Subtly stylish sedan with thrilling acceleration

If you’re searching for a sedan that blends style with speed, look no further than the 2015 Audi RS5. Known for its eye-catching exterior and classy cabin, this sedan stands out on the road, especially with its new-for-2015 paint color options: Mythos Black metallic and Sepang Blue pearl. Also new are the available red-painted brake calipers and three fresh wheel designs. You can choose between the base Coupe or the open-air Cabriolet, if you want to feel the wind in your hair. But this car doesn’t just look cool—it also delivers high performance with its 4.2L V8 engine that produces 450 horsepower and 316 pound-feet of torque.

5 reasons to buy the 2015 Audi RS5

1. Powerful engine and acceleration 

Open the hood of the 2015 Audi RS5 and you’ll discover a high-revving 4.2L V8 engine that spits out 450 horsepower and 316 pound-feet of torque. You can zip from zero to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds in the Cabriolet or 4.5 seconds in the Coupe. The punchy acceleration can help you merge seamlessly with fast-moving traffic. 

2. Dynamic stereo system 

Whether you use your daily commute to catch up on your go-to podcasts or you create a thematic playlist for every long road trip, you’ll be able to hear your tracks and tunes in crystal-clear clarity in the 2015 Audi RS5. A whopping 14 Bang & Olufsen® speakers strategically placed around the cabin (12 on the Cabriolet) create a dynamic audio experience for you and your passengers. The car also comes with an MP3-capable CD player, AM/FM radio, auxiliary input jack, and Bluetooth® capabilities. 

3. Exciting exterior style 

If you’re into cars with curb appeal, you’ll appreciate the exciting exterior style of the 2015 Audi RS5. It sports an RS5-specific front fascia, muscular stance, sleek curves, and angular headlights that command attention on the road. Audi also offers two new paint colors for this model year—Mythos Black metallic and Sepang Blue pearl—giving you even more ways to get a stand-out style. 

4. Refined drive quality 

The 2015 Audi RS5 doesn’t sacrifice driving comfort in favor of speed. Between its snappy seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission and standard all-wheel drive, this coupe keeps its grip on the road, even as you zoom around tight curves. Its suspension is equipped with sport-tuned dampers and springs to maximize road handling. 

5. Comfortable seats 

The standard front seats you’ll find on the 2015 Audi RS5 provide the support and comfort you’ll need for daily driving, keeping you firmly in place even on winding back roads. But if the standard seating doesn’t do it for you, you also have the option to upgrade to the available Comfort Seat package. It includes ventilated leather seats with slimmed-down side bolsters to offer a more relaxed position, along with a neck-level heating system (Cabriolet only).
