The new RS5 range is fitted with a wider and flatter Singleframe grille design. The new styling is derived from the latest RS6 and RS7 cars. On the other hand, the narrow air vents just above the grille take inspiration from the 1984 Audi Sport Quattro. The changes are further complemented by new side sills and rear diffuser.

In addition, the new RS5 takes a new set of headlamps. The new lights can be upgraded with a matrix LED system and laser light technology.

The look of the RS5 is topped off by its 19-inch alloy wheels. Optional are 20-inch wheels in three different designs.

The RS5 also debuts two new colors called the “Turbo Blue” and “Tango Red”. It introduces a variety of new carbon accessories too, including a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) roofing that cuts around four kilograms of the car’s total weight.

Highlighting the cabin of the RS5 is a new 10.1-inch display with Multi Media Interface (MMI) touch. MMI touch streamlines the audio, vehicle settings, navigation system and wireless interface of the auto. It comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. The cockpit of the car can be upgraded with the optional Audi virtual cockpit plus with a 12.3-inch display and two new RS modes.

Meanwhile, the leather seats are in Alcantara and leather, but they can be upgraded to Nappa leather for an extra cost. These can be customized more with the optional RS design package that puts either red or grey accents.

Powertrain

The RS5 keeps its 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. The power is distributed via an eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox. The configuration allows the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds while the sportback does that in 3.8 seconds.

Audi claims that the RS5 offers improved handling. That’s if the new optional sport differential is installed in the rear axle, which distributed the torque actively on each wheel.

Price
