Both get an exclusive Arrow Gray body color.
When Audi revealed the changes to its 2023 model year lineup, it mentioned a new Audi Sport package for the S6 and S7. Now, the 2023 Audi S6 and 2023 Audi S7 Sportback have been officially revealed, giving us a better look at the sporty enhancements.
Both models carry over the 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that first arrived back in 2020. It still includes an electric-powered compressor (EPC) system, yielding 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque going out to Quattro all-wheel-drive through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 0-60 mph time should remain the same at 4.4 seconds.
Though there aren't any changes under the hood, Audi will introduce a Design Edition package beginning in June 2022. This package will be available exclusively for the 2023 model year as a $2,500 option.
On the exterior, the Design Edition package adds a high-gloss Black optic package matched with Liquid Dark Chrome exterior accents, including the Audi rings, rear S6/S7 badges, front/rear bumpers, and roof. The Design Edition unlocks an exclusive new color called Arrow Gray, though owners can also select Brilliant and Mythos Black Metallic, Daytona Gray Pearl Effect, Firmament Blue Metallic, Florett Silver Metallic, Glacier White Metallic, Tango Red Metallic, and Ultra Blue Metallic. These colors all pair with 21-inch Audi Sport wheels painted in Platinum Gray with red brake calipers.
On the inside, the S6 and S7 gain an Audi Sport design interior with red stitching throughout the cabin. The package also includes Dinamica (a breathable microfiber material) for the shifter, lower console, and knee pads. This microfiber material pairs with Valcona leather seats and an RS-style flat-bottom Alcantara steering wheel, making the S6 and S7 look a lot like their RS6 and RS7 counterparts. To cap off the RS-inspired interior, Audi added red edges to the seatbelts.
The 2023 S6 starts at $72,700 for the Premium trim, going up to $77,400 for the Premium Plus and $81,500 for the Prestige. As always, the S7 Sportback is more expensive, starting at $82,500 in Premium guise, $86,700 for Premium Plus, and $90,500 for Prestige.
