Product Overview

Audi RS 7 Sportback C8 (Typ 4K8) is a high-performance executive sedan in production from 2019. It is available with a single hot-vee bi-turbo V8 engine that displaced 4.0 liters paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.
The mild-hybrid drivetrain enables new efficiency features, though the difference is, as the name suggests, mild. Nevertheless, this makes for one of the last V8s available in this segment.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi RS 7 Sportback (C8) comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.

Sentiment Score 69%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
£90k-plus price tag makes it over £20,000 more expensive than the diesel-powered S7. 4.0-litre unit makes 592bhp, 39bhp more than before, while an 800Nm torque figure gives it a full 100Nm of extra twist. There's a 48-volt mild-hybrid system too, though that's more for reducing consumption – numbers yet to be confirmed by Audi.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Lots of fun to drive
  • Good standard equipment
Cons
  • Not as practical as the S7
  • Not the most practical

Sentiment Score 84%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The second-generation Audi RS 7 is exactly what a grand tourer should look like. The infotainment system is the same one you'll find in other recent additions to the Audi range. The RS 7 won't arrive until the 2020 model year, so it hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Pros
  • Fantastic performance
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Easy-to-navigate navigation
Cons
  • No Android Auto or Apple CarPlay
  • No adaptive cruise control
