Audi-S-Models

High power, understated, with ample features and a high degree of everyday practicality – all of these strengths come together in the Audi S models. Each model applies its power to the road with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.

Audi S1 and S1 Sportback

The S1 and the S1 Sportback are the most compact S models from Audi. A package of complex technologies imbues them with special dynamics – without detracting from their everyday practicality.

Propulsive power comes from a 2.0 TFSI that produces 170 kW (231 hp) and up to 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque. It accelerates the three-door S1 from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.8 seconds. The top speed for each is 250 km/h (155.3 mph). The two-liter turbocharged engine, with its sporty and sonorous sound, has a combined fuel consumption of just 7.0 or 7.1 liters of fuel per 100 km (33.6 US mpg or 33.1 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 162 or 166 grams per km (260.7 or 267.2 g/mi).

A six-speed manual transmission transfers engine power to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. At its heart is a hydraulic multi-plate clutch that is mounted on the rear axle. Torque vectoring completes its work with finely metered brake interventions at the wheels at the inside of a curve.

The chassis of the compact sport models have been thoroughly revised, and the electromechanical power steering has been specially developed. The pivot bearings on the front suspension have been modified, and a four-link rear suspension guarantees dynamic handling. The setup is sporty and stiff; the adjustable dampers are controlled via the standard Audi drive select dynamic handling system. Powerful brakes ensure superior braking performance; 17‑inch wheels are standard.

Audi S1

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.3 – 7.0 (32.2 – 33.6 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 168 – 162 (270.4 – 260.7 g/mi)

Audi S1 Sportback

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.3 – 7.1 (32.2 – 33.1 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 168 – 166 (270.4 – 267.2 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi S3, S3 Sportback, S3 Sedan and S3 Cabriolet

The Audi S3, S3 Sportback, S3 Sedan and S3 Cabriolet offer superior performance and groundbreaking efficiency. Their 2.0 TFSI engine produces 221 kW (300 hp) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque. The high-performance four‑cylinder unit combines cutting-edge technologies – dual injection into the combustion chambers and into the induction manifold, integration of the exhaust manifold in the cylinder head, the Audi valvelift system and a rotary valve module for the thermal management system.

In interaction with the optional six-speed S tronic (standard in the Cabriolet), the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes just 4.8 seconds in the Audi S3. The figure is 4.9 seconds for the Sportback and Sedan, while the Cabriolet takes 5.4 seconds. With a manual transmission (not available in the Cabriolet), sprint times increase by four-tenths of a second. The 250 km/h (155.3 mph) top speed is electronically governed.

The sonorous-sounding four-cylinder turbocharged engine in the Audi S3, in the S3 Sportback and in the S3 Sedan (each with S tronic) gives the models a combined fuel consumption of just 6.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (34.1 US mpg) (159 g CO2 per km (255.9 g/mi)). With a manual transmission, the figure is 7.1 liters (33.1 US mpg) (162 g CO2 per km (260.7 g/mi)), and in the Cabriolet 7.2 liters (32.7 US mpg) (165 g CO2 per km (265.5 g/mi)). A newly developed multi-plate clutch in the quattro drivetrain manages the flow of power to the front and rear wheels.

A key factor in the dynamic performance of the premium compact model is its lightweight design. The Audi S3 has a curb weight of just 1,395 kilograms (3,075.4 lb) – by far a best figure in its market segment. Compared with the previous models, the weight has been reduced by as much as 70 kilograms (154.3 lb), with the body accounting for a large share of this. The S3 Cabriolet has a lightweight cloth top with an electrohydraulic drive.

The S sport suspension lowers the vehicle body by 25 millimeters (1.0 in). Large brakes are mounted behind the 18‑inch wheels. Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) intervenes with very fine response. The new power-assisted progressive steering varies the steering ratio. It is somewhat more indirect around the center position and very direct when steering sharply. Audi drive select is standard, with Audi magnetic ride available as an option.

Audi S3

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.1 – 6.9 (33.1 – 34.1 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 164 – 159 (263.9 – 255.9 g/mi)

Audi A3 Sportback

(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi S5 Sportback, S5 Coupé and S5 Cabriolet

The 3.0 TFSI with 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) is also used in the S5 model series. The S5 Coupé sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.9 seconds. Its combined fuel consumption is just 7.7 liters per 100 km (30.5 US mpg) with CO2 emissions of 162 g per km (260.7 g/mi). Key figures for the Audi S5 Sportback are 7.7 liters per 100 km (30.5 US mpg), 179 g CO2 per km (288.1 g/mi) and 5.1 seconds; for the Audi S5 Cabriolet they are 7.9 liters (29.8 US mpg), 184 g/km (296.1 g/mi) and 5.4 seconds.

A seven-speed S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive is standard with all three S models. The quattro driving experience can be further enhanced with the optional sport differential. The stiff tuning of the S sport suspension is achieved by electronic damper control and dynamic steering. Both of these optional systems may be integrated in the optional Audi drive select. The S5 models ride on 18-inch aluminum wheels.

Audi S5 Sportback

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.9 – 7.7 (29.8 – 30.5 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 184 – 179 (296.1 – 288.1 g/mi)

Audi S5 Coupé

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.9 – 7.7 (29.8 – 30.5 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 184 – 178 (296.1 – 286.5 g/mi)

Audi S5 Cabriolet

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 8.1 – 7.9 (29.0 – 29.8 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 189 – 184 (304.2 – 296.1 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi S6 and Audi S6 Avant

The Audi S6 and the S6 Avant, which were both redesigned in 2014, are sports cars for every day driving. Their V8 biturbo engine, the 4.0 TFSI, delivers 331 kW (450 hp) of power and generates 550 Nm (405.7 lb-ft) of torque, enabling both models to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.6 seconds. The power passes via a seven-speed S tronic to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. Audi also complements quattro with the optional sport differential.

Combined fuel consumption for the sedan is only 9.2 liters per 100 kilometers (25.6 US mpg) with emissions of 214 g CO2 per km (344.4 g/mi). Figures for the Avant are 9.4 liters per 100 kilometers (25.0 US mpg) with emissions of 219 g CO2 per km (352.4 g/mi). Also contributing to this efficiency is the cylinder on demand (COD) system, which deactivates four cylinders when under partial load.

During these phases, Active Noise Control (ANC) largely eliminates intrusive noise by outputting precise counterphase soundwaves to the cabin through the sound system’s speakers. At the same time, active engine bearings use counterpulses to attenuate low-frequency vibrations.

Both S models come standard with adaptive air suspension sport. The taut air suspension with variable damping lowers the body by 10 millimeters (0.4 in). The front disc brakes behind the 19-inch wheels have matt black calipers with S6 logos. Audi offers carbon fiber-ceramic disks as an option. The Audi drive select dynamics system also incorporates the optional sport differential and dynamic steering.

Audi S6

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.4 – 9.2 (25.0 – 25.6 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 218 – 214 (350.8 – 344.4 g/mi)

Audi S6 Avant

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.6 – 9.4 (24.5 – 25.0 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 224 – 219 (360.5 – 352.4 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi S7 Sportback

The same engine used in the S6 and S6 Avant – the 4.0 TFSI with 309 kW (420 hp) and 550 Nm (405.7 lb-ft) of torque – is also used in the Audi S7 Sportback. This unit accelerates the five-door coupe from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.6 seconds. The V8 biturbo engine, which uses cylinder on demand (COD) technology including ANC and active engine bearings when under part load, has a combined fuel consumption of just 9.3 liters per 100 kilometers (25.3 US mpg) with emissions of 215 g CO2 per km (346.0 g/mi).

Power transmission in the S7 Sportback is provided by the seven-speed S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive; Audi can also install an optional sport differential. The adaptive air suspension sport and the Audi drive select dynamics system are standard features. The wheels are 19-inch. Dynamic steering and sports exhaust for enhancing engine noise are available as options.

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.5 – 9.3 (24.8 – 25.3 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 220 – 215 (354.1 – 346.0 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi S8

The S8, with a power output of 382 kW (520 hp), is the large sport sedan from Audi. Its sonorous 4.0 TFSI accelerates the S8 from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.1 seconds. Nonetheless, its combined fuel consumption is just 9.6 liters per 100 km (24.5 US mpg), and it emits 225 grams CO2 per km (362.1 g/mi). Here too, the COD (cylinder on demand) system plays a major role. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) sends precise phase-cancellation noise into the interior over the sound system’s speakers to compensate for noise generated in the cabin when running on four cylinders.

An eight-speed tiptronic distributes the power of the V8 engine to a quattro drivetrain with a sport differential. Among the chassis highlights are the adaptive sport air suspension and dynamic steering, both with S8-specific tuning. The standard wheels are size 9 J x 20. An alternative to the powerful steel brake discs are disks made of carbon fiber and ceramic.

Many exterior design details express the special positioning of the S8. The sporty top-of-the-line model, which is only available with the standard wheelbase, comes with very generous standard equipment.

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.4 (25.0 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 216 (347.6 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi SQ5 TDI and SQ5 TFSI

The SQ5 TDI is the first S model from Audi to be equipped with a diesel engine; it also fulfills the EU6 emissions standard. The 3.0 TDI, boosted by two turbochargers, produces 230 kW (313 hp), and its torque curve plateaus at 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) over a broad range of engine speeds. In the SQ5 TDI competition, it delivers 10 kW (13 hp) extra power. A sound actuator in the exhaust system gives the V6 biturbo a deep, sonorous sound.

The Audi SQ5 TDI needs just 5.2 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) (SQ5 TDI competition: 5.1 seconds), and it has a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph).

It sips just 6.6 liters of fuel per 100 km (35.6 US mpg), and its CO2 emissions are 174 grams per km (280.0 g/mi). A fast and smooth-shifting eight-speed tiptronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive deliver its power to the road. The taut S sport suspension lowers the body 30 millimeters (1.2 in). The wheels measure 20 inches in diameter.

For markets such as the USA, Russia and China, the SQ5 is equipped with a more powerful 3.0 TFSI engine which produces 260 kW (354 hp) and 470 Nm (346.7 lb-ft) of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes 5.3 seconds. The combined fuel consumption of the Audi SQ5 3.0 TFSI is 8.5 liters per 100 km (27.7 US mpg) with CO2 emissions of 199 grams per km (320.3 g/mi).

Audi SQ5 TDI

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 6.6 (35.6 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 174 (280.0 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi TTS and Audi TTS Roadster

The new TTS Coupe and TTS Roadster top the TT model range. Their 2.0 TFSI engines produce 221 kW (300 hp) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque. The coupe accelerates from stationary to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.9 seconds, and on to a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). With the optional S tronic transmission the figure drops to 4.6 seconds. The figures for the Roadster are 5.2 seconds and 4.9 seconds (with manual transmission and S tronic respectively).

In the NEDC cycle, the sonorous four-cylinder engine in the coupe has a fuel consumption of just 7.1 liters per 100 km (33.1 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 164 g/km (263.9 g/mi). With the S tronic the figures are 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers (35.1 US mpg) and 155 grams of CO2 per kilometer (249.4 g/mi). The figures for the Roadster (manual/S tronic) are 7.3/6.9 liters per 100 kilometers (32.2/34.1 US mpg) and 169/159 grams CO2 per kilometer (272.0/255.9 g/mi).

Playing a major role in this concerto of efficiency are highly-effective technologies from Audi – indirect fuel injection as a supplement to FSI injection, the Audi valvelift system for the exhaust valves, and thermal management with integration of the exhaust manifold in the cylinder head.

The vehicle’s low weight also makes a contribution towards reducing fuel consumption. The TTS Coupé weighs in at a curb weight of just 1,365 kg (3,009.3 lb) – a figure that is largely attributable to the use of ultra high-strength steel and aluminum in the body. The Roadster has a curb weight of just 1,450 kilograms (3,196.7 lb).

Both TTS models transfer their power to the road via quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The wheels are 18 inches in diameter, and the Audi drive select dynamic handling system is standard equipment. Progressive steering varies the steering gear ratio according to the steering wheel input, and torque vectoring complements the work of the quattro drive system at cornering performance limits. The body sits ten millimeters (0.4 in) lower, and the adaptive electronic damping system Audi magnetic ride is standard equipment. New, very lightweight aluminum fixed caliper brakes with large disks are used on the front wheels.

The standard S sport seats with integrated head restraints also follow lightweight design principles. The Audi virtual cockpit offers a special S view mode, in which a large tachometer is the central focus.
