The Audi A5 Sportback, the A5 Coupé and the A5 Cabriolet now feature a new, tauter look and cutting-edge technology. Mild hybrid engines offer greater comfort while also reducing fuel consumption.
Audi has significantly revised the exterior, with the front end, in particular, exuding an even more powerful resolve. The Singleframe with the honeycomb grille is flatter and somewhat wider. Ventilation slits above the grille are reminiscent of the classic Audi Sport quattro from 1984. A bold blade forms the lower edge of the bumper, which features larger air inlets. A new sill provides for a slimmer appearance when viewed from the side; a diffuser insert with trapezoidal tailpipes makes the back of the car look wider.
All body and engine variants in the A5 product line roll off the assembly line with LED headlights as standard equipment. Audi offers Matrix LED headlights with LED rear lights featuring dynamic turn signals as an optional upgrade. Customers opting for the top end get Matrix LED headlights including Audi laser light, LED rear lights with dynamic turn signals and dynamic light sequencing. The equipment line concept is also new. Besides the basic variant, the exterior is now available in two optional lines: advanced and S line. The S models and the A5 Cabriolet also come with their own unique look.
With its new MMI touch system, the highly connected Audi A5 offers a user experience similar to a contemporary smartphone. A 10.1-inch touch display with acoustic feedback replaces the rotary pushbutton used in previous models.
Audi connect and Audi connect plus comprise a multitude of online services, including online traffic sign and hazard information, on-street parking and the Car-to-X service traffic light information.
The Audi A5 comes standard with a Wi-Fi hotspot. The driver controls the full-HD, 12.3-inch display of the Audi virtual cockpit plus via the multifunction steering wheel and can choose between three views. This is complemented by a head-up display that projects important information into the driver’s direct field of view.
Eight engine variants of the updated Audi A5 models are available. The palette comprises five TDI and three TFSI engines. Four A5 engine variants are equipped with a mild hybrid system (MHEV). A belt alternator starter, which is connected to the crankshaft, recovers energy during deceleration and stores this in a compact lithium-ion battery.
All A5 models are equipped with an automatic transmission, either a seven-speed S tronic or an eight-speed tiptronic. quattro drive is available as an option for the mid-range engine variants and comes standard with the three most powerful ones.
