The 2022 RS 7 will return to the U.S. with stunning performance and the striking design of the all-new RS design language. The five-door coupe is expected to be equipped with a 4.0 L TFSI bi-turbo V8 that will generate 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The visceral performance capabilities of the RS 7 will be underlined by its lowered stance, aggressive RS styling, and flared wheel arches that will make it nearly an inch wider on each side over the new Audi A7.

On the interior part, you can expect to get the 2022 RS7 with its usual RS theme-based design elements all over. Standard features will include the Audi MMI touch system and the next-generation Audi virtual cockpit. You can also expect the standard RS sport seats draped in Valcona leather upholstery.

Great looks

Cons

Cabin Space isn't adequate

What's New?

Audi had revamped the RS7 for the 2021 model year and hence there aren’t many changes expected for the 2022 model year. 

There are rumors around that the 2022 RS7 might get a plug-in hybrid powertrain as an option.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The 2022 Audi RS7 will be a wide-bodied, heart-pounding four-door sports car that will feature the practicality of a sedan and the performance of a hot-hatch. This all-new RS7 will represent the mightiest version of the comparably subdued Audi A7. The RS model will wear more aggressive-looking bodywork and will have exclusive high-performance equipment that will help it compete with raucous rivals such as the Mercedes-AMG GT 63, BMW M8 Gran Coupe, and Porsche Panamera Turbo.

Now, it is pretty obvious that the 2022 RS7 will not be a complete overhaul over the outgoing model and that might just make one wonder what’s the buzz all about. What’s also pretty obvious is that you perhaps have landed on the right page to get all the details about the 2022 RS7 to find out more. Let's read further.

2022 Audi RS 7 Pricing and Features

For the 2022 Audi RS7, there’s only one trim to choose from, and it is expected to start within a range of $114,000-$120,000. Since there are no major changes and this will be a carry-forward model of the 2021 model we presume it will get an RS-tuned suspension, large optional Carbon ceramic brakes, and an RS-specific rear bumper. There will be no optional packages as such, but the Black optics package will be available as before and will get 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 will adorn the 2022 model too. The interior is expected to be quite spacious too, and the RS7 will come with an above-average trunk space of 24.9 cu-ft similar to the 2021 RS7.

2022 Audi RS 7 Engine and Performance

The 2022 Audi RS7 will be equipped with the same monstrous 4.0L TFSI bi-turbo V8 engine that churns out a whopping 591 horses and 590 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes mated to a super slick 8-speed TripTronic gearbox and power is sent to all four wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. 

The 2022 model is also expected to get an electric boost and will probably be getting a plug-in hybrid trim level if rumors are to be believed. The combustion engine and the electric motors in combination will perhaps help make the car put out somewhere close to 650 horses.

Talking about the performance, the RS7 is essentially a rocket on 4 wheels that don’t just carry 5 passengers but pamper them in the lap of sumptuous luxury. The RS7 will be capable of 0-60 MPH in around 3.0 seconds and will be able to cover the quarter-mile distance in just over 11.0 seconds.

*2021 Audi RS7 data used for reference

For reference, the McLaren 570 which is an all-out supercar does a 0-60 MPH in 3.2 seconds and quarter-mile in 11.1 seconds and then you have the 2022 Audi RS7 that essentially will be a luxury sedan and will deliver the performance numbers of a supercar. To that add the extra push that will be coming in from the electric motors and the 2022 RS7 will make it quicker by a few tenths of a second and this 5 seater sedan will certainly put a few supercars to shame.

Out of all the high-performance luxury sedans that are out there in the market, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe has the highest power and torque numbers. However, 0-60 MPH timings are well within sub-four seconds ballpark for the new 2022 Audi RS 7. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 has a top speed of 193 mph and can reach 0-60 MPH in just 3.1 seconds. The Gran Coupe is the least powerful in the lot but accelerates much quicker and owing to that does 0-60 MPh in just a shade over 3.0 seconds. ​

2022 Audi RS 7 Fuel Economy

Fuel economy isn’t something you should care about when you’re going for a car in this segment. Cars like the RS7 are gas guzzlers. Since the 2022 RS7 would be getting the same standard powertrain as the 2021 model, there will not be much change in the fuel economy. 

If you intend to drive the RS7 around the city, it will get you around 15 miles on a gallon while on the highway this figure can go up to around 22 miles. The RS7 is expected to get an EPA rating of 17 MPG combined which is pretty standard for cars here in this segment. 

And in case you happen to be one of those who care for nature, then you probably should wait and get the hybrid trim of the RS7 as it will consume less gas, have lower emission, and offer the same thrill as the gas-only model.

The Porsche Panamera Turbo is the most fuel-efficient car, which is surprising since it is built as a sports car and shares the powertrain with the Audi RS7. As for the Audi RS7, the gas numbers are nothing to write home about but The surprises continue, as the BMW M8 even with the best performance is better in terms of fuel efficiency than the RS7. The Mercedes Benz AMG GT 63 ties with the Audi RS 7 in terms of fuel efficiency.

2022 Audi RS 7 Interior

The interiors of the 2022 RS7 will stay pretty much the same as the 2021 model. Perhaps, the plug-in hybrid trim will get a differently styled instrument cluster but the interior design will be the same as the existing RS7.

The interior of the existing RS7 is a nice blend of sporty and luxury. We love the top-notch built quality of the interior with premium material used all-around. Everything will feel solid and will easily last a lifetime. The design will be typical Audi along with great ergonomics on offer. 

As for the infotainment and Audi’s cockpit display, you will get 3 large screens at the front of which two of them will be touchscreens. The two touchscreens will sit in the center and the one that sits lower near the center console will be dedicated to climate control and seat adjustment controls.

Physical buttons will be a thing of the past in the 2022 car and in case you have to change the temperature or turn the seat heating on, there will be a large touchscreen for you to do that. Then there will be another massive touch screen that will sit right above the bottom screen and this one will be dedicated to all your infotainment controls and features.

The third screen in the car will sit right in front of the driver and will get Audi’s virtual cockpit system. This system will house the instrument cluster, the navigation system, and many other functions so that the driver doesn’t have to take his/her eyes off the road while driving.

With the power and performance on offer, you may feel that the RS7 might be a compromise in terms of passenger space and creature comfort but no, the RS7 still is a luxury sedan and will get all the amenities like one. The RS7 will offer an ample amount of room on both rows of seats. Three adults on the back seat will be a bit of a squeeze but they still will be pretty comfortable while traveling around. 

The RS7 will get sporty bucket seats at the front that have aggressive bolsters to hold you tight in place. As for the rear seats too have been scooped out to offer solid bolstering to the passengers sitting and prevent them from being thrown around while the driver makes high-speed cornering maneuvers. Overall, the interior of the RS7 will be top-notch and there will be nothing to complain about.

As for the competition, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 is the most spacious hands down. And the BMW M8 isn’t far behind the Merc in terms of front and rear space on offer. As for the Audi RS7 and the Porsche Panamera, the space on offer is no the lower side as compared to the Merc and the BMW but if we compare them then the Audi is more spacious than the Porsche any time of the day.

2022 Audi RS 7 Exterior

The Audi RS7 will be among the most futuristic and sporty-looking cars on the market. It will be longer and wider than the regular A7 and will have some very unique design cues. It is expected to get the large three-dimensional, single frame honeycomb pattern front grille with gloss black finish that will impart it a very beefy fascia.

Plus, it will also have a lowered bumper with a front lip spoiler that will make it look even more striking. Then there will be large air vents to aid in aerodynamics and lend the RS7 an even more aggressive and sporty stance.

Above the side air vents, you can expect a set of unique matrix LED headlights that will make the car look even more striking. On the side, you’ll notice the lowered body skirts and the large wheels. The RS7 will get 21-inch cast-aluminum wheels as before and Audi will also offer 22-inch wheels as options.

At the back, you will get an all-new Audi Matrix LED taillights design that will light up in a very distinctive shape, and there will also be the light bar that will flow across the entire width of the car- a feature that is getting more and more common in cars these days.

The BMW M8 has by far the largest car in terms of dimension here. While the Porsche Panamera is the winner in terms of utilizing the dimensions well to carve out a decent amount of space for the passenger on the inside. All the cars here have very commanding stances and road presence. The ground clearance is almost the same for all these cars except for the Audi RS7. The Audi RS 7 upon arrival will be one of the most equipped car ever. Some of the standard features you can expect in the 2022 RS7 are:

  • Daytime running LEDs
  • Honeycomb design front grill
  • New Sport Exhaust
  • Retracting Spoiler
  • 21-inch 5-spoke RS design alloy wheels
  • Sunroof
  • Power liftgate
  • LED headlight and taillights
  • Cornering headlights
  • Powered spoiler
  • Speed sensitive rain detecting variable intermittent wipers

2022 Audi RS 7 Safety

The Audi A7 was ranked the ‘TOP SAFETY PICK’ by IIHS in 2021. And since the RS7 will be based on the A7 with more standard safety features, we can safely say that the 2022 Audi RS7 will be a very safe ride. The 2022 Audi RS7 Sportback is yet to undergo crash tests under NHTSA or the IIHS for ratings

The 2022 Audi RS7 will get all the safety features and functions that the 2021 model got. The 2021 model hasn’t yet been tested and rated by the NHTSA and the IIHS yet but the A7 was and the A7 was ranked as the ‘top safety pick’ by the IIHS, we can safely assume that the RS7 too is as safe as the A7 

The 2022 Audi RS7 will be equipped with advanced safety features such as ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Adaptive Rollover Control, and Advanced Dual Stage SRS Airbag System. For further assists, there will also be a Night Vision camera that works in tandem with Adaptive Cruise Control and a virtual 360-degree camera view.

2022 Audi RS 7 Competition

2022 Audi RS7 Vs 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo

What will make the 2022 Audi RS7 stand above the Porsche Panamera Turbo will be the price difference. Both are no doubt, well-performing vehicles in their regards. But the Panamera Turbo has a less stiff ride, compared to the Audi RS7’s, whereas both have adaptive air suspension. However, the Porsche Panamera Turbo outshines the Audi RS7 with its roomier interior, and unmistakably Porsche treatment.

So, as far as aesthetics are concerned, both are standing on solid grounds on their terms. It's in the performance figures, where both these cars differ in a major way despite using the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. The Audi RS7 is expected to put out 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, whereas, from the same mill, the Panamera Turbo produces 550 hp and 567 lb-ft of torque. Precisely the reason why the Panamera Turbo is more fuel-efficient than the upcoming RS7.

2022 Audi RS7 Vs 2021 Mercedes Benz AMG GT 63

It’s on the inside, where the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 outshines the RS7, with its roomier cabin and extra legroom and headroom. Performance-wise, the AMG GT 63 is quicker than the upcoming RS7 and has a higher top speed, thanks to its 9-Speed Automatic transmission. The Mercedes-AMG is also lighter at 4447 lbs, whereas the 2022 Audi RS7 is expected to weigh around 5000 lbs.

But when it comes to power output, the 2022 Audi RS7 will surpass the Mercedes-AMG GT 63. But when it comes to 0-60mph timings, the AMG GT 63 rushes past the 2021 RS7 and this is partly because of the better power to weight ratio which we feel will continue with the 2022 RS7.

2022 Audi RS7 Vs 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe with xDrive might be the least powered vehicle in this competition, provided its starting MSRP is lower than the upcoming 2022 Audi RS7. Having said that, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe is the fastest in this lot and can reach 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.

The only thing that will give Audi an edge is its stylish and well-balanced stance. The M8 Gran Coupe feels long and unnecessarily bulge-ish at times when compared to the sleek and sharp Audi, and for something that costs almost $130,000, the BMW is among the most expensive in the lot too tilting the scale towards the competitively priced RS7.

2022 Audi RS 7 Final Verdict

The 2022 Audi RS7 is expected to hit the showrooms somewhere in the last quarter of 2021. Audi hasn’t entirely unveiled the specs and features of the 2022 but as per our scoop and inside sources we can tell that it will not be a major shift from the 2021 model. As said earlier, the RS7 probably will be getting a plug-in hybrid trim level and complete details of that model will be released later this year as Audi is very secretive about it at the moment. 

The 2022 Audi RS7 Sportback will be a drop-dead gorgeous car just like the 2021 model. Its lust-worthy exterior and upscale interior will justify the hefty price tag. Starting from the standard premium Valcona leather treatment, to performance-enhancing Carbon Ceramic brakes and a screaming V8 engine, the 2022 Audi RS7 is going to be a serious vehicle. It will have an engaging engine and an addictive engine note too. Thus the RS7 is a step up and is worth all the extra money you will be paying for the 2022 model over the 2021 model.
