2018 Audi A7 Engineering

A great deal of science goes into stirring emotions.
Renowned Audi driving dynamics can inspire you to seek the scenic route home. Behind every curve you carve or passing maneuver you make are countless hours of research and testing. Numbers and measurements or steel and exotic materials may not say much on their own, but when combined, they speak volumes about performance.

Eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission

Engineered to deliver relaxed cruising and respond quickly to your input, the eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission has a wide range of gears to help keep the engine at its optimal speed. Drivers can select gears with shift paddles behind the steering wheel or with the gear selector when Sport mode is selected.

Audi drive select—Comfort

Comfort mode favors a softer suspension and boosted steering power assistance that is ideal for long-distance travel.

Audi drive select—Auto

Auto mode provides the most balanced engine and chassis response.

Audi drive select—Dynamic

Dynamic mode provides the best available engine and chassis settings for performance driving conditions.[1] The suspension [3] is optimized for handling and body control, the steering is heavier for a more direct feel, and the shift pattern is tuned for immediate response.

2018 Audi S7 Engineering

Blur the lines with a sharp focus on performance.
It’s not just the 450 hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter TFSI® V8 engine that will grab hold of your attention. It’s also the manner in which the seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive transfers the power—plus how quickly the Sport-tuned Audi adaptive air suspension can react to enhance stability through the turns. When the lines become a blur, the engineers consider their job well done.

Seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission

With one clutch for odd-numbered gears and another for even-numbered gears, the seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission shifts in just milliseconds. In Sport mode, the driver can select gears via paddle shifters behind the steering wheel or with the gear selector.

Audi adaptive air suspension

Designed for both cruising comfort and dynamic handling, Audi adaptive air suspension helps absorb bumps and maintain ideal ride height including speed-dependent lowering of the body.

Available dynamic steering

Available on the Audi S7, dynamic steering uses a variable ratio that adjusts according to vehicle speed and Audi drive select mode. As the steering ratio changes, dynamic steering can help improve straight-line stability at highway speeds and improve steering precision through the corners.[1]
