Audi S5 Sportback

The 2018 model year has Audi introducing a completely updated A5 and S5. This lineup includes coupe, cabriolet and, new to the North American this year, Sportback models. The A5 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 252 horsepower. The Audi S5 is the A5’s two-door brother. A sportier ride with the same level of luxury, the S5 boasts a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine rated at 354 hp. Car and Driver has rated the A5 with a five-star rating.


Audi Virtual Cockpit

The highlight of the third-generation Audi S5 is the unique Sportback body style which allows a spacious interior without sacrificing luxury. The Sportback is wider than before and has twice as much cargo room as the coupe, thus making the back seat much more comfortable and usable for passengers of all size.

Audi has stepped up its game by packing the interior with driver-focused technology. The Audi virtual cockpit allows the driver to have any available information displayed such as the navigation arrow, dynamic vehicle animations and images from the rear camera as well as graphics of the assistance systems. Making the virtual cockpit a fully digital instrument cluster of the future for the urban commuter.

The 2018 Audi S5 does not only have the appearances of a true sports car, but it also has the engine to support the claim. The all-new Audi S5 sprints onto the scene with an adrenaline-charged 354-hp engine. All north-American models are equipped with Audi quattro® all-wheel drive, which maximizes traction in wet weather conditions. Something that is particularly beneficial for adventures in Vancouver’s rainy climate.
