Audi A5

The A5 is the stylish coupe, also available in the performance S5 and RS5 models and finally the A5 cabriolet.

The A5 comes with a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine, although the S5 comes with a supercharged V-6. For those wanting even more power, the V-8-powered RS5 fits the bill.

All models are distinctive, with the Audi A5 coupe and convertible sharing a common tailored look across the range.

The A5 is simply one of the best-looking cars of the past decade, and the years haven’t dulled any of its sensual appeal.

The A5 Strengths

·         Upmarket interiors in all models,

·         All models have precise handling and all weather capability of quattro all-wheel-drive.

·         Sleek headlamps

·         Audi‘s single-frame radiator grille.

The A5 epitomises Audi’s quest for high-quality cabin interiors, sleek dashboard, plenty of soft-touch materials and very user-friendly controls.

The A5 has Audi’s MMI infotainment system and Audi Connect (in-car internet connectivity) and industry-first Google Earth Integration.

The A5 is equipped with a turbo-charged and direct-injected 2.0-litre turbo, mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission, the engine returns 10.69/7.35 litres /100 kms city/highway travelling and is capable of doing zero-to-100 kmh in 6.4 seconds. An optional eight-speed automatic transmission shaves 0.2 seconds from the sprint but increases fuel consumption.

Audi’s Quattro All-wheel-drive System is standard across the board.
