Moscow Live – 2015 Audi A7 & RS7 (facelifts and India-bound)
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The recently unveiled 2015 Audi A7 and the Audi RS7 are being showcased at the 2014 Moscow International Auto Salon (2014 Moscow Motor Show) today.
The refreshed fastback receives minor styling upgrades like a revised grille with more accentuated edges, redesigned headlamps with LED Matrix elements, revised bumpers, new alloy wheels and additional exterior color options.
Inside, subtle upgrades have been given to the instrument console, paddle shifters and the AC flow control. The car also gets the latest generation of the MMI multimedia system.
Powering the 2015 A7’s are five Euro 6 engines – two petrol and three diesel. The power output ranges from 218 PS to 333 PS. The 2015 Audi RS7 retains its 560 bhp 4-litre V8 TwinTurbo petrol motor.
An 8-speed transmission sends power to all the wheels via a rear-biased Quattro all wheel drive system. The engine features Cylinder On Demand (COD) technology which switches off cylinders during light load conditions.
The refreshed duo would be launched in India next year.
