New for 2018

The 2018 Audi S7 gets new 20-inch alloy wheels as standard and a new 21-inch option.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2018 Audi S7 is one of two performance-minded variants of the A7, slotting below the larger S8. It comes standard with Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system.

S7 Premium Plus: The base Premium Plus trim is well-equipped with standard features including full LED headlights, four-zone climate control, a sunroof, leather upholster, heated front seats, navigation, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android auto integration, a 14-speaker Bose audio system, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster display, Audi's MMI interface with an 8.0-inch screen, and a hands-free tailgate.

S7 Prestige: Move up to the Prestige trim and you get a corner view camera, a head-up display, soft-close doors, and interior ambient lighting. Optional features include multi-contour seats with ventilation and massage functions, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and the S Sport package, which adds dynamic steering, a sport rear differential, black exhaust finishers, and red brake calipers.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2018 Audi S7 is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 450 and 406 lb-ft of torque paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. EPA fuel economy estimates are 16/24 mpg city/highway.

Safety

The 2018 S7 hasn't been crash tested by the NHTSA and IIHS. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert come standard on the base Premium Plus trim. The Driver Assistance package adds adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and high beam assist. Night vision and pedestrian and large animal detection is only available on the Prestige grade.

Utility

The 2018 S7 has 24.5 cubic feet of cargo space that can be expanded to 49.1 cubic feet with the standard split-folding rear seats down.

What We Think

In a 2016 First Drive, we said that the S7 offers effortless acceleration and the engine stays quiet even at high speeds. Although the steering is responsive, it can be unpredictable at initial turn-in. Despite its size, the S7 handles well and stays neutral through turns. Interior quality is excellent and the cabin looks good with the Arras red option paired with red-accented carbon fiber interior trim.

Cool Fact

Unlike the A7, the S7 deletes the rear center middle seat, limiting seating capacity to four.
