2023 Audi RS7: Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, Walkaround, POV and Review

  • by

👋 In todays video we check out the latest generation for the Audi RS7! This is a sleeper sedan that offers so much!!! The exterior styling in my opinion is top notch! The front end is the most bold and aggressive with all the contoured lines and the grill presence! The rest of the exterior has a clean and flowing design all the way to the rear glass leading to the rear end! There are so many different options you can get for this Audi RS7 depending on your budget! This Audi has the 21” wheels which match nicely with the silver! The interior is phenomenal with the leather, gloss black and trim pieces everywhere! The seats have a great design to them with the hexagonal stitching! All the technology is easy to use and laid out well! The virtual cockpit has a ton to go through and is very configurable! I love how Audi puts all this technology into their cars, but also make it simple for anyone to learn quickly! With the Audi RS7 having the coupe like design and being a “hatchback” or what Audi calls, Sportback, it allows this to be very practical having more cargo room for larger items! This would be a great daily driver if you are looking for practicality, performance and space! With a tune and some other aftermarket parts, you can quickly build up even more power from this V8 engine! The Audi RS7 is basically a 5 seater European sedan that is very quick and stylish! It’s not a very loud car by any means, so it would be nice to see the “RS” button open up that exhaust even more to really hear that V8! But aside from that it drives very nice and is refined as you would expect from an Audi!

Hey everyone and welcome to the channel so today we get to check out the 2023 audi rs7 huge shout out to audi greenville for providing the sedan for me today make sure you guys check out their website all that info is down in the description the rs7 that you see behind me is finished off in floret silver metallic with an msrp just over 138 thousand dollars and to

Start off today’s review let’s take a look at what powers this rs7 underneath the hood is the 4-liter twin turbo v8 with the hybrid electric motor this is paired to the 8-speed tiptronic automatic transmission and pumps out 591 horsepower around 6000 rpm and 590 pound-feet of torque as low as 2000 rpm that power sent through the quattro all-wheel drive system

This weighs in right around 4 900 pounds it’ll do 0-60 in as quick as three seconds with a top speed of 190 miles an hour and it has a fuel capacity of 19.3 gallons you’ll expect to see around 4 14 miles per gallon in the city and 21 out on the highway this has a wheelbase of 115.3 inches its overall length is 197.2 it has a width of 76.8 and a height of 56.1

Inches as we move on to the exterior styling now for this rs7 there’s not too many changes for the 23-year model we’re going to start off with the hexagonal grille right in the middle because it has a great design to it the audi badge is chrome there’s also a forward-facing camera just underneath that along with a sensor on both sides those are part of the adaptive

Cruise and all that technology now there’s some parking sensors in the lower section of that grille along with cutouts too to provide a lot of cooling to that twin turbo engine there’s more air inlets and mesh on both sides along with some parking sensors and this even has the adaptive led headlights along with the led drls and turn signals i love the sequential

Design that the turn signals have and they share these same bars with the drl so it’s nice that they’re integrated there’s even another cutout in the very lower section along with a lot more contoured lines for that lower lip and as you can tell with the hexagonal grille all those sharp edges running around it even on the sides of those air inlets just underneath

The headlights and then for this hood very clean lines running down both sides meeting the top section of that grille very nicely so it gives it that aggressive look for this sporty sedan as we make our way to the side now this has the 21 inch by 10 and a half inch wheels with a multi-spoke design to them i love this color definitely a great contrast with this

Exterior silver now this particular model has the nine thousand dollar carbon ceramic option with the red brake calipers they measure in at 16 and a half inches up front just over 14 inches in the rear a massive brake caliper setup for the sedan plenty of horsepower plenty of stopping power at the same time now for these side mirrors they are body colored feature

The integrated turn signal there’s another camera underneath them i’ll show that camera system later the c even has a sunroof too all the window trim is finished off in more of that silver to tie nicely with the wheels and this even has the full adaptive suspension you can raise and lower the vehicle just to make it easier to enter an exit or to give you a little

Bit more height if you’re going over speed bumps and having that sport back design to it it flows nicely all the way to the rear i love this line that starts just above that rear door handle coming through the rear fender all the way to the back tail lights gives it a great design from the side and as we work our way to the rear end this does have a camera right in

The middle it’s just underneath the audi logo rs7 is on that driver’s side now this does have a deployable rear spoiler which will go up at speeds all the parking sensors are right in the middle there’s more of that brush trim running through the lower diffuser just to give it a great look and then there’s the dual exhaust on both sides with the gloss black tips

So there’s a look at the exterior for this rs7 let’s work our way to the cargo space now you can use the button that’s located up underneath the out audi logo if i just double tap the button on the key fob you can do that as well and with that sportback design it gives you a lot more interior space compared to a traditional trunk so if this is your only vehicle it

Is very practical now over on the driver’s side there’s a net for a little bit of storage there’s tie down hooks so you can safely secure items and then underneath the floor if i raise this up you can actually fold this backwards all the way now we have the sub a little bit of storage you probably maybe could fit a spare tire in here if you needed to but there’s

Some other tools and equipment needed for that and that can easily close this up there’s also a 12 volt over on that passenger side and then when you remove this cover and fold the back seats down that gives you a lot more interior space where you could probably fit a bicycle or something like that it definitely provides you with a lot of interior room and then

For this power liftgate the button on the right side will close and lock it the one on the left side will just close it and now we can work our way to these back seats what i love about the r7 is that you can lock and unlock it using the back door handle which makes it really convenient now for this door panel it’s finished off in carbon fiber brushed aluminum

There’s alcantara on the back side and even leather brushed aluminum is on the release handle this has the bangin olufsen sound system and a little bit of storage in the lower section of the door so a very premium feeling interior and that goes along with these napa leather seats rs is nicely embroidered in the top there’s a nice hexagonal pattern running down the

Inserts and now at five foot ten it’s time to hop into the back seats even with that sportback designed for the roof it’s not all that hard to make my way in here and with the front seat set at my height i have plenty of room there’s also a net behind both front seats for added storage two air vents are right in the middle and then there’s a nice lcd screen where

You can go through all the climate controls the heated seats a lot of controls for your backseat passengers there’s even some usbcs and a 12 volt so you can charge electronics now as far as headroom goes like i mentioned with this sportback design my head is just up against the headliner but these are pretty comfortable seats i could definitely ride around town

Maybe out on the highway we have a grab handle here another window behind me there so it gives you a lot of visibility from the back seats as well and then right in the middle if i open up this armrest you’ll see there’s a little bit of storage space on the back section and then there’s two cup holders in the front section if you need to utilize those and this

Middle seat also folds down by itself so if i just pull on that tab underneath the headrest you can fold that one down individually if you need to get some longer items through and you have a passenger on both sides now as far as visibility goes from the back seats like i mentioned earlier with that window just behind the normal window there definitely gives you a

Lot more visibility i love this interior for the back very nice to see now as we move on to the front seats now the door panels finished off just like the rear however there’s the addition of lock and unlock all the memory seating adjustments there’s even the side mirror adjustments which are power folding and heated there’s a release for that rear lift gate along

With more storage space more leather all those materials the front seats are finished off just like the rear with rs badge very nice seed all of the automatic adjustments are down on the side however the front is manual so if i pull on that tab if you need a little bit more leg comfort you can pull that out as needed and then there’s some brushed aluminum on the

Door sill with rs7 and it’s very easy to enter and exit from the front seats now i do have this back in the slowest position so that makes it much easier of course and then the steering wheel is completely covered in perforated leather with a nice design to it i love all the gray stitching the notches on both sides too the rs badge is on the bottom there’s piano

Black along with some more brushed trim now on this right side is bluetooth and voice commands along with volume and tuning there’s even an rs button on this left side you can use all those controls to go through the virtual cockpit and then this is the cruise and adaptive cruise control settings on that stock on the left side let’s fire up this rs7 with my foot

On the brake that button is located down in the center and we can bring this to life foreign and then looking at this virtual cockpit now currently you can see the navigation on the left side attack is right in the middle along with miles per hour and what gear the vehicle is in on the right side is power and torque and then there’s fixed information like the

Engine temperature and then the fuel gauge now to go through all that other information using these controls we’re currently it’s showing the navigation if i scroll over now we can look at your bluetooth when you have that paired along with music and then there’s a few more settings to go into like driver assistance you can pull up your long and short-term memory

Along with your consumption and then look at the date and the time now if you want to view this in full screen so you’re looking at the navigation and you’d like to view that simply click on that button and now we have that in full screen or you can even zoom in and zoom out so if you’re going somewhere and you’d like to have the map front and center you can easily

Do that now you can also look at all this other information and it will pull up your attack as well as your miles per hour on each side of that screen and then going back to the nav they will minimize in the lower sections there so it’s really nice to see that now being the rs7 we do have the rs button so if i push on that once this gauge cluster will change again

To where you can see the attack on both sides of the miles per hour as well as what gear you’re in and almost like a drag strip version so it’s nice to see that now if you hold on this button again there’s the rs2 which turns off the traction control and then if i go back to rs1 you can see the g-force meter on that left side and you can still go through all that

Other information so if you’d like to have that sportier gauge cluster setup really cool to see that you can also look at your tire pressure as well as the temperature of the tires too and then as we move on to the left side of the steering wheel down in the lower section is a little compartment where you can place some items if you need to there’s some piano

Black brushed aluminum more of the carbon fiber surrounding all the headlight adjustments there’s one air vent the entire dash is finished off in leather which is a nice touch to see and this even has the heads up display it might be a little hard to see right now but in the rs setting the attack is running across the top there’s the oil temperature as well as

Miles per hour and if i take it out of the rs setting it’ll simply just show miles per hour as well as the lane keeping assist right in the middle there are two air vents leading all the way over to the air vent on the passenger side there’s more carbon fiber and brushed aluminum and it surrounds the center infotainment system where currently you can see all these

Icons like radio and media there’s also phone navigation if i go into vehicle now you can go through the drive select and go through comfort auto and dynamic as well as being able to raise and lower this vehicle you can adjust your rs1 and rs2 settings and you’ll see them and pop up in that center gauge cluster there if we go back we can go into the rs monitor or

You can look at oil temperature you have your sport differential fluids brake rotors you can monitor the temperatures look at the geforce meter in a larger screen as well as your tire pressure which is great to see there’s also lighting and visibility you can go into the seats there’s some favorites too and then back on the home screen there’s a few more icons that

You can go through on that right side and then over on the left side you have that triple split design with navigation phone and media so you can look at all that on one screen there’s also the serious music you can go into your music when you have your phone paired as well as being able to pull up your phone when you have that connected and then the last one is

Nav so if your passengers need to see the navigation as well you can quickly pull that up on that center screen and then below that we have a slightly smaller screen that has a lot more information to go through basically all of your climates however there is a row just above that we have the engine start stop feature there’s also the parallel parking so you can

Push on that and that will aid you in parking if i push on all those squares you can pull up presets so you can put in your home address or other addresses that you frequently go to there’s the garage door buttons right next to that so you can program those as needed we have the rear spoiler so you can deploy that or put it down just depending on how you’d like to

Have it and then the last button there you can turn that screen off if you’d like to the one just to the left of that is for the heads up display so you can configure that as needed but getting back to all these climate adjustments now if i turn this on you can see the fan speed where you’d like the air to go there’s also the temperature this even has heated and

Ventilated seeds there’s these sinking controls right in the middle if i click on those three buttons now you can adjust the heated steering wheel along with the rear climate adjustments so you can control that from the front if you need to and then just underneath that is a shortcut to the driving mode so as i already showed you can quickly get to those there’s

Traction control as well as the hazards and a few defrosters right next to that now there’s the engine start stop button which i already showed and then we have a shortcut to the camera system so currently it’s showing the forward-facing camera along with the top down view and then there’s so many different angles just depending on what you need to see and how you

Are driving especially in parking lot situations this is going to be very beneficial there’s also a shortcut to the parallel parking so you can quickly get to that so i really like the camera system there’s even the 3d view where you can click on these presets to see exactly what is around this vehicle definitely gives you the visibility that you need to the left

Of that if i push on this button is another shortcut to the parallel parking and then the one on the right is for the driver assistance so you can have that on maximum individual or basic depending on your needs there’s power volume for the radio on that far side and then there’s two cup holders with a 12 volt and a little bit of storage you can place the key fob

Right in the middle if you’d like to and then moving on to the leather wrap shifter the releases on this left side if i push this forwards that is actually for reverse so you’ll see that appear i can go all the way into drive even even pop it over into the manual setting you can shift using the shifter or the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that have a

Nice design to them and then park is simply just by pushing on the p you’ll see behind that is the electronic parking brake there’s more brushed aluminum and leather for the center armrest if i open this up this reveals the wireless charging pad two auxiliaries and a little bit of storage so you could place items there if you need to you can actually slide this

Forwards and backwards too just depending on your style and then over on the passenger side is the glove box with plenty of room for all that information we’ll take one last look at these seeds which have a nice design to them and as i mentioned this does have a sunroof that adjustment is in the middle for the sun shade as well as being able to open up the sunroof

All the way so that is nice to have there’s also the touch sensitive dome lights on each side and a call button on the back as we get behind the wheel now for this 23 audi rs7 this is probably one of my favorite family style sedans that has that sportback design to it it also has plenty of power paired with that all-wheel drive system you definitely don’t have

To worry about getting all that power sent through the tires and to get you up and moving now i had a friend who owned an rs7 and i think has made right around 700 horsepower to the wheels so right under 600 from the factory is pretty awesome to see but the tuning potential for the rs7 if you have a family you need this practicality but you also want to do this

And that was just in a normal mode i haven’t put it into the rs setting yet so much fun and taking turns like that even with the adaptive suspension it handles well this is a performance oriented family style vehicle that i could definitely get on board with and aside from the performance audi is just known for having a very nice interior especially for the price

Point too carbon ceramics do a good job coming around that turn you almost forget that you’re in a four-door vehicle i mean i can see the the back arches like i mentioned earlier as far as visibility goes now i can easily see over this left shoulder plenty of glass in all directions and with it in the rs setting i am surprised that it doesn’t get much louder

In the rs setting i think it would be cool to see more of an active style exhaust to it because when you put it from dynamic even into a comfort or individual not much of a change as you heard in the exhaust revs rs doesn’t really change it that much so i would like to see a little bit more of a loud exhaust if you want that option you can shut it off or you can

Turn it on which i think would be really cool to see and as we switch over to the pov angle you can see what it’s like to be behind the wheel of this rs7 so as we come around this turn we can do another acceleration about quarter throttle nothing too crazy for today’s video but from experience i know that these can be super quick i’ll link down in the description

The video to the 700 wheel horsepower rs7 that my friend had we made a video on so if you’d like to see really ripping on it check out that video but even going around turns like that at a normal rate of speed the handling on this car is incredible for the weight of it for the size of it you really can’t tell that it’s as big as it looks and then a quick glance

At visibility from the driver’s seat over my right shoulder i can easily see out of that side and then a glance over my left shoulder plenty of glass which is of course great but i think that’s going to wrap it up for my walk around review and test drive getting behind the wheel of this 2023 audi rs7 once again huge shout out to audi greenville for providing this

Sleeper style sportback for me today make sure you check out their website all that info is down in the description and if you enjoyed today’s video make sure you give it a huge thumbs up and consider smashing that subscribe button so you don’t miss out on our daily uploads i will see you all in the next video
