2020 Audi S7 Review

Last year, Audi redesigned its A7, a sporty-looking hatchback sedan related to the brand's A6 midsize sedan. For 2020, the Audi S7 follows it to market as the higher-performing alternative.

Unlike the previous-generation S7, which had a burly V8 engine, the new 2020 model comes with a turbocharged V6 engine. That might seem like a downgrade, but this new V6 is plenty strong. It's rated at 444 horsepower, which is just 6 hp fewer than what the old S7 had, and it makes more torque too. It's also got about 100 more horsepower than regular A7's V6, and it helps the S7 sprint from 0 to 60 mph in an impressively quick 4.5 seconds, according to Audi.

Unfortunately, the new S7 also comes with a new infotainment system that can be distracting to use while driving. It's also held back for its limited rear-seat headroom, a byproduct of that gracefully tapering rear roofline. If that's a major concern, you might be better served by Audi S6, which is virtually identical save for the roofline. Otherwise, the 2020 S7 provides a very appealing mix of performance, luxury and style.

Which S7 does Edmunds recommend?

Since the 2020 Audi S7's primary mission is performance, we suggest sticking with the base Premium Plus trim level and add the optional S Sport package that includes all-wheel steering, a sport exhaust and a sport rear differential. For convenience, we'd also add the Driver Assistance package that comes with some useful features, such as traffic-adaptive cruise control.

Audi S7 models

The 2020 Audi S7 is a five-passenger luxury sport sedan that is offered in Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels. Both come with a 444-horsepower turbocharged V6 engine, all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    Audi S7 vs. the competition

    Audi S7 vs. BMW M5

    If you're considering an S7, we suspect performance is likely a motivating factor. Among midsize luxury sport sedans, the BMW M5 is a standout. It has much more power and performance than the S7, but it also has a price tag to match. When they are similarly equipped, however, the difference in price is narrower.

    Compare Audi S7 & BMW M5 features

    Audi S7 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 S sedan would be a great way to go if you want a smaller and more performance-oriented sedan. It packs a 503-hp V8 and comes with plenty of luxury features. Pricing is also a little lower for the C 63 S too. But it's not as roomy in the back as the S7.

    Compare Audi S7 & Mercedes-Benz C-Class features

    Audi S7 vs. Porsche Panamera

    The S7 and the Panamera share many similarities, not the least of which is that they're both built by the Volkswagen Group parent company. Both have an unusual fastback hatch for added style and convenience as well as high levels of refinement. The Porsche Panamera lineup, though, is deeper, with many more variants with differing levels of performance and price.

    Should I lease or buy a 2020 Audi S7?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
