Introduction

Redesigned, the 2018 Audi A5 and S5 models get new platforms, engines, styling, technology, and safety features. And there is a new model, a sexy Sportback that’s been available in Europe for some time. Actually, make that two models, because the Sportback comes as a high-performance S5 as well.

That makes three body styles available: two-door Coupe, four-door Sportback hatch, and sporty two-door Cabriolet convertible. Each comes in A5 and S5 tune.

The A5 improves on all levels, especially power, handling, and looks. It’s the best A5 ever, as any redesigned model should be. It presents a comfortable ride, balanced handling, and a strong engine having a subdued note.

The A5 is built on platforms and running gear of the A4 sedan and Q5 crossover. Every A5 has the bombproof and totally refined Quattro all-wheel drive, with the coupe getting Quattro Ultra that improves fuel mileage by cutting drive to the rear wheels.

The A5 uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo making 252 horsepower teamed with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, or a six-speed manual in coupes. It hits zero to sixty in 5.7 seconds and gets an EPA Combined 27 miles per gallon. Every A5 has a Drive Select system with modes to relax the dynamics or sharpen the edge.

The S5 with its 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 accelerates from zero to 60 in 4.4 seconds, and gets 24 miles per gallon Combined. It uses an eight-speed twin-clutch transmission.

The redesigned platform has moved the engine farther back in the chassis to improve the balance, and lost some weight to improve the handling. It’s sportier than before, although the true sports sedan and hatch is the S5. Or take the big leap to the track-ready RS 5.

For 2018 Audi A5 adds safety technology, with forward collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alerts, and active lane control.

Lineup

Audi A5 comes as a coupe, convertible and the new Sportback. Standard equipment includes leather seats, automatic climate control, MMI infotainment system, and ambient interior lighting. Options include navigation, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, Audi’s high-tech virtual cockpit digital instrument cluster, adaptive dampers, and 4G LTE data services with WiFi hotspot.

The S5 comes in the same models, in Premium Plus and Prestige trim. Premium Plus includes S sport seats with a diamond-quilted pattern, front seat massagers, automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, 18-inch wheels with summer 245/40 summer tires, LED headlights, leather seating with Alcantara inserts on the doors, a 7.0-inch driver information screen, and 7.0-inch infotainment screen.

Eight airbags are standard, along with a rearview camera and parking sensors. Also standard is Audi’s active safety suite called Pre sense city, which can slow or stop the car if a head-on crash is imminent.

Walkaround

The A5 coupe styling is elegant, understated and sleek, with muscular haunches. It sets the styling benchmark for coupes. The 2018 redesign doesn’t change its looks much at all, maybe just sharpens the edges.

The devastating lines of the new Sportback flow like those of the gorgeous A7. Its wheelbase is a bit longer than the coupe or convertible. The roof is low like the coupe’s, but stretched into a hatchback, sleeker than the BMW 3 Series GT. The Sportback skips the chrome frame around the windows, a plus in our book.

The S5 fastback sedan has been restyled and sharpened from nose to tail, on the same measurements. The nose is lower and the headlamps higher, creating a look like a furrowed brow. The hood gets more demonstrative creases. The character line along the side of the car gets some starch. In direct light, it casts a shadow that makes the body look longer.

Interior

The classy A5 cabin has horizontal lines and uses low-gloss black plastics with the wood or metal trim. Paddle-shifters for the transmission are standard, but they’re small and disappointingly made of plastic. One competitor for the S5 Sportback might be the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which has big beautiful metal paddles.

The tech features are added in a cohesive manner, not confusing or futuristic. The rotary dial for MMI interface with center screen is something Audi owners are used to, blessed buttons instead of a touchscreen. The MMI is fairly easy to use, but connecting an iPhone is more difficult without a touchscreen.

There’s an optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster Audi calls a virtual cockpit. It gives the cabin a look of state of the art.

In the S5 coupe, one of our tall testers couldn’t get his head low enough for comfortable visibility, given the tall driver’s seat and low roof; rearward visibility was worse, with the thick C-pillars creating big blind spots. Blind-spot monitors are optional but would be useful in all models.

We haven’t had a chance for seat time in the A5 sedan, but in the coupe at least, the rear passengers will be squeezed with only 32.7 inches of legroom.

The coupe has an adequate 11.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, less in the convertible of course because of mechanism: 9.3 cubic feet with the roof down. If it’s cargo space you need, the Sportback brings you 17 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is new, making 252 horsepower which is 30 more than before. It’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic manual transmission that’s the best in the business, with shifts that are smooth and quick. With the coupe, a six-speed manual is available.

The engine has sharp throttle response, being absent of turbo lag or drama, and accelerates from zero to sixty in a satisfying 5.7 seconds.

The A5’s Drive Select offers Comfort, Normal, Dynamic, and Individual (custom) modes for the for the steering, suspension, transmission, and throttle. In the appropriate mode, the steering is sharp and direct, and the handling is balanced. The ride is comfortable and composed. It’s sporty and fun to drive, although its mission is meant to be more sedate than that; the adrenaline is saved for the S5, which adds torque vectoring to help the car rotate in turns.

The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 in the S5 makes a whumping 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, to drive the car to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. It’s a twin-scroll turbo designed to reduce lag and deliver a broad torque band. The torque comes on strong at 1350 stays there to 4500 rpm. It’s a fantastic passing machine on two-lanes.

The eight-speed automatic is quick and tight, and the Quattro all-wheel drive splits the torque 60/40 rear/front. New in 2018 is an available rear differential that moves the torque from side to side, as needed in cornering.

Some of the weight loss in the 2018 comes from the use of aluminum components in the five-link rear suspension.

A sport package lowers the car by nearly one inch. It includes adjustable dampers, the new rear differential, and red brake calibers. It can be set from Comfort to Dynamic, with an Auto mode making it easy for the driver. Even in Dynamic mode, the S5 doesn’t feel harsh or high-strung.

Summary

The 2018 A5 succeeds as redesigns are supposed to, with better looks, more power, and sharper handling. The new Sportback model is a very welcome addition; it brings the line alive. The S5, with its powerful twin-scroll V6 turbo, succeeds as a grand touring machine all the way.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
