By: Jyoti on 25 april 2015
Audi RS7 shares the same platform and design features as Audi A7 but there are some points of differences between the two. The front grille sported by Audi RS7 is larger in size than on Audi A7. Audi RS7 gets features like bigger wheels, matte silver wing mirrors, rear spoiler, large disc brake for fade-free braking and low profile tyre. The badging on Audi RS7 is more prominent on Audi A7 than on RS7. Moreover, the colour choices offered on RS7 are more sportier while that offered on A7 are more classier.
Audi RS7 is a Sportsback while the A7 is a sedan and this makes the major difference between these vehicles. RS7 features a large windscreen integrated with a couple of rain sensing wipers. Its front consists of luminous headlight cluster, LED daytime running lights and hexagonal shaped radiator grille with chrome surround and perforated mesh. Its side and rear profiles are equally beautiful. Audi A7 comes with a rigid body structure with many styling features. A lot of striking features including a fetching headlight cluster with a sleek design confer it a masculine stance. Its side profile has some sporty lines and the rear is carved out brilliantly to make it a visual treat.
The new Audi RS7 is the updated version of its high performance luxury sedan Audi A7. It has redesigned bumper, stylish honey combed single frame front grille to make it more aggressive, updated sporty LED head lamps with option of Matrix LED which comes in its elder sibling Audi A8. Overall, the car is more stylish, sporty and aggressive if we compare it with Audi A7.
With the new Audi RS7 you will get also the new body color options like Mythos Black, Glacier White, Floret Silver and Sepang Blue. The car has received so many updations at its exteriors as well as interiors. The honeycomb single frame front grille gives eye catching look. Its bumper is also redesigned with air inlets on both sides. The MMI system of the car is also got updated with graphics chip from Nvidia.
Audi RS7 is a sports car with a price tag of 1.35 (ex-showroom price Delhi) crore whereas A7 is a sedan with a price of 65 lakh. Being a sports car, RS7 has a larger hexagonal front grill with bolder badge, larger wheels, rear spoiler, silver wing mirrors and a large windscreen while A7 is more of a descent car with beautifully carved designs on sides and rear body. As mentioned by Aniket in previous answer, color options for RS7 are also sporty which enhances its looks as sports car.
Audi RS7 is more advanced vehicle as compare to Audi A7. It’s a sportback model loaded with highly advanced features and power by the very powerful 4.0 Liter, 3993cc, V8 TFSI petrol engine which generates 560 bhp of maximum power with 700 Nm of maximum torque. It can reach 100 kmph speed from standstill in just 3.5 seconds and the top speed of the vehicle is 280 kmph. No doubt, Audi RS7 has more powerful and high performing engine as compare to previous Audi A7.
No doubt, Audi RS7 is more advanced than previous Audi A7. I would like to add one more innovative feature of Audi RS7 that is its sports suspension system with dynamic ride control option. The suspension system can be adjusted in 3 stages – Auto, Comfort, or Dynamic. You can control it through Audi Drive Select control system.
One more innovative and unique feature of Audi RS7 is its four zone automatic air conditioning system which electronically regulates air flow, temperature and air distribution. This feature was earlier comes in Audi A8 only but now Audi has started offering this feature with Audi RS7 also. It offers separate temperature control for driver, front passenger and rear passengers.
