What’s New for 2021?
After a brief hiatus, the Audi RS7 is back and all new for 2021. Now incorporating Sportback into its name, the second-gen RS7 receives more distinctive styling inside and out along with even greater technology and increased power.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
Power comes from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that pairs with a 48-volt hybrid system, eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. The RS7 makes 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, which Audi says will catapult the girthy four-door from zero to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds. Likewise, it can reach a top speed of almost 190 mph when equipped with the most dynamic package. The RS7 has a standard air suspension with adaptive settings for varied ride quality. Its standard 21-inch wheels can be traded for 22-inchers, but the larger wheels will likely diminish its on-road comfort. Other standout options include rear-wheel steering and ceramic brakes for improved agility and enhanced stopping power.
