- Stonking performance
- Effortlessly usable
- Practical four doors and comfortable cabin
Could be Better
- Not as exciting as its rear-wheel-drive rivals
- Not a sensible buy over the credible S5 Sportback
- Low ground clearance and stiff ride
With an extra set of doors, the whole aura around the Audi RS5 Coupe now revolves around being an intoxicating drive for more occupants.
It’s like Bruce Banner – is green, has a doctorate, and will smash!
Engine and Performance
It’s a ‘hot V’ this one, which means the two turbos are positioned between the 90-degree banks of the V6 with the exhaust manifold pointing towards the inside. This layout allows a compact construction, shorter gas flow paths with minimal flow losses, and better heat management. But more importantly, it improves the response from the Porsche-developed 2.9-litre engine at the drop of the pedal. And that becomes apparent in its surreal standing quarter and acceleration times. Audi claims a 0-100kmph time of 3.9 seconds, and seeing how the RS5 launches itself off the mark it isn’t hard to believe either. Especially once you witness the four-door sedan defying the laws of physics, launching itself off the line.
Despite the fact that it can manage to rearrange your internals at the drop of the dime – when you aren’t pushing the RS5, it drives like any other Audi. Not only is it comfortable, but the RS5 Sportback is also fairly usable at any driving scenario you can imagine putting it through. Dropping kids to school – check, office commutes – check, getting groceries – check, taking the family for weekend outings - check, blowing competitions to smithereens at drag strips or setting blistering lap times on your favourite racetrack – double-check.
It’s surprising how there’s no launch control on this 444bhp sports sedan and yet it disappears into the horizon quicker than you can say ‘Vorsprung Durch Technik’. In our V-box test, the RS5 did a 0-100kmph in 3.79 seconds – and that’s in drenched road condition, imagine the time on a grippier dry tarmac. Sending all of the 600Nm twisting force to the Quattro permanent all-wheel-drive system is an eight-speed ‘Tiptronic’, which is a classic torque-converter automatic transmission. Although, there are three drive modes to choose from – Auto, Comfort and Dynamic – the changes done to the drive system are barely noticeable. Pull the lever to S and there’s an improved throttle response, steering weight up slightly, and a bit harder snarling of the motor– but that’s pretty much it. It doesn’t need those gimmicks in the first place.
Despite being effortlessly quick, the predictable and linear power delivery makes the RS5 usable as a four-seater runabout. Unlike its arch-nemesis, the BMW M4, it won’t spoil the driver’s pants each time he/she goes hard on the throttle. It won’t even wiggle its tail unnecessarily. And won’t make the driver call out the creator when he/she makes a mistake. No matter how hard one tries, it is difficult to unsettle the Quattro and make it lose its grip.
Ride and Handling
We weren’t able to get the RS5 to the twisting mountain roads in the little time it was with us. But as mentioned earlier, this Four Rings grips as surreally as it accelerates. There’s a nice weight to the steering that feels natural and effortless at slow speeds. Manoeuvring the 444bhp monster through city traffic is easier than one can comprehend. Get up to highway speeds and the responsive steering helps slither through as easily as a hot knife through butter. It’s communicative too. You are aware of what the wheels are doing at any given point and this makes driving the RS5 even more fun.
Being a modern-day Audi, there is a gamut of electronic wizardry keeping things in check. While the Quattro AWD manages the right flow of power, there are clever differentials, electromechanical actuators, and complicated computational dynamics making sure the RS5 remains equally usable on any street as it feels at home on the ring. But these never feel intrusive. Even shifting through the Audi Drive Select drive modes barely alters the neutral and well-balanced handling charisma of the RS5.
As for the ride, the sports sedan is stiffly sprung. Surprisingly, the 265/35 R19 section Continental tyres offer some absorption over sharp irregularities. But each bump and crease is felt on the inside since there’s little give from the suspension. That said, the RS5 Sportback’s ride isn’t something to complain about in everyday usability. But the low ground clearance needs to be mindful of. Especially when driving over the ill-made speed-breakers or trudging through a gravely withered piece of tarmac.
Interior Space and Quality
Step inside the low-slung sedan and it’s a typical Audi affair here. It’s a no-fuss, no-nonsense cabin with the facade of an RS. You slide into a huggable sports seat that holds you tight in all the right places. Grab on to the meaty steering with flat-bottom steering wheel and there’s a reminiscent to the original R8 hidden there somewhere. Although there are no fighter jet-like dual-circular buttons mounted on the steering here, there’s a dedicated RS button for when one wants to wake up the slumbering monster in this ‘Sleeper’.
Everything about the RS5’s cabin follows function over form. It’s a rather simple looking cabin for a car that’s upward of an eight-figure price tag. But its simplicity helps you reach out to all the controls easily, thus focusing on what’s more important in an RS badged vehicle – driving! For example, take a look at the centre console. There are no unnecessary buttons to navigate the multimedia or adjust the air-con or navigation. Just the gear-lever, engine start button, electronic-parking brake, and a volume dial. Just dab-slot-punch-rotate and off you go!
Although it’s a touchscreen, the floating infotainment screen is carried over from the standard Audi range and doesn’t pack anything special for the RS beast here. But it does throw out all the essential information just like the all-digital driver’s display. And the latter is configurable too.
Space-wise, it’s a little tight in terms of the headroom owing to the sloping roofline of the Sportback. Nonetheless, you can accommodate three other passengers easily and can manage a quick cross-country jaunt too. Since you’d be travelling so fast, you’d be spending less time in the tight cabin, innit?
Lastly, since this is a proper four-door sedan and not a tight coupe like the previous RS5 was, there’s a usable boot space as well that can put some coupe-SUVs to shame. The notchback opens up quite tall and wide and the cavernous boot is good enough to swallow everything belonging to a bachelor pad if not the whole house.
Equipment and Safety
Usually, high-performance cars are robbed of their luxuries to save a few kilos and shave off a few milliseconds from the quarter-mile time. But not this one. The RS5 Sportback comes loaded with all the equipment and features available in the book, and then some. In terms of hardware, there are all the usual RS gadgetries like Drive Select, large steel brakes, 10-spoke star-style silver-finished wheels, Virtual Cockpit with MMI interface, and sport suspension. In terms of safety, there is a multitude of airbags, rear-view camera, park assist, TPMS, ISOFIX, head restraints for front passengers, and all the usual driver aids you could expect from true-blue sports cars.
And for comfort, the RS5 Sportback is available with three-zone climate control, electric front seats with lumbar support and memory, sunroof, space saver, electric tailgate, 40-20-40 split-seats, smartphone connectivity, and Alcantara upholstery.
With the 2021 update, Audi India decided to ditch the two-door coupe version of the RS5 and brought in the Sportback instead. Moreover, they decided to position it above the slightly mellow (but still ferocious enough) S5 Sportback, which is priced at Rs 79.06 lakh. Meanwhile, this – the full-blown RS – costs around Rs 1.04 crore (both prices are ex-showroom, India). That’s a viable difference of around Rs 25 lakh between these two quick Audis – that are equally unostentatious and won’t grab a second look by a passer-by.
But buying an RS5 Sportback is for those who want top-tier, unadulterated performance and bragging rights. It sounds fantastic, looks eccentric, and feels equally at home on the streets of South Bombay or attacking corners of BIC. Surprisingly, with two extra doors, it can be used for daily commute as well. And will make mincemeat of other full-blown sports cars/coupes when you show it some long strip of tarmac with Christmas lights (the automotive kind) placed at the start of it. Trust us, we know!

2022 Audi RS5 Coupe Review: Excelling In Isolation
In a world where even the BMW M4 is now offered with all-wheel-drive, the likes of the Audi RS5 Coupe no longer have the monopoly on high-performance all-weather grip. But that doesn't mean it's totally irrelevant either. With a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 developing 444 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, the AWD RS5 is still an impressive performer. Thanks to a redesign for the 2021 model year that included wider bodywork and styling mildly reminiscent of the rally heroes of the eighties, the RS5 looks as good as it goes. Is it a true sports car, or is it just a big, heavy, luxurious grand tourer?
Read in this review:
2022 Audi RS5 Coupe Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs the 2021 Audi RS5 Coupe?
Last year's RS5 Coupe saw a refresh that came with styling and specification changes, as well as two expensive limited-run launch editions. This year, Audi has concentrated its efforts on refining the options and packages, with a selection of new ones being available. The Dynamic Plus package comes with carbon-ceramic front brakes and increases the top speed to 174 mph. The Bronze Styling package adds bronze styling accents inside and out. The RS Design package includes floor mats with the RS logo, seat belts with red accents, and imitation suede on the steering wheel, shifter, and center console.
Pros and Cons
- Elegant cabin design
- Great gearbox
- Smooth ride
- Plenty of customization choices
- Athletic design
- Engine sound is a bit muted
- Rivals offer more cargo space
- Still understeers like there's lead in the front bumper

RS5 Coupe Exterior
The exterior of the 2022 Audi RS5 Coupe clearly states this car's intentions. Those aggressive intake vents and wide grille pair beautifully with Matrix-design LED headlights with laser light, while a taut hood and bulbous arches add to the muscular look. 19-inch wheels sit in those arches, with 20s available. At the rear, you get a subtle trunk spoiler and a large rear diffuser with an oval exhaust pipe on either end. With no soft-top variant available, this is the only RS5 you can get with two doors.
The Audi RS5 measures 73.5 inches in width excluding mirrors, while height is rated at 54 inches. It has a length of 185.9 inches with a wheelbase of 108.9 inches. In terms of curb weight, the RS5 tips the scales at 3,990 pounds. By contrast, the slightly longer and more spacious RS5 Sportback weighs 4,057 lbs.

Thankfully, the Audi RS5 is one of the few cars out there offered as standard in colors that are not black or white. Instead, you get Audi's trademark Nardo Gray, but a vivid Turbo Blue is also offered at no cost. If you're willing to spend extra, you can have metallic hues like Glacier White, Mythos Black, Navarra Blue, Sonoma Green, or Tango Red. Each of these cost $595, as does Daytona Gray pearl.

RS5 Coupe Performance
The Audi RS5 is less sports car and more luxury sports coupe; it comes with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that develops 444 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, all of which is channeled to the quattro AWD system via an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. Combined, these factors help it to achieve a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds, one-tenth quicker than the Sportback version can manage. Flat out, the RS5 will reach 155 mph, or, if you're willing to spend extra for the Dynamic Plus package, top speed only arrives at 174 mph. Thanks to six-piston brakes up front, the RS5 stops as well as it accelerates, and if you choose the Dynamic Plus package, you get carbon-ceramic front brakes for even better stopping performance.
Engine and Transmission
There's only one powertrain offered with the RS5, but it's a pretty spicy one. The 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 develops 444 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, and throttle response with this mill is remarkably good. It pulls hard from low down and maintains its thrust far up into the rev range. That being said, it can't hold a candle to the V8's throttle response, sound, and linear power delivery from generations past. Nevertheless, pulling away from the lights with vigor is exciting, and overtaking on the freeway is easily achieved. The ZF eight-speed, here dubbed 'Tiptronic', is a perfect accompaniment to the engine, changing up smoothly and quickly in regular drive modes and taking on a crisp efficacy when you decide you want more sportiness. As is commonly the case, you can also take manual control with the steering-mounted paddle shifters, enabling you to change up or down as and when you please. Again, the transmission performs beautifully here, with no delay in providing smooth, clean shifts.

Handling and Driving Impressions
These days, the modern Audi is generally much more averse to the understeering tendencies of old. Cars like the TT RS handle beautifully, but sadly, even the latest iteration of the RS5 has failed to join the ranks of modern cars with AWD that remain balanced and neutral. It's a lot better than it used to be, but this is still not a precision tool like the BMW M3 or M4. With an electric steering system now the norm, it feels a bit pointless to mention that the wheel is devoid of feel and doesn't communicate what the front tires are doing, but it really makes a big impact on how much you can trust the car. Fortunately, the firm yet supple ride helps make up for these shortcomings, and the RS5 remains quite flat even when you're pushing it. The brakes are also easy to modulate with good pedal feel and do an excellent job of bringing this hulking mass of Audi engineering to a stop. Ultimately, this is very much an Audi that you point and shoot. Go into the corners with caution and exit them with reckless abandon for the best results. Just don't expect a sonorous exhaust note to follow in your wake.
RS5 Coupe Gas Mileage
The RS5 Coupe's official EPA estimates are 18/25/21 mpg on the city/highway/combined cycles. Thanks to a 15.3-gallon gas tank, you can likely expect an average mixed range of around 321 miles per full tank.

RS5 Coupe Interior
The interior of your average Audi from recent times has always looked spectacular, combining minimalism with cutting-edge design. A sporty flat-bottomed steering wheel sits ahead of a 12.3-inch digital driver display, with a 10.1-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dash for infotainment. As usual, there's plenty of leather and aluminum perfectly offset by a classy wash of carbon fiber and subtle contrast stitching. To make your drive as comfortable as it is pretty, both front occupants get 12-way power-adjustable seats including lumbar adjustment and heating and massaging. Dual-zone automatic climate control keeps the atmosphere temperate while mood lighting makes it feel even more luxurious. And if you feel like parting with more money, you can spec upgrades like a head-up display.
Seating and Interior Space
The RS5 Coupe seats four officially. Audi doesn't attempt to cram a third individual into the second row - that's what the Sportback is for. Obviously, these seats are more commodious than in a Porsche 911, but we still wouldn't put anyone taller than a toddler back there. For those in front, ingress and egress are good and the 12-way (including lumbar) power-adjustable heated massaging seats offer an ideal driving position regardless of your stature, with the roof failing to encroach on your headroom in a way that makes even a six-footer uncomfortable. The view out is good too, even when checking your blind spots.

Front Head Room37.4 in
Rear Leg Room32.7 in
Rear Head Room36.1 in
Interior Colors and Materials
The 2022 RS5 comes with quilted leather as standard. This leather is black and can be had with plain black stitching or red contrast stitching, but the more adventurous among us may wish to opt for Lunar Silver leather with Rock Gray stitching. As mentioned earlier, carbon fiber inlays are standard. We like the gloss finish of these inlays.
RS5 Coupe Trunk and Cargo Space
If you want an RS5 with loads of space, the Sportback is obviously the way to go. But if you don't care all that much about practicality, the coupe's 10.9 cubic feet (relatively small in this segment) is enough to carry a pair of large suitcases - assuming that you're half decent at Tetris. Fortunately, you can fold the rear seats if need be.
In the cabin, a pair of cupholders sit behind a little storage bin. Under the center armrest is another, larger little bin, but the door pockets are long, narrow, and shallow. The glovebox is of average size, but if it's not, you can always use the rear seats for any sundry items.
RS5 Coupe Infotainment and Features
As standard, the RS5 comes with Matrix-design LED headlights with Audi laser light and LED taillights with animation. But Audi hasn't just focused on the lighting systems. You also get heated and massaging power-adjustable front seats, a 12.3-inch digital driver display, wireless charging, remote keyless entry, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, lane departure warning, and forward collision detection with automatic emergency braking. You also get digital gauges in the display for g-force, boost pressure, lap times, and output. However, you'll have to pay extra for rear collision preparation, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive dampers, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, park assist, a surround-view camera, traffic sign recognition, and a head-up display.
The Audi RS5 has an infotainment system with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display that is hooked up to a whopping 19 speakers from Bang & Olufsen. As you can imagine, the audio quality in this car is phenomenal, and with the standard inclusion of features like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio, as well as Bluetooth and USB connectivity, choosing the right song to demonstrate your sound system to your friends is a breeze. The system is intuitive and easy to use too, but unfortunately, you have to pay extra for MMI Navigation plus.
RS5 Coupe Problems and Reliability
Thus far, the 2022 versions of the RS5 have been free of recalls, but the 2021 RS5 Coupe was subject to three. One was for lock nuts on the rear axle that are prone to failing, one for a malfunctioning seat belt retractor, and one for missing scuff protection on the rear-light wiring.
To maintain your peace of mind, limited and powertrain warranties cover the RS5 for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

RS5 Coupe Safety
At present, no version of the Audi RS5 has undergone comprehensive testing at the NHTSA but the 2022 A5 on which it is based received a full five-star overall rating. Over at the IIHS, there is no Audi RS5 Coupe review either, but there is one for the similar A5 Coupe again; fortunately, it got the best possible score of Good in its crashworthiness tests.
Key Safety Features
As standard, every 2022 Audi RS5 comes with the usual amenities that you'd expect: a rearview camera, tire pressure monitoring, rain-sensing wipers, and the usual stability and traction management systems. You also get Matrix-design LED headlights with Audi laser light, lane departure warning, and forward collision detection and mitigation. However, you must pay extra to unlock adaptive cruise control with traffic sign recognition and traffic jam assist, a head-up display, lane keep assist, park assist, a surround-view camera, and blind-spot monitoring.
Verdict: 🏁Is the 2022 Audi RS5 Coupe a Good Car?
The Audi RS5 Coupe is a sports car conundrum. It provides great performance but doesn't sound that good anymore, and many rivals will outrun it. It comes with quite a few advanced conveniences but expects you to pay more for commonplace items like the navigation package. Furthermore, its AWD system is expected to endow you with more confidence, but the way the car understeers when you're approaching the apex of a corner at high speeds has the converse effect. It also tries to be practical with four seats but has a relatively small trunk. What's more, the options you really want are ridiculously expensive. We quite like the way this car looks and goes, but it just feels like there's something missing. From our point of view, the RS5 Sportback is a more logical choice, and for those who insist on a coupe, we recommend looking at competitors, either the all-new BMW M4 or shopping for a C63. It's not that the RS5 Coupe sucks, it's just too vanilla to be our first choice.
🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Audi RS5 Coupe?
The Audi RS5 comes with a base price of $75,900 before a destination charge of $1,045.
2022 Audi RS5 Coupe Models
There is only one trim for the 2022 Audi RS5 Coupe, but it can be customized courtesy of a large variety of options and packages. It is powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 444 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. The power is transmitted to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, enabling it to reach 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 155 mph, but this can be increased to 174 mph by opting for the Dynamic Plus package. The car runs on 19-inch alloy wheels and comes as standard with Matix-design LED headlights with laser light and animated LED taillights. Inside, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen are standard and the latter incorporates wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system. Also standard are electrically adjustable and heated massaging front seats, forward-collision mitigation, and lane-departure warning.
Last year's limited-run Launch Edition models aren't available anymore and the options packages for the RS5 have been reworked for the 2022 model year. New is the $12,000 Audi Exclusive Bronze Styling package that brings with it blacked-out exterior accents and badging, bronze 20-inch five-arm-peak design alloy wheels with 275/30 summer tires, as well as a matte-carbon front spoiler, mirror caps, and rear diffuser. Inside, bronze stitching is used. The RS Design appearance package includes imitation suede on the shifter, steering wheel, and center console, as well as RS-logo floor mats and red-edged seat belts for $1,500. The $5,400 Dynamic Plus package includes front carbon-ceramic brake rotors, gray brake calipers, a carbon-fiber engine cover, and an increased top speed limiter - up from 155 mph to 174 mph.
🚗What Audi RS5 Coupe Model Should I Buy?
Since this is more of a GT than an all-out sports car, we'd keep the car as basic as possible, especially because it already has niceties such as massaging seats fitted. We'd add some of the missing driver-assistance features such as adaptive cruise control and a head-up display, as well as navigation, which should really have been standard. If you are going to use the full performance potential of your RS5, the Dynamic Plus package seems like a good idea as well.
2022 Audi RS5 Coupe Comparisons
2022 Audi RS5 Coupe vs BMW M4 Coupe
The 2022 BMW M4 gives the 2022 RS5 sports coupe a real run for its money. Starting at $71,800, it's cheaper, and with the availability of RWD and a proper manual gearbox, it's certainly the enthusiast's choice. It also has a bigger trunk with 15.5 cubic feet, and with 473 hp under the hood for the base entrant, it has more power than the Audi, but trails on the 0-60-mph sprint with a 4.1-second effort. Opting for the 503-hp M4 Competition xDrive will see that time drop to 3.4 seconds though - and it's still under $79,000. The M4, polarizing looks aside, is also more practical for rear-seat passengers thanks to more legroom. We also love the way BMW's modern iDrive infotainment system works, and with far more customization options promised, it'll be easy to make the M4 stand out. As we said at the outset, a test drive of the car will shed more light on things, but for now, the specs favor the Bimmer.
2022 Audi RS5 Coupe vs Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe
The C63 is also due for an overhaul, but it's only coming later in 2021. While it is yet to be seen whether losing the V8 will dramatically alter the way we feel about this car, for now, we can still enjoy a 4.0-liter twin-turbo motor that develops an RS5-pummelling 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic sends power to the rear wheels exclusively in traditional AMG fashion. However, this is one of the few cars in the segment with an even smaller trunk than the RS5, with the Merc's measuring just 10.5 cubes. Still, for luxurious comfort with rip-roaring power, the C63 is a highly attractive offering. Thanks to Merc's MBUX infotainment system, the C63 is a good car to fiddle around with too. For those who don't like the intricacy of Merc's interiors, the Audi is probably a safer bet. But if you like noise, power, and sideways fun, the C63 is the better choice. And what's more, Merc even offers a bonkers C63 S with over 500 horses. Sorry Audi, but you're out of your league.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.
CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert
Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.
CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.
Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.
Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles
Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.
Second Hand — Not Second Best
Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.
But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.
CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories
CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.
Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.
We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
With a 444-hp twin-turbo V-6 and an aggressive appearance, the 2022 Audi RS5 coupe provides max performance and machismo over its more subdued counterparts, the two-door A5 and S5. The RS5's extra power and track-focused hardware come with a significantly higher price tag, which helps it compete with hi-po rivals such as the BMW M4 and the Mercedes-AMG C63 coupe. While the Audi isn't as powerful as those alternatives, or as enjoyable behind the wheel, it has thrilling acceleration and works better as a beastly daily driver. Its interior has excellent outward visibility and generous passenger space, not to mention an undeniable sense of luxury with its rich materials and massaging front seats. The 2022 RS5 coupe could be considered too comfortable and quiet for some, but it gives off badass vibes regardless.
What's New for 2022?
The only differences between last year's RS5 coupe and the 2022 model are an assortment of new option packages. Those who want to further flaunt its top billing as an RS by way of floor mats with the logo, faux suede on the center console, shifter, and steering wheel, and seat belts with red accents should opt for the new RS Design package. The addition of the Bronze Styling package adds black exterior badging, a front spoiler and rear diffuser in matte carbon, bronze stitching in the coupe's cabin, and bronze 20-inch wheels with summer performance tires. And if a top speed of 155 mph isn't fast enough, the Dynamic Plus package raises that limit to 174 mph and includes a carbon-fiber engine cover, gray brake calipers, and ceramic front brakes.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Audi hasn't released the price of the 2022 RS5 coupe yet, but that should be known before it goes on sale this summer. Once we find out how much it costs and can configure it on the company's consumer site, we can recommend which one to buy.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
Under the RS5's sinewy clamshell hood sits a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 that pumps out 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. The power routes through Audi's rear-biased Quattro all-wheel-drive system via a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. Floor the gas pedal to feel the coupe's rousing acceleration. Too bad the accompanying soundtrack isn't particularly inspiring, especially compared with how good the old V-8 sounded. Behind the wheel, the meanest version of Audi's sports coupe is easy to control and enjoyable to exploit, with docile handling that is predictable in both wet and dry conditions. However, the last version we drove was equipped with the available variable-ratio Dynamic Steering, which has an uneven feel in Comfort and Auto drive modes. Switching to the Dynamic setting results in a fixed ratio that's more satisfying, but we recommend skipping the option altogether. The real beauty is how supremely comfortable the RS5 rides over distances short or long. While rivals such as the M4 and the C63 coupe demand more attention during spirited sessions, the Audi is still involving and intoxicating.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The RS5 coupe only has one powertrain and standard all-wheel drive, which means it gets one set of fuel-economy ratings from the EPA. The government estimates that the high-powered coupe will get 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. However, we haven't had a chance to evaluate its real-world efficiency on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen. For more information about the RS5 coupe's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The RS5's interior mixes an array of rich materials and high-tech equipment. The standard front sport seats are supportive during cornering and comfy on road trips. They also feature massage functions to indulge the driver and front passenger. Every cabin includes ambient interior lighting, three-zone climate control, and a panoramic sunroof. Those who want an even fancier experience can choose the optional diamond stitching, fully digital gauge cluster, heated steering wheel, and head-up display. Its fantastic driving position and excellent visibility—for a coupe, at least—are complemented by a back seat that will accommodate two adults of average height. While the coupe isn't as capacious as the four-door RS5 Sportback that sports a rear hatchback, the regular RS5 still swallowed five of our carry-on suitcases inside its trunk.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Unlike updated Audi models such as the A6 and A7 sedans, the RS5 doesn't have dual touchscreens that bisect its dashboard and center console. While that makes its infotainment system look less futuristic, we appreciate the RS5's high-mounted 10.1-inch touchscreen. Of course, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability come standard. A 19-speaker, 755-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system is a standalone option.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
While Audi supplies some standard driver-assistance technology, upgrades such as automatic high-beams and self-parking assist cost extra. For more information about the RS5 coupe's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
- Available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
- Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
Audi provides a competitive limited and powertrain warranty compared with luxury rivals such as Mercedes-Benz. However, its complimentary maintenance is considerably shorter than what BMW and Jaguar offer.
- Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- Complimentary maintenance is covered for one year or 10,000 miles

There is almost no water left, perhaps we should see how you, dear Miss Navy, will feel with this baggage in your ass. With these words, my tormentor was about to. Begin to untie the ropes holding me, but first he warned me that if I did something wrong, he would pour a couple more liters into me.
