Like its RS 5 Coupe sibling, the 2021 Audi RS 5 Sportback receives some styling and features upgrades for the new model year. Under the hood, however, things remain the same, and that’s a good thing. Power continues to come from a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 with a total of 444 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. Expect 0-62 mph to happen in just 3.9 seconds while top speed is 174 mph.
The RS 5 Sportback’s sleek and sexy exterior styling has been enhanced for 2020, specifically with a wider and flatter Singleframe grille that now matches what’s found on the RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback. This freshened look also pays tribute to the iconic 1984 Audi Sport quattro. The four-door coupe’s wheel arches are now 1.6 inches wider and matrix LED headlights are optional. A new rear diffuser and side sills help complete the updated look. Also like the RS 5 Coupe, 19-inch wheels are standard while 20-inch rollers are optional.
The interior has also been slightly modified, specifically by way of a new infotainment system with a 10.1-inch touchscreen. The Audi virtual cockpit and its 12.3-inch display are also optional. Sales are expected to get underway shortly.
