INGOLSTADT, Germany The new Audi A7 and S7 four-door hatchbacks were unveiled on Thursday in Germany as 2015 model vehicles, but U.S. launch details are still uncertain.

"We do not have pricing or timing for the A7 as of yet for the U.S., "wrote Mark Dahncke, an Audi of America spokesman, in response to a query from Edmunds.

Dahncke said the 2015 A7 is likely to be a carryover model here.

"Haven't finalized derivatives just yet," he wrote.

The revised A7 debuted in Germany with optional Matrix LED headlights, which light the road without causing glare for other drivers. But Dahncke noted those high-tech headlights have not been approved for use in the U.S. by federal safety regulators.

The A7 debuts in the home market with the choice of two gasoline and three diesel engines. The grille, bumpers and tailpipes have been redesigned.

The 2014 Audi A7 lineup in the U.S. includes the A7 with the 3.0T engine, the A7 with the 3.0 TDI or diesel engine, the S7 with the 4.0T engine and the RS 7 with the 4.0T engine.

The current Audi RS 7 is the most powerful RS model ever offered in the U.S.

Competitors to the A7 include the 2014 BMW 5 Series Grand Turismo, Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and Porsche Panamera.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers get a little preview of the redesigned Audi A7 and S7. We will update U.S. information as soon as it becomes available.
