Power for the Audi S7 Sportback arrives from a 420-horsepower twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine. As well as being powerful, the 2013 Audi S7 Sportback engine’s employment of gasoline direct injection and cylinder on demand technology has allowed the power unit to maintain decent fuel economy averaging at 22 miles per gallon.
The 2013 Audi S7 Sportback’s engine is paired with a seven-speed S tronic transmission as well as quattro all-wheel drive enhanced by a sport differential. With an electronically limited 155-mile per hour top speed, 0 to 60-mile per hour acceleration times are rated at 4.9 seconds. The 2014 model year S7 Sportback presents minor interior trim options.
