A revised five-link construction is used on the front axle. At the rear, a five-link suspension replaces the trapezoidal-link suspension used on the previous model. This benefits the sporty driving characteristics and agility. It also improves comfort significantly. With the standard RS sport suspension, the new RS5 Coupe sits 7 millimeters (0.3 in) lower than the base model. As an alternative, Audi Sport also offers the RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), ceramic brakes and dynamic steering with RS-specific tuning. Drivers can make their personal driving experience more individual, dynamic or comfortable using the standard dynamic handling system Audi drive select.
The high-output V6 doesn’t just impress with its strong performance, but also with its high level of efficiency. In the NEDC, it consumes just 8.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (27.0 US mpg), which corresponds to 197 grams CO2 per kilometer (317.0 g/mi). This means a 17 percent consumption saving compared with the previous model. A decisive factor in this is the new TFSI combustion process from Audi, which is known as the B-cycle. It has been specifically designed for the partial-load range, which is the predominant operating mode during normal use.
The fast, spontaneously and sportily shifting eight-speed tiptronic with optimized shift times is standard on the new Audi RS5 Coupe. The layout of its gear sets and shifting elements results in low drag torques and thereby to a high efficiency level. Its large number of gears very frequently makes it possible to operate the engine close to its ideal load point. The lower gears have short, sporty ratios, while the upper gears are long in order to reduce revs and fuel consumption.
As an alternative to the further-developed electromechanical power steering, Audi also offers dynamic steering with RS-specific tuning. This uses a superposition gear to vary its ratio by up to 100 percent, depending on the car‘s speed and the mode selected in the Audi drive select dynamic handling system. At the cornering limits, the system countersteers with tiny impulses, thus further boosting the dynamism and driving safety. In the dynamic setting within Audi drive select, the superposition of the dynamic steering is stiff in order to support a more sporty driving style.
