    Adjustable suspension on 2019 Sportback

    I'm trying to decide if adjustable suspension is something I need (Canadian model). I think for me the appearance is actually more important so does the regular sport suspension or the adjustable one have different height springs? I'm looking at various photos and some S5 Sportbacks, even in Audi press photos which should be stock, appear to have lower ride heights and some look more 4x4. Do they use different spring heights in different markets also?

    Second, is the regular s port suspension about the same stiffness as sport mode in the adjustable one, or middle setting? Does comfort make a difference as far as keeping the car less squeaky on bumpy roads?

    No, the adjustable suspension on the S5 (or any Audi) only refers to the firmness and not height adjustable. Some photos are EU cars which have a slightly lower stock height for some models.

    I canít speak to the ride firmness between settings and various stock set ups.
