Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

After a brief hiatus, the Audi RS7 is back and all new for 2020. 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.

Pros
Aggressive appearance, tantalizing performance attributes, hatchback's added versatility.

Cons
Too expensive for most enthusiasts, same infotainment foibles as regular A7.

Among enthusiasts and car spotters, it's got hero status - now there's an all-new Audi RS7. It's faster, considerably meaner, and a bit greener too.

Pros
Lower and way more aggressive design that shares only four parts with A7
Huge 800Nm and its relentless all the way to 300km/h
Sublime comfort and ride with a beautifully poised chassis
Body roll is kept in check by both air suspension and dynamic ride control, high tech and superb materials quality
Properly fuel efficient
Super-smooth gearbox
Awesome noise

Cons
Seems its design can be polarising to some
Surely it can accelerate faster than the claim?
Pricing is likely to be steep

The Audi RS7 Sportback is an incredibly fast four-door coupe that'll give some supercars a run for their money. It looks great inside too, but alternatives are more involving to drive.

Pros
Gorgeous interior
Phenomenally fast
Bigger boot than alternatives

Cons
Expensive optional extras
Not particularly involving to drive
RS6 Avant is cheaper and more practical
