fresh Sportback Will Be the Least Expensive Member of the 2018 Audi A5 as well as S5 Family
Audi’s A5 as well as sportier S5 have been the brand’s coupe as well as convertible offerings from the mid-size space, although for the fresh-generation edition arriving for 2018, they’ll be joined for the 1st time by a four-door fastback, the Sportback. The company has just released pricing for the A5/S5 family, as well as the Sportback is actually the least expensive of the bunch, undercutting the two-door coupe by $0.
The Sportback is actually offered in both A5 as well as S5 guise, with Quattro all-wheel drive as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission standard on both. The A5 is actually powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 252 horsepower as well as 273 lb-ft of torque, while the S5 gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 not bad for 354 horsepower as well as 369 lb-ft. The A5 Sportback, in Premium trim, starts at $43,575, which makes the idea the lowest-priced A5 variant. The S5, which skips the Premium trim level as well as starts at Premium Plus, carries a base cost of $55,375, which again is actually the lowest figure we find for the S5. the idea also represents an upcharge of $8800 over the Premium Plus A5 Sportback. Both the A5 as well as S5 also are offered in top-spec Prestige trim, at $51,175 (A5) as well as $59,775 (S5).
The two-door coupe is actually $0 dearer, whether we’re talking A5 or S5. in order in which’s $43,775 for the four-cylinder Premium as well as $55,575 for the V-6 Premium Plus. Interestingly, the A5 coupe—although not the Sportback—offers the additional choice of pairing the turbo four that has a six-speed manual transmission. Pricing for the manual is actually identical, as well as the idea’s not restricted to the base car; the idea’s available in all three trim levels. An A5 Premium Plus is actually $46,775, while the Prestige runs $51,375 (both figures, again, are $0 more than the Sportback). The S5 Prestige sits atop the coupe pyramid at $59,975.
The droptop is actually the most expensive Centeng style, as well as the idea, too, is actually offered from the same 5 variants (three A5 as well as two S5). No manual here, though. The convertible opens at $50,575 for the A5 Premium as well as climbs to $67,675 for the S5 Prestige.

Interestingly, Audi’s pricing strategy exactly follows in which of the BMW 4-series, the only various other premium brand to field both a two-door as well as a four-door coupe in This specific class. The 2017 BMW 430i is actually $42,945 in four-door, Gran Coupe form, as well as $43,145 ($0 more) as a two-door. The spread is actually the same for the 440i: $49,295 for the Gran Coupe, $49,495 for the regular coupe. Coincidence? Probably not.
