New Audi RS5 spotted in four-door Sportback form

Audi will followed the facelifted A4 with updated A5 Sportback, topped out by a revamped 444bhp RS5

Audi finally brought the RS5 Sportback to the UK a few weeks ago, but already prototypes of a facelifted version have been seen.

The four-door RS5 will receive a number of mid-life revisions that echo that of the recently launched 2019 A4, including mild external tweaks and an interior tech overhaul.

The RS5 Sportback will be the last of the updated A4 and A5 models to launch after the two-door coupe variants in standard, S and RS form. The prototype disguise isn’t extensive, so we can see revisions to the car’s headlights and taillights, as well as reprofiled bumpers.

Cabin revisions centre around the grafting in of the brand’s latest MMI infotainment system, which can be seen through the window of this prototype. It throws out the outgoing rotary controller in favour of a larger 10.1in touchscreen that sits more prominently in the dash and is operated by touch or voice control. New assistance tech features have also been introduced.

The 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback Slays

Verdict

Pretty much any modern performance car “can” be daily driven, but the Audi RS 5 Sportback is one of the most versatile practical performance luxury (in that order) vehicles on the road right now.

The design is exceptionally exciting without going full peacock, particularly inside the cockpit. It’s hard to slide behind the steering wheel without getting a little whiff of energy; it’s all just so damn cool-looking. The fact that the car can deliver a ride that’s just as exhilarating as advertised solidifies the RS 5 as a hot one, but what really elevates the Sportback is how well it works in a practical sense for four-person family activities and road trips.

You should expect a lot here since a well-equipped version of this car costs about $100,000. If that makes you woozy, a Kia Stinger GT2 provides a conceptually similar platform for half the price. But if you do have the means, and you’re wondering if the Audi really is twice as good, I mean... yeah, it is. The RS 5 Sportback straight-up slays.

Audi RS5 Coupe

Audi has revised the RS5 Coupé and the RS5 Sportback. New details make the exterior design even more progressive. For operation, both models rely on the new MMI touch technology with a large central screen. The twin-turbo V6 with an output of 331 kW (450 PS) and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque continues to ensure an impressive driving performance. In Germany and other European countries prices start at EUR 83,500.

"The revision of the RS5 Coupé and RS5 Sportback marks the successful conclusion of our 25th anniversary and the renewal of our model range," says Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. "Thanks to the standard permanent quattro drive, they occupy a special position in their segment."

Facelifted Audi RS5 twins revealed! Fresh styling and new infotainment

Audi has taken the wraps off its facelifted RS5 Coupé and RS5 Sportback, handing both high-performance variants fresh exterior styling and new infotainment systems.

Under the bonnet, the twin-turbo 2,9-litre V6 is unchanged, still offering its TFSI-flavoured 331 kW and 600 N.m to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and facilitating a sprint from zero to 100 km/h in a claimed 3,9 seconds.

Audi sharpens up RS5 Coupe and Sportback for 2020

It’s been three months since Audi announced its freshened up A5 line-up, and now it’s finally the turn of the RS5 Coupe and Sportback performance flagships.

As per the regular A5s, the front end of the RS5 models is where you’ll see the biggest changes, with a wider and flatter grille featuring sharper edges, and it's flanked by pointy new headlights - which can be had in matrix LED form with Audi laser light technology, if specified.

Another interesting detail comes in the form of small horizontal slits just beneath the bonnet, which are a nod to the original Quattro of 1984, although in that car’s case they were real air vents and in the modern Audi, they are simply ‘implied’ - Audi’s words, not ours.

The rest of the design changes are on the subtle side, but Audi has redesigned the side sills and rear diffuser, while buyers can choose from gloss black, matt aluminium and carbon styling packages to give their cars a more individual edge.

2020 Audi RS5 gains refreshed design and new tech

BMW M4 rival is final RS model to be facelifted with overhauled infotainment and more aggressive styling

Audi has updated the RS5 Sportback and coupé with tweaked styling and an overhauled infotainment system, just six months after the current model first arrived in UK dealerships.

The BMW M4 rival follows in the footsteps of its RS4 and RS7 siblings in gaining a revised front end, which features reshaped air intakes and an enlarged grille for a more aggressive look. Audi says that the three implied air vents above the grille - similar to the current A1 supermini - are inspired by the 1984 Audi UR Quattro.

As with other recently refreshed RS models from Audi, the RS5’s wheel arches have been extended by 40mm, while optional darkened headlight bezels further differentiate the performance model from the standard A5. The rear end has been subtly updated, as well, featuring a reshaped diffuser which can be specified in a range of contrasting colours.

Updated Audi RS5 and RS5 Sportback Revealed

Audi has revealed updates to its RS5 coupe and RS5 Sportback. Herewith all the details.

At first glance, it does not appear that much as changed when it comes to the 2020 Audi RS5 coupe and RS5 Sportback. However, there are big changes, especially when it comes to the cabin. The exterior receives a wider and flatter grille and there are air vents which are a nod towards the classic Audi Sport quattro. The vehicle also gets wider wheel arches, side sills and diffuser. You can get a carbon roof for the RS5 coupe.
