2019 Audi RS5 Sportback Races To U.S. Market With $74,200 Sticker

Audi‘s 2019 RS5 Sportback model, the Coupe version’s more practical five-door sibling, has been priced in the U.S. from $74,200, not including a $995 destination charge. That’s $4,300 more than what you’d spend on the Coupe.

Just as its two-door brethren, the 2019 RS5 Sportback is also powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine, cranking out 444 HP (450 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque, with the help of an eight-speed automatic and a rear-biased all-wheel drive system.

In a straight line, the RS5 Sportback will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.8 seconds (0.1 seconds slower than the Coupe), before maxing out at 155 mph (250 km/h). Opt for the Dynamic Plus Package and that number becomes 174 mph (280 km/h).

Compared to the S5 Sportback, the RS version sits closer to the road by 0.25 inches (7 mm). While the car features a fixed sports suspension setup as standard, buyers can also choose the adaptive dampers as an option.

For the 2019 model year, both the RS5 Sportback as well as the Coupe have received notable standard equipment updates, meaning that you get Audi MMI Navigation Plus, Audi Virtual Cockpit, Audi Connect Prime & Splus, direct tire-pressure monitoring system, Audi phone box and rear USB charge ports all free of charge.

Meanwhile, Audi park steering assist is also new for 2019 – this system can automatically steer your RS5 Sportback into detected parallel or perpendicular parking spaces.

    Hot damn, aside from the green this is hands down the best looking 4-door coupe on the market. Wow.

    • rodriguez256

      If I had to go with a four door this is the car first in line. Too bad I can’t afford it.

    • john1168

      It does come in other colors:) And I agree with you, it is one of the better looking cars out there.

    Nice car. But it’s 2018. Model 3 Performance over this. P3D is bonkers.

      Oh give it a rest, fanboy. No one cares about that POS with terrible fit and finish.

    • john1168

      I’m guessing the bumpers will stay on in the rain with the Audi… 🙂 LOL

  • john1168

    That’s about $4k more than a fully loaded S5 Sportback… Not bad but I wonder how much it will be with some options.

    • Daniela Wolf

      Fully equiped Coupe costs 94 000 $ so the Sportback will be around 98 000$.

      But remember thats pretty cheap because in europe u got to pay over 110 000€ for the same car.^^

  • TheBelltower

    This is really sexy. Love the green.

  • An Existing Person

    So many awesome cars like this coming out, but there isn’t enough garage space 🙁

  • Daniela Wolf

    Yeah will be quite comparable to the Coupe.^^
    Btw. the S5 is not available because too many orders are still open.

  • Truly lovely. But, unfortunately, as gorgeous and performance oriented as this is, if you buy it you’re still buying obsolete tech, due to the eV revolution. And I can’t put that kind of money down and still be behind the current apex in technology. It may have it’s issues, but a model 3 performance edition is still more appealing than this because you’re investing in a game-changing tech in that case. The message to Audi is: Don’t be afraid to innovate. We will buy RS-eVs.
