The 2018 Audi S5 Sport back is Audi’s resolve to revive the market for the hatchbacks. This car has power, style and is fairly priced. The S5, now available at $55, 375 is powered by a 354 hp turbocharged 3.0 litre V-6 engine. The Quattro All-wheel drive system and its eight speed automatic transmission is similar to what we saw in its predecessors. It

It doesn’t, however, have manual transmission. It can reach 60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds and clocks an impressive 10.9 second in reaching 100 miles per hour. The ZF-supplied gearbox takes advantage of the 369 lb-ft of torque allowing an rpm as low as 1370 rpm and as high as 4500 rpm.

You will have no issues with turbo lag if you are driving in Dynamic mode or you have switched to first gear by manually selecting via the paddle shifters. It might become a bit annoying if you use the car in its Comfort Setting. The Dynamic setting analyses recent driving style history to give us the performance we need.

Exterior and interior:

2018 Audi S5

The Audi S5 Sport back is a real charmer on the streets. It is more visually appealing than its two door predecessors. The roofline is tapered and the window line is kinked to cater to the visual delight of the customers. The Tango Red paint is enough to grab your eyeballs. With 22 cubic feet of cargo space, this is comfortably spacious.

However in terms of headroom and legroom, the S4 scores better. The ergonomics of the car is breath taking and entertainment is served via the 7 inch unit infotainment screen. The screen controls are easily accessible for the driver. An on board navigation system, 360 degree view camera system, LED interior lighting, Virtual Cockpit are the additional features worth a mention here. It has adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and the cosy seats are adorned with quilted leather.

The Audi S5 is a great performer in the road whatever mode it is driven on. In terms of fuel efficiency, the S5 is rather frugal. In a 75 mph highway fuel economy test, the car could do 33 miles per gallon which scores more than the EPA’s rating by 3 miles. But the weakest part of this car has to be the steering. The S5 becomes prone to understeer if driven spiritedly. This is because of the weight distribution with 56 percent on its nose.

However the red brake callipers and adaptive dampers allow the driver to enjoy a firm ride and avoid the possible jerks.

There is ample leg space and knee room for the passengers though the third row is much compact than its competitors like Chevrolet Traverse and Toyota Highlander. On the looks aspect, it has come with some overhaul and redesigning to enter into the stylish class of the Tucson and Elantra. With the spoilers, alloys, sunroof, LED lights and other attractive nuances, the 2018 Audi S5 stands out as one of the most impressive looking sports backs out there.


Bottom line:

This car is surely going to revive the hatchback market and remove people’s apprehension towards hatchbacks. It is totally worth the price at which this car is available right now. A little more additions to that budget will allow you to enjoy luxury along with great performance. This is a highly capable car and you cannot get your eyes off this one.

The correct dynamic mode will allow you to enjoy the ride you always have imagined on the speedway.
