Audi S5 Range Gets A 342HP Diesel With An Electric Compressor In Europe

Hot on the heels of the introduction of the 2020 S6 and S7 TDI, Audi has confirmed the S5 Coupe and S5 Sportback will have a new diesel engine in Europe.

Producing 342 hp (255 kW / 347 PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque, the models have a 3.0-liter V6 TDI with 48-volt mild hybrid technology and an electronically powered compressor. This enables the cars to be approximately 19 percent more fuel-efficient than petrol-powered predecessors.

In terms of performance, the S5 TDI Coupe can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds. The S5 TDI can complete the same task in 4.9 seconds. Regardless of which model is selected, both have a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

As with the S6 and S7, many non European markets will continue to receive the S5 with a 3.0-liter TFSI V6 engine. It produces 349 hp (260 kW / 354 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. Despite having significantly less torque than the TDI variant, the petrol S5 Coupe can rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and onto a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

Regardless of where you buy your S5, all models will come equipped with an eight-speed tiptronic transmission and a quattro all-wheel drive system.

Getting back to the TDIs, they have a familiar exterior with a bright grille, faux aluminum accents and 18-inch alloy wheels. The models also come equipped with LED lighting units and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.  Apparently, the facelifted model will be introduced sometime later.

The cabin comes nicely equipped with heated front sport seats, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and matte brushed aluminum trim. Customers can also order a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a wireless smartphone charger and a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system.

Both models will arrive in Europe this May and German pricing starts at €65,300 for both the S5 Coupe and S5 Sportback.

    What’s the electric compressor? Is it like those early 2000s Mercedes c class when they had a compressor. Isn’t the compressor is more like a much basic form of a turbo?

      What up Bash. I believe it’s similar to the Dodge Ram lite hybrid set up. I could be wrong.

      It’s basically an electrically-powered supercharger, but can spool up near instantly and minimize turbo lag at low rpm.

      The ‘Kompressor’ was Mercedes-speak for a supercharger, which compresses air in the combustion chamber (like a turbo does) but runs off a pulley from the engine as opposed to exhaust gases like a turbocharger.

    I generally earn around $6,000-$8,000 a month using the internet. It really is more than enough to freely substitute my previous tasks earnings, primarily seeing that I actually work around 20 hr each week from home.I got rid of my job after doing work for the same organisation for years, I wanted very trusted income. I was not interested in packages that miguide you to make you millionnare within few days as you can see online. Those all of them are type of ponzi mlm plans in which you have to initially get leads thereafter sell a product to friends or relatives or any individual so that they will be in your team. The best part of working online is that I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world. Honestly,it is simpler than you would think, all you have to do is fill out a very simple form to get front line access to the Home Profit System. The guidelines are incredibly simple, you need not have to be a computer whiz, but you should know how to use the net. It is as simple as being on Facebook.
