In order to fill a car market niche, Audi has created the A7 Sportback. Although it might appear to be a new design, this actually harks back to the days of the Citroen CX.

The Audi version, the A7 Sportback is actually a decent looking car, as some companies have made right messes of their sportback models. We’re looking at youHonda with your Crosstour. The Audi is only a prototype at this point, but it’s slated to be ready by 2012 and just in case you were wondering how it was thought up, Audi has a video for you to see.

The designers created something that stepped outside of the normal sportback range. Obviously, its shape will put it in the firing line of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and the Volkswagen CC. Yet, we don’t think Audi should have too much of a problem garnering sales, as its look is quite unique, including that massive rear end.

We’ve said enough about this car’s visual appearance, now enjoy the video.

Interesting pricing. Hopefully it works for Audi with BMW pricing their 7 series sport back/wagon/ clusterfrack $20,000 cheaper than the 7 series. I guess if they’re looking to move lower volumes.
