Audi introduced the revised second generation of the A5 Sportback in 2020, during the world pandemic.
Along with the rest of the range, the S5 was enhanced as well.
Ever since the introduction of the Audi A5, the S version captured the attention of petrolheads around the world. Its four-door coupe silhouette, the sloped shaped, and the performances were significant acquisition arguments. The S5 was more than a car for five; it was a sports car for a family.
The 2020 version of the S5 came equipped with full-LED headlights fitted as standard and new, single-frame grille design. It resembled the honeycomb grille from the mighty Audi Sport Quattro from 1984. Unlike its famous ancestor, the 2020 model didn’t feature four rectangular headlamps, but only two wider ones. They were available with Matrix-LED or laser to enhance the view on the road. The sloped roofline remained the same, and so it was the tailgate with the retractable wing. In the back, under the bumper, the oval quad exhaust offered a sporty sound.
The interior was upgraded as well. A large, 10.1” touch-screen display was used for the new MIB3 infotainment system. Audi claimed that the new unit’s reaction time was ten times faster than the outgoing MIB2 device, which was already known for its responsiveness. The system allowed voice commands.
The 2020 S5 was fitted with a 3.0-liter V6 TFSI unit. Due to the turbocharged direct fuel-injection system, the engine offered 349 hp. It was mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox and sent the power in all four corners.
