NEW FOR 2015:
Nothing significant changes on Audi’s gorgeous compact coupe. It continues to be available as a coupe or convertible, as the standard-tune A5, sporty S5 and sportier RS5. Engine choices are a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder (2.0T; 220 hp/258 lb-ft of torque) in the A5, a supercharged 3.0L V6 (333 hp/325 lb-ft) in the S5, and a 4.2L V8 in the RS5 (450 hp/317 lb-ft). A5 coupes use either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission, while convertibles are automatic-only. S5 is offered with six-speed manual and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions, and the RS5 is sold exclusively with the seven-speed auto. All cars in the line have Quattro all-wheel drive.
