Seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission

The S tronic transmission uses two internal clutches to change gears in just a few hundredths of a second. With seven gears, it’s easy to stay in the powerband or maintain relaxed cruising speeds.

Audi drive select—Auto

Auto mode provides a balanced engine and chassis response.

Audi drive select—Comfort

Comfort mode favors lower shifting points and boosted steering power assistance designed for long-distance travel. And the optional Sport adaptive damping suspension[3] on the Audi S5 can soften the suspension for an absorbing drive.

Audi drive select—Dynamic

The steering is heavier for a more direct feel and the shift pattern is tuned for immediate response. And with the available Sport adaptive damping suspension, the Audi S5 is optimized for handling and body control.

Eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission

Developed to harness the power of the 349 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque of the turbocharged V6 in the S5, the eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission offers quick acceleration from the go and relaxed cruising at highway speeds.[2]

Dynamic steering

Optional on the Audi S5, dynamic steering offers a variable ratio that can adjust according to vehicle speeds and Audi drive select mode. By changing the steering ratio, dynamic steering can help improve straight-line stability at highway speeds and improve steering precision through the corners.[2]

Sport adaptive damping suspension
