The RS5 is right in line with its competition. Edmunds tested the RS5 0-60 in 4.3 seconds (4.1 seconds with 1 foot of rollout) and the quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds at 110.8 mph. A C63 Coupe (12.3 seconds at 116.3 mph); an M3 (12.8 seconds at 111.2 mph). The CTS-V (12.2 seconds at 117.5 mph).

RS5 is the only car in its class without a gas guzzler tax.

Op, if your main concern is fuel economy, I dont think there is any high revving(8500rpm redline) car that achieves 16/23mpg like the Rs5 does. Truly a feat for such a high revving engine. For reference, an m3 achieves 14/20mpg.
