Audi India has announced the launch of second-generation RS5 coupe on April 11, 2018 in the country. Being the high-performance derivative of A5 coupe, it would join the existing A5 'Brat Pack' which comprises of Sportback and convertible variants. Audi RS5 Coupe would directly rival the BMW M4, which comes at a sticker price of Rs. 1.33 Crore (Ex. Showroom) in the Indian market. The new-gen RS5 Coupe would come with both cosmetic as well as mechanical updates in India.

Audi India has announced price hike across its entire lineup by 4 percent from April 1, 2018!

The 2018 Audi RS5 Coupe would boast of aggressive styling, while riding on 19-inch alloy wheels as standard and 20-inch alloy wheels as optional. Inside the cabin, there would be a plethora of RS elements such as sport seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, Alcantara leather upholstery, sport pedals and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument system. All the aforementioned RS components distinguish it from the standard A5 models. It is still unclear whether it would be offered with the optional RS Dynamic package which comes with multiple lightweight components in form of carbon-fibre roof and sport exhaust system, which result in the overall reduction of weight of the coupe by 60 kgs.

Mechanically, the RS5 coupe would be powered by a new 2.9L twin-turbo V6 petrol engine which would replace the current model's 4.2L naturally aspirated V8 engine. The engine, despite being comparatively smaller in size, would develop top power of 450bhp and peak torque of 600Nm (higher by 170Nm). The engine would be linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission with power transmitted to all the four wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The coupe would reach the 100kmph mark from standstill in a mere 3.9 seconds, which is half a second quicker than the ongoing model. It would have an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph, which can be further enhanced to 280kmph by opting for RS Dynamic package.
