If there's one thing we know, it's that 2011 is going to be a big year for Audi. With a ton of new, big-time products being unleashed -- namely the 2011 Audi A8, 2011 Audi A7 and 2012 Audi A6 -- it's an important test to see how their products sell.

But now as Audi expands its lineup, things are going to become a little more difficult when it comes to the decision process. Take, for example, the 2011 Audi A8 and all-new A7. In traditional Audi fashion, neither car's core is tremendously different as most of their in-cabin functions are similar but their appearances are not so familiar.

The A8 is a traditional, big-daddy sedan while the A7 has a four-door coupe/fastback look to it. The A7 oozes sex appeal while the A8 is a classy statement of elegance.

And if you want to sit and call the A7 "ugly," tell that to the Panamera, which is blowing up the sales charts now.

So the big question is, if you were in the market for a luxury sedan, why would you choose the A8 over the A7?
