The Audi S7 comes standard with many of the features from higher spec A7's such as the four-zone climate control, Audi's virtual cockpit and the Bang & Olufsen sound system. It differs from the A7 in that it's much better at being a sports car. Its unique suspension settings mean the car is lower and stiffer than the A7, with correspondingly better handling. Meanwhile, all the power from the slightly smaller, but far more turbocharged engine allows the S7 to have impressive acceleration for a vehicle of its size.

Audi offers an array packages for the A7, including a Black Optic Package, S-Line Package, Convenience Package, Executive Package and Luxury Package.
