The Audi RS 5 Sportback is now available to order in Germany and other European countries. The five-door, high-performance model combines exceptional design and high everyday usability with maximum performance.
The progressive exterior design of the Audi RS 5 Sportback illustrates the model’s dynamicst. An RS-typical diffuser insert, the RS exhaust system with oval tailpipes as well as a surface-mounted spoiler lip provide sporty accents at the rear. The RS 5 Sportback comes standard with 19-inch forged wheels; 20-inch wheels are available as an option. Customers can customize the new Audi RS 5 Sportback with the gloss black, matt aluminum and carbon styling packages. The paint finish Sonoma green metallic is exclusive to the Audi RS 5.
Finished entirely in black, the interior of the new Audi RS 5 Sportback is richly and functionally equipped while offering space for five people. Details such as RS sport seats with optional honeycomb pattern in Fine Nappa leather and the flat-bottomed RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel underscore the sporty character of the five-door, high-performance coupé.
The inner values of the RS 5 Sportback also impress with power and efficiency. The 2.9 TFSI V6 biturbo engine produces 331 kW (450 hp). Its maximum torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) is available between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm. The Audi RS 5 Sportback accelerates to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds on its way to an optional top speed of 280 km/h (174.0 mph).
A sportily tuned eight-speed tiptronic with optimized gear changing transfers the power of the 2.9 TFSI to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive with self-locking center differential. It distributes the power to the axles asymmetrically (40:60), ensuring dynamic handling with optimal traction combined with the greatest possible safety. The Audi RS 5 Sportback can be ordered immediately and will be at dealerships from mid-2019. The five-door, high-performance coupé has a base price of 82.700 euros.
