The Audi RS 5 Cabriolet has managed to maintain the power behind the original RS 5 Coupe even with its added soft-top.
Its engine is a 4.2 FSI, a high-revving, naturally aspirated V8, producing 331 kW (450 hp) and 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) of torque.
With its lightweight, automatic soft-top, the RS 5 Cabriolet accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and uses on average 10.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. This impressive fuel economy comes from the efficient gear system, the seven-speed S tronic.
In its latest evolutionary stage, the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system features the crowngear center differential and torque vectoring.
The powerful engine and inner workings of this car are matched with equally impressive external looks, including a low-set body and 19-inch, forged alloy wheels, designed specifically for the RS models, which add an air of luxury to this Audi Cabriolet.
For those who aren't in the market for a convertible, rest assured! The Audi SQ5 five-door offers the same luxury and power.
The new SQ5 is powered by a free-revving, supercharged, three-liter V6 engine with a displacement of 2,995 cc. The 3.0 TFSI engine produces 260 kW (354 hp) between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm, and delivers 470 Nm (346.65 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft between 4,000 and 4,500 rpm.
The sprint from zero to 100 km/h takes just 5.3 seconds - making it the best in its class. An eightspeed tiptronic and Quattro permanent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring transfer the power of the SQ5 firmly to the road.
The fast-shifting automatic transmission features two modes. The driver can also switch gears manually via the standard shift paddles on the steering wheel - no doubt an appealing feature for those living in Vancouver that go from highway driving to downtown traffic.
The SQ5 also boasts a sporty look in both its exterior and interior style; featuring distinctive bumpers, an eye-catching roof spoiler, and a platinum gray radiator grille with horizontal double bars in aluminum that are sure to turn heads.
