Lively, connected steering
Brilliantly balanced

Cons
Brash looks aren’t for everyone

Back seat lacks rivals’ space

One of the most powerful sedans on the road
Far cheaper than comparably powered performance sedans

Superior support from optional sport seats

Less luxurious cabin than those of competitors

The Audi S7 and RS 7 are like habanero and ghost peppers—among the hottest cars you’ll find anywhere.

Pros
Gorgeous and practical shape
Thundering performance
Elegant interior
Terrific ride and handling balance
Surprising utility

Cons
Crests $100,000 easily

The 2018 Audi S7 is a midsize high-performance four-door with a hatchback body style Audi dubs a "Sportback." Unlike the A7, which comes in a five-passenger configuration, the S7 can only be had with a pair of individual rear sport seats.

PROS
Blistering acceleration from V8 engine
Hatchback design's expanded cargo space

CONS
Doesn't offer some of Audi's latest technology features
Less headroom than a typical sedan

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Effortless acceleration
Nimble for its size
Generous cargo space

Cons
Only seats four
Not all active driver assistance features come standard
