2020 Audi RS7 Sportback accelerates to hundreds in 3.4 secondsSeptember 25, 2019
This is 0.2 seconds faster than the official data provided by Audi.
German automakers are known to be overly cautious when it comes to publishing performance indicators for their cars, and Audi is no exception. For example, in the official press release of the new RS7 it was said that the magnificent Sportback needed 3.6 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h, but in the real test in the south of Germany the model indicator turned out to be less – 3.4 s.
Interestingly, the best result was achieved in 3.38 seconds, which makes it comparable to the old R8 V10 Plus. From zero to 200 km / h, acceleration took 11.9 seconds, which is one tenth of a second less than Audi.
With a second person in the cabin and a fully loaded trunk, the Audi RS7 Sportback drove a quarter mile in 11.8 seconds, so the lack of excess weight could bring it closer to around 11 seconds. This is not so bad, considering that the RS7 Sportback is far from the lightest car that can weigh up to 2,065 kg without a driver.
Speaking of weight, it should be noted that thanks to all-wheel drive and a new adaptive adjustment of the air suspension, the novelty does not seem heavy. In addition, quick gear changes and sharp controls make the Sportback nimble enough for its class. However, it is not ideal, since more stringent emission standards in Europe forced the installation of a diesel particulate filter for gasoline, while damping engine noise, so the novelty is not as loud as its predecessor.
It is possible that a hybrid version of the model with more power (and, probably, weight) will be presented later. In addition, the electrification expects the RS6 station wagon, which will be equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 working in conjunction with an electric motor that can significantly increase power to 591 hp.
