    2019 Audi RS5 Sportback - Time-frame?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey all, been a few years since I've logged in... Been living in the Mopar world for quite a while and getting sick of the quality. After having a couple of Hellcats, we are needing speed but a much nicer car... So, we are looking at a 2019 RS5 and since we have 2 kids, need the Sportback. Dealership isn't helpful and they just say "They're coming out" but won't give a time frame? Any ideas?

    Hey Ricky Ricer, you from Lakewood, WA or another Lakewood? I'm down in Rochester... What dealer did you go through to get your car (if bought new.)

    Check out this other thread: https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...-until-Q1-2019

    Sounds like ordering isn't going to open for a couple of months and first customer orders will likely be Q1. I haven't heard anything from my sales guy for about a month and I have no doubt he will call me as soon as he knows something new.

    I spoke with a dealership in Dallas today and they said the 2019 ordering for the 2019 S5 is now open with no pricing yet, but the RS 5 Sportback should be available with in a week or two. He said they are expecting the cars to arrive by Nov/ Dec this year. I put a deposit down for the first one they can order. He said pricing should be at or slightly under the coupe (if you can believe that) base price of around $74K for 2019. I can not wait to see the colors.....

    That bump from the 2018 base of $70k to 2019 $74k seems to be in line since they are including the Navigation Package and a few other things that were options in 2018 in the 2019 base model.

    Audi AutoNation (Dallas Tollway and Plano..) I at first order a 2019 Quantum Grey S5 Sportback (new option color for 2019) I love nardo grey but not willing to pay 3-4K for the color and frankly I like the darker Quantum grey better. however, for 16K more for the RS5 Sportback (approx) You get; better interior, Wider front and back fenders (almost 2 inches), 100 more horse power, Nicer honeycomb grill, Nicer wheels, bigger spoiler in back, more rare car (hold its value better) etc.. So we will see what the options are and go from there. Unforuantly they will not discount the car....which I got a $3,600 discount to order the 2019...not great but there is nothing close I like in this price range. I drove the 2018 Daytona Charger. Very funs and what a deal for the car....But Im to snobbie for a Dodge (being honest) and I like the Kia Stinger's( 52K) looks but again can not get past the KIA badge.....also looked at the Genesis 70's series....nicer but not for (55K) (IF you do not me ranting)....if I got the 2019 S5 sportback..I would waste money on changing the grill, wheels, exhaust, rear spoiler, anti-roll bars, etc..and wish I had the RS 5....So I either get the car I want and spend a little extra, or not get a car at all.

    First RS5 Sportback review I've seen so far:

    I noticed the price was $5k higher than I was expecting, but if they're including nav and other options as standard than that makes sense.

    In the link I posted, I looooooooove the wheels compared to the 2018. I really disliked the 2018 wheels but the machine silver looks great with the added lines. Ambient lighting looks nice too.

    From some of these other post it looks like the $75,195 price noted above included the $995 destination charge so the actual base price is $74,200

    I'm totally with you on that! Get what you REALLY want, instead of trying to make what you get into what you really wanted in the first place.

    Just FYI, I was at my dealer this weekend to check in on my '19 RS5 SB delivery ETA. System shows a build date of Oct 15 and arrival on the east coast port facility Nov 20. So I expect I'll see it sometime in mid-December.

    My dealer was only alotted one car, which I filled with a custom order. They don't know when another allotment will open. For Canada, dealers are getting only one for most parts of the country. I'm sure the US is quite a bit higher.

    Interesting...you are saying that this an "Allotment based car"...so limited number per dealership? I never hear this at all.....how do you know this? thanks for your info...because if this true then the MSRP deal I have is very nice indeed. and very special. please advise...

    That's pretty standard with lower volume vehicles. Higher volume dealerships are awarded a larger allotment. Several dealers have told me the same thing.

    Don, I think you misinterpreted what was being said. The RS5 Sportback is not an "allotment based car". A few of us on audizine.com and audiworld.com have been able to reserve and customize some of the initial allocated RS5 SB going to the dealerships. These are just the first batch going out to the dealers and will be available sooner then when the official order guide becomes available for ordering.

    Our Audi store has a Glacier car at port now. We ordered (6) earlier this month (mine included) and I hope they donít arrive until Q1. My new SQ arrives in Nov. Two arriving so close would stress me out, lol.
