High Performance and Innovative Design: The all-new Audi RS 7 Sportback

“The RS 7 Sportback is a interpretation of a five-door high-performance coupé with a grand tourer design,” conspicuous Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “With refinements to make it even some-more suitable for bland use and a implausible performance, what we have here is an superb square of sports apparatus for business who like their cars to underline overwhelming design.”

Innovative: a extraneous design

The new Audi RS 7 Sportback sits low to a ground. The flared round arches stress a relentlessly sporty inlet of a high-performance indication from Audi Sport. The impassioned breadth is no visible apparition – during 1,950 millimeters (76.8 inches) during a front fenders, a fasten magnitude has to widen an additional 40 millimeters (1.6 inches) or so over a Audi A7 Sportback. The new RS 7 Sportback shares a coupé-like lines of a bottom model’s body, though usually in 4 areas: a hood, a roof, a front doors and a tailgate. The RS-specific extraneous settlement gives a
5,009-millimeter (197.2-inch) grand tourer a sense all of a own.

The front of a new RS 7 Sportback facilities a broad, prosaic Singleframe with no resisting border. The radiator protecting grille with a RS-specific three-dimensional honeycomb structure has defended a shimmer black appearance. Large front atmosphere inlets and straight fins in shimmer black supplement to a assertive styling. A plane blade outlines a particular downward corner to a front end.

The side perspective of a new Audi RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 11.6 – 11.4 (20.3 – 20.6 US mpg); total CO2 emissions in g/km: 265 – 261 (426.5 – 420.0 g/mi))reveals neatly tangible lines and winding surfaces like well-toned muscles. A low shoulder line shifts a visible importance downward, while a window line rises toward a rear, giving a sense of impetus even when a automobile is stationary. The RS-specific doorway sills with black inlays intensify a high-performance Sportback’s graphic sense of brazen movement.

The behind end’s winding trailing corner and frame of lights joining a categorical behind lights make it one of a evil defining facilities of a RS 7 Sportback. At a speed of 100 km/h (62.1 mph), a spoiler will extend from a tailgate. The RS empty system, with a large, chrome-colored oval tailpipe on any side, sits underneath an RS-specific fender with a behind diffuser and settlement elements in shimmer black. The new RS 7 Sportback comes with LED headlights propitious as standard. The discretionary RS settlement LED laser headlights, with their dim bezels, and a LED behind lights are versed with energetic spin vigilance lights and run by RS-specific sequences when a automobile is sealed and unlocked.

V8 power: a expostulate system

The 4.0 TFSI in a new Audi RS 7 Sportback produces 441 kW (600 metric hp) and delivers 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque within a extended operation from 2,050 to 4,500 rpm. The high-performance Sportback will scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.1 mph) in usually 3.6 seconds. The tip speed is electronically singular to 250 km/h (155.3 mph); this can be increasing to 280 km/h (174 mph) with a Dynamic package and to 305 km/h (189.5 mph) with a Dynamic and package.

Thanks to a mild hybrid complement (MHEV) with a 48-volt categorical on-board electrical system, a 4.0 TFSI combines extent opening with high efficiency. The belt alternator starter can redeem adult to 12 kW appetite underneath peaceful acceleration and feed it into a lithium-ion battery as electricity. If a motorist releases a accelerator during a speed between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 to 99.4 mph), a expostulate government will name one of dual options. Depending on a pushing conditions and a settings in Audi expostulate select, a new RS 7 Sportback will possibly redeem appetite or seashore with a engine switched off. When a motorist stairs on a accelerator, a belt alternator starter will start a engine again. MHEV record allows for start-stop mode during speeds next 22 km/h (13.7 mph). As shortly as a automobile in front of a new RS 7 Sportback starts moving, a engine will open behind to life—even if a brakes are applied. With a MHEV-technology it is probable to revoke fuel expenditure by as most as 0.8 liters per 100 kilometers.

The cylinder on approach (COD) complement is another arms in a vehicle’s armory when it comes to efficiency. In aloft gears during low to middle loads and engine speeds, it will deactivate cylinders 2, 3, 5, and 8 by crude injection and ignition and shutting a intake and empty valves. In four-cylinder mode, a doing points will switch to a active cylinders during aloft loads, thereby improving efficiency, while a deactivated cylinders continue to run like gas springs, mostly but any losses. When a motorist presses a accelerator pedal, they are reactivated immediately. Each switchover takes small milliseconds and is probably undetectable by a motorist and passengers.

The four-liter engine produces a full-bodied and sporty V8 sound. The Audi expostulate select energetic doing complement allows adjustments to a grave snarl of a appetite unit. The discretionary RS competition empty complement with black tailpipe trim provides an even fuller sound. In a customizable RS1 and RS2 modes, business can confirm for themselves possibly they wish a sporty or offset sound.

The appetite constructed by a 4.0 TFSI flows around a customary eight-speed tiptronic delivery with optimized change times and a new launch control duty to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate system. Drive army are distributed to a front and behind axles in a 40:60 ratio around a quite involuntary core differential. If one round slips, some-more expostulate torque automatically goes to a shaft with a improved traction. Up to 70 percent can upsurge to a front wheels and adult to 85 percent to a behind wheels.

The wheel-selective torque control optimizes a flexible and assured doing of a new RS 7 Sportback, requesting a brakes kindly to a wheels on a inside of a hook before they have a possibility to slip. The quattro competition differential, accessible with a discretionary Dynamic and Dynamic and packages, shifts a torque between a behind wheels as indispensable during sporty cornering, thereby improving traction, stability, and dynamics.

Agility as standard: a suspension

Five-link front and behind axles hoop a parallel and longitudinal army exclusively on a new RS 7 Sportback. The linkages and a subframes are done mostly of aluminum. The line is 1,668 millimeters (65.7 in) during a front and 1,650 millimeters (65 in) during a rear.

The customary RS adaptive atmosphere suspension with tranquil damping has been tuned privately to fit a RS and now allows a new RS 7 Sportback to strech a tip speed of 305 km/h (189.5 mph) interjection to a new atmosphere open procedure with a open rate 50% higher. The competition atmosphere cessation can be set to 3 modes and includes involuntary spin control. In a normal position, a physique of a new RS 7 Sportback sits 20 millimeters (0.8 in) reduce than an Audi A7 Sportback with customary suspension. At speeds above 120 km/h (74.6 mph), it will dump by a serve 10 millimeters (0.4 in) and offer a lift mode enabling a automobile to be lifted by 20 millimeters (0.8 in) if requested. The conspicuous kingpin desire of a RS competition atmosphere cessation offers a motorist a giveaway choice between long-distance comfort and tip performance.

The discretionary RS competition cessation and with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) binds the RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 11.6 – 11.4 (20.3 – 20.6 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 265 – 261 (426.5 – 420.0 g/mi))even some-more firmly to a road and improves handling. Pitching and rolling movements are significantly reduced during spirited driving. A new era of dampers with integrated valves provides for a graphic spread between a several Audi expostulate select modes.

Progressive steering with sporty and approach ratios is a customary underline of a new RS 7 Sportback. The sporty grand tourer can optionally be propitious with dynamic all-wheel steering. This combines energetic steering during a front axle, that uses an forever non-static aria call gearing, with a apart behind shaft steering complement with a shaft expostulate and line rods. At low speeds, a behind wheels spin as most as 5 degrees in a conflicting instruction relations to a front wheels. This reduces a branch round by as most as one scale (3.3 ft), and a RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 11.6 – 11.4 (20.3 – 20.6 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 265 – 261 (426.5 – 420.0 g/mi)) is so even some-more flexible in city trade and parsimonious curves. At middle and high speeds, a behind wheels spin by as most as dual degrees in a same direction, gripping a automobile solid in a lane.

A motorist can establish a sense of an RS 7 Sportback regulating a Audi expostulate select energetic doing system. There are 6 profiles available: comfort, auto, dynamic, potency and a customizable RS-specific RS1 and RS2 modes, that can be enabled directly around an RS MODE symbol on a steering wheel. Audi expostulate name influences factors including engine and delivery management, steering assistance, a suspension, energetic all-wheel steering, a quattro competition differential, a empty flaps, and a approach in that a involuntary atmosphere conditioning works. In RS2 mode, business can switch a Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) to competition mode during a hold of a button.

The new RS 7 Sportback is propitious as customary with 21-inch expel aluminum wheels with a 10-spoke star settlement and 275/35 tires. Audi Sport offers discretionary RS-specific wheels with a 22-inch 5-V-spoke settlement with 285/30 tires in silver, matt titanium look, shimmer incited finish, and shimmer incited anthracite black finish. The calipers of a RS stop complement with internally ventilated and seperated discs (420 millimeters (16.5 in) during a front, 370 millimeters (14.6 in) during a rear) are embellished black as customary or red on request. On a discretionary RS ceramic brakes, a calipers can be gray, red or blue. The discs magnitude 440 millimeter (17.3 in) during a front and 370 millimeters (14.6 in) during a rear. The new RS ceramic stop complement tips a lamp at 34 kilograms (75 lb) reduction than a steel counterpart, that cuts down on unsprung mass.

Sporty and futuristic: a interior

A stripped-down demeanour with sporty accents are a pivotal stylistic elements in a interior of a new Audi RS 7 Sportback. Much like a extraneous design, a settlement denunciation combines taut, tough surfaces with clearly tangible contours. There is copiousness of space for a motorist and passenger, with a pattern of a interior accomplishing a seamless transition to a unconventional user interface. The top MMI touch response arrangement is embedded in a black-paneled pattern in a approach that renders it roughly unfit to see where a arrangement ends and a vicinity begin. The motorist can use a top RS guard arrangement to call adult an overview of expostulate complement member temperatures, extent g-forces and information per tire pressures and temperatures.

Special RS displays use a Audi practical cockpit to yield sum of tire pressure, torque, performance, oil temperature, boost pressure, path times, acceleration, and g-forces. The change light arrangement prompts a motorist to upshift when a rev extent is reached. The discretionary mild hybrid complement (MHEV) also shows some RS-specific information.

The flat-bottomed, entirely seperated RS competition leather steering round with new vast RS aluminum change paddles facilities multifunction buttons, that a motorist can use to capacitate a new Audi expostulate name RS1 and RS2 modes. This automatically opens a RS-specific displays in a Audi practical cockpit. The RS and RS 7 logos accoutre a steering wheel, seats, and bright front doorway sill trims. Logo projectors on a front and behind doors lamp a Audi Sport button onto a belligerent when a doors are open.

RS competition seats upholstered with black pearl Nappa leather with a rhombus settlement and RS embossing are propitious as standard. An even sportier choice is accessible in a form of RS competition seats lonesome with Valcona leather, featuring a honeycomb settlement and RS embossing. The puncture allows a movement duty for a initial time.

The dual RS settlement packages, accessible in possibly red or gray, move a dash of color, with resisting stitching on a Alcantara steering round rim, rigging push gaiter and knee pads. Each package also facilities chair belt straps with colored circumference and RS building mats. Optional inlays in carbon, healthy gray-brown timber or matt aluminum open adult a operation of possibilities for customizing a interior.

The new RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 11.6 – 11.4 (20.3 – 20.6 US mpg); total CO2 emissions in g/km: 265 – 261 (426.5 – 420.0 g/mi)) offers an array of additional functions not seen in a prototype model. For a initial time, Audi Sport is charity a five-door grand tourer with a three-seater behind bench. The sporty four-seater settlement with a two-seater behind dais is still available. The luggage cell offers a bottom ability of 535 liters (18.9 cu ft), that can be increasing to as most as 1,390 liters (49.1 cu ft) with a separate behind seatbacks folded down. The prolonged tailgate opens and closes electrically as standard, with an discretionary preference pivotal permitting it to be operated by feet gesticulate control.

All a best equipment: infotainment, support systems, colors, and materials

For a new RS 7 Sportback, Audi Sport offers an endless operation of convenience, connectivity, and motorist assistance equipment. The jaunty grand tourer couples relentless sportiness with unobstructed long-distance capability. The automobile will assistance a motorist out in a far-reaching operation of situations. More than 30 support systems are available, including adaptive journey assist, intersection assist, line change warning, quell warning, and 360-degree cameras.

The operation of colors for a new Audi RS 7 Sportback encompasses thirteen customary extraneous paint finishes, including a dual RS-specific shades of Nardo gray and Sebring black, clear effect, as good as 5 accessible matt outcome paint finishes. The extraneous counterpart housings are shimmer black as standard, with aluminum matt or a tone of a automobile accessible as options. Flaps, blades, sill inlays, window container trims, and a behind diffuser shave can tumble underneath one of 3 styling packages in matt aluminum, black, or carbon. Upon request, a Audi rings and RS logos during a front and behind are also accessible in shimmer black for a black and CO styling packages. The different Audi disdainful operation offers additional possibilities for personalization.
