Simply put, the 2018 Audi RS7 is the S7 on steroids. The German manufacturer has come the conclusion that the capabilities of the S7 were not enough, so it decided to enhance it even further. As a result, we will get the RS7, which comes as a formidable mix of technology, performance, function, and style. The newest 2018 edition will come with a slew of enhancements and upgrades, as well as an even more powerful engine. With these, the RS7 will be more than a match for the BMW M5 and the Porsche Panamera.
2018 Audi RS7 – Design that Hosts Comfort and Convenience
The 2018 Audi RS7 is, undoubtedly, one of the most attractive and luxurious-looking cars in its segment. Ever since its first release back in 2012, its striking design has been one of its major selling points. Even though the standard S7 is already a sporty-looking vehicle, the RS7 will take a big step further. Aside from having more striking lines and design choices, the RS7 will also have some unique features as well. Among these are noticeably redesigned front and rear bumpers, which are much sleeker than the standard ones. Additionally, we will also see a new diffuser, a carbon fiber splitter, and a more aggressive electric rear spoiler. Overall, the 2018 Audi RS7 will sport a highly elegant design and a flowing shape, which will be complemented with a plethora of black and blacked out elements and 21-inch alloy wheels.
Interior Features and Styling
In general, the interior of the 2018 Audi RS7 will be quite similar to the interior of the S7. Those who have experience with Audi vehicles, will not be surprised. As usual, the RS7’s interior will impress, thanks to an excellent combination of luxury, comfort, and advanced technology. Those interested in the materials will be pleased when they find fully adjustable seats, covered in high-quality leather and diamond stitching. When it comes to the number of seats, the upcoming model will have 4 of them, as opposed to the S7, which has 5.
The decision to remove one seat is quite understandable, given that the 2018 Audi RS7 is more oriented towards providing a sporty feel. However, it will still offer a decent amount of legroom and headroom for both the driver and the passengers, as well as cargo space. To further increase its athletic nature, Audi has decided to incorporate blue inlays to the carbon-fiber trim, as well. Tech-wise, we will see an advanced heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, a BOSE audio system, a 4-zone climate control, the MMI infotainment center, and more.
Engine Specs and Performance
Given that the 2018 Audi RS7 is a performance version of the S7, it is quite natural that it sports a more powerful engine variant. This is going to be a 560 hp 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with 516 lb-ft of torque. With it, the RS7 will go from 0 to 62 mph in amazing 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of almost 190 mph. The engine will come mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and it will have an EPA rating of 15/25 mpg in city/highway condition.
Release Date and How Much will Cost
Those waiting for the upcoming 2018 Audi RS7 will not have to wait too long, fortunately. This sporty sedan from Audi is expected to arrive in the second half of 2017. It will also come with a hefty price tag as well, which will reach almost $110.000.
