Audi has taken a decade to redesign the S5 and, according to Audi fans, the wait was worth it. Audi took its predecessor’s best properties and built on them, including a refined interior, spirited driving kinetics and sleek styling. It’s available in three forms: the cabriolet, four-door sport back and coupe.

The Audi S5 combines luxury and comfort to provide a smooth and blasting drive, showing how to do it right in every metric. This coupe is a hub of some of the latest automotive technology and comes top when compared to competitors such as the Mercedes C-Class and BMW 4 Series.

All three versions of the S5 come with a redefined engine: a 3.0-liter, supercharged V6. The previous version came with a naturally ambitious V8, but after a facelift, a supercharged V6 was installed instead. The current design features a two-scrolled and turbocharged beast fixed under light loads and hidden between cylinder banks. It runs quite efficiently on the Miller thermodynamic cycle.

The 354hp V6 churns about 369 lb-ft of torque, which is an additional 44lb-ft and 21 ponies on the previous supercharged V6. The manual coupe is available with a six-speed transmission. The automatic comes with an eight-speed transmission thanks to its seven-speed-dual-clutch transmission system. AWD is standard on all models, and an optional (only exclusive to the Audi S5) torque-vectoring rear differential is also available.

The A5 cabriolet falls short of the S5 counterpart by 102hp and 96 lb-ft of torque. Test drives, however, do not depict that much of a difference. The S5 hits 60mph in 4.8 seconds and covers quarter of a mile in 13.5 secs at 103mph. As for the turbocharged four-powered A5, it takes 5.2 seconds to hit 60mph and 14.2 seconds to finish the quarter of a mile at 98mph.   

Despite this, the A5 outperforms its more expensive S5 counterpart on the skidpad. It displays a grip of 0.96g compared to the S5’s 0.94g. The A5 requires 145 feet to stop from 70mph while the S5 comes second with 158 feet. This comparison is, however, not that dependable since both vehicles had different types of summer performance tires.

The previous convertible model had a maddening top that required the driver to park and hold a button until it is completely closed. The new model, however, has a head with better functionality and can be operated with the single touch of a button. This is even possible at speeds of up to 31mph. It takes 21 secs to close and 18 to open.

Interior features are what anyone would expect from a 2018 Audi. The high-quality material offers plenty of breathtaking fanciness. One tested model featured soft-touch door panels, Magma Red leather, premium metal accents and carbon-fiber inlays. The finish and fittings are top-notch. The layout is clean and slick with everything efficiently located and placed.

The rear seats have about 32.7 inches of leg room. Children and adults of average height will fit well. The driver and front passenger get the most out of the coupe thanks to attractive standard features. However, taller coupe drivers may struggle to find a suitable driving position due to the low roof, beefy front pillars and tall seats.

The Premium Plus S5 is highly recommended since it offers a variety of elective options. This is more than you will get on the fully-stacked Prestige. The S sport package can also be added since it offers a larger screen, a virtual instrument panel, and Navigation.
