2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet Pros

The Audi A5 S5 lineup receives a thorough refresh in 2018 offering consumers more powerful engine combinations, muscular looking exterior lines, and award-winning safety technology that sets the standard for luxury automobiles.

2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet Model Highlights

The 2018 Audi A5 and S5 models are offered in coupe or cabriolet body styles. A5 models all come with a 2.0L TFSI 4-cylinder engine, with turbocharging and direct injection, which produces 252 horsepower, while S5 models get a 354-hp, 3.0L turbocharged TFSI V6 engine. Quattro all-wheel drive is the only drivetrain available not that that's a bad thing.

Transmission options vary between the two models. Both the A5 Sportback and Cabriolet only come paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, while the A5 coupe comes with a the choice of the 7-speed dual-clutch or an optional 6-speed manual transmission. S5 models are equipped with an even more outstanding 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission that features 4 separate modes of driving. (Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Individual)

The entire A5 lineup gets Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system, which sends 60 percent of power to the rear wheels under normal driving, to give these models more of a performance character and a more balanced feel in tight corners. S5 models get a sports differential that helps distribute power to further aid performance.

Cabriolets feature a power-folding acoustic soft top that can be operated at speeds of up to 31 mph; it also has enough thermal insulation for winter use, and special attention has been paid to trunk space. Even when folded, the top allows enough trunk space for a couple of small weekend bags. The rear seatbacks can still be folded forward to access more space. The setup also includes LED reading lamps and a heated rear window.

Depending on how much luxury is desired, there are three different trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. S5 models are available only in Premium Plus and Prestige trims.

Premium models of the A5 include a panorama sunroof, heated power mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, heated windshield nozzles, leather upholstery, a power driver's seat, cruise control, 3-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, HomeLink universal remote, Apple CarPlay / Android Auto and a 10-speaker, 180-watt sound system with auxiliary input and SD card slot. Premium Plus trim adds a 505-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 14 speakers, xenon headlamps, LED tail lamps, heated front seats and driver's seat memory settings, among other items.

Key options include the Audi adaptive cruise control, which applies the brakes as necessary to keep a safe following distance, and is packaged together with Audi Side Assist. Heated and ventilated seats are also available. The comfort front seats in the cabriolet circulate warm air at neck level to allow you, perhaps, to have the top down in cooler weather.

The Audi Connect system is also available, utilizing a dedicated Internet connection for the vehicle to form its 4G LTE Wi-Fi network. The system also works with Audi's hard-disc-based navigation system to allow easy streaming Google Earth imagery for maps, live Google Search and live news, traffic and weather. The navigation system includes music-storage capability, while the MMI controller is simple and straightforward.

2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet Model News

The 2018 Audi A5 and its performance variant, the S5, are a family of compact luxury coupes and cabriolets. The biggest differences between the models are oriented around powertrains and performance hardware.

The A5 lineup offers a competitive alternative to the BMW 3-Series, Cadillac CTS coupe and Infiniti Q50 coupe. In S5 form, it offers an excellent compromise between ride, comfort and performance, with 0-60 times of under 5 seconds. With the Audi Connect system and revised MMI controller and its live Google Earth maps, it has one of the best (and best-looking) infotainment systems.
