Libby Wade Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Eve Fitzgerald Audi, October 13th , 2017. Just like the entire A5 model family, the new Audi RS5 Coupe also benefits from a drastic reduction in weight. It weighs in at 1,655 kilograms (3,648.7 lb) - 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) less than previously. The body of the new RS5 Coupe is among the lightest in the segment. Thanks to geometrical lightweight construction and an intelligent mix of materials, it weighs 15 kilograms (33.1 lb) less than the body of the previous model. The module cross member under the instrument panel, for instance, consists of extruded aluminum profiles and sheets, and the front cross member is an extruded profile.
Mollie Slater Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Shannon Griffin Audi, October 13th , 2017. The styling packages - gloss black, carbon and matt aluminum - provide even more customization options. Overall, the Audi RS5 Coupe is available in seven colors, with Audi Sport also offering the exclusive paint color Sonoma green metallic. In the Audi exclusive range, there are also numerous freely selectable exterior paint finishes available.
Mollie Slater Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Caitlin Duncan Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Niamh Hart Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Eve Fitzgerald Audi, October 13th , 2017. The designers drew inspiration for the RS5 Coupe from the distinctive racing details of the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO. Massive air inlets with the honeycomb structure typical of RS models characterize the front end of the car. The Singleframe radiator grille is much wider and flatter than in the base model. Next to the headlights are additional lateral air intakes and outlets; tinted bezels differentiate the optional Matrix LED headlights. quattro blisters on the flanks emphasize the pronounced bulges over the wheel arches, which have been widened by 15 millimeters (0.6 in). As standard, these house 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, with 20-inch wheels available as an option. A sporty conclusion to the vehicle is provided by the RS-specific diffuser insert, the oval tailpipes of the RS exhaust system and a surface-mounted spoiler lip. With a length of 4,723 millimeters (185.9 in), the new Audi RS5 Coupe is 74 millimeters (2.9 in) longer than the previous model.
Eleanor Norton Audi, October 13th , 2017. 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.
Millie Lowe Audi, October 13th , 2017. The standard headlights use LED technology, while the optional Matrix LED headlights are distinguished by their darker tinted bezels. Alongside them are additional lateral air inlets, which make this top-performing athlete appear even wider and more aggressive.
