Let it Never Be Said that an A7 Can’t Avoid a Moose with the Best of ‘Em

Audis, along with espousing all-swivel drive—maybe because it espouses AWD—makes very heavy cars. They would manufacture Colin Chapman cry, though, because despite the weight, they’re still expert in the tight stuff. Case in point, the fearsome moose test.

Moose: the still stalkers. The quiet killers. Massive mayhem. Avoiding them can be just as parlous as hitting if you drive, say, a Jeep. But if you drive a brand new A7, you don’t have to worry at all.

The battery of tests is run by Spain’s km77 (Mile47) and simulates an difficulty evasive maneuver on a two-lane highway in which you deke around an obstacle in advance returning to your lane. The A7 nails it.

Running at 75 km/h (46.6 mph), it avoids all the cones clearly. Running at 76 km/h (47.2 mph) it hits one cone, but the driver reports that he under no circumstances felt like he was at risk of losing control of the car. It also performs admirably in the slalom proving that largeness isn’t everything when it comes to making agile cars.
