The 2.9 TFSI was derived from the 3.0 TFSI used in the Audi S5. Because of the greater forces inside the engine, the valve lift has been shortened by 3 millimeters (0.1 in) to 86 millimeters (3.4 in). With its unchanged bore of 84 millimeters (3.3 in), the displacement is 2,894 cm3. The crankcase integrates thin-walled cylinder liners made of gray cast iron and the crankshaft main bearing has a 2-millimeter (0.08 in) larger diameter compared with the 3.0 TFSI.
The crankcase is created from an aluminum-silicon alloy by means of sand casting and weighs just 34 kilograms (75.0 lb). The so-called "deep-skirt" design extends the walls of the crankcase far downwards, which also saves weight. The entire engine weighs just 182 kilograms (401.2 lb) which makes it 31 kilograms (68.3 lb) lighter than its V8 predecessor. Gross weight and axle load distribution are the predominant beneficiaries of this in the new RS5 Coupe. The flat-bottomed 3-spoke RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel features multifunction buttons for convenient operation of the infotainment system. Equally integrated are high-gloss black shift paddles with aluminum elements. The steering wheel rim bears the RS badge, as does the RS-specific shift gate. An additional optical highlight is the optional RS design package. It brings the sporty contrast color red into play on the center console as well as on the armrests, the seat belts and the floor mats with RS logo. The steering wheel, selector lever and knee pads are all covered with Alcantara. The Sonoma green design package from Audi exclusive enriches the interior with appropriately colored contrasting stitching - perfect for the new, exclusive exterior color.
A comprehensive range of infotainment choices is sure to keep everyone on board entertained. Optionally available, the MMI navigation plus with MMI touch includes the Audi connect hardware module. This connects the new RS5 Coupe to the internet using LTE technology. Thanks to the Audi connect SIM, which is permanently installed in the car, the flat-rate data package for the connect services including Europe-wide roaming is free of charge for three years. Passengers can browse the internet with their mobile devices via the Wi-Fi hotspot option. The Audi smartphone interface uses Apple Car Play and Android Auto to make selected apps available in a separate MMI menu. Operation is easy and intuitive, thanks to natural language voice control, free text search function and the multifunction steering wheel. The touchpad in the center console can be used to zoom, scroll and enter characters. Further high-end technologies, such as the head-up display and as many as 30 driver assistance systems enhance safety, comfort and efficiency. The intelligent interplay between these systems represents another step towards piloted driving.
