2018 S5 Audi Sportback produces 354 hp

The 2018 Audi S5 Sportback will arrive in dealerships this spring featuring the distinctive Sportback body style and producing 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds.

The S5 Sportback is equipped with an all-new 3.0-liter TFSI V6 engine which produces 354 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque from 1,370 to 4,500 rpm. The S5 is also newly equipped with an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. Every S5 Sportback is also standard-equipped with quattro all-wheel drive, offering high-precision and dynamic handling through active torque distribution to both axles.

The S5 Sportback design mirrors the coupe’s featuring a wider, flatter Singleframe grille and a longer, lower hood line. The wave-design shoulder line is more pronounced than previous generations and wider wheel arches provide design cues to the vehicle’s quattro DNA. Rear horizontal design lines joined by the slim three-dimension LED taillights offer a distinctly powerful look and emphasize vehicle width.

The S5 Sportback includes aluminum-optic exterior side mirror housings, Platinum Gray Singleframe grille with aluminum-optic double horizontal blade bars, S model specific rear diffuser with honeycomb structure, and quad exhaust outlets with chrome tips.

The refined interior has seating for up to five standard. A three-dimensional decorative inlay trim with climate control integration spans from the door panels across the dashboard. The S5 Sportback also offers a generous 35 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the rear seats folded down.

The 2018 A5 Sportback has a starting MSRP of $42,600.
