All Details & Specification of New 2023 Audi S5
2023 Audi S5 coupe and cabriolet are the high-performance variants of the standard-issue A5 counterparts. The highlighting differences hide under the S5’s hood. Every S5 is equipped with a 349-hp turbocharged V6 with an eight-speed automatic, making a huge leap from the A5’s 261-hp turbo-four. The Quattro all-wheel drive is standard, and so is the pair of sturdy six-piston brake calipers. Although the S5 is more about talent than show, its lowered exhaust note is a change of pace in a segment with a lot of bangs and pops. The coupe and cabriolet body lack the passenger space of the four-door S5 Sportback. But all three share Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display, a large infotainment touchscreen, and a Bang & Olufsen stereo system. The S5 isn’t quick and aggressive, as options such as the BMW M340i and Mercedes-Benz C43, but it is engrossing to drive.
What’s New In 2023 Audi S5?
The S5 now features additional standard equipment, though most updates are optional appearance packages. The S5 Coupe houses a Bang & Olufsen sound system for the mid-Premium Plus trim. The Black Optic package has been replaced by a Black Optic Plus package, including black rocker sills, exhaust tips, rear spoiler, and darkened Audi badges. Adaptive cruise control is included with the available Convenience package. An optional Audi Sport interior is new and gives the inside of the S5 a black interior with red accents and RS carbon trim bits. Finally, the Chronos Gray replaces the Quantum Gray paint option. The Premium Plus trim is a perfect balance of options and price, including standard equipment. This includes Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display, blind-spot monitoring, passive keyless entry, a heated steering wheel, a 360-degree camera, wireless charging, and more.
Engine Specifications & Performance
All the S5 trims house the same 349-hp turbocharged V6, mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. A huge thanks to the launch-control system and all-wheel-drive traction, the S5 went from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds. Neglecting the additional weight, the S5 cabriolet is still plenty quick, hitting 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. Both the titillating two-door S5s are equipped with optional 19-inch performance tires and the S Sport package adds a torque-vectoring rear differential and adaptive dampers. Equipping these will result in a firm but still compliant rides. The coupe also comes equipped with the Dynamic Steering option, quickening the steering more when the wheel is turned from the center. The S Sport package also adds red-brake calipers.
