Some cars holds special place among the auto enthusiasts and Audi RS7 is one of them. There has been surge of demand in the performance vehicles segment more than the conventional flagship models in recent years because these cars have the ability to provide best of both the worlds. Audi RS7 was launched in the country to cater to customers who are fond of rubbing the tyres in the luxury and comfort of a sedan. The car first arrived onto Indian shores in the year 2013 and in all these years the carmaker has given important timely updates to the vehicle. The latest version came in the form of Sportsback Performance in the year 2016. This time around, the coupe gets subtle changes on the inside as well as outside while it packs more power inside. The vehicle is being brought in the country via CBU route.
On the outside, the 5-door performance coupe gets more sharper and attractive profile as compared to its outgoing version. One of biggest updates seen in this version is the new signature radiator grille. It now gets six-point single-frame grille with honeycomb mesh pattern which goes up to the bumper. Audi RS7 also gets Matrix LED headlights and T-shaped LED lights. The air intakes on the bumper are larger than before. Coming to its side profile, Audi RS7 largely remains the same as its original version retains the coupe roofline. The vehicle comes with 20-inch alloy wheels while 21-inch cast aluminium wheels are offered as optional. At the back it gets new tail light inlays along with LED turn indicators. Audi RS7 is offered in vibrant shades such as Panther Black Crystal Effect, Suzuka Grey Metallic, Nardo Grey, Misano Red Pearl Effect, Ibis White, Daytona Grey Pearl effect, Daytona Grey, Estoril Blue Crystal and Phantom Black pearl effect. The Sportsback Performance variant gets an exclusive colour option named Ascari Blue.
Coming to its interiors, inside the cabin the new Audi RS7 gets subtle changes but it does lend the feel of freshness. The changes inside includes revised instrument cluster, new gearshift paddles, updated air conditioning controls, a Quattro emblem on instrument panel. The noteworthy improvement is seen in the infotainment unit that gets new head-up display unit, updated MMI navigation system, touchpad controller. The car gets Bang and Olufsen audio system to cater music enthusiasts. The Sportsback Performance gets sport seats with Valcona leather, some additional aluminium accents on the dashboard with carbon inlays and piano black highlights. The design of the instrument cluster has also been revamped, revised paddle shifter and other small updates here and there.
In terms of performance, Audi RS7 is powered by the 4.0L V8 petrol mill only that is capable of generating the power output of 560PS and maximum torque of 700Nm. The engine comes with 8-speed automatic transmission. Audi RS7 is one of the most powerful models in the Audi’s portfolio, the car can go from 0-100kkmph in just 3.9 seconds. Audi also launched RS7 performance that uses the same 4.0L TFSI V8 mill but bumps the power of 605PS and generates maximum torque of 750Nm due to its Overboost torque-on-demand function. This is a bit quicker than the standard variant taking just 3.7 seconds for a 0-100kmph sprint.
In terms of safety, Audi’s premium Sportsback comes packed with aspects such as 8 airbags, ABS, Hill Assist, Electronic Brakeforce distribution, Brake Assist, Traction Control, engine immobilizer, automatic headlamps, electronic stability program, rain sensing wipers, power door lock and cornering lights.
Audi RS7 is available in two variants viz. RS7 Sportback and RS7 Sportback Performance. In terms of pricing, Audi RS7 Sportback is tagged at Rs. 1.52 crore and RS7 Sportback Performance is being offered at the price tag of Rs. 1.57 crore, ex-showroom. The Sportsback lock horns against Porsche Panamera and BMW M in the segment.


Get inside the RS7 and you would notice the perfect combination of luxury and sportiness. Being a coupe, one minor compromise you have to do as compared to a conventional sedan is the lesser amount of headroom at the rear which is because of tapered roofline. But we Indians shouldn’t have problem as we are not as tall as Americans or Europeans.
However, there is no compromise in quality and fit and finish. There is plenty of alcantara and leather spread across the cabin along with elegant dose of carbon fibre. The rear seat though offer headroom, can be folded to make gigantic space in the boot. The 3-spoke flat bottomed steering wheel holds plenty of controls while the instrument cluster features twin dials. The instrument cluster gives info on outside temperature, gear display, digital speedometer, oil temperature display, door and luggage compartment lid check as well as lap timer.
In the world of touchscreen infotainment, the RS7 still uses a normal 7-inch TFT display for both gathering vehicle info and for music. This might be because the carmaker doesn’t want you to keep your hands off the road and want you to enjoy the blistering driving experience. However, you do get 600 watt BOSE surround sound system including 14-speakers and 12-channel amplifier. For music fanatics, there is optional Bang & Olufsen advanced sound system that comprises of 15 loudspeakers including a subwoofer with a total output of 1200 watt.
The RS7 also comes with state of the art techs such as satellite navigation, head-up display, 20GB of music storage, USB and card reader. It also comes with Attention Assist which monitors driving behaviour by using a number of sensors. It analyses steering response and pedal actuation and if it senses that the driver attention is lapsing, then it recommends breaking. This system is automatically active between 65kmph and 200kmph. The four-zone climate cools the cabin super quick and features indirect ventilation and sunlight dependant control.
As it’s a coupe it doesn’t mean it compromises on practicality. There are plenty of storage compartments including glove compartment, storage package including 12V point, 2 cup holders and bag hooks. Additional touches of the ‘RS’ badge include leather and alcantra material and sporty seats. Other goodies include engine start/stop system, parking system plus, cruise control, ambient lighting and slide/tilt glass sunroof among others.


The Audi RS7 exudes unemotional aggression which is quite fascinating. The design resembles much to that of A7 sedan until you come closer for detailed scrutiny or hear the roar from the exhausts. The car gets large front grille which is bigger than A7. The headlight cluster is sleek pointing towards the grille with Quattro badge on it. While it continues to sport the same smoked LED headlamps, this time the car can also be configured in Matrix LED headlights which give it a stone-cold superior face naturally which demands attention. These are identical to the one working in Audi A8. These adaptive lights allow control to individual diodes which can work independently. The interesting thing about these lights is that it prevents the oncoming car from being dazzled by automatically shutting the diodes while still lighting up the surrounding area.
Then there is aggressive looking front bumper which houses large air dam behind. The car rides on 21 inch optional alloys while the hunkered down stance is what makes it stand out of the crowd. The electric blue colour of the Sportsback Performance adds more to the drama. One can also spot the RS7 from behind when its indicators swipe in the direction of the turn, adding party trick to the black LED tail lamps. While Indian customers hasn’t show much love to the 4-door coupes yet, the positive side is that Audi RS7 enjoys being an exclusive vehicle among the league and that’s what the target customers want in their cars.

Mileage Running Cost

The updated version of Audi RS7 features cylinder management system that shuts down 4 of the 8 cylinders when you aren’t driving harsh. Moreover, in conjunction with the gear ratios, it manages to be an astoundingly frugal vehicle.
The ARAI certified mileage of RS7 stands at 13.9kmpl while in real world, you can get around 7kmpl. And if you are on a ludicrous spree, then expect not more than 4kmpl. This figure is still better than similarly powered BMW M5’s 2-3kmpl.

Comfort Suspension

Weight is considered an enemy of a sprightly performance vehicle. And despite all the dexterous engineering to make sure this car doesn’t lose track, the 2-tonne weight transfer cannot be overlooked. The car will gobble up road undulations and spit most of the cars out of the corners, but you will tend to lose speed. However, the Quattro system can get back you on the track in mill-seconds.
The steering is light and precise and its facet can be seen in Dynamic and Comfort mode. You can further make it light by customizing the steering settings. The standard air suspension set-up is better for the Indian road conditions instead of optional sports suspension.
Going fast over undulated roads will give a sense of little firmness but that is well compensated by the suspension setup which does a fine job of settling the occupants in comfort. The car also features a deployable spoiler offered for additional downforce over the speed of 130kmph. It automatically activates above the speed of 80kmph and can also be manually activated with a touch of a button located on the centre console. The car is made for straight line stability and with 97 octane fuel, it can prove to be a superb mile muncher so much so that you will not feel uneasy even at triple digit speeds.

Engine Performance

The Audi RS7 derives its energy to run from the outrageous 4L twin-turbo V8 engine that bulges out 560PS and 700Nm of max torque. The engine is mated to one of the most refined transmission in the business i.e. 8-speed ZF transmission that turns the car into full character by offering different driving modes. The torque is efficiently handled by Audi’ Quattro AWD system which sends power to the wheels so persistently that you would just want to accelerate without slowing down. This makes the 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.9 seconds of time with the top speed of 250kmph.
On the other hand, the Sportsback Performance variant though packs the same engine but produces extra power and torque. The engine is tuned to pump out 600PS and while the torque is the same 700Nm, you can further push it to 750Nm by activating overboost function. This feature feeds extra burst of torque whenever the situation demands. All this makes the car capable of dashing from 0-100kmph in just 3.7 seconds of time, reaching the top speed of 305kmph if driven on open stretch.
The RS7 is not only fairly quick but also add a tad drama to its performance. While turbocharged engines lack that thunderous roar of naturally aspirated V8, yet the car is able to bring out that growl. And the off-throttle pops crackles and pops created by little drops of fuel is certainly entertaining. Overall, the RS7 is rocket performer and fairly do justice to the ‘supercar’ tag imposed on to it.

Braking Safety

The brakes in the standard Sportsback variant are progressive and instill confidence with good bite force. However, it can only serve better for a car with 250kmph speed limit, for the Sportsback Performance variant which can breach the 300kmph mark, it is better to choose the optional Ceramics brakes for stronger performance.
Further, the braking system is enhanced through features such as ABS with EBD and Brake Assist. Being a performance car, there is no dearth of safety aspects. The car comes with 8 airbags, electronic stability program, traction control, anti-slip regulation, electronic differential lock, cornering lights, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, hold assist, park assist and safety steering column.
