Overview: At its heart, the 2017 Audi S7 is a 450-hp, all-wheel-drive sedan that piles on amenities, stunning finishes, and world-class construction to make it a top-drawer executive express. And crowning it all is a design that, despite its age, remains a hallmark for beauty and function not just among Audis but among all luxury cars.
The S7 sits below only the RS7 in Audi’s mid-size lineup, and there’s just one powertrain available: a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 bolted to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. All-wheel drive and an adaptive suspension are standard. The S7 substitutes a sloping rear roofline and a hatchback liftgate in place of the S6 sedan’s more traditional three-box design and trunklid. The compromise, naturally, is tighter rear-passenger headroom and only four seatbelts, while the benefits are those stunning good looks and a large, easily accessed cargo space that gets even more practical with the rear seats folded.
Among the S7’s standout features are its intuitive MMI interface that controls audio, navigation, HVAC, and phone functionality, plus an interior finished with opulent leather, wood inlays, and microsuede.
What’s New: The S7 sees few notable changes for 2017. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are now standard. The Premium Plus trim level adds a Bose surround-sound system and a new 19-inch wheel design. Audi Connect becomes standard, and it adds 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity. Larger 20- and 21-inch wheels are available. A new optional Driver Assist package brings adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. Red brake calipers are available with the Sport package.
What We Like: Although the S7’s fastback roofline gives some indication of this car’s dynamic merit, this large hatchback is not easily sniffed out by those who notice performance hardware. And yet the last version we tested, a 2016 model with the same power and torque ratings, hit 60 mph from rest in 3.9 seconds, only 0.5 second behind outrageous dedicated performance cars such as the 650-hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We like MMI’s ease of use, as well as the decidedly upscale look of the cabin materials. Combine this car’s talents with its uncommon packaging and knockout styling, and the S7 secures itself a unique spot among performance cars.
What We Don’t Like: There’s the obvious: If you need to regularly haul four adults, a conventional sedan like the S6 will be a better choice. However, if your kids are small enough to fit comfortably in the back, then the S7’s liftback packaging remains appealing. Although the S7 can display a Google Map in its instrument cluster, it lacks the full 12.3-inch high-resolution Virtual Cockpit display found in other Audis. That is reflective of an overall interior aesthetic that’s behind those of the most recent Audis. Some interior items are last-generation wares, but there’s still strong, usable, and good-looking design and function here.
Verdict: An aging beauty is still a beauty.

The frameless doors of the A7 and the sloped roof made the A7 Sportback look like a coupe, and in the Audi philosophy there is no reason to build a coupe if you don't put a powerful engine under the hood. That's what they did with the good-looking A7 when it became an S7.
The sleek lines of the vehicle form an aerodynamic shape, uninterrupted from hood to the taillights. On the tailgate, there is a thin line where the rear spoiler is hidden flush to the trunk lid. As usual for any S vehicle, the outside mirrors and the front grille are silver, regardless of the color of the car.
Inside the S7 there are four seats available and those for the front passengers are bucket seats signed by Recaro. In the rear, the middle seat has been removed for the benefit of the other two passengers who can comfortably seat there.
From the technical point of view, the engine is the same as in the Bentley Continental GT V8. It has the twin turbochargers between the engine banks to cut the turbo-lag. The transmission is a 7-speed dual-clutch system and it sends the power to all four wheels. For the suspension, an optional air system is available.

Audi S7 Expert Review
New For 2017:
The 2017 Audi S7 gets some updated exterior bits and an improved infotainment system. A new Premium Plus trim level is available for 2017 as are new design and wheel options that include a new 20" wheel design, new 21-inch titanium wheels with the black optic package and red front and rear brake calipers available on the S7 Sport package.
The 2017 Audi S7 is a higher-performance version of the Audi A7 midsize, four-seat, all-wheel-drive luxury hatchback. Above the A7 and S7 is the ridiculously powerful RS 7. In price, the S7 sits between the S6 and S8 sedans. The A7 is available with five seats, but the A7 Competition, S7, and RS 7 all stick with a four-seat configuration.
In the Audi S7, a turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine makes 450 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a Audi's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The RS 7 gets the same V-8 but an eight-speed automatic transmission instead. At the top of the line is the RS 7 performance model which puts out 605 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque for 2017 and comes standard with Audi ceramic brakes, dynamic ride control suspension, standard sport exhaust. The 2017 S7 is EPA rated at 17/27 mpg city/highway, with the RS 7 at 15/25 mpg. The 2017 Audi S7 gets updated infotainment that includes support for Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
The 2017 Audi S7 will come in two available packages, the Premium Plus and higher level Prestige trim. At the Prestige level buyers will get different wheels and soft close doors.
Although the Audi S7 hauls only four people, the hatchback body style leaves more than enough room for luggage and golf bags in the trunk.
Driver and front passenger dual-stage airbags, front thorax side airbags, knee airbags and side curtain airbags are standard on the 2017 Audi S7.
The Driver Assistance package gets you top and corner view cameras, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, active lane assist, and Audi Pre Sense. The Audi Pre Sense system melds forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking to reduce the severity of accidents. The night vision system that helps detect pedestrians and animals up to 300 feet ahead of the car is also optionally available in the Audi S7.
What We Think:
We drove the 2016 S7 and had lots of good things to say about it. While the driving experience hadn't changed much from the 2015 model, the acceleration is still impressive as is the accompanying fuel efficiency. The variable dynamic steering system that was included in the Sport package on our test car was "mostly responsive," though we thought it was somewhat unpredictable on initial turn in. Though the big V-8 hangs out there in the front, we were happy with how relatively neutral the car felt in sharp turns thanks in a large part to the torque-vectoring rear differential of the Sport package.
Overall we think the Audi S7 is a good buy. It's definitely one of the most attractive cars in Audi's lineup, and it offers a more functional interior than the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe or the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Sveta looked up at me. She slipped off Dima's penis and sat on the couch. I immediately noticed that Dima's penis is not large in length, but plump. Sveta's phone rang, she got up from the sofa and walked naked across the room for the phone. Dima sat down on the sofa, throwing one leg over the other, obviously he was ashamed of me.

We had no more adventures that late evening, and a few minutes. Before midnight we said goodbye at the door of Nina's apartment. She was able to put her clothes and hair in relative order, despite the fact that I was more in the way. Than helping her. Finally we merged into a long kiss.
