Audi is serious about their new 2018 Audi S5 coupe, branding it as an iconic production on their part. Well, Audi has every reason to be proud of it. After all, the S5 coupe is indeed a flagship production that will wow everyone. When the first A5 was introduced during the Geneva Motor Show back then n 2007, everyone was amazed at how lovely the car turned out to be. Not only it had a very artistic and beautiful design, but it also had a reliable control and great control too. Everything seemed to be great and satisfying – and this is one of the many reasons why Audi keeps insisting on producing the line.
2018 Audi S5 Coupe Overall Updates
If back then the S5 Audi was considered ‘dainty and cute,’ it wouldn’t be so with the new 2018 Audi S5 coupe. In fact, Audi has prepared it to be more masculine and manly. They assure everyone that the new model will be coming with a more aggressive line and styling. For a starter, the squat shield grille will have an aggressive furrowed hood that is pulled down over it. The signature line that strengthens the character of the ride (located on the side) is now being exaggerated into a defined and more pronounced model. The hood’s shortline has the wavy crease that has a function to cover the hood. For now, the new S5 coupe may still be able to retain the good reputation of Audi regarding technical skills and manufacturing greatness but don’t hope too much for the artistic beauty anymore because it is now more about performance and power rather than beauty and delicacy.
If you like the tough and aggressive styling, this 2018 Audi S5 coupe would be the idea option for you. The sturdy design is even visible from the design of the taillights with their 3D feature. If you compare the new production with the first iconic ride, don’t expect a jaw-dropping moment anymore. It may never happen.
2018 Audi S5 Coupe Design Changes
It seems that Audi is scratching for ideas for the creation of this 2018 Audi S5 coupe. The dash trim with the silver door appears to be taken from Lexus, and the dashboard topper seems to be taken from the old-school Beemer. Sure, there will be a new addition and refreshment with the packed surround sound system and the 3D technology, TFT-screen cluster for the entertainment, and also the 4G LTE connection for the improved comfort. But somehow, it doesn’t really wow or superb anymore. The new design may be appealing for some great, but it is not super high or super impressive anymore – especially for those who have seen the great stuff.
This new line won’t be using the V6 supercharged engine anymore as a new V6 twin-scroll turbocharger 3.0-liter engine will be utilized. This one is claimed to produce 354 hp of power, which is more powerful from the previous production. For a more detailed info, let’s wait for the official release about the 2018 Audi S5 coupe, shall we?
