The Audi S5 Coupe 3.0L supercharged TFSI V6 engine in the Audi S5 variants produces 349 horsepower. The only drivetrain option is Quattro all-wheel drive. The front-wheel-drive cabriolet comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission, whereas the S5 coupe comes with a 8 Speed tiptronic Transmission.
A sports differential is added to S5 models to better disperse power and improve performance. It also boasts a power-folding acoustic soft top that can be operated at speeds up to 31 mph, as well as enough thermal insulation for winter use and a trunk area that has been given special attention. Even when folded, the top provides ample trunk room for a couple of small weekend bags (10.2 cubic feet).
To gain more space, the rear seatbacks can still be folded forward. LED reading lighting and a heated rear window are also included in the package. A panorama sunroof, heated power mirrors, heated windshield nozzles, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, a power driver's seat, 3-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, HomeLink universal remote, iPod adapter, and a 10-speaker, 180-watt sound system with auxiliary input and SD card slot are all standard features on premium S5 models.
The Premium Plus trim includes a 505-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 14 speakers, as well as xenon headlamps, LED tail lamps, heated front seats, and driver's seat memory settings.
Audi adaptive cruise control, which applies the brakes as needed to maintain a safe following distance, is available as part of the Audi Side Assist package. Seats that are heated and ventilated are also available. The front seats circulate warm air at neck level, allowing you to keep the top down in cooler weather.
The Audi Connect system, which uses a dedicated Internet connection to create the vehicle's own Wi-Fi network, is also available. The system also integrates with Audi's navigation system, allowing for easy streaming of Google Earth images for maps, real-time news, traffic, live Google Search, and weather.
