Kiera Shaw. Audi. October 13th , 2017.
The 2.9 TFSI V6 bi-turbo engine, which Audi developed from the ground up, offers sharp increases in power and efficiency as well as an incomparably full-bodied RS sound. It delivers 331 kW (450 hp). And it‘s peak torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) - 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than the previous model - is available across a broad engine speed range from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm. The top model in the A5 family sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph) - with the optional RS dynamic package it can even reach 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
Sporty interior in black and red: the flat-bottomed RS sport leather steering wheel is standard, as are the stainless steel pedals and RS sport seats. As an option, they can be covered in fine Nappa leather with honeycomb pattern. Red contrasting stitching adds emphasis to the steering wheel, center console, armrests, seats and floor mats. Carbon decorative trim underlines the dynamic appearance. The horizontal architecture of the instrument panel creates a vast sense of spaciousness in the high-quality, sportily appointed interior of the new RS5 Coupe. As standard, it welcomes the driver and passengers with illuminated door sills bearing the RS5 logo. LED light guides trace the contours of the doors and the center console - doing so in 30 different colors in combination with the optional ambient lighting. The interior is black. RS sport seats with rhombus pattern and embossed RS emblem underline the character of the high-performance Coupe. They are available in a combination of leather and Alcantara, and feature seat heating and a lumbar support. The RS sport seats are optionally available in fine Nappa leather with honeycomb pattern and contrasting stitching. They are also available in perforated Milano leather.
The excellent torsional rigidity of the body is the foundation for a highly precise driving response as well as for peace and quiet on board. This allows the new RS5 Coupe to be a step ahead of its competitors. Switchable engine bearings ensure comfort at idle. The new RS5 Coupe also scores top marks for passive safety. In the interior, the adaptive occupant restraint system for the front seats offers outstanding protection. It adjusts the effect of the front airbags and the seat-belt force limiters to the seating position of the driver and front passenger as well as to the type of frontal collision.
The luggage compartment offers ten liters (0.4 cu ft) more volume than before. It now holds a best-in-segment value of 465 liters (16.4 cu ft). The tailgate opens automatically and the two-door Coupe can be ordered from Audi with optional sensor control. With this, a proximity sensor in the rear bumper reacts to a kicking motion. The tailgate unlocks and opens automatically if the optionally available advanced key is detected.
