2020 Audi S7 Sportback TDI

Apr 18, 2019

Audi has made it a point to upgrade a number of their most recognizable vehicles for the upcoming year, and in the same vein as the manufacturer’s sleek new S6, the S7 will also forgo its V8 powerplant for two fewer cylinders — although, that might not be such a bad thing.

Audi’s 2020 S7 Sportback TDI will inherit the same twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 that has made its way into the manufacturer’s other platforms — a clear deviation from the brand’s V8 engine. Two fewer cylinders doesn’t result in a loss of power, however. A 48-volt mild hybrid system and electric supercharger help to kick the vehicle into high gear, retaining the same 450 horsepower as its earlier iteration, but with more torque, overall — nearly 36 lb-ft more, to be exact. Aside from the vehicle’s newly acquired 443 lb-ft of torque, the S7 Sportback TDI also features some new quality-of-life upgrades. Adaptive dampers, torque vectoring, a lowered suspension, and four-wheel steering are all tacked onto the mischevious new platform. Details on pricing have yet to be released, but they should drop soon — the TDI is slated to release at the end of 2019.
