Audi RS models are not the fastest in their segments, but they still are the classiest. The new 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback has just been revealed and it follows the classy style of its previously built sisters and brothers.
The new model is powered by a heavily turbocharged 2.9 liter V6 engine which develops 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. It’s a dense package, but still capable of taking the car from 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds. Top speed is, as usual, limited to 155 mph. But you can have it upped to 174 mph is you pay extra for the optional Dynamic plus package.
Naturally, the RS5 is AWD. The drivetrain consists of quattro permanent four-wheel drive with self-locking center differential via a sporty eight-speed Tiptronic. The system is backed up in its operation by lowered suspension, large RS brakes, revised steering system, all in the name optimum driving dynamics. When you mix all this with the refined and elegant design and the premium interior with many delightful RS details, the end result is a car that is perfect for pretty much every opportunity.
