2018 Audi A5 vs. S5: Engine Specs & Performance

The 2018 Audi A5 and 2018 Audi S5 both come with a single powertrain option, although not the same one. The 2018 Audi A5 is a step above most other hatchbacks in everyday drivability. Capable in any weather and on any road surface thanks to quattro® all-wheel drive, the A5 is quick to accelerate, shifts smoothly, and has well-balanced handling. Meanwhile, the S5 is practically in a class by itself. Its sophisticated road manners make it easy to control in traffic, but it provides phenomenal driver engagement when you let it loose on twisty roads. Get engine specs below:
