2019 Audi RS5 Convertible
2019 Audi RS5 Convertible welcome to audicarusa.com discover New Audi sedans, SUVs & coupes get our expert review. It seems that the rumors were true, as it seems, Audi is actually cooking a first RS5 Sportback. At first glance, it may seem that we are dealing with a fairly standard S5, but the devil is in the details. Those plastic wheel arch extensions are signs of wider tracks while the rear end houses oval exhaust tips reserved only to RS models.
We’ll have to wait patiently to see the real deal as the latest Intel suggests that the RS4 Avant will be the first to see daylight. Most likely the hot wagon will debut next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show, while the RS5 Sportback could debut early next year in the United States, with the Detroit Auto Show in January is a suitable place for the premiere O.

Footwear between Spain and France, the small and landlocked principality of Andorra is covered by more than 180 square kilometres of the Pyrenees mountains. Fewer than 90,000 people call it “home,” but many more flow over their borders to enjoy their tax-free purchases, countless ski resorts, and an extremely friendly income tax code. As winter sees the country’s peaks sheltered in the snow, in summer they are intertwined with lush and green scrubs and encourage a different kind of romping: Exploring the winding two-lane asphalt tapes that climb from the valleys and back down. It was through this scenery and past shops stuffed with their beams with discount liquor that took us the latest Audi RS5 coupe.
For 2019, the RS5 has been updated to mount on Audi’s second-generation MLB platform — the same kit serves under the A4, A5, Q7, and others — and with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-Liter V-6. The V-6 takes the place of the particularly sonorous 4.2-litre Naturally aspirated V-8 that served in the RS5 of the previous generation. The V-6 can be down two cylinders, but the horsepower is unaltered at 450, and the turbos increase the torque of 317 lb-ft to a meaty far away 443 lb-ft and also push the outlet peaks farther down the tachometer. : Maximum power is available at 6700 rpm, 1550 lower than before, and the maximum torque comes on-line at 1900 rpm, a complete 2100 rpm lower.
2019 Audi RS5 Convertible Exterior
Like the new A5 and S5 (and the rest of the Audi lineup, for that matter), the new RS5 Cabriolet will be inspired by the prologue concept that debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2014. The posture is low and wide, emphasized by the very angular headlights that cut at the front in a frowned expression. Prominent hoodliness drive the eye back with a swept-back look, and LEDs are used for the main element of illumination, not to mention the daytime running lights and taillights.
In the profile, the RS5 Cabriolet shares the shoulder line of its younger siblings, which gently rounds over the wheel wells to improve their burnt appearance. The lower character line is raked to give it a forward-leaning aspect. A polished aluminum ring is used for Windows, while a black cloth cover is used in the absence of blue skies.
Look closely, however, and you will see numerous RS-specific styling cues, starting with a unique front grille. This large piece, “Singleframe” wins a aluminum-look surrounding ring similar to the Windows, and uses a bright-black honeycomb mesh insert that is studded with Audi rings and RS5 badging. The “Quattro” logo also makes its appearance, sketched in white. To the corners, we find more RS-specific gear for the bumper, where the large side-outlets delimiter a lower divisor element.
There are also multi-spoke 19-inch wheels that come wrapped in low-profile tyres, while the back gets dual oval exhaust tips and a lip spoiler. Like the new A5, the new body should create less drag at speed, increasing efficiency, although the Cabriolet model will mainly focus on improvements to the lower body and will not see both an increase in the slippery as the Dur ceiling O
Overall, I think it looks pretty good, in a kind of Audi-ISH way. It is simple and somewhat underestimated by similar BMW and Mercedes offers, and fans will surely appreciate subtle improvements over the non-RS equivalent of Audi.
2019 Audi RS5 Convertible Interior
In terms of appearance and design, the cockpit of the new RS5 Cabriolet must mimic that of the new A5 and A4. There will be a long horizontal air vent connecting the sides of the driver and passenger, and the center console shall provide a simplified design scheme with most of the info-entertainment controls migrated to a foot touch screen that Sit up on the board.
Seat capacity will be capped at four. The back bench will offer more space than a traditional 2 + 2, but not a lot of comfort for a full size adult. Meanwhile, the cargo capacity must be decent for a two-door Cabriolet model.
By custom, the adjustment of the material and the finish must be of the highest quality. High-grade leather and Alcantara will be used for upholstery, with dark nuances punctuated by sporty-looking color strips. The carbon fiber trim bits join the usual wood and aluminum junction. The drivers will seize a flat-bottom flywheel set with numerous controls for various drive systems and entertainment, while the seats are highly reinforced for more support during hard cornering. The seats must also come with a heating and cooling function, plus the option for neck heaters.
As for the equipment, wait for Audi booth virtual display for gauge cluster, plus the latest iteration the brand MMI system for entertainment. There must also be support for Apple display and Android auto, Bluetooth connectivity, a wireless phone charger, multiple USB ports, and a Bang & Olufsen stereo. Like the outside, the LEDs will be used for lighting.
Finally, customers should expect all common active security systems, such as adaptive cruise control (with traffic jam assistance), automatic braking, lane assist and rear cross-traffic alert.
2019 Audi RS5 Convertible Engine
When it arrives eventually, it goes without saying RS5 Sportback will use the same Biturbo 2.9-Liter V6 as its two-door brother, the RS5 coupe we had the pleasure to review in June. It is a newly developed engine producing 450 hp (331 kw) and 443 lb-ft (600 Newton-meters) of the torque channeled to a Quattro system with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
In the case of the coupe, it has enough Audi sport muscle for a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) operated in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 174 mph (280 kph). But the Sportback is going to be a little heavier due to its two extra doors, so expect the Sprint to take about 4 seconds. By compared the S5 coupe with the S5 Sportback, the latter is a tenth of a second slower in the Sprint.
While the outgoing RS 5 sports a 4.2-liter natural aspiration V-8, the new model is expected to redouble to the new twin-Turbo 2.9-liter V-6 that debuted in the 2017 Porsche Panamea 4s.

In the Porsche sedan the engine delivers 440 HP but in the new RS 5 The output must be marked beyond the 450 hp of the outgoing model. We hear that it can reach about 500 hp to challenge the 503 hp of C63 s Mercedes-AMG coupe. The traction on all wheels will be standard and the transmission could end up being an 8-speed automatic shared with the S5.
Thanks to the use of the latest MLB platform from the Volkswagen group, look for the new RS 5 to weigh significantly less than its 3,800-pound predecessor. This should help to improve the 0-60 mph time of the outgoing car of 4.5 seconds.
We are waiting for a revelation of the new RS 5 sometime in 2019. Sales in the United States are not expected to start until the following year, however, so we will probably see the car arrive as a model 2019. In addition to the coupe, there will be another Rs 5 Cabriolet and on this occasion you should also see a version of Rs 5 from the United States-Bound A5 Sportback.
2019 Audi RS5 Convertible Price
While the coupe RS5 begins in €80,900 in Germany and an estimated $70,000 in the United States, its most practical counterpart will be more expensive. The reports indicate that the model is directed to the United States unlike the aforementioned Avant, which for some will be the most desirable of the three.
