Audi has launched the stylish A7 Sportback in India. This Sportback is more of an image statement for Audi than a practical option as a luxury saloon. The A7 will be available with two engine options; a 3.0-litre TDi V6 diesel motor churning out 245bhp and 50.98kgm of torque from 1400rpm, and a 3.0-litre TFSi petrol motor.
The design overall resembles the flagship Audi A8 sedan but has a distinctive for door coupe styling. The interior is loaded with acres of leather, wood and brushed aluminum combined with a pop-up navigation system screen.
Both the 3.0-litre diesel and 3.0-litre petrol variants are available for Rs. 64 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. The fully loaded A7 will cost around Rs. 85 lakh. The RS5 too makes its entry into the Indian market beefing up Audi's performance image. The RS5 Coupe gets a reworked version of the 4.2-litre V8 motor from the R8, with an increase in power output which is now 444bhp at 8250rpm, while developing a max torque of 43.96kgm at 4000rpm. Priced at Rs. 76 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi, only about 30 RS5 Coupes will make it to India.
