High power, understated, with ample features and a high degree of everyday practicality – all of these strengths come together in the Audi S models. Each model applies its power to the road with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.7 seconds. The new Audi S5 Coupé combines dramatic design with the performance of a sports car. Its newly developed, turbocharged V6 engine produces 260 kW (354 hp) and consumes just 7.3 liters of fuel per 100 km (32.2 US mpg). With an unladen weight of 1,615 kilograms (3,560.5 lb), the car is 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) lighter than its predecessor. The precision-honed exterior design and the numerous S-specific details in the interior underscore the dynamic character of the Audi two-door sports coupé.
Its turbocharged 3.0 TFSI engine newly designed from the ground up offers powerful performance: high output, hefty torque, spontaneous response and sonorous sound – all coupled with a new level of efficiency.
From its 2,995 cc of displacement, the V6 TFSI produces 260 kW (354 hp), which is 15 kW (21 hp) more than the previous engine. A constant 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) (plus 60 Nm/44.3 lb-ft) of torque is available from a low 1,370 all the way to 4,500 rpm. In the NEDC, the new 3.0 TFSI in the S5 Coupé consumes just 7.3 liters per 100 kilometers (32.2 US mpg) – a CO2 equivalent of 166 grams per kilometer (267.2 g/mi). Fuel consumption has dropped by five percent compared with the predecessor engine.
The drivetrain of the Audi S5 Coupé has been completely upgraded. This also applies to the smooth, rapid and spontaneously shifting, eight-speed tiptronic. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with its asymmetrically dynamic layout makes a major contribution toward sporty and stable handling of the new Audi S5 Coupé. The optional sport differential provides for even more dynamic response when steering and accelerating.
The Audi S5 Coupé features a newly developed S sport suspension with sensitively responding single-tube shock absorbers and five-link suspensions in front and rear. Alternatively, Audi offers a version with S-specific damper control (CDC = continuous damping control). The driver can push a button to choose the default setting of the suspension in Audi drive select and retrieve the desired handling characteristics at any time.
The new Audi S5 Coupé is at the front of its segment with a wide range of driver assistance systems. The systems come from the full-size class; their intelligent interplay represents another step on the road to piloted driving. Audi offers the same systems for the S5 Coupé as for the A5 Coupé.
