If last month, Audi introduced the 2015 A7/S7 Sportback Facelift, today the lineup was completed thanks to the arrival of the 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback Facelift. Do not expect a dramatic design update for this model as you will be disappointed! Still, the 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback Facelift comes with a new Singleframe grille with black honeycomb just like on other RS models, as well as with sharper corners.
Audi offers three optional packages – matt aluminum, gloss black and carbon – that make the RS7 Sportback even more attractive. Audi also said that the front bumper was updated too, but the modifications are small and you will not notice them.
The biggest update is the new headlights that have been adapted to the new Singleframe grille. The headlights are offered with LED technology as standard, while the optional headlights featuring the Matrix LED technology are offered with darkened trims. The taillights have a new interior design too.
The new 2015 RS7 Sportback Facelift also arrives with new paint finishes: Floret Silver, metallic; Glacier White, metallic; Mythos Black, metallic and Sepang Blue, pearl effect. The interior was updated with new outlet controls of the vent nozzles, shift paddles behind the steering wheel and the Quattro emblem on the instrument panel.
The standard MMI navigation plus with MMI touch now uses the modular infotainment platform of the latest generation. Under the hood, there is the same 4.0-liter TFSI V8 engine that delivers 560 hp (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
The RS7 Sportback Facelift accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. With the optional dynamic packages, top speed is increased to 280 km/h (174 mph) or 305 km/h (189.5 mph).
Despite these performances, fuel consumption of the V8 bi-turbo engine is 9.5 liters/100 km (24.8 US mph), while CO2 emissions are just 221 g/km.
In addition, the RS7 Sportback Facelift comes with standard adaptive air suspension and 20-inch forged lightweight alloy wheels. As an option, Audi offers 21-inch cast aluminum wheels in three color versions. Pricing starts at 113,300 euros in Germany.
