2021 Audi S5 Overview

What's New

The 2021 Audi S5 gets more standard features: wireless Apple CarPlay integration, lane keeping assist, and a built-in toll module.

Going with the Premium Plus trim now brings adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and a surround-view camera system. The range-topping Prestige adds heated rear seats as standard.

The minor changes don’t result in a radically different S5, but the high-performance car continues to be a well-rounded option in the class. While not as powerful as competitors, the S5 brings modern tech features, upscale designs, and a duality in the way it performs.

Choosing Your Audi S5

The S5 is available in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Pricing starts at $53,545 including destination for the Premium and only climbs to $61,645 for the Prestige.

The S5 is also offered in three different body styles: Coupe, Cabriolet (convertible), and Sportback (sedan with a hatchback). The Coupe and Sportback are priced the same, except for the Prestige which is $300 more in Sportback form. The Cabriolet is $8,100 more across all three trim levels.

Engine Choices

Regardless of trim, the S5 comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that produces 349 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It's paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while power is put down through an all-wheel-drive system.

The S5 Coupe can get from 0-60 mph from a standstill in just 4.4 seconds.

The S5 is rated by the EPA to get 20 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 23 combined. The Cabriolet falls slightly behind with ratings of 20/26/22 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

S5 Coupe and Cabriolet models can seat up to four passengers, while the Sportback has five available seats. The two rear seats in the two-door variants aren’t exactly spacious, being short on rear leg room.

When it comes to cargo space, the Coupe offers 10.9 cubic feet and the Cabriolet only brings 7.3 cubic feet. If buyers are looking for more, the Sportback is the obvious choice with its 21.8 cubic feet of cargo space. You can also fold the rear seats down in the Sportback to open up 35.01 cubic feet.

Safety Features

The S5 comes standard with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning. Move up to the Premium Plus to unlock adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a surround-view camera system, and parking sensors.


Every S5 comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. A 7-inch display in the instrument cluster is also included.

Wireless smartphone charging and Audi's virtual cockpit system that includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster are standard with the Premium Plus trim. The Prestige further gets navigation, a head-up display, and a Bang and Olufsen audio system.

Premium - From $53,545

Over the regular A5, the S5 brings a more aggressive design with quad exhaust outlets, 18-inch wheels, a sport suspension, summer performance tires, and LED taillights. A panoramic sunroof, three-zone automatic climate control, 12-way power front sport seats, heated front seats, and Alcantara leather upholstery are standard.

Premium Plus - From $57,145

The Premium Plus trim brings adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a surround-view camera system, parking sensors, wireless charging, the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and leatherette for the door armrests and center console.

The S Sport package brings red brake calipers, a sport rear differential, and adaptive suspension for $2,500. Ventilated front seats, Hoxton leather upholstery, and power lumbar for the front seats are included with the $550 Warm Weather package.

Prestige - From $61,645

Audi’s matrix LED headlights, headlight and taillight animation, navigation, a head-up display, and a Bang and Olufsen audio system are standard on the range-topping Prestige model.

CarsDirect Tip

Regardless of what body style you end up choosing, the 2021 Audi S5 is best in the Premium Plus trim. We’d also go with the versatile, yet sporty and handsome Sportback trim, as it costs just as much as the Coupe, but brings far more usability.
