2012 Audi S5 Overview
Adding some performance bite to the A5’s smooth style, the 2012 Audi S5 delivers sporty performance as both a coupe and a convertible.
Based on the A5, the S5 mirrors that car very closely when it comes to features and appearance except for one very important difference which is found under the hood. Cabriolet (convertible) versions of the S5 get the 333-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 you’ll also find in the S4, while the news is even better for coupe versions of the S5; they feature a 354-horsepower, direct injection 4.2-liter V-8. The Cabriolet’s engine is mated to a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission, while the Coupe offers a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system is optional on the Cabriolet and standard on the Coupe.
Fuel economy ratings range from 14-16 mpg in the city to 22-24 mpg on the highway depending on your drivetrain/transmission and body type choices.
From the outside, there are a few visual cues the separate the S5 from the A5, including quad exhaust pipes, larger wheels, and a read deck lid spoiler. The S5 Cabriolet features an acoustic cloth top for keeping the interior quiet and it can retract in 15 seconds when travelling at speeds of up to 30 mph.
Inside, the S5 gets a unique interior treatment that includes S-design sport seats with silk nappa leather that offer better lateral support so you won’t slide around during aggressive cornering. Standard features include Home Link® remote transmitter, three-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth® connectivity, iPod interface, and driver seat memory. The S5 can also be upgraded with plenty of advanced technology, like Audi’s MMI Navigation plus system that can display 3D topographical maps and a Bang & Olufsen® sound system.
Standard safety features on the 2012 S5 include antilock brakes with brake assist, a full suite of airbags, LATCH rear seating, and electronic stability control.
