2018 Audi RS5: Love It Or Loathe It?

During the Geneva Motor Show, Audi lifted the veils off its brand new RS5 coupe. One look and it’s obvious that this is a sexy beast.

This all-new RS5 will be arriving with the Porsche Panamera’s 2.9L turbo V6 mill but the Audi will be able to produce up to 450 horsepower with 442 lb-ft of torque.

There’s no doubt that Audi has become much bolder for the 2018MY and this can be seen in the aggressive exterior of the 2018 RS5. The new model looks far more meaner compared to its predecessor.

The 2018 RS5 boasts bigger and wider headlights and its lower grille appear to have much larger openings. The automaker states this model will be able to record 60mph in just 3.9 seconds while hitting a top speed of 174mph.

However, could too much aggression be a bad thing? Well, that’s what most fans feel about Audi’s latest. These folks aren’t happy that the company has compromised its signature sleek style to venture into edgier looks for its new model.

A survey through the many threads on Reddit reveal that fans hated the fact that the RS5 came with too much angles. This is especially since they are accustomed to smooth lines often seen on an Audi.

That said, some folks felt that the model just needs getting used to while other felt that pictures don’t really reveal how the model truly looks.

Well, opinions are pretty much polarizing right now but we want to know what you think of Audi’s all-new RS5? Do you love it or loathe it?

  • Loathe it! I owned a 2015 RS5 and this refresh is horrible… I would not even consider it any more Vs Mercedes and BMW offerings. The A/S/RS5 was a timeless design of pure elegance and muscle… this new one is automotive butchery, Walter DeSilva left at the wrong time!
