AUDI S5 Cabriolet 2012 - Present
The Audi S5 Coupé uses the 3.0L Supercharged V6 TFSI engine producing 245 kW, previously used in the S5 Cabriolet and S4 Sedan/Avant since the 2010 model year. The other major change under the bonnet is the introduction of stop-start technology for better fuel efficiency. Audi claims an average fuel economy of 8.9 litres/100 km (compared to the current 12.6 litres/100 km in the V8 coupe and 10.7 litres/100 km in the Cabriolet).
Audi also mentions the S5 is a single-frame vehicle (there is no mention of whether this is an aluminum frame to reduce weight and give the car better performance or if it remains a steel frame).
As part of the mid-generational refresh, the S5 undergoes some major front-end changes including a complete redesign of the headlights - this means new DRL's, a brand new grill loosely based on the 2012 Audi A6 grill, new fog lamps. Audi has also introduced a new rear diffuser that appears to be more cosmetic than the one found on previous models.
