The decision to buy a beautiful, high-performance luxury car like the 2015 Audi S7 is one that might be a little hard from a purely logical standpoint. After all, the S7’s little brother, the A7, is an excellent choice with a lot of the same virtues, and it costs considerably less. Why spend the extra money? The simple answer is power — lots of power. With 420 horses on tap, the S7’s V8 is one of the most satisfying motors in the market. Ladies and gentlemen, let the rationalization begin.
To be fair, there’s other stuff to love about the 2015 S7, including respectable fuel economy and a nimble, athletic feel around corners that coexists with exemplary ride quality. Credit for the latter goes in part to the brilliant adaptive air suspension, which cast a spell on us with its almost eerie balance and smoothness. Moreover, the S7’s interior is as sumptuous as they come, with superb materials and technology features.
