2021 Audi S7 Review

  • Attractive and refined interior
  • Lots of high-tech features
  • Infotainment system can be distracting to use
  • Limited rear headroom
  • 21-inch wheels with high-performance summer tires are now standard
  • Minor changes to available advanced driver aids
  • Based on the fifth A7 generation introduced for 2019

There's a lot to like about the Audi A7. It's based on Audi's A6 midsize sedan but it has a sleeker profile and a rear hatchback for greater cargo-carrying versatility. It's a great all-arounder, but its 335-horsepower engine might seem a little lacking to buyers looking for an engaging sport sedan. Thankfully, the 444-horsepower 2021 Audi S7 is also available and ready to satisfy your requirement for velocity.

The Audi S7 is more than just an A7 with a thrilling motor, of course. It also includes several performance-oriented upgrades not available on the A7. These include larger wheels with summer tires to improve grip and an optional package with a sport rear differential and a more boisterous exhaust note.

Worthy rivals to the S7 include the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera. All have coupe-like styling and plenty of potential for performance. Among this group, the S7 easily holds its own.

Which S7 does Edmunds recommend?

Most S7 buyers should be just fine with the base Premium Plus trim. It has plenty of features, and you can use the cost savings compared to the Prestige to get a few extra options, such as the Executive package, if you like.

Audi S7 models

The 2021 Audi S7 is a five-passenger luxury sport sedan with a hatchback-style trunk. It comes in Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels. All S7s have a turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine (444 horsepower, 443 lb-ft of torque), all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine also makes use of a 48-volt mild hybrid system designed to maximize fuel efficiency. The S7 is sportier and more powerful than the Audi A7 but slots under the high-performance RS 7 — both of which are reviewed separately. Standout features for the S7 include:

Audi S7 vs. Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

Now in its third generation, the Mercedes-Benz CLS kick-started the swoopy four-door segment that now includes the Audi A7-S7-RS 7 line and the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe. The CLS is a seriously impressive sedan, with quick acceleration, an excellent infotainment system and impeccable interior construction. Selecting between the S7 and the AMG CLS 53 will be difficult for prospective buyers.

Audi S7 vs. Porsche Panamera

The Audi S7 and the Porsche Panamera have some similarities — these corporate cousins share a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6, for instance, and their infotainment system layouts are virtually identical. But the Panamera lineup is far more extensive, consisting of two body styles (one with an extended-wheelbase variant) and several powertrains. In general, the S7 is much less expensive than a similarly equipped Panamera.

Audi S7 vs. Audi RS 7

The Audi S7 is the sportier version of the A7, but the RS 7 is spicier still. The RS 7's mechanical equipment is roughly akin to the S7 equipped with the S Sport package. From there, the RS 7 adds a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 capable of launching this supersedan from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. If the six-figure price tag doesn't turn you off, the RS 7 is a seriously impressive upgrade.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 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.
