Audi S5 Cabriolet Prestige
This all-wheel-drive car handles confidently while navigating curves. While I wouldn’t exactly call it a family car, it is definitely comfortable and perfect for long-distance touring. The S5 is for those who are truly interested in enjoying your experience behind the wheel.
Performance, Ride, and Fuel Economy
The Cabriolet has a powerful turbocharged V6 engine. Once you get going, the acceleration is swift and steady. When tested, the S5 was able to accelerate from 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds. Even at top highway speed, the brakes respond quickly. This car offers the best of all-wheel-drive traction with the agility of a rear-wheel-drive car.
The available adaptive suspension of the S5 offers excellent qualities for a variety of driving conditions. Comfort mode smooths out rough pavement with ease. Dynamic mode stabilizes body motion during spirited driving. The car is pretty silent at all speeds, canceling out wind noise.
The EPA estimates that the Cabriolet S5 averages 24 mpg combined with 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. This is in line with similar vehicles in its class.
Interior Comfort and Storage
There is plenty of room for the front passenger with ample adjustment range for the driver. The front seats offer lots of support and the available heated and ventilated elements work well. Climate control maintains the cabin temperature accurately. Visibility out of the front windshield is more than adequate. The interior controls are well placed and clear.
The S5 Prestige has a decent amount of room for gear in the rear cargo area beneath the hatch. The 40/20/40-split rear seats offer versatility for additional storage. There are a couple of cubbies in the center console area with room to keep items like keys and a phone. The center console bin can fit a wallet and other similar-size items. The cupholders are standard size.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Audi’s 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system’s graphics are colorful and sharp. The Virtual Cockpit is a configurable fully digital instrument panel that is able to display nearly any information you could want while driving. The navigation system is standard fare and user-friendly. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard with your smartphone interface.
Safety and Driver-Assistance
Unlike the lower level 2022 Audi Cabriolets where some safety features are optional, the S5 Prestige is equipped with the entire safety package as standard. These include:
- Automated emergency braking
- Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
- Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
