Overall Rating


The 2021 Audi RS7 is a wide-bodied, heart-pounding four-door sports car that features a usable back seat and practical hatchback – Car and Driver    

The second-generation 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback is one the fastest sedan that Audi offers, priced at $114,000. Part of the credit goes to its lower stance, wherein the RS7 sits 0.8-inches lower than the 2021 A7. There's a 48-volt mild-hybrid system on-board but that's just to keep the electronics running and for start/stop function. If had with the standard perforated steel rotor brakes, the RS7 will do 174 mph of top speed. However, if replaced with larger carbon-ceramic brakes then the 2021 Audi RS7 can reach up to 190 mph (electronically limited). 

The hexagonal Singleframe grille with large adjacent air vents on the front fascia properly complements the performance potential when the 2021 RS7 stands still. The same goes for its's interior, as well. The standard S sport seats with memory functions feel well contoured and padded. The flat-bottom steering wheel with the RS badge looks and feels, sporty and rich. German engineering is at its most precise and straight manner, in the new 2021 Audi RS7. So, should you own one? Let’s see.

8.0/10

"This all-new RS7 represents the mightiest version of the comparably subdued Audi A7" - Car and Driver

Audi makes it easy for there’s only one RS7 to choose from, and it starts with an MSRP of $114,000. It gets RS-tuned suspension, large optional Carbon ceramic brakes, and an RS-specific rear bumper. There are no optional packages as such, but the Black optics package gets you darkened exterior underline, 22-inch wheels, and a black grille. Audi's iconic Matrix-LED laser headlights with the dramatic light dance during ignition come standard. The interior is quite spacious too, and the RS7 gets the larger trunk space at 24.9 cu-ft in its class. 

Premium Valcona leather on all five seats, and leatherette covers on the instrument panel, door handles, and center console make up for the soft-touch cabin. The flared wheel arches on the side, with large, oval pipes at the adds to the RS7's sporty look. Standard on the second-generation Audi RS7 is the two-screen infotainment system at the center console, with haptic touch feedback. It comes with Audi’s PRIME subscription and supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2021 Audi RS 7 Buying Advice

The standalone trim of the 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback already loads in premium material that makes it worth the price tag. So if you're buying one, get it in the new Nardo Gray, with the Black Optics package for it to stand out in the parking lot. Rivals like the 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo and 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 have a higher cost price, and with optional packages can reach close to $200,000. Compared to that, the 2021 RS7 manages to tick all the boxes, for the price it comes for.

2021 Audi RS 7 Engine and Performance

8.0/10

This is a car about so much more than its performance figures and burly appearance – not always an RS given - TopGear

The 4.0-liter twin-turbo aluminum-intensive V8 in the 2021 RS7 produces 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Power figures have increased by 40hp and 74 lb-ft of torque, from the last iteration and it also beats the modern Porsche Panamera with its power output figures.

Audi RS 7 Sedan  Engine

The 8-speed automatic transmission is quick and spot-on, couple that to Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drivetrain system, the RS7 feels extremely agile to drive. The 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback lands the second spot with its power output, while the mighty BMW M8 Gran Coupe leads the pack with its 600-peak horsepower. While, both the 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo and 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 fail to overpower the RS7.

The 48-volt mild-hybrid system on-board the 2021 RS7 is there to keep the electronics running and for smooth start/stop functions. The RS7 cannot drive on electric power only. Hence it uses both its power units to thrust it anywhere it treds.

2021 Audi RS 7 Interior

7.5/10

Audi's obsession over well-integrated technology shows up in the new RS 7 - Edmunds

Because the 2021 Audi RS7 is a single trim-only model, the cabin has been specced to the brim where hardly any stones have been left unturned. With a predominantly darker theme, the cabin feels sporty and executive, at the same time. With very few buttons on the dashboard and the steering wheel, the interior of the 2021 RS7 feels futuristic. Most of the controls are accessed via the two-MMI touch response screens that have been neatly placed at an angle keeping it driver-focused.

 2021 Audi RS 7 Sedan Front Seat

But the main focal point has to be a 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit with its multiple viewing modes, that goes by the name of RS Performance 1, RS Performance 2, and RS Sport. These modes give very tailored information to the driver that keeps you focused and informed on the go. Information like lap timings, and engine, torque performances, etc, cater more for track days.

But if seen in comparison to the interior of the BMW M8, then the Audi feels a bit short-spaced. Part of the blame goes to the swooping roofline on the hatchback-styled RS7. Despite being, 83.4-inch wide with mirrors, the Audi RS7 feels a bit of push when trying to adjust five people in the second row. Also, the Audi RS7 has the most cargo space at 24.9 cu. ft. This is followed by the Porsche Panamera's cargo capacity. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 offers the least cargo space in this competition.

To top it off, the standard Bang and Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound make sure that the experience remains sublime at its sweetest spot.

“Sportback… a body style that's not popular in the U.S. But Audi Sport product manager Michael Binder believes the RS7's low, sweeping roofline gives it unique visual appeal and versatility.” - Automobile

The 2021 Audi RS7 is 1.7-inch wider and 1.6-inch longer than the 2021 Audi A7. Plus, the three-dimensional RS-specific single-frame grille with honeycomb patterns in gloss black finish, and aggressive bumpers, both on front and rear fascia separates it from its regular model. Below the Matrix-LED headlights, large side vents are unique to the RS7 and cannot be found in any other RS models.

2021 Audi RS 7 Third Quarter View 

The 2021 RS7 gets 21-inch cast-aluminum wheels as standard that can be upgraded to 22-inches. The RS7 also gets a standard all-wheel drive, which is further assisted by four-wheel steering on-board. The swiping lip spoiler neatly tucks in when idle, and extends at speeds above 60 mph. Large oval tailpipes on each side of the RS-specific rear bumper, with rear diffusers in between properly make the RS7 look the sports car it is.
