With the 2017 Audi A7 focusing more on performance and luxury than the equivalent A6, the A7’s engine lineup is much less diverse, and generally much more powerful. Currently there are two different engine options on the A7 lineup in varying states of tune. Each engine is backed up with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive.
The A7’s base engine is a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that makes 333 hp in standard form, or 340 hp with the new-for-2017 A7 Competition Package. Torque stays at 325 lb-ft regardless of the horsepower output. The V-6-powered A7 is EPA-rated at 21/29/24 mpg city/highway/combined.
The S7’s engine is more powerful still; it’s a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 that produces 450 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The RS 7 shares that 4.0-liter V-8 with the S7, but gets 560 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque in standard trim, or a whopping 605 hp and 553 lb-ft in top-of-the-line RS 7 Performance trim. Fuel economy isn’t the point of the high-performance variants of the A7, but the EPA rates them nonetheless. The S7 nets an EPA-rated 17/27/21 mpg, while the RS 7 achieves 15/25/18 mpg.
Aside from the variety of power outputs, the entire A7 line is notable for its sleek, edgy sheetmetal, gorgeously crafted interior, and technology, including Google Maps.
