In this newest guise, Audi has further honed the RS 7 Sportback. The large five-door coupé comes with new LED
headlights and even more enhanced infotainment features. With 412 kW and 700 Nm of torque, its 4.0 TFSI engine provides
a fuel consumption rating of 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres.
“The Audi RS 7 Sportback confirms the reputation of the RS models as the superior, top athletes of our brand,”
says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development of AUDI AG.
“The combination of a powerful four-litre V8 engine with cylinder-on-demand technology, quattro drive and
intelligent lightweight design makes the RS 7 Sportback an outstanding piece of sports equipment for any fan of dynamic
and yet efficient driving.”
Even at first glance, the Audi RS 7 Sportback reveals its dynamic character – the long bonnet, the sporty and flowing
C-pillars and the sharply sloping rear end form an aesthetic overall impression. New design details add striking touches.
They include the Singleframe grille with the black honeycomb typical of RS models, with the corners now even sharper and
more distinctive. Three optional packages – matt aluminium, gloss black and carbon – make the look of the RS 7 Sportback
even more distinctive. The central front air inlet bears the quattro lettering. Slight modifications have also been made
to the bumper, with its distinctive air inlets.
The headlights, also adapted to the new Singleframe, come with LED technology as a standard feature. On request, Audi
provides the headlights with the innovative Matrix LED technology, available exclusively on the RS 7 Sportback with
additionally darkened trims. This offer also includes turn signals with dynamic display at the front. At the rear they
are generally standard. The tail lights also have a new interior design. New to the paint finishes are the colours Floret
Silver, metallic; Glacier White, metallic; Mythos Black, metallic and Sepang Blue, pearl effect.

In the black interior, dominated by the RS sport seats, the designers have discreetly revised the instrument cluster:
the air outlet controls of the vent nozzles, the shift paddles behind the steering wheel and the quattro emblem on the
instrument panel. The standard MMI navigation plus with MMI touch now uses the modular infotainment platform of the
latest generation; its highlight is an efficient graphics processor from Audi’s partner, Nvidia.
The 4.0 TFSI in the revised Audi RS 7 Sportback provides as before 412 kW, with a constant 700 Nm of torque at engine
speeds between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm. The engine catapults this five-door from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.
An eight-speed tiptronic tuned for sporty performance, with a tall eight gear, directs the power of the
eight-cylinder engine to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive. On request, Audi will combine quattro all-wheel drive
with the optional sport differential on the rear axle.
The RS adaptive air suspension, together with adaptive damping, standard on the RS 7 Sportback, lowers the body by 20
millimeters (0.8 in); its control is incorporated in the Audi drive select driving dynamics system. Audi offers the
tauter RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an alternative. A further option is dynamic steering,
with its continuously variable steering ratio.
The revised Audi RS 7 Sportback is fitted with 20-inch forged lightweight alloy wheels as a standard feature; 21-inch
cast aluminium wheels in three colour versions are optionally available. The four internally ventilated brake discs have
a weight-saving wave design; alternatively Audi installs carbon fibre-ceramic discs. Electronic Stabilisation Control
(ESC) has a Sport mode that can be deactivated altogether if need be.
