from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

What it is: The four-seat Audi S7 is a performance variant of Audi’s coupelike four-door hatchback, the A7. A 450-horsepower, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 is standard. The V-8 teams with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and Porsche Panamera.
What’s Special

  • Available sport rear differential
  • Adaptive air suspension with lowered ride height

Here’s info on the regular A7:
What it is: The Audi A7 is a large four-door hatchback conceived along the same lines as BMW’s 5 Series Gran Turismo. It combines a coupelike profile with the comfort of a sedan and the practicality of a station wagon, Audi says. The A7 slots between the A6 and A8 sedans in Audi’s lineup, and competitors include the 5 Series GT and Porsche Panamera.

The A7 now comes only with a supercharged gas V-6 engine. Audi has dropped the turbo-diesel V-6 while it works to resolve an emissions-cheating scandal. Performance variants of the A7 are available as the S7 and RS 7, both of which are powered by turbocharged V-8 engines.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
