The RS segment of Audi is dedicated to manufacturing high-performance coupes and Sportback sedans. The latest model to be launched in this segment is the RS5, which made its way to the Indian markets in 2021. This four-door coupe gets the performance of the more powerful RS7 while retaining the comfort and convenience of the S5 variants. The RS5 was launched in India with only one variant, the RS5 Sportback. The RS5 Sportback follows a similar design language as that of the RS7 but gets a more trimmed and lightweight body. The Audi RS 5 Sportback is available in colours such as the Nardo Grey, Tango Red, Glacier White, Turbo Blue, Navarra Blue, Mythos Black, Sonoma Green and Daytona Grey. The new RS5 is fitted with a newer grille which is larger than the previous model and gives it an aggressive-looking facade. The headlamps are upgraded to the new Matrix LED lights, which allow road and traffic sensing features to alter the luminescence. It also gets an upgraded infotainment system with a newer and bigger 10.1-inch screen with Audi’s virtual cockpit. It also gets customizable RS driving modes other than comfort, auto, dynamic, and individual modes. The powerful engine is quick to accelerate and can clock 0 to 100 km/h in just under 4 seconds. The RS5 Sportback starts with a hefty Rs. 1.05 Crore (ex-showroom) as a base price.
The RS5 competes with models such as the BMW M4 Competition Pack and the Mercedes-AMG C63, which are its main competitors in the sports coupe segment.
