Expert Rating

4.9 (Excellent)
18 City / 26 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Audi S5 OVERVIEW

Audi’s sporty luxury coupe distinguishes itself with standard all-wheel drive, supercharged power and a drop-top variant. Despite its blustery performance, the S5 is also a pleasant touring car with grown-up style and poise.

What's New for 2014

Every S5 now comes with keyless ignition and driver-adjustable steering and transmission settings. The Black Optic appearance package is new this year.

Choosing Your Audi S5

At the heart of every S5 lies a supercharged 3-liter V6 with 333 horsepower. An automated manual transmission, known as S tronic, does the shifting. The coupe version can also get a conventional six-speed manual for a more authentic sports-car feel. Speaking of authenticity, the convertible carries an electrically powered soft top, just like the old days. All models ride on a sport-tuned suspension.

Both body styles are offered in two trim levels:

  • Premium Plus Coupe
  • Premium Plus Cabriolet
  • Prestige Coupe
  • Prestige Cabriolet

Premium Plus

The base S5 is well-equipped with tri-zone climate control, a leather and faux suede interior with front sport seats and driver memory, xenon headlamps, LED running lights, Bluetooth phone, a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio, a 6.5-inch multimedia interface and 18-inch wheels on summer performance tires.

The Comfort Package adds ventilated front seats and a neck-level heating system; the Black Optic Package outfits the exterior with specific 19-inch wheels, a black grille, body-color mirrors and gloss black window surrounds on the coupe.


Stepping up to the Prestige offers a higher level of luxury and convenience, including a Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound system, navigation, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, blind sport monitoring, adaptive headlamps, Bluetooth audio and a suite of online services.

A Driver Assistance Package adds adaptive cruise control and adaptive steering. The Comfort and Black Optic Packages are also available on the Prestige.

Individual options on all models include active suspension dampers, a performance differential and Nappa leather upholstery.

CarsDirect Tip

The S5 starts out at a very reasonable price, all things considered. But piling on the upgrades can spoil the value equation pretty quickly, so be judicious and select only the options you really need.
