2018 Audi RS5 Disappoints Fans

By  | 

During the recent Geneva Motor Show, Audi showed off its latest RS5 Coupe and it was pretty obvious that the automaker is venturing down a slightly different route, when it comes to design.

The 2018 model will be coming with the same 2.9L turbo V6 mill that is found in Porsche’s Panamera. However, the Audi will be able to juice out more – about 450 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque.

Audi is trying to be bolder in its design and it translates into the new RS5 in the form of some larger and wider headlamps. Meanwhile, the lower grille seems to have larger openings.

The company also claims that this model only needs 3.9 seconds to hit a 0 to 60mph and it records an impressive top speed of 174mph.

While some may like aggressive features on their car, not everyone is pleased with Audi’s latest model. As seen on Reddit threads, some folks think that the model is far too angular for an Audi model.

Well, do you think Audi may have missed the mark with its all-new RS5 Coupe?

    It doesnt disappoint. The changes would have needed to happen sooner or later. Audi did a great job finding a good balance and still made it compliant with the stringent new regulations
