Quattro AWD comes as standard along with some performance upgrades like four-wheel steering, adaptive dampers, torque vectoring, and a lowered suspension. The 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission is no joke and helps the car to accelerate from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds and a quarter-mile of 12.5 seconds.

The 2022 Audi S7 Sportback is quite impressive when it comes to performance stats. The only disadvantage is its weight which is a bit on the heavier side. The Mercedes AMG CLS 53 even being on the less expensive side wins the game in the 0-60 mph race. The 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S comes close to the Audi in terms of performance stats on paper but in terms of handling Panamera takes the lead. 

How does the 2022 Audi S7 Sportback handle?

Despite its massive size the 2022 Audi S7 Sportback is incredible in corners. You just need to bury your right foot down and the car will do its thing. The adaptive air suspension system helps in keeping the car flat while cruising around. 

Nevertheless, the 2022 S7 Sportback will woo the driver with its breathtaking performance along with excellent handling. The brakes are impressive and will help to stop the car immediately. The overall combination works fine and makes the car close to perfect.

2022 Audi S7 Fuel Economy

It is not wise to expect an outstanding gas mileage from a sports sedan. However, the 2022 Audi S7 Sportback does a decent job in this department. It provides roughly around 18/28/22 mpg on city/highway/combined. It has a 19.3-gallon fuel tank which will be enough to ride 424 miles between each fillup.

2022 Audi S7 Interior

 The interior of the S7 Sportback looks like a typical Audi. The interior of the car is easily recognizable as it matches with most of the other cars from the brand. The interior is made with upscale materials. The space in the front is sufficient so taller folks won’t find any issues. The dashboard design is similar to that in the A7 and is covered in soft-touch material. All the AC vents and the control buttons are finished in chrome accents. Some small bits of wooden trims here and there make it more premium. The steering wheel is very light and smooth.
