5 reasons to buy the 2022 Audi RS5

1. Thrilling performance

As it's a performance-oriented car, you can rest assured that the 2022 Audi RS5 offers an amazing driving experience. Powered by a twin-turbo 2.9L V6 engine that's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and generates 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, the 2022 Audi RS5 is almost a racetrack-worthy car. It goes from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, according to the manufacturer's estimates, and can reach a top speed of 155 mph. Even if you're taking it for a calm Sunday cruise, you'll love the thrill of this car.

2. Luxury interior

The interior of the 2022 Audi RS5 offers almost as much excitement as its engine does. It features a luxury cabin, with refined materials and amenities that help make for an enjoyable experience. It comes standard with leather-wrapped, power-adjustable sport front seats that offer great support when making turns at high speeds and provide comfort during long trips. There is also three-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, and a panoramic sunroof as part of the standard equipment.

3. Standard tech features

Adding to the sense of refinement and luxury inside the cabin, the 2022 Audi RS5 comes with plenty of standard tech features that are there to entertain and provide connectivity to passengers while on the road. The infotainment system features a 10.1-inch touchscreen and is compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. A premium Bang & Olufsen® audio system and Bluetooth® connectivity are also standard, letting you hook up your favorite tunes with ease.

4. Useful driver-assist systems

On top of the infotainment technology, the 2022 Audi RS5 has several advanced systems that are meant to make it easier for the driver to maintain control of the vehicle and navigate various tricky traffic scenarios. For instance, it comes standard with forward collision warning and forward automatic emergency braking. It's also equipped with lane-departure warning and automatic high-beam headlights, which are very helpful on the highway, as well as a pedestrian detection system.

5. Different body style options

In addition to the performance, the sense of luxury, and the convenience it offers, the fact that it's available in two different body styles is another compelling reason to consider the 2022 Audi RS5 as your next vehicle. It's offered as a two-door coupe or a four-door Sportback, so you can choose the model that fits your needs and lifestyle. If storage space and passenger comfort are among your priorities, you should go with the Sportback. It has more generous head- and legroom in the second row, measuring 37 inches and 35.1 inches, respectively, along with 35 cu-ft of total cargo space with the rear seats folded. The coupe, for its part, looks more stylish, so it's the more appealing option for those who put a high price on aesthetics and appearance.
