Audi RS7 Sportback review – interior and tech

Susceptible to Audi’s recent lapse in interior design and quality, the RS7’s interior is fine, but no longer the highlight it once was

Evo rating

The interior is typical contemporary Audi – all sharp lines, glossy surfaces and solid build. While it may share an awful lot with far less expensive A6 and A7 derivatives, its slick tech integration and overall build quality are strong enough to not be an overriding problem. 

There is one caveat with this though, as while all UK cars come with soft nappa leather seat trim as standard, the rest of the materials inside are all fairly rough, making the minimalist vibe of the cabin edge into stark lifelessness. Invest in the optional leather package that spreads across the doors and dash and things improve markedly, even if it’s only an improvement in perceived quality.

The tech is typical big-Audi fare, with the twin-screen set-up working for some and not for others. With a bit of familiarity the system is clear and responsive enough to become second nature, and generally is able to swallow complicated tech features without making the system feel bewildering to work with.
