The 2017 Audi S5 Sportback (B9) is an all-wheel drive coupé built by Audi from late 2016, after its unveiling in June 2016. Its Sportback trim adds rear doors and a hatchback rear.

It is part of the second generation model line following on from the Audi S5 (B8) that had been in production since 2007.

Fitted with a 3-litre V6 engine, the S5 has direct injection as well as a twin-scroll turbocharger to reduce both weight and cost. The turbocharger is mounted within the engine and as a result has reduced response times.

The quattro all-wheel drive system receives power through a locking centre differential that splits torque sent to the wheels at 40% to the front and 60% to the rear. The system can also divert up to 70% to the front or up to 85% to the rear.


Need for Speed: Payback

The Audi S5 Sportback appears in Need for Speed: Payback following its appearance during the game's reveal trailer, in which the car's interior can be briefly seen with Jess in the driver's seat.

It was later revealed during a developer interview with PlayStation Live at E3 2017 alongside the Buick Regal GNX.


It is unlocked for purchase from the drift, race, and runner class dealerships upon completing three questlines in chapter 3 - City Lights.
