Since the all-new 2019 Audi A7 has yet to reach showrooms, 2018 models are still being sold. In the US, you can buy a 2018 A7 Sportback for a tad under $70,000, which would put you just $3,000 shy of how much this used RS7 would set you back.
During his time with the car, Doug DeMuro went through everything from practicality, quirks, build quality, driving characteristics and looks, and concluded that this car is quite the bargain.
Starting off with the interior, we immediately hear about how many buttons the RS7 has, although pretty much all of them operated very useful features, such as the individual child-locks or the off-switch for the drivers’ seat memory function.
Quality is of course excellent, this having been one of Audi’s most expensive models throughout the years. Same goes for practicality – the RS7 (A7 in general) is a hatchback, a body style that obviously proves more useful than a 4-door sedan. The reviewer was also surprised to find that he fits reasonably well in the back, which says a lot considering the sloping roof line, as well as his 6’3″ (190 cm) frame.
As for how it drives, the RS7 feels dynamic, despite its size. It has good steering feel, it corners well, and of course, there’s the sonorous 4.0-liter TFSI V8 engine, with its 560 PS (552 HP) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.
