Automobile Magazine just announced that they've picked the Audi A7 as its 2012 Automobile of the Year, saying:

"...the A7 snuck up on us. It looks good in pictures, but it is much more striking in person. The front visage is both sleek and imposing; in the side view, the car appears elongated, as if tapered by the wind. Move around to the rear, and the A7 is simply captivating. Who ever thought a hatchback could be so sexy? The seduction was underway."

DISCUSSION

For some reason, people seem to like the droopy ass design trend that's out there on German cars. The two biggest offenders in my book are the SLS and this, the A7. I'm not a big fan of either one. It's just a sedan with a droopy ass to my eyes, but apparently I'm not as well learned as the automotive press.
