2018 Audi S5 Sportback Specs

2018 Audi S5 Sportback Specs – It’s something of a no-brainer, this clever amalgamation of parts stemmed from an existing platform: Take the best-looking body and fit the greatest powertrain into it, and voilà: the new-to-the-U.S. Audi S5 Sportback. It combines the low, streamlined lines of the new A5 Sportback with the strong 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 that we just recently enjoyed in the S4 sedan. At the rear, 4 exhaust pointers and a handsome (if nonfunctional) lower diffuser panel are the 2018 Audi S5 Sportback‘s calling cards. We’ve revealed appointments about the conservative redesigns of both the brand-new Audi A4 and Audi A5, however, the Sportback is nicely executed, cars and truck that you’ll desire to reveal off.

Interior

The 2018 Audi S5 Sportback uses the extra freight area of the Audi A5 Sportback — 17 cubic feet with the rear seats up, which can be accessed through the yawning rear hatch. The readily available location expands to 46 cubes when the rear seats are folded. Otherwise, the interior is transferred, essentially undamaged, from the S4 sedan, consisting of the firm, comfortable seats and the futuristic dashboard with two TFT screens. Regarding the screens, the system in front of the chauffeur can be configured to press the speedometer and tachometer into the corners in order to open space for a large map.

Engine Specs

The DOHC 3.0-liter single-turbo V-6 makes 354 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque at a low 1370 rpm. It lacks the crisp-edged responsiveness of its predecessor’s supercharged six, any turbo lag is successfully reduced by the eight-speed automatic. We think the Audi S5 Sportback would be better off with either of the previous S5’s transmissions: the fantastic six-speed handbook or the crisp seven-speed dual clutch automatic (the latter is offered in the less effective A5 Sportback). Sadly, the manual gearbox can’t be had in the S5. Audi states a number of the popular driver-assistance systems– which serve as turning points on the method to self-governing driving– operate appropriately only if the gear selection is handled electronically. To which we say: Mazda manages to make adaptive cruise control work with a manual transmission, so it’s possible, simply something the Germans are hesitant to do. However as automatics go, this eight-speed is smooth and quick, and it operates in near-perfect harmony with the turbo six, an engine that makes the ideal noises all the way approximately its 6500-rpm redline. Audi claims that 62 miles per hour

Audi claims that 62 miles per hour turns up in a (likely conservative) 4.7 seconds and that the leading speed is governed at 155 mph.

Price

The 2018 Audi S5 Sportback will complete head-to-head with the BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe and the (somewhat coupelike) Mercedes-AMG C43 sedan. When it comes to market next spring, the S5 will cost around $56,000– practically similar to the price of its S5 coupe brother or sister. America accepted the S7 four-door coupe well enough that Audi is ready to let us have this smaller sized, cheaper take on the same concept. We’re looking forward to finally running an Audi S5 Sportback through our screening program to see how it actually measures up to the competitors.
