The Audi RS7 Sportback is very much a car that’s capable of showing you what’s possible, in terms of speed and cornerning, thanks to its technology and battery of stability systems.

For many buyers this will be ideal; they will be looking for a stylish and premium-looking car that’s capable of effortlessly and rapidly transporting its occupants and luggage over vast tracts of road.

Some may find the RS7 somewhat disingenuous, however, with its falsified feedback, desire to be left in automatic mode and continual (although unobtrusive) interference - and a little off-putting as a result. It fails to offer the same degree of engagement and communication that rivals such as the Porsche Panamera deliver, and while its engineering is first-rate the interior and general finish lags behind that of its rival.
