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.
With the newly developed 2.9 TFSI, Audi has drawn upon the legendary 2.7 liter V6 from the first RS4 Avant. Produced between 1999 and 2001, it delivered 280 kW (380 hp). Just like the 2.7 liter engine, the new high-performance V6 is also designed as a bi-turbo engine. In comparison with its direct predecessor, a freely-aspirated, high-revving V8 unit, its pulling power and efficiency attain a whole other dimension.
Hot-formed parts form the high-strength, crash-safe backbone of the occupant cell. They reinforce the transition from the front body to the interior, the front zone of the roof frame, the B-pillars, side sills and parts of the floor. The proportion of these parts in the body structure is 17 percent. A carbon roof with visible fiber structure is also available as an option, delivering a further weight saving of 3 kilograms (6.6 lb).
The bi-turbo‘s power flows through a sportily-tuned, eight-speed tiptronic transmission with optimized shift times and on to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive which features a self-locking central differential. The drive forces are asymmetrically distributed between the axles in the ratio of 40:60. Dynamic handling with optimum traction and the best-possible levels of safety are thus guaranteed. Audi Sport also offers an optional rear sport differential.
