The dynamically elegant line of the exterior carries over to the interior of the Audi RS 7 Sportback, which is immersed in sporty black. The salient element is the “wrap-around,” a horizontal line below the windshield extending into the front doors. The low instrument panel, which conveys the driver a sense of freedom and expanse, rounds out the concept of taut lines with an elegant curve. The frame of the door opener invokes the shape of the rear side window, demonstrating Audi's great attention to the smallest of details.
The cockpit is rigorously tailored to the driver, with the center console oriented in the driver's direction. The selector lever features a perforated leather knob and sports an RS badge. The shift paddles have an aluminum-look finish. The dial instruments have black faces, white numbers and red needles. RS 7 badges, some three-dimensional, adorn the tachometer, the three-spoke flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel, the illuminated entry sills and the seven-inch color display of the driver information system. The bars of the door openers are open-worked, another typical RS element.
A special feature in the driver information system is the shift light for the eight-speed tiptronic's manual mode. As engine speed increases, green segments in the display form a bar. The bar turns red and blinks shortly before the red line is reached. Displays for the gear selected, boost pressure, oil temperature, speed and a lap timer round out the RS-specific driver information system. The driver information system and MMI monitor welcome the driver with specific RS 7 start screens.
The decorative bezel below the retractable eight-inch monitor and the infotainment bezel sport a black piano finish look. Carbon is used for the standard inlays. Four additional materials are available, including piano lacquer and the particularly elegant aluminum/Beaufort wood black. The footrest, pedals and soft keys in the MMI navigation plus terminal gleam in an aluminum-look finish. The headlining is made of black cloth, with options for lunar silver or black Alcantara.
Standard equipment includes heated RS sport seats with pronounced side bolsters, integrated head restraints and embossed RS 7 logos. They are power-adjustable and have pull-out seat cushions. The seats, whose center sections feature diamond quilting, are covered in a combination of black Alcantara and leather. Upon request, Audi also covers the seats with particularly high-grade, naturally processed Valcona leather in either black or lunar silver and with honeycomb quilting.
Also available are comfort seats with memory function, with the option of a massage and ventilation function. The rear of the Audi RS 7 Sportback has two sportily sculpted individual seats with integrated head restraints. Regardless of which options, the uncompromising quality and polished finish with which Audi builds its cars is evident in every detail.
The RS 7 Sportback has a long, electrically actuated rear lid that extends far up into the roof. The cargo area already offers a capacity of 535 liters (18.89 cu ft) in the base configuration, and this can be increased to 1,390 liters (49.09 cu ft) by folding down the split rear seat backs. Thanks to the straight side walls and virtually flat floor, the space can be utilized very well.
