ABT Sportsline boosts looks and performance of Audi S5 and A5 Sportback

The Audi RS5 Coupe is a real stunner with its athletic looks and sporty performance. Regarded as a Gran Turismo among RS models by Audi Sport’s chief executive, the Audi RS5 Coupe offers 450 hp (336 kW) of max output and a 442 lb.-ft. (600 Nm) of peak torque, as derived from a 2.9 liter bi-turbo V6 engine. Getting a top-down version of the Audi RS5 Coupe is out of the question for now, but the good guys at ABT Sportsline are willing to offer a beefed up variant of the Audi S5 Cabriolet.

It is not exactly the RS5 Cabriolet, but ABT Sportsline’s creation is close – the ABT S5 Cabriolet. The most fundamental change made for the S5 Cabriolet is its power rating. As standard, a typical Audi S5 Cabriolet is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine that could deliver 354 hp (260 kW) of max output and 500 Nm of peak torque.

That’s nowhere close to the power rating of the dynamic mill inside the RS5 Cabriolet. However, the German tuner’s ABT Engine Control (AEC) made this already powerful engine become more dynamic, with the output and torque levels surging to 425 hp (313 kW) and 550 Nm, respectively. ABT Sportsline is also making this power tweak available for other body variants of the Audi S5.

Audi shows off convertible versions of the A5 and S5 at 2017 Detroit Auto Show

The latest members of the new-generation Audi A5 family have touched down at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. The new 2018 Audi A5 Cabriolet and S5 Cabriolet are making their North American debut, with an aim to spice up their appeal to the premium vehicle market in the United States.

These new Audi models include the new generation of the A5 and the S5, but without the hard top. Prior to the introduction of these models, Audi’s new generation A5 lineup seemed incomplete. Their arrival signals the availability of open-air driving and riding experience in the A5 family. Both the A5 and S5 Cabriolet are provided with a fully automatic top with one-touch opening function. This soft cloth top could be opened and closed -- with just a touch of a button -- in just 15 seconds and 18 seconds, respectively, at speeds of up to 31 mph. When opened, the top folds into three layers and stores itself in a tray located below the luggage compartment.

Basically, the A5 and S5 Cabriolet are the same, with the difference mainly centered in their engines, thus their on-the-road performances. Thus, the S5 is considered as the steroid-boosted A5 sans the muscles. Acting as the heart of the A5 Cabriolet is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 252 hp of output and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, this engine allows the A5 Cabriolet to zoom from zero to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds.

2018 Audi A5 will have a manual version, S5 gets 354 hp engine

A manual transmission arguably brings more excitement to the person behind the wheel. Here’s some good news to those who have been waiting for Audi to release the latest word on the A5 and S5 coupes. Much to our surprise, the Audi A5 is not the only Audi model that will have the six-speed manual sticks. The two-door coupe (A5) and the four-door variant (A4) will both come with manual transmission. If there’s more, these two different variants will also be sharing the same type of engine.

The new S5 model will have the powerful 354 hp engine and is capable of producing up to 369 pound feet of torque. Expect the two Audis to come with larger wheel arches, bolder shoulders and more distinctive outlines. Also, both the S5 and A5 models will be receiving a much wider grille design.

It goes without saying that the new A5 will also arrive in the US. The same model will feature the 252hp, 273lb-ft of torque turbocharged engine in four cylinders. Both 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual clutch transmissions are included in the new line-up.

2018 Audi A5 and S5 Sportback will arrive to the US market by spring

Hatchback enthusiasts are likely to be delighted with the news that Audi will finally be releasing to the U.S. market the 2018 A5 Sportback, which is the five-door version of the A5 coupe. That is not all as the brand will also be releasing the 2018 S5 Sportback. While price details have yet to be officially revealed, Audi says it will release these two models by spring.

There is however at least one difference in that while the U.S. market will indeed be getting a hatchback, it will not have the same powertrain options being made available in Europe. For the models offered in the European market, customers have the chance to select between diesel engines and gas-powered ones. They can even choose between the automatic transmission, which is standard, and the manual offered as an option. However for the U.S., only two engines will be offered and both are paired to automatic transmissions.

Specifically for the A5 Sportback, it will be powered with the same 4-cylinder turbocharged engine inside the A4 Sedan, A5 Coupe, and A5 Convertible. The engine has an output at 252 hp with peak torque coming in at 273 lb.-ft. It is paired to the automatic dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. This allows the A5 Sportback to be almost as fast as its two-door counterpart with acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Meanwhile the S5 Sportback has the turbocharged V6 engine capable of 354 hp with top torque of 369 lb.-ft., and paired to the standard automatic 8-speed transmission. With this, the S5 Sportback can go from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

Ride comfort comes courtesy of an updated five-link front suspension and a five-link rear suspension, with adaptive dampers available as an option.

If the R8 E-Tron gets the go signal for it to enter production, it will be equipped with two electric motors that deliver 376 hp and 605 lb-ft of torque. In Iron Man 3, Stark’s girlfriend “Pepper” Potts will also be seen driving the Audi S7.

Audi seems to be dropping manual transmissions for the facelifted S4 and S5 that will come out next year. Some interested buyers have said that they couldn’t get a manual transmission for the 3.0 TDI A5 Sportback. The lack of manual gearboxes for S4 and S5 on the latest configurator at audi.de is also noticeable.

While S-tronic (DSG) transmissions offer quicker shifting, better fuel economy and faster straight line performance, it doesn’t mean that the manual transmission doesn’t have a place in the industry.

That’s because enthusiasts choose the manual because it offers an engaging feel during driving. Many consider it a proper right of passage for a beginner to learn to row the gears while matching the revs.
