2020 Audi RS7 Sportback India launch date revealed

The four-door coupe is powered by a 600hp, 4.0-litre petrol V8.

Audi India opened its order books for the RS7 Sportback just two, and now the company has announced that the super sedan will make its debut in our market on July 16, 2020.

The latest RS7 Sportback is a full-blooded version of the standard, Second-gen A7 four-door. It sets itself apart using numerous styling upgrades over the standard car. It gets a massive front grille and air dams and a prominent rear diffuser with twin oval-shaped exhausts. Wider than the standard car, the RS7 wears 21-inch wheels which can be bumped up to 22-inches as an optional extra.

Expect Audi to offer its complete range of customisations on the upcoming model.

On the inside, the RS7 is new-age Audi. Taking centre stage is a dual touchscreen setup which is further complemented by the automaker’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster. An RS flat-bottom steering wheel, paddle shifters, aluminium pedals and Alcantara upholstery further accentuate the model’s sporty pretensions.

Powertrain

The RS7 is powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo petrol V8 that pushes out a colossal 600hp and 800Nm of torque. The other headline figure is a 0-100kph time of just 3.6 seconds, Power is put down at all four wheels through Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system and an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

48V mild-hybrid system and cylinder deactivation tech are also a part of the package but don’t expect the RS7 to top any efficiency charts.

Price

Orders for the RS7 can be placed on the Audi India website and at authorised dealerships for a booking amount of ₹ 10 lakh. Being a full import, the RS7 will be expensive with prices touted to be upwards of ₹ 1.8crore (ex-showroom). Deliveries are expected to commence in August 2020. As such, the RS7 Sportback will contend with the likes of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and BMW M5 Competition in our market.
