2023 Audi S5 Sportback Engine, Mileage, Top Speed & 0-60 mph

All Details & Specifications of New 2023 Audi S5 Sportback

2023 Audi S5 Sportback is nothing but a 349-hp S5 coupe stretched from both ends to accommodate more passenger space, four doors, and a hatchback liftgate. Both the S5 use the same turbocharged V6 mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission rushing through Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system. The neat S5 Sportback is excellent on curvy roads and, its punchy powertrain can hustle, but the delivery feels somewhat muzzled. Competitors such as the BMW M340i and the Mercedes-AMG C43 are sharper and more fun to drive. The S5’s large hatchback liftgate makes cargo loading easy but compared to the physically identical S4 sedan, the Sportback’s rear legroom is less. That’s what you pay for the style, and the S5 Sportback has plenty.

Finally, the Quantum Gray paint option has been replaced by Chronos Gray. 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.
