2018 Audi S5 Coupe 

The 2018 Audi S5 Coupe brings 354 hp, a new quattro® all-wheel-drive system, and the unrivalled sports car styling that separates an Audi from everything else on the market. From standout performance to indulgent fittings and top-tier tech, here's everything you need to know about one of the most desirable new models of the year.

Powertrains and Performance Features

The 2018 Audi S5 Coupe promises to deliver above and beyond when it comes to power and performance. At the heart of its sleek, aerodynamic body sits an intercooled DOHC 24-valve V6 engine with direct fuel injection. A single twin-scroll turbocharger sits in the valley between the cylinders, and over 800 parts have been upgraded from the previous powertrain.

All told, the new Audi S5 Coupe will be enlivened by up to 345 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. So, you can expect the vehicle to turn and accelerate with precision and fleetness uncommon within even the luxury coupe segment.

The new model is up to 130 pounds lighter than its previous model, so you'll feel a noticeable sense of lightness and agility. And the 2018 Audi S5 Coupe doesn't rely merely on an impressive power-to-weight ratio-that raw force is complemented by a variety of first-class performance features, including:

  • Quattro® All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System: The new Quattro AWD system delivers sure-footed traction during inclement weather and outstanding balance and control at all times.
  • Torque-Vectoring Sport Differential: Ensures understeer is eliminated and makes even the sharpest cornering feel natural and elegantly controlled.
  • 8-Speed Automatic Transmission with Manual Shifting Mode: In automatic mode, enjoy an effortless drive, then switch to manual for precise alteration of gears. At all times, 8 separate ratios deliver a fine blend of power and efficiency, with shifts made seamlessly.

Tech Features

The Audi lineup has always been home to the finest technologies, and Audi has never been scared to debut the very latest features before they find a foothold with less innovative brands.

That rule certainly seems to be holding true for the 2018 Audi S5 Coupe, which will be granted a state-of-the-art infotainment system through the available Audi virtual cockpit's fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster. Running along the dashboard horizontally, just like a tablet, it unites navigational, audio, and connectivity systems, offering both classic and infotainment modes. You'll also be able to enjoy screen views for Google Earth™ and Google Street View™.

To let you keep tabs on vital driving data, from current speed to turn-by-turn directions, without taking hands from the wheel or eyes from the road, the available Audi head-up display will direct images right onto your windshield; for the 2018 model, the display produces less glare and boasts improved clarity.

The 2018 Audi S5 Coupe will uphold the manufacturer's unflagging reputation for plush interior luxury, with deep leather seats, a leather gear selector, and a driver-centric cockpit that puts everything exactly where you feel that it should go. Even the rear seats benefit from enough legroom to keep rear passengers happy during longer drivers, and Audi has reportedly improved the already generous 12.2 cubic foot trunk of the previous generation.

Safety Features

The 2018 Audi S5 Coupe is likely to be a model that appeals to drivers who want to make even a trip from Joliet to Aurora or Naperville into Chicago feel more dramatic.

Dramatic it might be, but the vehicle will never let an epic drive interfere with its ability to protect you and your passengers in the unlikely event of a collision occurring. In fact, the Audi S5 Coupe is debuting with several high-grade driver-assistance technologies, including:

  • Traffic Jam Assist: Regularly meet gridlocked conditions during your morning commute? When the road is congested and you must move between 0 and 40 mph, available Traffic Jam Assist can guide your acceleration, braking, and steering.
  • Audi pre sense city: Enhancing your awareness, this system is able to detect vehicles-whether cornering, stationary, or moving straight-at speeds of up to 52 mph, and it can even detect pedestrians. If a crash is detected as imminent, you will be warned, and emergency braking will be initiated if necessary.
