2020 Audi A5 Quattro Premium, 2.0 TFSI quattro
The 2020 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, Cabriolet and Coupe only come paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. 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.
The 2020 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.
