Audi A7 – RS7
The Audi A7, rechristened as Audi RS7, is a high-end Sportback vehicle with exquisite looks and the capability to deliver a power-packed performance. This vehicle comes with an elegant design of a coupe but delivers a dynamic performance aided by the brute force of the v8 TFSI engine.
This Sportback comes in one variant, 4.0L V8 TFSI Quattro, and is available at a starting price of Rs 193.48 lakhs. In many ways, the Audi RS7 is similar to that of the A8 facelift version.
Eight exciting color options are available that make heads turn with awe whenever it zooms past on the roads at high speeds.
Audi A7 Exteriors
The trademark honeycomb black radiator grille with the flanking LED headlights and turn signal provides an unmistakable appearance to the Audi RS7. The iconic four rings placed at the center of the grille accentuate its overall appearance to the next level.
The body-colored bumpers with the stylishly designed air intakes look stunning. The chrome lining and the windows, and the multiple spoke alloy wheels give the vehicle a regal appearance. The black-colored PRVMs come fitted with integrated LED indicators. The body-colored door handles and rear bumper complete the vehicle's exquisitely designed exteriors. Finally, the chrome exhaust pipes placed at the bottom perform their functions with incredible perfection.
Audi A7 Interiors
If the exteriors were excellent, interiors should qualify as innovative in the true sense of the term. The dual-tone color scheme in the interiors matches the upholstery and enhances the overall beauty of the vehicle. The black leather-covered steering wheel is placed at the perfect angle for the driver to ensure the safest driving experience. In addition, the tilting and telescopic steering wheel prove one of the easiest to handle.
The black-colored upholstery with a red honeycomb pattern is of the best quality and provides the highest levels of luxury and comfort. Add to it the 4-zone automatic air conditioning, and you have one of the most comfortable cars in the Audi RS7. In addition, the RS embossing on the backrests and seatbelts makes a forceful statement.
The spacious interiors enable you and your family to go on long vacations in this car. In addition, this car can comfortably seat five passengers without feeling huddled up in any way.
Audi A7 Engine and Performance
The Audi RS7 draws its power from a robust V8 TFSI petrol engine that can deliver up to 600hp (441kW) of power while driving a top speed of 305kmph. This Sportback can accelerate from 0 to 100kmph within a short span of 3.6 seconds. This engine combines with a 48V mild-hybrid system to make it ideal for use in any situation.
This powerful engine mates with an 8-speed auto transmission system to deliver enhanced performance. The option of the RS Sport Suspension with Dynamic Ride Control allows the vehicle to deliver optimal performance under the most challenging driving conditions. In addition, the Quattro AWD system installed in the vehicles transmits power to all the wheels and enhances the overall stability feature.
Audi A7 Ride, Handling, and Safety
Driving this Audi RS7 is an absolute dream as you can race from 0 to 100kmph in around 3.6 seconds. Moreover, handling the vehicle is easy as it comes with various driver-assistance features like cruise control and other safety features like speed governor.
All passengers get the support of airbags, with the front-seat occupants getting frontal support. The curtain airbags for the rear-seat passengers protect them from severe injuries in the case of untoward accidents.
Audi takes care of children as the RS7 includes an ISOFIX child seat anchorage in the rear seat. In addition, other safety features like high-quality braking, ABS, EBD, and others ensure the highest safety levels for all passengers.
Tyre pressure monitoring display and the anti-theft two-away protection are excellent features available on the Audi RS7.
Audi A7 Competition Check
The ideal competitors to the Audi RS7 are BMW M5 and the Mercedes AMG GT 63S. But, unfortunately, there are no Indian-made cars to compete with the Audi RS7 in pricing and performance.
