The S5 Cabriolet and the S5 Sportback use the same TFSI engine as the S4. The supercharged three-liter V6 engine with an output of 245 kW (333 hp) delivers outstanding performance. The standard sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) takes only 5.4 (Sportback) or 5.6 (Cabriolet) seconds. The seven-speed S tronic in combination with the quattro drivetrain is standard here.
