Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The Audi A7 family hasn’t been tested by Euro NCAP at the time of writing but with a high-tech body constructed from a mix of aluminium and steel Audi RS7 safety credentials can still be considered to be high.

There’s a raft of safety kit available, including Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses radar technology to prevent the car from getting too close to vehicles ahead, and Active Lane Assist, which can make minute adjustments to the steering to prevent the car from straying out of lane unintentionally.

Also available is a night vision camera system, which displays an image of the road ahead on the car’s instrument panel, helping the driver spot pedestrians near the road in advance.

Audi RS7 practicality is more or less identical to that of the A7 it’s based on.

With four doors and a two-seat rear bench the car can carry four adults in comfort (and get them to places very quickly). Since the cabin is both very wide and very long, there is plenty of leg and shoulder room for front and rear occupants although the sloping roofline means taller rear passengers might feel a little squashed.

For the same reason the boot is deep but quite shallow in height, meaning carrying tall items could be a challenge. Helpfully, the hatchback tailgate opens electrically as standard although it operates at quite a leisurely speed.

Like the A7, folding the rear seats down makes for a flat loading area and it could easily accomodate a couple of golf bags.
