Although it's scheduled for a long-overdue major redesign next year, the 2017 Audi S5 is still very much in the running for shoppers in the market for a luxury coupe with decent power, sporty handling and a nicely appointed interior. Although some may find the exterior styling dated, buyers who are partial to sleek, flowing lines will appreciate the S5's classic form.
With an all-new model on the horizon, the 2017 S5 has undergone only minor updates. Changes include a few new exterior elements, a three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, standard front and rear parking sensors, and paddle shifters for vehicles equipped with the Tiptronic automatic transmission.
The only available powerplant is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that generates 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. In the coupe, it comes mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox, with a seven-speed automatic transmission available as an option. In the convertible model, the automatic transmission is standard. Both body styles feature Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive.
The S5's stylish interior features premium leather and Alcantara seating surfaces, brushed aluminum inlays and other quality materials. And although technology may come up short in comparison to some of its more recently updated competitors, the S5 does feature the Audi MMI infotainment system, which includes premium audio and Bluetooth wireless capability. Front seat occupants will appreciate the comfortable, supportive seats and generous legroom, but adults sitting in back will find the space a bit on the stingy side, as is not uncommon with many sport coupes.
On the road, the S5 exhibits a good balance between comfort and performance. A rigid chassis, lightweight components and an advanced multilink suspension setup contribute to tight, responsive handling, and yet the smooth ride and effortless power delivery make long trips or running errands a very pleasant driving experience. All-wheel drive helps ensure solid traction in a variety of road conditions.
Fuel economy for the Audi S5 equipped with the manual transmission is EPA rated at 21 mpg combined (18 city/28 highway). Opting for the automatic transmission reduces the rating a bit to 20 mpg combined (17 city/26 highway).
The S5, in coupe or convertible form, comes well equipped, with such standard features as automatic climate control, heated front seats and automatic headlights. A number of packages and standalone options are available to allow buyers to add their own personal touches. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the right 2017 Audi S5 to best meet your needs.
