The 2018 Audi S7 could get by on its styling alone. But there's a lot more to this luxury sedan than just looks.
The standard V8 engine is sophisticated but makes tremendous amounts of power. This is a state-of-the-art turbocharged V8 that's just as capable of loafing along at low rpm as it is bursting toward redline. The V8's silken manners almost defy the fact that internal combustion is contained within.
Beating alongside that wonder motor is this Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system. It's this constantly evolving system's ability to distribute torque to the four wheels that defines the S7's manners and ensures its rapid progress across snowy or low-traction surfaces. Many other makers offer all-wheel drive, but Audi has made it a vivid part of the S7's character.
Big, fast cars, however, need fuel. While the seven-speed automatic transmission can be manually shifted, the EPA-rated fuel economy numbers are only modest. Expect 21 mpg in combined driving (17 city/27 highway).
In significant ways, the S7 is a zoomier version of the S6 sedan. But it's slightly less passenger-friendly due to reduced rear headroom and a two-person-only seating configuration. At the same time, the S7's hatchback cargo area is bigger and more versatile than the traditional trunks of sedan and "four-door coupe" rivals.
The S7 is available in two trim levels. The Premium Plus is extremely well equipped, while the Prestige pretty much opens the door to extra options such as a Bang & Olufsen sound system. One thing to keep in mind is that the S7 features Audi's previous-generation MMI electronics interface that lacks the latest controller and Virtual Cockpit gauge cluster. Nevertheless, this version of MMI still works well and we still love the array of technology on offer, including standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE data connectivity.
The 2018 Audi S7 packs a lot of substance inside its stylish bodywork. Use the tools here on Edmunds to help you find the perfect S7 for your garage.

Vehicle Prestige quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.0L 8cyl Turbo 7AM)
Review Great all around car....sporty but very flexible....can haul...people or lots of stuff . I have a 2016 A7 and just wanted to try the S7. My biggest complaint is on all cars now ....the auto turn off when you are stopped...You can cancel this feature but the car defaults to it every time you shut the car off.
