Audi has announced that the 2020 S7 will be powered by a new 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged TFSI V6 engine, which will generate 450ps and 600Nm of torque.
The S7’s new V6 will power the car from 0-97km/h in 4.5 seconds, and features a 48V electric compressor that provides low-end torque. The standard 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission works in tandem with the electric compressor to help eliminate turbo lag and provide rapid throttle response. The addition of the compressor gives the new S7 a wider range of torque than the preceding model’s powertrain.
An available S sport package also adds dynamic all-wheel steering and quattro differential and will, the German OEM claims, provide increased maneuverability at all speeds and enhanced driving dynamics. The S sport package also adds sport exhaust and red brake calipers.
