Every S7 is endowed with a turbocharged 4-liter V8 with 450 horsepower and a seven-speed automated manual transmission. You also get a sport-tuned adaptive air suspension and a performance differential that can transfer power between the rear wheels. As expected in an Audi of this caliber, all-wheel drive and a selectable driving mode system are standard. The S7 plows from zero to 60 mph in a scant 4.3 seconds.
The S7's interior is done up in diamond-stitched leather and high-end features like four-zone climate control, a web-based navigation and infotainment system, and a 14-speaker Bose audio system with HD radio. You can upgrade to a 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system in place of the Bose unit.
For safety, there's a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and a blind-spot warning system -- all standard.
- The Driver Assistance package tacks on lane-keeping assist, a surround-view camera system, collision mitigation, and adaptive cruise control with automatic braking and accelerating.
Infrared night vision with pedestrian detection is a standalone option.
- The Comfort Seating package adds multicontour seats throughout with ventilation and massage in front.
- You can also get heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel in the Cold Weather package.
Power soft-close doors and rear thorax airbags are available separately. Note that the S7 carries bucket seats in the rear, so it's strictly a four-seater.
- The Black Optic package spruces up the exterior with body-color mirrors, a gloss black single-fame grille and gloss black window surrounds.
LED headlamps are available as standalone option.
The S7 is obviously a fully equipped luxury-sport sedan from the start. That said, we do recommend the excellent Comfort Seating package ($2,000) if you intend to take long trips with any regularity.
