5 reasons to buy the 2015 Audi S5

1. Supercharged engine 

The primary goal of the 2015 Audi S5 is to deliver a thrilling experience for passengers and drivers, and it succeeds thanks to the formidable engine under its hood. It’s powered by a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine with an output of 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. It runs in combination with a six-speed manual transmission, with all-wheel drive as standard. The supercharged engine allows for faster acceleration, which is reflected in the 2015 Audi S5’s zero-to-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds. 

2. Upscale interior 

Typical of most Audi models, the 2015 Audi S5 comes with a refined, upscale interior providing a high level of comfort and convenience for all passengers. It boasts an elegant, intuitive design, with supportive seats and a combination of leather and simulated suede upholstery, as well as heated power-adjustable front sport seats. An auto-dimming rearview mirror, tri-zone automatic climate control, and brushed aluminum trim round out the list of features giving riders a great sense of luxury. 

3. Standard tech features 

As far as technology is concerned, the 2015 Audi S5 is equipped with plenty of features that come as standard. It has Audi’s Multi Media Interface® which includes a seven-inch screen, Bluetooth® connectivity, and satellite radio, to name a few. It also comes standard with the Audi Drive Select system, which allows you to directly tweak throttle and transmission settings. Drive modes include Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Individual. 

4. Beautiful styling 

On top of offering an exciting ride, the 2015 Audi S5 looks attractive, too. It has a typical coupe body style that reflects its sporty nature. The exterior design is highlighted by an athletic profile with a sloping roofline and a bulky, aggressive rear end. At the front, it gets Audi's large, plunging grille, accentuating the S5's athletic stance even further. 

5. Standard all-wheel drive 

To further improve the performance of the 2015 Audi S5, there is the standard all-wheel drive. Audi’s quattro® system gives the S5 an additional edge, especially when it comes to acceleration and traction. This allows the 2015 Audi S5 to accelerate that much faster as it sends power to all wheels at the same time. This can be felt on slippery roads, in particular. The improved traction offers better cornering at high speeds, among other benefits.
