The new S7 features a 4.0-litre TFSI with its 420PS and 550 Nm of torque which takes this elegant five-door coupe from 0 to 60mph in 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph. The S7 has the ingredients of an ultimate daily driver.
The reason for that, besdies the power and performance, and the remarkable 29.4mpg fuel consumption (combined), is the practicality of the car in spite of its fancy design. It offers a luggage compartment with a volume of 535 litres, which increases to 1,390 litres with the rear seat backs folded down.
The S7 is also a versatile car, what with the seven-speed S tronic transmission and the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, as well as adaptive air suspension sport and the Audi drive select dynamics system and 19-inch wheels (21-inch optional).
Equipments and features: Among the standard equipment highlights are xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, the driver information system with colour display and the versatile MMI radio plus audio and operating system. Both information hubs are easy to operate. The S7 Sportback can be equipped with all of the comfort, driver assistance and infotainment options available throughout the model series.
