2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet Details and Specifications. After launching A5 and S5 coupe, Audi doesn’t want to wait for too long to reveal their new convertibles, 2018 A5 and S5 Cabriolet. Audi says that the convertibles will have the same design with their coupe brothers. Therefore, we shouldn’t expect something surprising about the design. A5 and S5 Cabriolet are built with the same platform that is Volkswagen’s MLB platform. However, S5 Cabriolet comes with the more powerful engine, so this is definitely the better option if you want to drive a car with high performance.
2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet Specifications
Interior, Exterior Design
The ‘acoustic’ fabric top is one of the most noteworthy elements in 2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet. The soft top contributes to reducing the weight up to 88 pounds. Furthermore, since it comes with more insulation, road noise and wind will be blocked out even better.
Even though the weight is reduced, the car actually gets larger. The wheelbase is 0.6” bigger, and the length is increased by 1.9”, as a result, we can expect more spacious leg room in this car.
This S5 Cabrio convertible car will be equipped with various driving assistance features such as collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control. While Audi’s Virtual Cockpit is available for A5 Cabriolet, this feature is still not confirmed in S5.
Engine, Drivetrain specs — 2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet
First of all, let us refresh our mind about the powertrain of the current S5 Cabriolet. 3.0 L TFSI supercharged V6 engine powers the 2017 model that delivers 333 HP and 325 lb-feet of torque. That is impressive.
But since 2018 S5 Cabriolet will put even more emphasis on the power, that engine is ditched and replaced by 3.0 L turbocharged V6 engine that is rated at 354 HP and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Consequently, the new engine produces 21 more HP and 44 more torque compared to the older engine. However, despite the additional power, the 0-62 mph time remains at 5.1 seconds just like its predecessor and the top speed is still limited at 155 mph. Opposite to the current model that is mated to 6-speed manual transmission, the new engine will be paired to 8-speed automatic transmission, and Quattro All-Wheel Drive is standard.
