The 3.0 TFSI quattro develops a hefty 228 kW (310 hp). It is equipped with an innovative mechanical turbocharging system with intercooler, which turns the 6-cylinder engine into a compact powerplant - with moderate fuel consumption. The engine is impressive not only for its peak torque of 440 Nm, but also its torque curve: at least 90 per cent is available across a speed range of 2,900 rpm to 4,500 rpm. Thanks to its highly spontaneous response and exceptional power delivery across the entire speed range, the 6-cylinder engine also permits a particularly dynamic driving style. The Audi A7 Sportback accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds and still has abundant power reserves beyond this mark.
