2023 Audi RS7



The Audi RS7 is a largemouth high-performance hatchback sedan with swollen fenders and a roomy interior packed with the luxuries and high-tech gear you'd expect in a supercar. The thrills come from a 591-hp twin-turbocharged V-8 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. The RS7 is nearly 5000 pounds, but it feels surprisingly nimble for its size thanks to its rear-wheel steering system and excellent suspension. There's always the 444-hp S7, which we review separately, if this much power isn't enough. Because of its hatchback body style, the RS7 is supremely comfortable and even more practical. While the RS7's acceleration puts it on par with mega-sedans like the BMW M5 Competition and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, the driving experience is less visceral than in the big Bimmer or killer Cadillac.
