2020 Audi S5 models sold throughout Europe are available exclusively with a 3.0-liter TDI six-cylinder engine also found within the latest S4, S6, and S7 models. This powertrain pumps out 342 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The car can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in under five seconds and continues through to a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
Interestingly, while all European S5 models are sold with a diesel, those sold in markets outside the Old Continent get a 3.0-liter TFSI V6 turbocharged petrol engine that churns out 348 hp and 368 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. It reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.7 seconds despite the substantial torque deficit over the diesel model.
As for the Audi A5 Convertible model you see perched on an angle in the gallery below, it is the 40 TDI quattro derivative. That means it is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel four-cylinder with 190 hp at 3800 rpm and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. It is front-wheel drive and completes the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in a claimed 7.7 seconds, while having a 150 mph (241 km/h) top speed. Other powertrain options for the updated A5 range include an entry-level 35 TDI 2.0-liter turbo-diesel with 161 hp and a petrol 40 TFSI model that has 187 hp.
Order books for the facelifted Audi A5 range, including the S5, open this fall with the first deliveries penciled in for early 2020.
