Audi S5

What's on this page

Audi S5

The ‘S’ in Audi S5 could stand for ‘sweet spot’. It’s not a full-fat RS sports model, but it has more than a few Audi Sport tricks applied to the formula, and the result is a superbly sports touring two-door Coupe or five-door Sportback – both of which stand apart from their competitors.

The German brand’s S5 model is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine that offers immense power and driveability, and it has Audi’s renowned ‘quattro’ all-wheel drive system to assure smooth progress.

And in another sweet move from the four-ring brand, deciding on whether to go for the S5 Coupe or the S5 Sportback does not come down to money - the price is the same for both body-styles, at $106,500.
