly with 540 litres – blink and you’ll miss the difference. Then there’s the Jaguar XF, that offers an identical amount of space, with no real boot advantage. The Nissan Patrol and Ford Edge hold up well too, offering 607 litres and 602 litres respectively, subtly outmuscling the A7. Interestingly, the A7’s much closer to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC with 505 litres, meaning it provides a nice balance of space without crossing into the territory of utility vehicles. Ultimately, it’s a boot space that ensures you’ll seldom be found wanting - unless you happen to be moving house, of course.
