The Audi S5 Cabriolet provides the best of both worlds – elegance and style as a day-to-day commuter and a car that is equally at home on the race-track- it provides 333-horsepower, good looks, and Audi’s sure-footed “Quattro all-wheel-drive”.
The S5 cabriolet is essentially an open-top version of the S5 Coupe- sharing the coupe’s hardtop’s styling and engine. A mid-cycle update included sleeker headlights, a “single-frame” grille and a more aggressive front fascia.
Equipped with a super-charged 3.0-litre V6 motor that produces 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft, the Cabriolet comes exclusively with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that sends power to all four wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
It can do 0-100 kmh in 5.3 seconds, and fuel economy is rated at 13.06/8.4 litres/100 kms city/highway driving.
- Suspension and styling modifications and more sporting look and feel.
- Larger brakes and a tightened and lowered suspension help the Z-rated tires deliver the uprated power to the street.
- The coddling interior features carbon fiber trim, special seats and a unique steering wheel.
Available Tech Equipment
- Audi’ MMI infotainment interface and
- Audi Connect, which brings in-car internet connectivity and
- Industry-first Google Earth integration – complete with panoramic views and high-resolution 3D satellite and aerial imagery.
The S5 Cabriolet top is a lightweight, insulated cloth folding top rather than a heavier, but more coupe-like, folding metal hardtop. The top can be raised or lowered at speeds of up to 50 kmh, and a head-level heating system enables passengers to drive with the top down in less-than-ideal weather.
