Luxury Sport Sedan

Vehicle2013 Audi S7 Prestige quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.0L 8cyl Turbo 7AM)
ReviewAs a driving/car enthusiast the S7 is the best of both worlds. Refined and luxurious interior, powerful turbine like engine. Automated manual tranmission can be driven as smoothly as an automatic, or as aggressively as any high performance manual trans would allow.
Test drove Porche Panamera 4S. Same performance with better fuel economy and less costly maintenance and sticker price. Power and speed are deceiving due to flat torgue curve almost throughout entire rpm range. Launch control is houligan's delight. Got back into my wife's MDX and thought the parking brake was on when accelerating. Smooth powerful brakes. Car drives like a smaller and lighter vehicle than what it is. June 2016 Alas this sexy Lookong vehicle's lease has expired. 3 years later not one defect. 20 inch rims are delicate and not strong enough for NJ winters. Routine mai tenace costs are 2-3 Times more expensive than similar Asian vehicles. Car is very roomy with hatch adding utility. Engine is destined so as not to compete with S8 it RS7 even though mechanically similar. Some engineering oversights such as read seats cannot be locked , radio goes on Automatically, hatch cannot be closed with remote, Windows and sunroof cannot be opened with key fob on hot days.
