Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Despite its sporty and intimate feel inside, the front of the RS7 has enough leg room for six-footers and head room is okay unless you’re extremely tall. The interior is plenty wide enough as well, and there’s loads of storage space.

Most will find it easy enough to get and out of the rear seats, and the RS7 offers more than enough head and leg room for two tall adults. Indeed, only the Porsche Panamera can rival it for roominess in the rear, with the Porsche Taycan and BMW M8 Gran Coupé both feeling more pinched. You will struggle to get three passengers abreast in the back, though, unless they’re all kids.

How about the RS7’s boot? Well, there’s a wide-opening tailgate – powered as standard – so it’s a breeze to load even very bulky items, including your golf clubs. In our tests it could take up to eight carry-on suitcases, which is one more than a Mercedes-AMG GT 4dr and two more than a Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo (that’s the estate version, by the way) can carry. 

If you need even more room, you’ll find it handy that 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats come as standard, allowing you to fit any longer loads as required.
