2021 Audi S5 – Review, Specs, Configurations, Prices, and Interior

2021 Audi S5

MSRP: $52,500 - $60,600










  • It grabs more attention than an S4.
  • It provides safe handling.
  • It's a lovely cruiser.
  • It comes with a powerful and adaptable V6 engine.
  • It has a beautifully finished cabin.


  • It has an impact on the rear-seat room due to its design.
  • There is only average interior storage space.


The efficient powertrain of the 2021 Audi S5 is matched by a well-tuned chassis that neatly mixes handling precision with a comfortable ride. Although an electromechanical steering setup doesn’t provide as much feedback as a mechanical setup, the quickness of Audi’s technology is impossible to fault in the real world. 

More miniature goods will have to be stored in the interior, which is average rather than superb. Front cupholders are generously sized, and both front and rear door bins are included. A fold-down rear armrest with two extra cupholders and a center console storage area round out the possibilities for storing wallets, keys, water bottles, and phones. The Audi S5 is available in three trim levels for 2021, but the base Premium isn’t spartan.

Heated exterior mirrors, 12-way power front seats with heating and massaging functions, a panoramic sunroof, a power tailgate, and automated climate control with individual settings for three zones are included in this variant. Lane departure warning will be retained for the 2021 model year, including a rearview camera and Audi pre sense basic/pre sense city.

Convertible power virtual cockpit display, power-folding exterior mirrors, a top-view camera system, front/rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic assist, adaptive cruise control, and car exit warning are included when upgrading to the Premium Plus. Of course, a rearview camera is included. This is included in the Prestige and heated back seats, Audi laser light, and a head-up display.

2021 Audi S5 Interior

What is the seating capacity?

The Audi S5 4-door has a total seating capacity of five people with three seats in the back. On the other hand, the back seat is best suited for just two people, as there is less legroom and headroom than in the S4.

Interior Quality

The S5’s interior is beautifully elegant. However, it lags behind the RS5’s cabin, including the great Audi virtual cockpit as standard equipment from the lowest grade.

Cargo Space

When the rear hatch is opened, the S5 Sportback offers 21.8 cubic feet of cargo space. It has enough room for large luggage and a couple of smaller suitcases, as well as a week’s worth of shopping.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Although the base S5 doesn’t come with the fantastic virtual cockpit as standard, it offers excellent infotainment technology such as AM/FM/HD, seek-scan radio, 2 – 1st row LCD monitor. Audi’s MMI software runs on a 10.1-inch touchscreen, and it supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Bluetooth streaming.

Should I Buy a 2021 Audi S5?

While the Premium Plus trim in the new Audi S5 coupe selection delivers a fair blend of price and quality, we’d like power stretch for the top-end Prestige instead. With a starting price of $60,600, this model comes with a complete safety package that includes a head-up display and traffic sign recognition, a powerful premium sound system, and Audi’s virtual cockpit. Add in the Warm Weather Package and Dynamic Steering (which requires the S Sport Package), and you’ve got a well-rounded coupe for around $65k.
