The top of the coupé class is a competitive area of the industry, especially when the Audi S5Coupé raises the bar for all others. The new generation model is fashionable inside and out, with both of these areas crafted to an exceptional standard. The model is rousing even before you slide behind the wheel and pull away.
At any one of Jardine Audi’s welcoming showrooms you can explore every inch of the S5Coupé in detail. A sales adviser will be on hand to answer your queries and schedule a test drive when convenient.
The S5 Coupé’s safety equipment is among the most impressive in the class which signals the German firm’s commitment to uncompromising protection.
For optimal stopping power Audi has developed an ‘S’ enhanced braking system which can cope with the car’s acceleration. At higher speeds the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) will detect any loss of control and instantly react to correct it.
Audi Parking System Plus will then direct you into a space once you have arrived at your destination.
Coupé conventions merge with Audi extravagance across the three-door S5.
The windscreen continues up to a gently curved roofline which ends at a short bootlid.
A neat spoiler integrates with the edge of the tailgate and at the very base of the rear are four chrome exhaust pipes.
The front fascia features a polished black radiator grille as part of the black styling package (Black Edition only). Xenon Plus headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights illuminate the road on both model types.
The interior design is a match for the absorbing exterior and brings some elements of the body inside.
More black inlays line the dashboard and doors to accompany the black headlining. The trendy cabin sits you on a heated leather sports seat which can be adjusted electronically to find the most supportive position.
Practical as well as tasteful, the car’s through-load facility enables long objects to be transported without having to fold the rear seats forward.
Powerful looks are representative of what sits below the bonnet. In the S5 Coupé you will find a 3.0-litre V6 quattro engine which Audi marries up to a seven-speed S tronic gearbox. Maximum power of 329bhp and 440Nm of torque lead the car from 0-60mph in under five seconds before 155mph is reached.
The S tronic transmission will shift through the gears independently until you intervene using the paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
Pace isn’t everything the unit has to offer, however. It also combines automatic start/stop and energy recuperation to bring emissions down and push fuel economy up.
More examples of Audi innovation are housed in the cabin. The Audi Concert audio system incorporates a CD player, SD memory card reader and auxiliary socket. Just like with the Audi Music Interface (AMI) you have the freedom to bring external music sources inside.
On top of this, Bluetooth® integration lets you take calls at the wheel so you never miss an important conversation.
