The 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback: 5 Doors, Hundreds of Horsepower

Inspired by sportscar heritage, the Audi RS 5 proves to be a stunning addition to the Beltway 8. For the 2019 model year, the brand granted this car notable performance as well as design touches that the luxe-minded will love.

What's Going on in the RS 5 Sportback?

The 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback is powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and run on a rear-biased all-wheel drive. Overall, this powertrain puts out a gnarly 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, hitting the 60-mph mark in under four seconds.

With the Dynamic Handling Package, you can bump your top speed up to 174 mph (which maxes out at a still-impressive 155 without the addition). Upgrade suspension with Dynamic Ride Control and you'll minimize body roll immensely.

As far as looks go, the RS 5 Sportback is a handsome hatchback with a wide and flat Singleframe® grille, oval exhaust outlets and 20-inch wheels. Inside, leather and RS embossing make for a luxurious cockpit while the Audi Virtual Cockpit and MMI® touch evoke modernity.

It Can Be Yours by Year's End

The 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback will be set for sale later this year, meaning you'll be able to make your way from Memorial City Mall to take it for spin. In the meantime, the folks here at Audi West Houston hold all the answers so you can get excited about this handsome hatchback.
