A Look At The New RS7: The luxury hatchback sedan market is one that is fiercely competitive with the likes of the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-AMG GT43. The Audi RS7 is another strong competitor and the upcoming ’23 model could be one that strikes gold and leaves the others in its trail. The RS7 could be Audi’s finest car to date and it is one that will appeal to every motorist.
The new RS7 Sportback starts from £104,405 – Audi gap insurance is highly recommended – and boasts some impressive statistics. With a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, the Audi RS7 Sportback is capable of 0 to 62 in a blistering 3.6 seconds with agile handling that allows for a thrilling driving performance that any motorist will get a kick out of. It also boasts a top speed of 190mph, so speed demons will certainly enjoy being behind the wheel of this fantastic car.
In terms of fuel economy, the RS7 Sportback is rated 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the motorway. Real-life tests found that it returned 23 mpg in the real world. While this may not be a huge amount, you will find that it is ordinary for its class as all vehicles in this category will be fuel-hungry to power the engine.
As you would expect with an Audi, the interior is luxurious, spacious and comfortable. It shares a lot with the regular R7, but you will find that the Sportback has a few nice extra touches that can make the experience smoother and more enjoyable for the driver and passengers. You will find upscale materials used throughout and there is a cargo area with 19 cubic feet of space, which can be extended to 49 if you have the rear seats folded.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Audi is always pioneering when it comes to infotainment and connectivity and this is no different with the RS7 Sportback. You will find two intuitive touch screens in the cabin that allow you to control all aspects of the car along with voice-recognition software so that you do not have to take your eyes off the road. You will also benefit from Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless charging for your devices. The vehicle also has a range of active safety tech, including automatic emergency braking and standard forward-collision warning along with adaptive cruise control.
The new RS7 Sportback is an incredible car and one that will certainly shake up the luxury sedan market. This is a competitive marketplace with many superb cars to choose from, but the Audi RS7 is one to keep an eye on and will be appealing to any motorist with a need for speed along with a stylish, luxury interior to enjoy.
