Additional Packages

There are numerous optional extras that buyers can equip to the base model Audi RS5 Sportback. The most significant package is the newly-introduced Competition package, with a cost of $16,100. This adds a unique set of 20-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, a top speed increase to 180 mph, sport direct steering, coilover suspension with front and rear sport sway bars, the RS exhaust system, front ceramic brakes with red calipers, and some extended visual highlights. If you wish for a milder experience, you can select the $3,400 Dynamic Package, which adds the red calipers and RS sport exhaust and suspension with Dynamic Ride Control. The Black Optic Carbon Package, priced at $5,500, adds 20-inch alloy wheels and carbon touches for the door mirror housings, front spoiler and side trims, a carbon rear spoiler lip and diffuser, and high-gloss black exterior elements. The basic Black Optic Package, at $1,600, adds the same elements minus the carbon finish. For something more simple - and cheapest on the options list - is the $300 Audi black ring and badge option.

Inside the cabin, the RS Design Package adds Alcantara to the steering wheel, shift lever, and center console, slaps RS logos on the floor mats, and edges the seatbelts and mats in red. For advanced driver assists, there is the $3,000 RS Driver Assistance Package which adds adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, a hands-on detection steering wheel, a head-up display, park assist, a 360-degree top-view camera system, and traffic sign recognition. For $500, buyers can add pre sense rear and side assist, as well as optic exterior mirror via the Side Assist Package. Extra rear-side airbags can be specified at $350, and MMI Navigation will add $1,500 to the bill.

🚗What 2023 Audi RS5 Sportback Model Should I Buy?

There is only one RS5 Sportback trim, but if you are wondering which packages would make for the best-value specification, we'd strongly suggest the Competition Package, as it brings out the best in the sporty sedan. This forces the side assist package to be added as well, however. We'd also suggest the RS Driver Assistance and Navigation Packages for a more complete cabin and daily driving experience (the former requires the latter to be specified, too). These options will bring the car's price up to $97,300, excluding the destination charge.
