Audi S5 (8T) Coupe (2007-2016)

Neoscore 71%

Product Overview

Audi S5 (chassis code 8T) is a mid-size coupe in production from 2007 to 2016. It is based on the Mk1 Audi A5 Coupe and was powered by a naturally-aspirated V8 with automatic transmission in pre-facelift and supercharged V6 with DCT in facelifted guises.
As such, one could argue that the pre-facelift Mk1 S5 was akin to a pre-facelift RS 5, even though the latter is much higher tuned with stronger internals. Styling-wise, the S5 is quite athletic but does not sufficiently stand out from the base A5 Coupe with the S Line package.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi S5 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners.
