Audi RS5 Overview

Audi as an automaker is renown for creating cars that have a legacy to themselves. Be it sports vehicles or utility vehicles, Audi has always been on the forefront of innovation and technology over the years. And when such an automaker comes up with a new coupe that has slight shadows of a sedan, the world better look up because it might just be the night game changer in the market. The car in discussion is the Audi RS5. Equipped with a 4.2 L Audi’s signature FSI Quattro engine, the car offers performance and class that can only be dreamed by many automakers around the world. Audi apparently targeted the mid range luxury car segment with this car.
This vehicle has all the specs of a limousine range car yet the modesty of a regular sedan or coupe. One needs to see the single side door to tell whether the vehicle is sedan or a coupe such is the design brilliance of the vehicle. With striking looks and an even more appealing performance, the vehicle took no time in raising hopes among the automobile fraternity.

Audi RS5 Exterior

It is a futile task to try to appreciate the beauty of an Audi’s exterior because the wise have spoken time and again about it that anything said now would just be a repetition, such is the consistency of the design beauty of Audi. One can hardly pin point a single curve that could have been made different or even a single aerodynamic feature that would be better some other way. Because the engineers down at Audi make sure only the best of best reaches the customer.
The front section of the vehicle looks remarkably sleek with the signature Audi front grille having a rather smaller are to conquer than usual. The four intersecting circles shine bright on the grille. The headlamps are low battery consuming and come in a perfect shape as the eyes of a cheetah. The air vents are beautifully positioned under the headlights over the front bumper which is the same as the whole body since it blends as a part of it. The front fascia also consists of smoke headlamps. The side profile creates the quintessential Audi design school with swift strokes at the sides for perfect aerodynamic flow and the wheel arches, etc. created in an almost seamless design. The sun roof in the top makes things even better by not just offering great ambience to the interiors but also interesting addition to the exterior beauty. The fog lights are also provided in the rear section along with the rear window defogger and rain sensing wiper on front windshield to help the vehicle commute in all atmospheric conditions. All in all, with two doors, the Audi RS 5 is a coupe to be longed for.

Audi RS5 Interior

When Audi makes a car, it is more like creating a sculptor. With every corner and every edge of the car masterfully designed, Audi RS 5 takes the car’s interiors and makes them a standard for luxury.
The controls are driver focussed and the slight hood that covers the instrument panel behind the steering wheel and extends to the AC vent make its territory description quite obvious. The steering wheel sports a few options of control however it does not stop the vehicle from loosing its elegance. Being a true designer Audi knows when to over do and when to settle for minimal art. The vehicle comes with a best in class air conditioner, heater, digital odometer, beautifully designed ergonomic seats in the front and the rear, tachometer, leather steering wheel and adjustable steering column and the obvious space that it offers in the interiors. The vehicle’s length is 4649 mm and the height is 1366 mm. Both of which assure a spacious leg room and head room.

Audi RS5 Engine & Transmission

Audi RS 5, unlike its cousins comes with only a petrol variant in India. The car is offered with the innovative FSI engine. The trick in this technology is that is injects the fuel directly into the combustion chamber where it gets highly compressed creating a consistent mix of fuel and air so the performance would be rather fluid without any bumps. The same direct injection also helps in cooling the combustion chamber which in turn increases the engine compression, resulting in higher output and impressive torque.
Audi claims that the engine responds quickly to the slightest touch to the throttle. With a whopping 430 Nm torque generated at 4000 rpm to 6000 rpm, the car assures to go to revs as high as 8500 rpm which, by regular coupe standards, is way off the charts. The vehicle also has an amazing pickup with the Audi RS 5 reaching 100 kmph mark in just 4.6 seconds from which it rides effortlessly like wind. The car also comes with an automatic transmission system which makes driving even more effortless. The car also gives a maximum output of 438 bhp at 8250 rpm. With four valves per cylinder, this V8 engine sure takes driving to a whole new level.

Audi RS5 Mileage

Running on petrol expecting the car to offer outstanding mileage, despite the exceptional performance is nothing short of a sin. Though Audi RS 5 offers compelling performance, it does manage to give out decent mileage though. The coupe offers 5.6 kmpl mileage on city roads while the same on highways reaches 9 kmpl. However the 65 litre fuel tank capacity makes up for the mileage by allowing the vehicle to run for miles without sweat.

Audi RS5 Braking and Safety

Audi RS 5 comes with best in class braking system which includes Anti lock Braking System, EBD, clutch lock, Brake Assist, Engine Immobiliser to name a few. However it’s the safety that truly steals the show. The Audi RS 5 comes with strategically positioned airbags in the front, rear, to the side, etc. The coupe also offers crash sensor to avoid any collision impact before hand. Other than these standard packages such as Power Door Locks, adjustable seats, seat belts for the rear passengers, door ajar warning, engine check warning, child safety locks come in handy.

Audi RS5 Performance and Handling

Audi RS 5 comes with the innovative S tronic gearbox that offers the best of manual and automatic transmission. While the system gives the smooth, effortlessness of an automatic it also packs in the low fuel consumption philosophy of a manual transmission system. The vehicle comes with several other features in terms of performance, for instance the brake assist helps the manoeuvring of the vehicle in the most remote and rigid of terrains. The real credit probably goes to the fuel choice. Offered with a petrol engine, the car manages to offer exceptionally good performance at a fraction of the cost compared to diesel. With a brilliant suspension system and chassis in place, Audi RS 5 is a delight for all time.

What do we think about Audi RS5?

If you can spend an extra pack of money, go for Audi A8 L. While the coupe is all comfortable and remarkable in design and features, it still remains not so practical a solution for the Indian roads or families in general. If you are however looking at style statement, look no further for Audi RS 7 is as good as a luxury coupe from Audi can get.

Audi RS5 Competitors

Audi RS 5 has an in house key competitor in the form of Audi A8 and Audi A8 L. Offered in similar appeal, though these two fall under the category of sedans, they do give a tough time for Audi A8 L due to their similar and slightly more flexible features. In other companies, BMW M4 and Mercedes Benz C63 AMG can be seen as potential competitors.
