The Sportback version of Audi’s two-door A5 line is new to America this model year, and with it, we’re getting an absolute beast of an S model. We’re talking about the 354-hp 2018 S5 Sportback, a five-door grand tourer that stands out in a crowd, and isn’t afraid to make a little noise. But in addition to its impressible blend of comfort and performance, you’ll also find intelligent tech and practicality.

Reviewers have remarked that the S5 Sportback’s balance of comfort and sportiness is impressive. The turbocharged V6 offers 369 lb-ft of torque sent to all four wheels by an eight-speed automatic, and delivery is instantaneous. With launch control, the S5 Sportback hits sixty in 4.5 seconds, and the grip of the standard quattro system and weight of the steering makes it a blast to toss around. The interior is spacious and well-equipped, with optional massaging front seats and a maximum 35 cu-ft of cargo volume. When it comes to having your cake, and eating it, too, there’s no alternative.

To get behind the wheel of the new S5 Sportback, schedule a test drive appointment with our Audi dealership in Iowa City, IA. A sales representative can walk you through all the features of the car, and let you take it for a spin.
