Audi launched the sportier version of the A7 , known as S7, for the 2013 model year in the U.S., giving the quirky four-door a 420-horsepower V-8 to play with after just one year on the market. In 2014, the S7 received mild updates that included blind-spot warning, power folding mirrors and a stunning Black Optics package. Heading into the 2015 model year, the S7 is set for even more updates, as Audi is giving the model a facelift that includes new bumpers, tailpipes, headlights, and a revised Singleframe grille. Also included is an extra 30 horsepower over the 2014 model.
With Audi and BMW locked in a see-saw battle for the lead in luxury car sales in 2014, the German brand is doing all it can to end the year at No. 1. This includes a revamp of its low-volume A7 lineup, which includes the S7. U.S. sales of the entire A7 line were up 7.1 percent at the end of April 2014, and this redesign should help keep that pattern.
