Audi RS5 review – finally an M4 beater? - MPG and running costs
Unfazed by all weathers, the RS5 offers huge performance and refinement, although it still wants for more character.
Downsizing to the smaller turbo-unit has improved fuel consumption by 24 per cent over the old model. Standing in a petrol station forecourt is one place you certainly won’t miss the free-breathing V8.
In our long term RS5 we’ve managed to exceed the claimed 32.5mpg on a combined cycle, achieving 34mpg on a cruise up to Scotland. This instance aside, the mpg has failed to escape the twenties, with the poorest return of 22.3mpg over 884 miles and best of 28.1mpg.
