Audi’s S5 represents a happy marriage of luxury and performance. The 2015 S5 impresses with its opulent cabin and sporty handling, and it provides a generous lineup of technology features.
The 2015 Audi S5 is a compact car that’s a high-performance variant of the brand’s A5 model, and it’s available as a coupe or a convertible. Both body styles seat four and come in Premium Plus and Prestige trims. All models are equipped with all-wheel-drive.
For 2015, the S5 carries over with no significant changes.
Attractive and athletic, the S5’s sheet metal boasts clean lines and discreet European style. The overall look is sculpted and sleek, and pronounced fenders add subtle assertiveness to the car’s appearance.
Base models are equipped with 18-inch wheels, xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, front and rear fog lights and heated auto-dimming side mirrors. All coupes come with a sunroof, and all convertibles are equipped with a folding roof that deploys when the car is moving at speeds of up to 31 mph. The lineup of available features includes adaptive headlights, 19-inch wheels, a blacked-out grille and black exterior accents.
The S5’s cabin is posh without being overly fussy. A driver-focused cockpit reinforces the sporty nature of the S5, and high-quality materials help give the interior an air of understated elegance. With the top stowed, the cabriolet still manages 10.2 cubic feet of trunk room, and the coupe’s storage space measures 12.2 cubic feet. Folding rear seatbacks in both body styles add extra versatility.
Standard equipment includes tri-zone automatic climate control, a three-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel, brushed aluminum trim, heated eight-way power-adjustable front seats, driver memory functions and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Coupes come with upholstery crafted from leather and simulated suede, while convertibles feature standard Nappa leather upholstery. Options include ventilated front seats and perforated Milano leather upholstery.
Driving the S5, you get the best of both worlds. This Audi’s smooth ride quality makes it an amenable daily driver, while vigorous acceleration and precise steering are on hand to provide thrilling performance when you need it. A six-speed manual transmission standard on the coupe, and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is optional. With the convertible, the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is the only transmission offered. All S5 models come standard with all-wheel drive.
Both body styles are motivated by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that cranks out 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy for the 2015 Audi S5 tops out at an EPA-estimated 18/28 mpg city/highway.
The S5’s range of technology content is generous. Base models come with keyless entry and ignition, satellite radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a CD/MP3 player and a 10-speaker sound system.
Available amenities include navigation, voice control, HD radio, a Bang & Olufsen stereo, Bluetooth streaming audio, a rearview camera, a blind-spot warning system, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, a 7-inch display, mobile Wi-Fi and forward collision warning with low-speed automatic braking.
