What's New in the 2019 Audi S5?

The S5 Coupe starts out with a new entry level Premium trim. Standard equipment is redistributed among what is now three trim levels for the coupe. Audi has also adopted a new method for quoting horsepower. The 2018 S5 had 354 horsepower, but this year's model has 349. No revisions to the engine have taken place and torque figures are unaffected. See the 2019 Audi S5 models for sale near you

Which S5 is the Best?

Either take advantage of a new, less expensive version of the S5 coupe by buying it in Premium trim, or go the whole way and get the Prestige model. The latter is attractive because of its extra driver aids and B&O audio system. Find an Audi S5 for sale

2019 Audi S5 vs the competition

2019 Audi S5 Sportback -- If the 2-door S5 coupe is tempting, but not sufficiently practical, the 4-door S5 Sportback hatchback has some good news.

2019 BMW 440i xDrive -- Has a blend of sportiness, style and luxury that cements it on any potential buyer's short list.

2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS -- Less expensive than the S5, but with a mighty 455-hp 6.2-liter V8, a resonant exhaust note, plus surprisingly entertaining and capable handling.

2019 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 -- Slightly more powerful, with 400 hp. However, this coupe doesn't compare well with the S5 in almost any other way.

Used BMW M4 -- Take a look at BMW's certified pre-owned (CPO) program. Available as a coupe or a convertible with a folding hard top.
