The Audi S7 Sportback is the flagship version of the German brand's five-door executive coupe, the Audi A7 Sportback. It demonstrates what Audi's S programme is all about, namely taking their entire line-up and turning up the power to 11.
Almost everything you see once you're nestled into the cockpit - such as a SIM card slot for full WiFi connectivity, sat nav powered by Google Maps and the option heads-up display - replicates what we've already seen in the likes of the Audi A7 Sportback and the Audi A6.
Audi S7 Sportback: Tech
The sum of the Audi S7's tech smarts converge in the main Bluetooth enabled multimedia unit - the MMI (Multimedia Interface) Navigation.
It was surprisingly responsive and easy to use, largely due to the position of the touchpad in the left-hand-drive model being perfect for a right hander. It'll be interesting to see if that remains the case for right handers in a right-hand drive, where you'll be called upon to enter text with your non-writing digits.
Audi S7 Sportback: Audio tech
Another highlight of the in-car experience is the ability to piggyback the car's WiFi hotspot to stream music from apps like Spotify via Bluetooth to the S7's 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, kicking out your favourite sounds in 1,300 watts glory.
Audi S7 Sportback: Performance
The S7 Sportback carries a 4.0-liter TFSI twin turbo V8 engine that produces an output of 420 horsepower, 405.66 lb/ft of torque and does 0-62 mph in just 4.7 seconds.
Audi S7 Sportback: Verdict
The Audi S7 is a good looking car outside and inside. From a tech-lover's perspective there's no escaping the fact that this car is smart.
