The 2020 Audi S7 Sportback Gets The Twin-Turbo V6 With Hybrid Tech

Audi released specifications and U.S pricing of the 2020 Audi S7 that is bound for North America.

This S-Badged fastback is powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that dishes out 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, which is six horsepower shy of the outgoing twin-turbo V8 powered S7, but with 37 lb-ft of torque more.

This increase is possible thanks to the 48-volt electric compressor which mitigates lag upon acceleration from a standstill, thus increasing low-end torque. The powerplant is mated to an 8-Speed automatic transmission which channels the power to all four wheels thanks to the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

Outside, the 2020 Audi S7 sports subtle elements that set it apart from the A7, with a unique bumper and larger air ducts with aluminum-optic front splitter in the front, aluminum-optic side mirror housings on the sides, a splitter in the rear with oval exhaust tips and specific 20-inch wheels, among other touches.

Behind those wheels, larger brakes and a standard adaptive air suspension should give this S7 the driving dynamics it deserves. Audi also offers an array of packages, including the S Sport package which comes with four-wheel steering technology, a sport exhaust and red brake calipers.

Inside the cabin, the 2020 Audi S7 gets the Virtual Cockpit, a fully digital instrument cluster, along with Audi’s MMI Touch Response infotainment system which is displayed on two screens; a 10.1-inch upper screen and 8.6-inch lower screen. Standard tech includes adaptive cruise assist with traffic jam and turn assist and Audi side assist with rear cross traffic, four-zone automatic climate control, Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system and more.

The 2020 S7 offering is divided in two trim levels: the Premium Plus model and the Prestige model. The first one rings the register at $84,895 US while the top trim goes for a starting price of $90,495US.
