As expected, the upgrades that have been made to the two-door members of the Audi family largely mirror those of the four-door variety, with a few notable surprises.
Visually, you get the same styling tweaks for across the A4/A5/S4/S5 line-up, which means a very gentle massaging of the design language that has worked so well for Audi with its most popular offerings.
From a drivetrain perspective, the A5 also seems in lock-step with the A4, as both will feature the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as the year before assuming the same jump to 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque for the coupe that we saw in the sedan .
A six-speed manual and seven-speed DCT automatic transmission remain available with both models - at least, that's the word until we get definite U.S. specifications - with the S5 confusingly being mentioned as moving to an eight-speed automatic in place of the S4's seven-speed DCT.
While both are motivated by a 3.0-liter supercharged V6, the S5 leaps to 354 horsepower, a 21-pony increase over the 333 horses available from the S4.
It's not too shocking to give a coupe a leg-up over an equivalent sedan, as the market for the S5 tends to skew more towards sports car fans, but it's the first time Audi has made this aggressive of a move in differentiating the vehicle from the S4.
