What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Audi A5 / S5 MPG

Audi A5 / S5 Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 2dr Coupe turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD Mileage seems to have leveled out at about 27 mpg with a 60/40 mix of highway and suburban driving. On longer trips, it has been as high as 30 mpg while driving a steady 75 mph.
2010 2dr Coupe turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual AWD Averaging 9L/100KM, without feeling too conservative.
Audi A5 / S5 Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2011 2dr Coupe 354-hp 4.2L V8 6-sp manual AWD I knew what gas mileage the S5 got long before I stepped onto the dealer lot. Still, I get 24 mpg on a full highway run.
2009 2dr Coupe turbocharged 170hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual AWD
Fuel economy is fair when going for a long ride, the car is AWD and heavy. I did however expect a somewhat lower fuel consumption when driving short-distance.
2008 2dr Coupe 354-hp 4.2L V8 6-sp manual AWD Thirsty V8 coupled with a car that was born to be driven hard equals mid-teen MPG in mostly non-highway driving.
2008 2dr Coupe 354-hp 4.2L V8 6-sp manual AWD It is not great, and if you have fun with the car, you will get less than 15MPG
2008 2dr Coupe 354-hp 4.2L V8 6-sp manual AWD drinks too fast when driving is more aggressive
