Pure driving pleasure, especially with the top down. That’s what the new Audi S5 Cabriolet stands for. Its appealing sportiness is also reflected in the new design language and the standard, S-specific elements: at the front, the S bumper, the radiator grille in honeycomb look in matte titanium black with inserts in matte aluminum silver, the wide air inlets in the frame and the blade in matte aluminum silver. On the side, the 19-inch wheels project out from the S sport suspension. Exterior mirrors in matte aluminum silver and the door sill trim illuminated at the front with the S emblem accentuate the sporty line. At the rear, the S diffuser with wraparound trim in matte aluminum silver, the S-specific twin tailpipes in chrome and the S rear spoiler turn heads. When closed, the soft top blends elegantly into the design. While driving at up to 50 km/h, it can be opened within 15 seconds and closed within 18 seconds.
Matrix LED headlights are standard equipment on the Audi S5 Cabriolet TFSI. As an option, you can also have Matrix LED headlights, including Audi laser light. The Audi laser light complements the LED high beam from a speed of 70 km/h. Because it has almost twice the range of the LED high beam, it provides noticeably more safety. Also included in this lighting package are the dynamic lighting effects of the Coming and Leaving Home functions as well as the dynamic flashing light.
In the interior of the Audi S5 Cabriolet TFSI, S-specific elements such as the standard S sport seats, the standard inlays in matte brushed aluminum and the flat bottom leather steering wheel in 3-spoke design with multifunction plus, S emblem and contrasting stitching pick up on the sporty exterior. Pronounced horizontally styled elements, high-quality materials and the state-of-the-art infotainment stage create an especially spacious feel. With the hood closed, the luggage compartment has a volume of 370 litres.
The digital world of the Audi S5 Cabriolet TFSI can be operated on the optional intuitive 10.1-inch MMI touch display – for instance with the optional MMI navigation plus – with haptic feedback. Thanks to customizable operation, intuitive menu guidance and driver-oriented display, the optional Audi virtual cockpit with its 12.3-inch full HD display also dispenses with unnecessary complexity while providing an overview of the key vehicle data. In the S-specific view the rev counter is the focus of the display.
With its 3.0-liter TFSI engine (Combined fuel consumption: 12.2–9.1 l/100 km; Combined CO2 emissions: 209 g/km) with 260 kW (354 hp) and maximum torque of 500 Nm, the Audi S5 Cabriolet TFSI puts compelling performance onto the road: from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h. Add to that the captivating driving sensation of the quattro all-wheel drive with sport differential, which distributes the drive torque actively and variably between the axles, combined with the convenience of the dynamic steering, which constantly adapts the steering ratio and steering force to the vehicle's speed.
