2023 Audi S5 Coupe Interior and Cargo

Audi S5 Coupe Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 S5 Coupe Interior

The interior of the S5 has a wonderfully simple design, though it does fall a bit behind in comparison to the RS5's interior, which gets the brilliant Audi virtual cockpit as standard from the base trim. On the S5, you have to opt for the mid-level Premium Plus for this. As expected at this price point, premium materials are used liberally for the cabin, with leather and Carbon Atlas inlays as standard. We love the ergonomic layout that strikes a great balance between elegant and sporty, without coming across as clinical. And, it's not short on standard features, either. Seating is comfortable and space is ample for those up front, with front S sport seats that are power-adjustable. The rear seats are understandably a little tight for adults, although it's still manageable.

Seating and Interior Space

Coupes aren't exactly family-friendly cars, but the 2-door Audi S5 coupe does well for its size. Audi claims that four adults can sit in the S5, but some passengers will have to sacrifice on space if the S5 is at full capacity. Still, the front offers more than enough space for six-footers, even if the back is better suited for small children. The M440i offers significantly more legroom in the rear, but not as much headroom. As standard, 12-way power-adjustable front seats with four-way lumbar support are included along with heating, and leather is standard fare from the entry-spec trim. Overall, the space in the S5 is generous, even if it is a task to get into the back.

Interior Colors and Materials

There are many different interior upholstery and trim options available for the 2023 S5 coupe, though some are only available on certain trims. For the Premium, Black leather upholstery with Rock Gray stitching is standard, but Rotor Gray with Anthracite stitching can be had at no extra cost. The Premium Plus and Prestige are available with the same options as the Premium but get four additional upholstery options to choose from. Upgraded black leather with Rock Gray stitching can be had for $550. For $1,000, customers can choose from upgraded Nappa black leather with one of two stitching options: Crescendo Red or Rock Gray. For the same price, you can have Magma Red leather with Gray stitching or Rotor Gray leather with Anthracite stitching.

Carbon Atlas inlays are standard in the classy interior.

All other surfaces feature soft-touch materials, while mid-spec trims and up get soft leatherette on the center console and door armrests. There are S line stainless steel door sill inlays as standard to tie the whole package together.

2023 S5 Coupe Trunk and Cargo Space

While the S5 isn't totally impractical, you can't expect to find a utilitarian in the sports coupe segment. The Audi has 10.9 cubic feet in the trunk, which is a little less than what the new BMW M440i offers. Granted, it's not a large difference; the Bavarian brute offers 12 cubes of space. At least the S5 is slightly more practical than the 10.5 cubic feet offered by the Mercedes-AMG C43. The split-fold configuration of the back seat allows for larger items to fit when need be. The trunk will easily accommodate a set of golf clubs.

In-cabin storage is decent enough, thanks to deep door pockets on the doors and an average-size glovebox. Two cupholders are standard. Storage nets on the back of the front seats and an added net with straps in the trunk are included, too.

2023 S5 Coupe Infotainment and Features


All trims come with a panoramic sunroof, three-zone climate control, and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. Heated seats with twelve-way power-adjustability clad in leather and Alcantara are standard across the board. Push-button start and cruise control are also included. Safety features are inclusive of a rearview camera, Audi pre sense city, and Audi pre sense basic as well as emergency braking. The Premium Plus adds keyless entry and wireless charging to the mix along with a heated steering wheel, park assist, a top-view camera, adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, active lane assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. A head-up display and traffic sign recognition are reserved for the Prestige trim.


Although the base S5 doesn't have the brilliant virtual cockpit as standard, it does come with relatively decent tech in terms of infotainment. Audi's MMI software is installed to a 10.1-inch touchscreen, is compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and compatible with Bluetooth streaming. A ten-speaker sound system is the standard fare for the first two trims, although the Premium Plus gets Audi's phone box with signal booster and wireless charger extra, and the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as part of the Audi virtual cockpit setup. At the top of the range, the Prestige trim gets a brilliant 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system and adds navigation to the mix.
