Audi offers the 2023 S5 Sportback in three trims: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. All versions come with a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine making 349 horsepower and managed by an eight-speed automatic transmission. Audi quattro all-wheel drive is standard across the lineup. The EPA has estimated this model’s fuel economy at 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

Standard Features and Major Options

The 2023 S5 Sportback Premium has numerous exterior features worth noting, including a power panoramic sunroof, a power tailgate, a sport-tuned suspension, LED exterior lighting with headlight washers, heated power side mirrors, quad exhaust tips, and 19-inch wheels. Summer tires are standard, but all-season tires are a no-cost option. This trim also gets leather and microsuede upholstery, heated front seats with a massage feature, tri-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, LED cabin lighting, a 7-inch driver information display, a 40/20/20-split folding rear seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The optional Premium Convenience Package adds a heated steering wheel, proximity keyless entry, a driver’s position memory system, auto-dimming side mirrors, a motion-sensitive alarm system, and additional driver aids and infotainment technology (detailed below). The Premium Plus includes everything from the Premium with the Convenience Package and heated power side mirrors with power-fold, a leatherette-covered center console and door armrests, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Only the Prestige gets enhanced LED headlights, a head-up display, headlight and taillight animation, expanded cabin lighting, and heated rear outboard seats. The Premium Plus and Prestige can be upgraded with some nice options.
