The 2022 Audi RS7 is a super-high-performance hatchback that’s as audacious as it is luxurious. Puzzled how something so hot and powerful shares a body style with something as dorky and feeble as a Chevy Spark? Well, as with the A7 and S7 variants that the RS7 is based on, Audi bookends these sleek four doors with a hatch for added practicality. However, the RS6 Avant wagon is cheaper and roomier. Still, with haunches, this broad and a twin-turbo V-8 boasting 591 horsepower, getting noticed and going fast are the RS7’s primary objectives.
While its explosive thrust causes passengers to involuntarily cuss, and its sharp handling inspires the driver to smile, the hottest of hatches never feels unruly or raw. Instead, its interior exudes expensiveness, pampering riders with rich trappings and ritzy features. As a result, the premium-priced 2022 RS7 is a rapid expression of both driving enthusiasm and wealth, and it earns a spot on our Editors’ Choice list.
