Paste Text HereNew to the U.S. in 2013, the Audi RS 5 debuted in European markets in 2010. Audi’s RS models are a high-performance version of the corresponding A and S models, and the RS 5, with a peak of 450 horsepower, is no exception.

What's New for 2014

The only announcement of note for the 2014 model year is that it is the first year that both a coupe and a cabriolet are available for the RS 5.

Choosing Your Audi RS 5

As a high-performance model, the RS 5 comes standard with a 4.2-liter V8 that packs a punch at 450 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automated manual transmission lets you choose an automatic mode, handy for daily city driving, or opt for the manual driver-operated setting that utilizes the console-mounted shift selector or paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system is also standard.

The biggest decision to make before purchasing an RS 5 is whether to select the coupe or the cabriolet. The two models are essentially alike in every respect except those relating to the roof. The coupe offers a panoramic sunroof while the cabriolet features the soft top and pop-up rollbars. The cabriolet also switches from the adaptive rear spoiler that is standard on the coupe to a trunk-mounted lip spoiler.

Standard features on both models include such amenities as a 10-speaker Audi sound system, Nappa leather seats, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and keyless entry and start functions. There are also RS-exclusive exterior styling elements and heated side mirrors with a memory function and integrated turn signals.

Option packages available for both models include:

  • A Navigation Plus package that includes not only the navigation system but also the Audi Connect internet connection system, a DVD player, HD radio and voice-control operation. The package also features a blind-spot monitor system and a rearview camera.
  • A Driver Assist package gives you adaptive cruise control and dynamic steering.
  • For the cabriolet only, a Comfort package adds heating vents at head level and ventilated sport seats upholstered in perforated Milano leather.

A number of standalone options offer upgrades such as ceramic brakes, a sports exhaust system and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. There are also several optional wheel choices for both models, as well as some trim details.
