Audi RS 7 Sportback Receives Design Changes
For the new model year, the Audi RS 7 Sportback will receive key design changes from the inside out. This performance-oriented version of the A7 sedan features a new Singleframe grille with a black honeycomb design and sharper corners for a more aggressive look. New headlights include standard LEDs or optional Matrix LEDs with a darkened trim. This optional package includes turn signals with dynamic display on the front lights. At the back of the car are redesigned air inlets and a new taillight design. New colors include Floret Silver, Glacier White, Mythos Black, and Sepang Blue with a pearl effect. The model is fitted with 20-inch forged alloy wheels or optional 21-inch aluminum wheels with three color options. Peeking on the inside reveals a new instrument cluster with a revised layout for the air inlets and Quattro emblem. The standard MMI navigation plus system with touchscreen capability uses an efficient graphics processor from Nvidia. Just like last year, the Audi RS 7 Sportback features a 4.0-liter TFSI engine good for 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with an eight-speed tiptronic transmission and all-wheel drive. Drivers can hit 62 mph from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds with this car. Fuel economy is 24.8 mpg for the U.S., Audi said. While Audi hasn't released full specs for the U.S. market, we expect our model to be similar to the European version. The RS 7 Sportback hits Germany during the third quarter of this year. Source: Audi
