Perhaps with the ubiquity of SUVs, we've forgotten that cars aren't simply about utility. Style matters, and great design connects with us in ways that acres of available cargo space can't. When it comes to emotional appeal, few cars are as striking as the 2021 Audi S5. Whether the S5 is in coupe, convertible or four-door hatchback form, its lines and proportions match its impressive V6-powered performance and sharpened handling.

More powerful and luxurious than its A5 counterpart, the S5 adds about 100 horsepower and some extra standard features such as massaging front seats, heated rear seats and diamond-stitched leather upholstery. While the newly redesigned BMW 4 Series Coupe offers stiff competition, the S5 stirs the soul. Read our Expert Rating below to get our full in-depth take on this year's S5.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The S5 is very balanced for both performance and luxury. It's a beautiful vehicle inside and out and has easy-to-use controls. It's genuinely enjoyable if you want to take it on twisty roads, and it doesn't sacrifice comfort and luxury. It's not perfect — the design compromises rear passenger space and visibility, and the price is a little steep for the top-end Prestige — but it's a highly compelling choice in the class.
We tested an S5 Sportback, which is the four-door hatchback. There's plenty of power from the turbocharged V6, even if it's not immediately explosive off the line. Once on the move, acceleration is swift, steady and satisfying. In Edmunds' track testing, our S5 Sportback test car was able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a rapid 4.3 seconds. The brakes work well to bring all that speed to a halt, offering relatively fade-free performance in dynamic situations, but they're equally easy and smooth-acting during a casual commute.

The S5 is capable around corners too. Our car came equipped with the optional S Sport package. It helps blend the best of all-wheel-drive traction with the nimble feeling of a rear-wheel-drive car. The S5's dynamic steering also feels well matched to whatever drive mode setting you're in.
We continue to be amazed at the balance of the S5 Sportback. Comfort is just as much a priority as performance. The front seats are very supportive and pleasant, and the available heated and ventilated elements work swiftly. The easy-to-use climate control maintains the cabin temperature accurately, and the fans aren't excessively noisy, even on high.

The optional adaptive suspension is a great way to go in the S5 because it offers excellent qualities for multiple scenarios. Comfort mode smooths out rough interstates and broken pavement with ease, while Dynamic mode keeps the body motion in check through spirited driving. The S5 is relatively silent at all speeds and well isolated from both road and wind noise.
Getting in and out of the S5 Sportback's front seats is easy. If you're on the taller side, you might have to duck to get into the rear seats due to the sloping roofline. There's a good amount of room for front occupants plus plenty of adjustment range for the driver. The rear seats are decent in terms of comfort and space for two adults up to about 5-foot-10 or so.

Audi's S5 Sportback doesn't have the dual touchscreen interface that the newer Audis have, but that could be a good thing for some people. Most interior controls are clear, logically placed, and consistent in look and feel. The menu structure for both the digital instrument panel and the touchscreen menu system takes a few uses to learn, though.

Visibility out of the front is decent. The over-the-shoulder view is a bit compromised due to the Sportback design and the thick rear roof pillars. The available surround-view camera system definitely helps when you're backing out of parking spaces.
Audi's 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system's graphics are crisp and vibrant. Audi's Virtual Cockpit, a configurable fully digital instrument panel, is able to display nearly anything you want with as much information you want. The navigation system is straightforward and simple to use. The voice controls work pretty well, and while they're not quite conversational, the commands come close and have a good breadth of functions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is standard.

Most of the S5 Sportback's advanced driver safety aids are optional except on the top Prestige trim, which is a little disappointing. But they all worked smoothly in our testing.
The S5 Sportback has a good amount of room for stuff in the rear cargo area under the hatch. The 40/20/40-split rear seats help give you versatility for odd-sized objects. The load height is reasonable, and the cargo area is free of intrusions.

The storage for small items in the cabin is merely average. There are a couple of small pockets in the center console area with room to keep items like a phone, keys or credit cards. The center console bin can fit a wallet and other similar-size items but nothing much bigger. The cupholders are on the small side, so don't plan to stop for that Big Gulp.
The EPA estimates the S5 Sportback gets 23 mpg in combined driving (20 city/28 highway). This is slightly below average in its competitive class. On our 115-mile mixed-driving evaluation route, we observed 23.5 mpg on 91 octane, indicating the EPA's numbers are realistic. Naturally, more spirited driving could result in fuel economy falling into the mid- to high teens.
Audi's S5 Sportback is well built, which is something we've come to expect from Audi. There are no unsightly gaps, welds or hinges, and the interior is simple but modern. Our only gripe: the piano black surfaces around the shifter and center console area that attract fingerprints. The warranty and ownership experience are decent.

The S5 Sportback is on the pricier side compared to peers when they're similarly equipped. The starting price of $52K isn't bad, but once you equip it thoroughly, it closes in on $70K — which is slightly more than the competition. There's value with the midline trims, but you may miss out on a couple of desired features.
While the S5 Sportback has a sleek profile, its overall design is quite understated. If you want to have some fun, the S5 is capable of delivering it. Power is ample but not overwhelming, and it's well matched to the Audi's handling capability. It engages you and once you're done having fun, you ease off and enjoy it purely as a luxury sedan.

Which S5 does Edmunds recommend?

The base S5 Premium is tempting, but you need to add the optional Convenience package to get features such as keyless entry, driver-seat memory function and satellite radio — features that should really come standard. As such, we say spend a little more for the Premium Plus trim. It includes the Convenience package features along with some other appealing extras such as adaptive cruise control.

Audi S5 models

The 2021 Audi S5 is the high-performance counterpart to the A5. Compared to the A5's four-cylinder engine, the S5 comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (349 horsepower, 369 lb-ft of torque) paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive.

The S5 is similarly offered in coupe, convertible (Cabriolet) and four-door hatchback (Sportback) body styles. The coupe and convertible seat four, while the Sportback accommodates five. The S5 is available in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige.

Premium
The S5 Premium base trim comes well equipped with:

  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Sport suspension
  • LED headlights
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Power liftgate (Sportback)
  • Three-zone automatic climate control
  • Leather and faux suede combination upholstery
  • Power-adjustable, heated front sport seats
  • LED ambient cabin lighting
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated toll road transponder

Technology and safety features include:

  • 10.1-inch central touchscreen
  • Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay smartphone connections
  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane departure warning (alerts you if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane)

The optional Convenience package for the Premium trim adds:

  • Auto-dimming side mirrors
  • Keyless entry
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Driver-seat memory functions
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Satellite radio
  • Blind-spot monitoring (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)
  • Rear cross-traffic alert (warns you if a vehicle behind you is about to cross your vehicle's path while you're in reverse)

Premium Plus
Moving up one tier to the Premium Plus gets you the features of the Convenience package as standard plus:

  • Digital instrument panel
  • Driver-seat memory functions
  • Simulated leather-wrapped center console and armrests
  • Wireless charging pad with a signal booster
  • Rear USB charge ports (Sportback only)
  • Surround-view camera system (gives you a top-down view of the S5 and its surroundings for tight parking situations)
  • Adaptive cruise control (maintains a driver-set distance between the S5 and the car in front)
  • Lane keeping assist (steers the S5 back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)

Prestige
The Prestige trim maxes out the tech and comfort features, adding:

  • Upgraded headlights
  • 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system
  • Heated rear seats
  • Navigation system
  • Head-up display
  • Automated parking system (steers into a parking spot with little or no driver intervention)

The Premium Plus and Prestige trims can also be equipped with several options, including:

  • S Sport package
    • Adaptive suspension dampers
    • Sport rear differential
  • Warm Weather package
    • Different sport seats with ventilation but without massage
    • Leather upholstery
    • Neck heaters (convertible only)
  • Black Optic package
    • 20-inch wheels
    • High-performance summer tires
    • Black exterior trim accents
  • Premium leather upholstery
  • Dynamic steering (changes steering ratio for higher or lower effort based on speed)
  • Bang & Olufsen premium sound system

5/5 stars, Perfect blend of performance & luxury
Eric Gokcen,
Prestige quattro 4dr Hatchback AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Have had the car for a month and love everything about it. Just came off of a Mercedes C43 AMG convertible which was a much harsher ride with a more high revving engine sound. The S5 is more of the V8 rumble and feels more powerful even though the numbers are similar. Handles extremely well but also absorbs the bumps nicely. The layout of the interior is perfect. Really excellent car in every way.
5/5 stars, So far so great
James Swain,
Prestige quattro 4dr Hatchback AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Writing an early review. Had my 2021 s5 for a month and am so impressed. I know this is early and will add more later but what a great car. Fit and finish are incredible. The Navarro blue paint is spectacular. Way better color to see in person. The tech takes a bit to get everything I wanted but once that is finished...so great. The acceleration is amazing. No reason to step up to the RS for an extra 20K. I disagree with Edmonds that the prestige plus is the way to go. With prestige, you get all the bells and whistles for just a little bit more. More to come...
5/5 stars, Great car!
Johan,
Premium Plus quattro 4dr Hatchback AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
I’m very pleased with the S5, traded in my Porsche Macan for the Audi. No regrets, the Macan was a great car, but the S5 is so much more fun to drive. Most people tend to buy crossovers/ SUV nowadays, but I think the driving experience in a Sportback is hard to beat.
5/5 stars, My first Audi car!
Luis Manuel Soto,
Premium Plus quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
I came from Mercedes Benz C250 Coupe 2012, Lexus IS 2014, MB C300 AMG 2016, BMW M240i 2019 and now the Audi S5 2021 Premium Plus for around a month and I need to tell you this Audi have the best of the C series (Interiors look and materials) and the best from the M240i (Performance and Fun to drive). It's a great combination between performance and luxury. Best of both worlds.

Audi S5 vs. BMW 4 Series

The 4 Series gets a full makeover for 2021 and the results are, well, distinct. The new BMW's styling won't suit everyone's tastes, but it's hard to disagree with the performance. The M440i's six-cylinder makes 382 horsepower, better than the S5's numbers, and its overall handling and ride comfort are exemplary. The S5 is no slouch on a winding road either, and it's arguably got more personality and a sharper interior.

Audi S5 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is due for an upgrade, and it's likely we'll see a new C-Class next year. A new coupe may not arrive until 2023, however, so until then the current AMG C 43 isn't a bad way to pass time. Its turbocharged V6, classy interior and sporty handling upgrades make it a more elegant rival to the more flamboyant S5. The Benz costs more, especially when you start checking the options boxes, but the AMG C 43 is the way to go if you want understated luxury sport coupe performance.

Audi S5 vs. Genesis G70

The Genesis G70 has four doors, and though it's not technically a coupe, its swept-back profile and cozy rear seat make it not unlike the Audi S5 Sportback. Interior materials are surprisingly high-quality, especially on upper trims, and performance is strong enough to hang with the European stalwarts. As a bonus, a fully loaded G70 with a twin-turbo V6 costs slightly less than a base S5.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Audi S5?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
