Millie Lowe Audi, 2017-11-04 19:54:18. The new Audi RS5 Coupe demonstrates its sporty character as a gran turismo at first glance. The designers drew inspiration for the car from the distinctive motorsport details of the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO. The front, sides and rear exhibit RS-typical differentiation. Measuring 4,723 millimeters (185.9 in) in length, the second generation of the Audi RS5 Coupe is 74 millimeters (2.9 in) longer than the predecessor model. The height is 1,360 millimeters (53.5 in) and thus 6 millimeters (0.2 in) lower than previously. At 1,861 millimeters (73.3 in), the vehicle’s width is almost the same as before.

Further new-to-Fiesta features inspired by Ford‘s larger vehicles include a heated steering wheel for comfort on cold winter mornings, and a stylish new instrument cluster featuring a 4.2 inch multi-function TFT display that delivers an attractive welcome sequence on start-up. A stiffer body structure, reduced powertrain noise vibration and harshness, enhanced powertrain isolation, and an acoustic windshield contribute to a more comfortable and premium driver and passenger experience. Best-in-class levels of quietness include an interior road noise level of 29.3 sone - a metric for loudness - at 100 km/h (62 mph), a 7 per cent improvement over the outgoing Fiesta.

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. Audi Sport offers the RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an alternative. It uses steel springs and three-stage adjustable dampers that are connected to one another via diagonal oil lines and a central valve. When cornering at speed, the valves regulate the oil flow in the shock absorber of the spring-deflected front wheel at the outside of the curve. They increase the support provided and reduce pitch and roll movements. They thus connect the vehicle more closely to the road and improve handling. A new damper generation with integrated control valve ensures much more noticeable spread between the individual modes of the Audi drive select system.

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.

In its basic specification, the all-new BMW X3 comes with 18-inch light-alloy wheels while wheels up to 21 inches in diameter are available depending on the equipment and engine variant. The powerful braking system features lightweight brakes offering optimized performance as well as an Electric Parking Brake. A broad array of electronic control systems help the driver maximize safety at all times. These systems include: Driving Stability Control (DSC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Automatic Differential Brake (ADB-X), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), Start-Off Assistant, Performance Control, and Hill Descent Control (HDC).
Caitlin Duncan Audi, 2017-10-13 20:03:47. 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).

Compared to sheet steel components made of many individual parts that are welded together, they are eight kilograms (17.6 lb) lighter. This construction allows a very stiff connection between the upper links and the body for the best-possible steering response - optimal conditions for dynamic handling.

A new manufacturing technology analyses the noise frequencies produced during the stamping process, and can identify a component that does not meet quality standards before it leaves the press. "We’ve paid a lot of attention to elements and features that customers notice without realising it, from panel gaps to pedal feel," Palmer said. "Fiesta is one of the most universal sights on the road, and our goal was to deliver a car that would inspire an admiring glance every time."
