Running costs

As you might expect with a high-performance four-door coupe, Audi S7 running costs are pretty high. With a claimed average fuel economy of 27.4mpg, which is likely to drop well below this once you start putting your foot down, visits to the fuel garage are likely to be frequent. Then there’s the matter of insurance, which is likely to be high. Labour rates at Audi garages are usually quite pricey so expect high service and maintenance bills.

Emissions summary

As with the running costs of the car, Audi S7 emissions are fairly high. At 225g/km, CO2 emissions are acceptable for this type of car but you still fall in to the top band for road tax. You have to face the fact that you will see a fairly sizeable amount of money disappear from your bank for the first year, while subsequent years are still rather high.

If you’re considering buying an Audi S7, however, road tax costs are unlikely to be at the top of your agenda.
