The RS 5 Cabriolet was delivered to customers in Germany in April 2013. Its base price is €88,500. The standard equipment is wide-ranging – apart from the features already mentioned, the lineup includes parking system plus, automatic belt feeders, an electromechanical parking brake, automatic climate control, wind deflector, concert radio with CD player and eight loudspeakers, a lighting package, and a restraint system package that includes six airbags, integral Audi head restraint system, and ISOFIX anchor points for child safety seats in the rear.
Customers looking for even more comfort will find what they are looking for in the Options items. The range includes the convenience key, the high-beam assist, adaptive light, head-level heating, rear seat heating, memory function for the driver’s seat and deluxe automatic air conditioning with three-zone control.
All of the assistance systems from the A5 series are available in the new Audi RS 5 Cabriolet. The driver information system with rest recommendation function is standard; it detects when the driver is getting tired.
Adaptive cruise control maintains the four-seat convertible at the required speed and at a constant distance to the vehicle ahead; at speeds below 30 km/h (18.64 mph) it can trigger emergency braking should the need arise. Audi side assist makes changing lanes safer, Audi active lane assist uses slight steering interventions in the electromechanical power steering to help the driver to stay in the driving lane, and the parking system plus with reversing camera facilitates maneuvering.
The system lineup is just as extensive when it comes to infotainment. The top-of-the-line version is the MMI navigation plus – a high-end media control center with large hard drive, DVD player and seven-inch color monitor with 3-D graphics. The Bang & Olufsen Sound System controls 12 loudspeakers with an output of 505 watts.
The Bluetooth car phone online provides the perfect complement to MMI navigation plus – it connects the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet to the Internet via a UMTS module. Passengers can use their mobile devices to seamlessly access the web via the integrated WLAN hotspot. For the driver, the system delivers customized online services from Audi connect to the car – they range from Audi online traffic information to navigation with images from Google Earth and Google Maps Street View and Audi music stream web radio.
