High power, a discreet understatement, ample features and a high degree of everyday practicality – all of these strengths come together in the Audi S models. Each model applies its power to the road with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.5 – 9.3 (24.8 – 25.3 US mpg) Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 220 – 215 (354.1 – 346.0 g/mi) (Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)
The same engine used in the S6 and S6 Avant – the 4.0 TFSI with 331 kW (450 hp) and 550 Nm (405.7 lb-ft) of torque – is also used in the Audi S7 Sportback. This unit accelerates the five-door Coupé from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.6 seconds. Under partial load, the V8 bi-turbo uses cylinder on demand (COD) technology including Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and active engine bearings. In the NEDC, it consumes 9.3 liters of fuel per 100 km (25.3 US mpg), corresponding to 215 grams of CO2 per kilometer (346.0 g/mi).
Power transmission in the S7 Sportback is provided by the seven-speed S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive; Audi can also install an optional sport differential. The adaptive air suspension sport and the Audi drive select dynamic handling system are standard features. The standard wheel size is 19 inches. Dynamic steering and a sport exhaust for an enhanced sound experience are available as options.
