Audi India has teased the launch of the 2020 Audi RS 7 Sportback four-door coupe in India. This is the second generation of the RS7 which debuted at the Frankfurt Motorshow last year. A date for this car's launch has not been revealed yet, but we expect it to be in the early part of July.

The Audi RS 7 uses a 4.0-litre V8 engine with 600PS and 800 Nm. The 100kmph from standstill comes in 3.6 seconds. The top speed has been electronically limited to 250kmph, however, opting the Dynamic package will allow you to take the RS7 Sportback up to 285kmph. And the Dynamic Plus package unlocks the car up to 305 kmph. The Quattro AWD comes as standard as does an eight-speed auto. The RS 7 also gets a 48V mild-hybrid system that enables gliding with the engine switched off, fast restart and an extended stop/start range.

The new-gen RS 7 gets all the latest of Audi's design and tech. The car is larger than the outgoing model, and features elements like the wide front-grille, the sharply-cut headlamps, and the full-width rear lighting. There are numerous RS-specific touches all around with the extendable rear spoiler, 21/22-inch alloys, exhaust etc. Styling packages are further available.

The interiors are also entirely new, with the crisp, horizontal look and the dual-screen haptic feedback set-up. The interiors also get RS contrasting materials and stitching and more supportive seats.

Mechanically, the RS7 gets standard RS adaptive air suspension, optional dynamic ride control, all-wheel steering, sport differential and a ten-piston RS ceramic brake system.

The new RS7 is another addition to Audi India's new strategy focused on the highest reaches of the luxury car market. It follows other range toppers like the Audi A8L and the Audi Q8. This is also the first in the heavy onslaught of RS models that are expected from the carmaker.

The Audi RS7 will compete with the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door and the BMW M8.
