What's New in the 2020 Audi S5?

The S5, along with the greater A5 line, receives a mid-life-cycle face-lift for 2020. The changes are minimal though and include updated styling in the front and rear with new grilles, new LED headlights, new lower facias up front, new taillights, a new bumper and new tailpipes at the rear. There's also a new infotainment system that Audi is referring to as MIB 3. This is accompanied by a new 10.1-in center display screen. See the 2020 Audi S5 models for sale near you

Which S5 is the Best?

The S5 is a European luxury coupe with some muscle car attributes. It's raucously fast while being quite comfortable and can be had with a lot of modern features, provided you're willing to pay top dollar for a loaded example. Overall value with European luxury cars can be tough to gauge, considering that you're paying a premium for the badge on the hood, but if you'll settle for nothing less, the S5 is unlikely to disappoint. Additionally, the S5 is offered in three different body styles that suit a number of different tastes. The coupe is arguably one of the most attractive vehicles on the road today, the cabriolet offers an open-top experience, and the S5 ads loads of practicality via two extra doors and a practical and convenient hatchback design. Whichever body style makes the most sense for you, we'd probably look toward a middle-of-the-pack Premium Plus model, as this will offer most of the features buyers want. Beyond that, options will come down to individual buyer taste. Find a Audi S5 for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Audi S5 Cost?

The 2020 Audi S5 is available in coupe, cabriolet and sportback body styles, the latter of which is a 4-door coupe design. All body styles are available in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige trims for 2020.

The coupe and sportback body styles have a panoramic sunroof that, unlike in the previous generation A5, is capable of fully opening. The A5 Cabriolet has a power-operated fabric roof that can be operated at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour.

The Premium trim ($52,895, coupe/sportback; $61,195, cabriolet) includes 18-in alloy wheels, full LED exterior lighting, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, heated windshield washer nozzles, keyless entry/ignition, a hands-free trunk release, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, selectable driving modes, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather/Alcantara (simulated suede) seating surfaces, 12-way power-adjustable heated massaging front seats with pneumatic side bolsters, ambient LED cabin lighting, a self-dimming rearview mirror, front and rear parking sensors, forward-collision mitigation, an integrated programmable garage door opener, Audi's latest infotainment system known as MIB 3 running through a 10.1-in screen, a 10-speaker audio setup, Bluetooth phone and music streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, HD radio and two USB ports.

The Premium trim is eligible for a Convenience package that includes driver's-side memory settings, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, an alarm system with motion sensors, rear collision mitigation, a 3-month trial subscription for satellite radio, self-dimming sideview mirrors and an Advanced Key for remote engine start/stop and trunk opening.

The Premium Plus ($54,400, coupe/sportback; $63,695, cabriolet) has the Advanced Key, blind spot monitoring, Exit Assist (alerts users to any hazards approaching when the doors are being opened), rear-collision mitigation, navigation, Wi-Fi, wireless charging, phone signal booster and the Virtual Cockpit (12.3-in configurable driver information display).

S5 Cabriolet Premium Plus models also include a wind deflector between the seats to cut down on cabin turbulence when the top is down.

The Prestige trim ($61,295, coupe/sportback; $69,595, cabriolet) adds handwriting recognition for controlling the infotainment system, a head-up display, a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control with Traffic Jam Assist (a partially autonomous system that steers and brakes in stop/go conditions of up to 40 mph), partially autonomous parking feature, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, road sign recognition and a Bang & Olufsen 755-watt/19-speaker audio system.

An S Sport package is available for Premium Plus and Prestige trims, bringing a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, a sport rear differential and red brake calipers. An available Black Optic package adds black exterior styling elements.

Cabriolet models are also eligible for a Luxury package that includes neck-warming air vents, a heated steering wheel and ventilated 14-way power-adjustable front seats.

Other options include ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, 19- and 20-in alloy wheels, high-quality Nappa leather upholstery and variable-ratio steering.

Trunk space is 11.6 cu ft. in the coupe and 9.3 cu ft. in the cabriolet. The S5 Sportback offers 21.8 cu ft. of space behind the second row, or a rather impressive 35 cu. ft. with the second row folded.

Is the 2020 Audi S5 a Safe Car?

While automatic emergency braking comes standard on the S5, features such as blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are all limited to either packages or upper trim levels. As with most German automakers, Audi is certainly anything but generous.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the regular A5 Coupe a top overall rating of five stars, with four stars for front impact protection and five for side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has also given the A5 Coupe a coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation after earning top marks in all the major categories.
