Audi A5 And S5 Get A Hardcore Makeover

Tuning / Comments

ABT Sportline's Audi S5 has nearly as much power as the RS5.

For the 2020 model year, the Audi A5 was given a facelift to fight off the competition. To freshen up the styling, the luxury sedan was updated with a new grille, larger air intakes on the bumper, and new LED headlights as standard, while the interior was upgraded with a 10.1-inch display. If you can't afford the hardcore 2020 Audi RS5 but are craving more performance and sportier styling for the 2020 Audi A5 or 2020 Audi S5, German aftermarket tuner ABT Sportsline has a solution; or rather several solutions that can give buyers the looks and the performance of the RS5 in varying degrees.

As well as enhancing the exterior and interior, ABT has also extracted more performance from the Audi S5. In stock form, the Audi S5's 3.0-liter turbocharged engine produces 349 hp and 369 lb-ft, which is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. ABT's Engine Control Unit increases the power up to 419 hp and 405 lb-ft when running on 93 octane fuel, which isn't too far behind the range-topping Audi RS5. All ABT parts come with a warranty of 2 years or 50,000 miles.

Further improving the driving dynamics of the 2020 Audi A5 and S5 Coupe are height adjustable suspension springs that can bring the car between 0.59 and 1.57 inches lower to the ground. Anti-roll bars for the front and rear axles also reduce the body roll and improve grip levels.

To enhance the exterior, ABT Sportsline can fit rear spoiler finished in carbon gloss for the A5 and S5 Coupe and Sportback, resulting in improved aerodynamics and sportier handling. Four ABT wheel designs are also available for the 2020 Audi A5 and S5 in 19- and 20-inch sizes. Each design is painted in a dark color but different finishes and styles are available.

As for interior upgrades, owners can customize the cabin with an ABT switch-cap, a carbon/leather shift knob cover and integrated entrance lights showing the ABT logo.
