A revised design, new suspension equipment as well as a new infotainment system bring the Audi RS5 and RS5 Sportback up to date with the competition.

12 Dec 2019 | International News : Germany

Audi has revised the RS5 Coupe and RS5 Sportback, granting the cars new design and technological changes.

Audi's iconic Singleframe grille has become wider and flatter for the updated RS5 Coupe and RS5 Sportback
Design wise, the iconic Singleframe for both cars has become wider and flatter, while the side sills and the diffuser insert at the rear end which enclose the two large tailpipes of the exhaust system have also been redesigned.

A more personalised look can be achieved with the gloss black, matt aluminium, and carbon styling packages, which change the finish of the attachments at the front and rear ends and the side sills accordingly. Two new paint
 colours, Turbo Blue and Tango Red, have also been added to the colour palette.

The two RS5 models will also now feature a 10.1-inch Multi Media Interface touch display. The large, free-standing display with acoustic feedback is slightly inclined toward the driver, while if the top infotainment system MMI Navigation Plus is specified, a specific RS monitor will provide the driver with information on the drive temperature, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, tyre pressure and tyre temperature.

The Audi Drive Select dynamic handling system also now offers the two new modes, RS1 and RS2, allowing the driver to preselect two modes to suit their personal preferences and store them. They can then be enabled directly via the 'RS MODE' button on the steering wheel without having to operate the MMI touch response again.

The revised RS5 models are now equipped with 19-inch wheels, while new 20-inch wheels are also available upon request in three variants, one of which is painted completely in gloss black and another in matt bronze.

The standard brake system receives steel disks gripped by calipers painted in either black or red, while Audi also offers carbon fibre ceramic brake disks for the front axle, with calipers painted in either grey, red, or blue.

444bhp from a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 sees both RS5 models reaching 100km/h from a standstill in 3.9 seconds
The familiar 2.9-litre TFSI twin-turbocharged V6 remains as the heart of the RS5 models, with total output unchanged at 444bhp and a whopping 600Nm of torque. Both RS5 models accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and will reach a top speed of up to 280km/h upon request.

A quick-shifting eight-speed tiptronic directs the power of the engine to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive. Larger aluminium shift paddles allow easier manual control of the gearbox.

The sale of both models will begin shortly in European markets.
