Both turbochargers of the 2.9 TFSI unit are centrally positioned inside the V of the engine and each of them supplies a single cylinder bank. The B-cycle combustion process with central direct injection represents a new level of efficiency within the RS family. In the NEDC, the V6 bi-turbo consumes just 8.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (27.0 US mpg), which corresponds to 197 grams of CO2 per kilometer (317.0 g/mi). This is an efficiency gain of 17 percent over the previous model. Also beneficial for the new Audi RS5 Coupe is a drastic reduction in weight. The vehicle weighs in at 1,655 kilograms (3,648.7 lb) - 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) less than previously. A carbon roof with visible fiber structure is also available as an option.
As standard, the RS5 Coupe rides on 19-inch lightweight forged wheels with 265/35 tires. Upon request, 20-inch wheels in various designs are available, among which the new, especially lightweight fully milled wheel. It uses 275/30 tires. Behind the big wheels are powerful RS steel brakes with perforated composite disks. At the front axle, these have a diameter of 375 millimeters (14.8 in), while at the rear, they measure 330 millimeters (13.0 in). The six-piston brake calipers with RS logos are painted in black, or optionally in red. Upon request, Audi can also equip the front axle with high-performance ceramic brakes featuring six-piston brake calipers and perforated disks with a diameter of 400 millimeters (15.7 in).
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.
