Audi S5 Sportback launched in India

 

 

 

The big German three are pulling out all the stops on their performance car launches in the country and the latest car to jump on the high horsepower bandwagon is the Audi S5. Launched at Rs 62.95 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi, the S5 is powered by a 3.0-litre TFSI V6 developing 333PS of power and 440Nm of torque. 0-100kmph comes in just 5.1 seconds and top speed is limited to 250kmph.

 

The RS7 houses a fully manic V8 as does the RS5 and in these cars, performance gets precedent over comfort, convenience and efficiency. The S5 chooses middle ground between the sedan ‘A’ range and the mental ‘RS’ variants, much like the S4 and S6. It will be an easier car to live with on a daily basis with its easier controls and softer suspension. 

 

The S5 gets Quattro drive and the S Sport suspension and 18 inch wheels are standard fitment. The S5 gets new lights compared to the A5 which is quite attractive with its large broken loop LED inserts. The styling otherwise is not as muscular and outlandish as RS variants. You do get strong haunches and a large gaping chrome grille sporting the S5 logo, grey wing mirrors, chunky five spoke alloy wheels and two double barrel chrome tipped exhausts.
