funny you mentioned the Audi A7 with its "sleeker looking".
might be so but the downside is, that you are scraping your butt on the tarmac, dogs are looking you straight in the eye (or doing other unspeakable things) and the main problem - the witdth of the driver's door. When it comes to "tight lies" you would not be able to leave this car because of the necessary opening angle of your door to put yourself through it :-)))
Here in Europe dimensions of roads, parking lots and garages are considerably smaller than in US/CAN.
so wehenever I am pregnant with buying a new car - first thing to do is a testdrive and find out if I can leave the car when parked my garage at all or at least without too much gymnastics.
And there is NO SUCH CAR in the high-end league except the GT.
Not AUDI and of course not MERC (are there others at all ???)
