Performance

The powerful engine can accelerate the RS 5 Cabriolet from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, and achieve a standard top speed that is capped at 155 mph. However, customers can request a non-capped version from the manufacturer that increases the maximum speed to 174 mph. Given the power of the car, its combined city/highway fuel consumption is a relatively low 21.5 miles per gallon.

The Audi RS 5 comes with a seven speed, S tronic transmission with a dual clutch system that can be operated manually or automatically. In manual mode, gears can be selected using either the manual shift lever or the paddles mounted on the steering wheel.

Interior

The standard sport seats are power adjustable. They are built with high side panels that provide the best support laterally, and each has its head restraint integrated. They also have lumbar support, as well as thigh supports that can be slid out if required.

Seat covers come in Alcantara and leather. You can opt for superior upholstery made of Fine Nappa leather that is pigmented to reduce heating during sunny conditions. Some opt for either bucket seats that can be adjusted manually, or for seats with individual climate control that includes ventilation.

Features

The 2013 Audi RS 5 Cabriolet comes with a host of standard features. These include parking assist, heated seats in the front, and an information system that alerts the driver to recommended rest periods.

Optional equipment includes adaptive cruise control that uses radar to maintain safe distances from vehicles in front, emergency braking assist, lane change assist and the addition of a rear-facing camera to supplement the parking assist.
