Audi India has launched the 2015 RS7 Facelift at a sticker price of Rs. 1.4 Crores (Ex. Showroom) in the country. New Audi RS7 Facelift gets several cosmetic changes at the outside, while the interior is also updated. There are no mechanical changes in the 2015 RS7 sportscar and it continues to carry the engine and transmission from its predecessor.
Talking about the cosmetic changes, the Audi RS7 facelift flaunts a redesigned bumper with a restyled grille at the front fascia. Moreover, there are revamped LED headlamps on offer as standard, while Matrix-LED headlamps are available as an optional feature. The RS7 facelift sits at all-new alloy wheels, while the older tail-lamp cluster has also been phased out in favour of a new LED lamp unit. Inside the cabin, it boasts new air conditioner vents and paddle shifters. Also, the instrument cluster is tweaked a bit to make it appear contemporary. There is an updated Multi Media Interface Plus infotainment system with new Nvidia graphics processor, albeit as an optional feature in the new RS7.
Under the hood, the Audi RS facelift has the same 4.0L V8 turbocharged petrol engine, which used to power the preceding model. It churns out a massive power of 552bhp, while linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Power is being disbursed evenly to all the four wheels via Audi’s Torsen (torque sensing) four-wheel drive system. Audi RS7 accelerates from 0-100kmph in mere 3.9 seconds, while clocking an electronically limited top speed of 255kmph. The top speed can be further extended upto 280kmph or 305kmph by subscribing to the 'Dynamic package'.
