The new Audi RS7 Sportback marks the model's second generation and is more unique than ever before. At the 2019 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Audi Sport GmbH presented the RS7 Sportback as a wide-bodied five-seater for the first time, also showcasing the improved performance and efficiency delivered by a mild hybrid system. The Audi RS7 Sportback will be arriving at dealerships in Germany and other European countries in the end of 2019. The new Audi RS7 Sportback sits low to the ground. The flared wheel arches emphasize the relentlessly sporty nature of the high-performance model from Audi Sport. The extreme width is no optical illusion - at 1,950 millimeters (76.8 inches) at the front fenders, the tape measure has to stretch an extra 40 millimeters (1.6 inches) or so over the Audi A7 Sportback. The new RS7 Sportback shares the coupé-like lines of the base model's body, but only in four areas: the hood, the roof, the front doors and the tailgate. The RS-specific exterior design gives the 5,009-millimeter (197.2-inch) grand tourer a character all of its own.
