Meanwhile, Audi keeps the lineup of S5 in the same form with outgoing generation. However, it also happens on the designs and engines under its hood.

2017 Audi S5 Designs
We start from the look of 2017 Audi S5. To be honest, the styling designs and body language of this car is still interesting to be owned by modern customers. However, it is lack of fresh features especially on its designs. For your information, the entire lineup of A5 and S5 represent luxury coupes or sedans which mean customers won’t be surprised anymore with them. It should be premium and luxury. Luckily, Audi is able to keep their lineup on the original way. It means that they have maintained the luxury term even until the latest generation of S5 so far and we have to appreciate it.
