The Audi S7 is a Car that Comes with Style, Sophistication, and Speed
The Audi S7 is one of the most beautiful cars on the road. Its styling is complemented by the gracefully arched roofline, muscular flared fenders, and fastback rear. The commanding-looking headlights with LED accents and the distinctive chrome treated single-frame grille, along with LED taillights, trapezoidal exhaust outlets, and honeycomb mesh inserted in the rear bumper, complete the picture of a car that many people would love to have parked in their driveway.
What You Find Under the Hood
A 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 generates 450 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque in the Audi S7. In base tune, it makes 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed S Tronic dual-clutch transmission handles the gear-shifting duties. When at speed, the S7 clicks off shifts with speed and confidence but does manage smooth takeoffs when driven more leisurely. The S7 has superlative grip and handles its weight very well through available adaptive dampers. The S7 edges comfortably into corners without much rotating. Whether negotiating a twisting stretch of road or cruising down the highway, the Audi S7 is a comfortable place to be, both in front and in back. Overall, the handling is about what you'd expect of a large, comfortable, luxurious sedan: very good, but not razor sharp.
The Interior Comfort and Luxury
Inside, the S7 is elegant and opulent, with soft hides, quality plastic and metals, and a top-notch fit and finish that is among the best in the industry. The interior of the Audi S7 comes equipped with the latest technological features. Even though rear seat passengers have to cope with the sloping roof line, they find that the headliner is designed to make the most of the available space. The MMI Infotainment system is quick to react to inputs, and on the centre screen it can display Google Earth maps and streets and relay the information to a secondary display in the instrument panel along with vehicle information and other required data. There is also 4G LTE connectivity and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality.
Additional available technology includes driver assist systems such as adaptive cruise control, enhanced night vision, blind-spot monitors, pre-sense braking, as well as a lane-keeping assist, and, there is also an available head-up display. New standard features for 2017 are an Audi Smartphone interface, a Bose surround sound and audio system, and 5-spoke nineteen-inch wheels.
