Which S5 does Edmunds recommend
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating4.5 / 5
After a decade, the Audi S5 has finally received a full redesign and the wait was well worth it. This new model builds on its predecessor's best traits, including sleek styling, a refined interior and spirited driving dynamics, and takes them to all-new levels.
In almost every metric, this latest coupe is a prime example of how to do it right. It's a blast to drive, yet it doesn't sacrifice luxury and comfort in the process. We're also impressed with the S5's latest batch of technology features. Compared to rival sport coupes such as the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C-Class, the 2018 Audi S5 rises to the top.
trim levels & features
The 2018 Audi S5 is a four-passenger luxury sport coupe that is a high-performance variant of the A5 coupe. It is available in either Premium Plus or Prestige trim levels. Both are powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 (354 horsepower, 369 pound-feet of torque). All-wheel drive is standard, as is an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features for the Premium Plus trim include 18-inch wheels with summer performance tires, automatic LED headlights, automatic wipers, power-folding mirrors with heating, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power front seats (with heating and massage functions), driver-seat memory settings, 40/20/40-split folding rear seats, auto-dimming mirrors and interior ambient lighting.
On the technology front, you also get Bluetooth, a 7-inch infotainment display, a rearview camera, a Wi-Fi hotspot, remote control via a smartphone app, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a 10-speaker audio system with a CD player, satellite and HD radio, two USB ports and dual SD card slots. Additional safety features include low-speed forward collision warning and mitigation, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and Audi Connect Care emergency telematics.
The Prestige trim includes all of the above, along with a virtual instrument panel display, streaming internet radio apps, remote vehicle monitoring via a smartphone app, a bigger 8.3-inch infotainment display, a navigation system, a tracepad feature for infotainment input, a top-down parking camera system and a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium surround-sound system. All of these items are available as options on the Premium Plus trim.
Other options include the S Sport package (red brake calipers, adaptive suspension dampers and sport rear differential); the Warm Weather package (ventilated front seats and extended premium leather upholstery); an adaptive steering system; and a heated steering wheel. The Prestige trim is eligible for the Driver Assistance package that adds traffic-adaptive cruise control, a traffic sign reader, lane departure warning and intervention, and automatic high beams.

The 2018 Audi S5 should appeal to car shoppers wanting something between a traditional entry-level sport coupe and the ultimate high-performance variant. In Audi's case, the S5 is more expensive and capable than the lesser A5, but more attainable than the gonzo RS 5.
Standard feature highlights for the base S5 Premium Plus trim include 18-inch wheels with summer tires, a sunroof, Audi Select drive modes, Audi's MMI infotainment system with a 7-inch display, heated front sport seats with power-adjustable side bolsters and massage functions, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, low-speed forward collision warning and mitigation, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The Prestige trim adds a virtual intrument panel, a head-up display, a surround-view camera system, a navigation system, an 8.3-inch display, a premium Bang & Olufsen audio system and the Audi Connect system (with Wi-Fi hotspot, vehicle monitoring and some remote feature control through an app). All of these items are available as options on the Premium Plus trim.
We recommend adding the S Sport package that includes an adaptive suspension and sport rear differential. Also available is the Driver Assistance package that adds adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and a traffic sign reader.
At the moment, the Mercedes-Benz AMG C43 coupe is the S5's greatest rival and is similarly priced. It also delivers similar thrills behind the wheel. The C43 has a more traditional luxury car feel while the S5 is newer and more futuristic, even though feature content is comparable.
The BMW 440i xDrive coupe is a little less expensive, but in order to make it competitive with either the Audi or the Mercedes, you'd have to add some M Sport options, bringing it in lockstep with the rest. The 440i is somewhat handicapped in this race since it's been around for about four years, placing it in the middle of its projected production life.
For the time being, the 2018 Audi S5 is the class leader. It delivers impressive performance with no discernable sacrifice in comfort or refinement. Use all of Edmunds' available tools to help you find the perfect one.
