More space, more tech and more power for stunning new A5 range
The all-new Audi A5 has been announced and we have been able to get an exclusive viewing which we would like to share with you. The A5 will arrive in coupe form in November, with the Sportback following in January 2017 and Cabriolet soon after that.
Retaining the A5’s distinctive profile, there are some new creases on the sides, plus a wider-looking rear end with slimmer LED tail lights. The S5 uses a new aluminium version of Audi’s turbocharged V6, which now produces 354PS (23 more than before) and 500Nm of torque, resulting in a 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds.
For the rest of the range, there are three diesels and one other petrol. The petrol unit is a 2.0 TFSI with 190PS, while you can pick from a choice of 2.0 or 3.0 TDI diesels, with an ultra variant being the most efficient. Less weight, a more aerodynamic design and new engines mean efficiency improvements of up to 22 per cent (for the 3.0-litre TDI).
