Learn about the Audi RS7

Summary

Blending the functionality of a hatchback with the sporty handling of a sedan, the Audi RS7 goes above and beyond to deliver a luxurious ride. Since the vehicle's 2014 debut, the Audi RS7 has continuously been celebrated as a powerful and memorable five-door supercar. While newer models come standard with a wide array of technological features, ranging from safety innovations to sleek infotainment updates, some drivers may find that older models appear underwhelming compared to today's standards. Regardless of the year or trim, if you're looking for an energetic ride with plenty of power, the Audi RS7 has you covered.

Safety

Widely regarded as a luxury vehicle, the Audi RS7 lives up to these expectations when considering its range of available safety features. Older models, such as the 2015 Audi RS7, come standard with a number of impressive functions, including:

  • Anti-lock braking system – to prevent wheels from locking up while braking
  • Audi's Follow-Me-Home headlights – used to light up the interior of your garage or driveway for up to two minutes after the car has been locked
  • Engine immobilizer – an anti-theft system that prevents the vehicle from being started without its authorized key

Interior

Passengers of the Audi RS7 will be impressed with the vehicle's premium interior. Newer models come standard with heated, electrically adjustable sport seats that are comfortable and supportive. An assortment of adjustable features makes it easy for drivers to find a position that will feel tailor-made just for them.

Some drivers have found that minor details, such as the rubberized accents and plastic finishes, have a low-quality feel and look. Despite this, the respectable interior and seemingly endless array of adjustable features are sure to satisfy most drivers and passengers.

Technology

After taking a brief hiatus after 2018, the Audi RS7 2020 returned in a completely upgraded fashion. These newer models are not only more powerful, but they also offer drivers a wide selection of technological features, both standard and optional.

In addition to boasting the manufacturer's newest MMI Touch Response infotainment system, new Audi RS7 models combine a colourful head-up display with Audi's Virtual Cockpit gauge cluster to offer an even more customizable driving experience. This means that drivers can decide what information they want to see on their dash, tailoring their driving experience to match their exact preferences.

Space

Even with its Sportback name, the Audi RS7 doesn't offer as much interior space as you might expect from a traditional hatchback. Front passengers are provided ample amounts of leg and headroom, but taller occupants might find the vehicle a bit tight. It's worth noting that Audi has continued to improve upon this with each new model, offering increasingly spacious interiors. The vehicle's already-large 535 L trunk can be further increased by simply dropping the rear seats to offer plenty of cargo space.

Comfort

While older Audi RS7 models have been described as slightly underwhelming, the newer versions continue to impress drivers and passengers alike. Available in a range of trims, including the RS7 Performance, drivers can find an engine and performance that best suits them.

Between the cockpit-like interior, sporty handling and powerful engine, it's hard to deny that the Audi RS7 is designed specifically with drivers in mind. Thanks to all of this, the Audi RS7 delivers an experience that few drivers are soon to forget after a turn behind the wheel.
