Audi launched the new 2015 Audi RS 7 Sportback in India at Rs1,40,20,750 (ex-showroom Mumbai and Delhi). The Audi RS 7 Sportback was unveiled by Joe King, Head, Audi India and is available at all Audi dealerships across India.
The RS 7 Sportback, for the first time, comes with Audi Matrix LED headlamps. The LED headlamp cluster alters the high beam on a real time basis so that it does not blind the oncoming traffic and the vehicle in the front. The RS 7 also includes integrated dynamic turn signals on the front and the rear, as well as new tail lights design.
The RS 7 Sportback's new hybrid aluminum design makes it weigh roughly 15 per cent lighter than a comparable all-steel body, thanks to Audi’s lightweight construction technology.
The RS7 continues to be powered by the same 4.0-litre V8 Bi-Turbo TFSI unit, which produces 552 bhp and 700 Nm of torque. The powerplant is mated with 8-speed automatic transmission and uses Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.
At the launch, Joe King, Head, Audi India, said, "Embodying our philosophy of “Vorsprung durch Technik”, the Audi RS 7 Sportback is Audi’s superlative illustration of sportiness, progressiveness and sophistication -- combining the practicality of a large, five-door Sportback with strengths and fun of a sportscar." He added, "The combination of a powerful four?litre V8 engine with cylinder on demand technology, quattro drive and intelligent lightweight design makes the Audi RS 7 Sportback an outstanding piece of sports equipment for our discerning customers in India, who desire a dynamic, yet efficient driving experience."
