    4.7 (Excellent)
    15 City / 25 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Audi RS 7 OVERVIEW

    Audi’s resident super sedan, the RS 7 treats luxury seriously and performance like a zealot. You get a silky cruiser for the daily commute and an intimidating beast for weekends at the track, all backed by a sensational twin-turbo V8.

    What's New for 2016

    The RS 7 receives new headlamp and taillamp treatments, plus revised instrumentation and infotainment controls.

    Choosing Your Audi RS 7

    RS 7 is a couple-styled, hatchback sedan with the interior dimensions of a full-size luxury car. Thanks to its standard adaptive air suspension, the RS 7 can deliver both a plush highway ride and track-worthy handling.

    The twin-turbo 4-liter V8 produces 560 horsepower for eye-popping acceleration. The RS 7 shoots from zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, which makes it one the fasted cars you can own regardless of size. Drivers can tweak how the RS 7 behaves by selecting various modes for most performance functions. An eight-speed automatic transmission, 20- inch wheels and all-wheel drive round out the package.

    The RS 7 comes in a single trim level that’s packaged with elite features like full LED lighting, carbon-fiber body trim, an electric spoiler, four-zone climate control, web-based navigation, numerous collision alert systems and a 14-speaker Bose sound system.

    Beyond all that, Audi offers a number of option packages:

    • Driver Assistance: Equips the RS 7 with sophisticated safety technology like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, corner-view cameras and a collision mitigation system ($2,450)
    • Contour Seating: Features multicontour seats with passenger memory and front ventilation and massage ($1,950)
    • Cold Weather Bundles heated rear seats with a heated steering wheel ($500)
    • Matte Aluminum Optic Adds matte aluminum accent panels to the exterior ($950)
    • Carbon Optic Includes carbon-fiber body components, carbon-fiber engine cover accents and body-color mirrors ($4,500)

    Prices for options may seem reasonably priced for a car at this level, but don't worry -- Audi includes some irrational exuberance in the form of black alcantara headliner for $3,000 and a $4,900 Bang & Olufsen sound system.

    For even greater distinction, you can opt for 21-inch wheels, red brake calipers, sport-tuned exhaust, power soft-close doors, a faux suede headliner and a Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system.

    CarsDirect Tip

    As worthy as the option packages might be, none has any effect on performance. The RS 7 is incredibly fast and thrilling right from the start.
