Freshen 2020

After a redesign this year, a freshening won't be in the offing until 2020, based on traditional planning cycles.

Addition 2018

An RS 5 Coupe will arrive in the U.S. in first half of 2018 with a 450-hp twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. Following the RS 5 coupe is the RS 5 Sportback variant, due on sale in late 2018. It features 444 hp and all-wheel-drive. The RS 5 Sportback sits 0.27 inches lower than the current S5 Sportback and features a five-link suspension up front for improved handling and better steering precision, as well as a sport rear differential.
