2016 Audi A5 is the new second generation product in Audi’s ‘A’ series of SUVs, continuing with the coupe and cabriolet forms. It will be as gorgeous and classy as its brother, Audi A4; this one will be better looking with enhanced design and a complete re-invention by a renowned designer.
The Engine, Interiors and External Specifications:
The models in the Audi A5 coupe and convertible range will have different specifications –
- Audi A5 petrol 1.8: This one will have 180bhp and 1.8 TFSI
- Audi A5 petrol 2.0: With 245bhp and 2.0 TFSI
- Audi A5 diesel 3.0: 258bhp and 3.0 V6 TDI
It will be equipped with a six speed manual gearbox and a seven speed dual clutch automatic.
In addition to the high end engine specifications, the interiors of the car are worth to die for. There is a redesigned cabin in this new version that ensures more safety and comfort. The coupe has an impressive trunk space of 12.2 cubic feet while convertible has 10.2. Tri-zone auto climate control, panoramic sunroof, a fully fledged touch screen 6.5 inch display MMI infotainment system, connectivity with Bluetooth to the phone are some of the catching features that the 2016 Audi A5 has to offer.
The car will have an extremely well designed platform, which will be based on the VW MLB evo architecture. This ensures that the new one in the Audi ‘A’ SUV series will be more efficient but lighter due to maximum use of aluminum and stiffer too. It will also have a longer wheelbase which will give in more passenger room. The LED lighting for car is made more innovative with some of the latest designs and matrix technology. It also has additional 20 inch rims, but they are optional.

2016 Audi A5 is expected to debut around the end of this year. It is speculated that the coupe will be out first and the cabriolet later. The price will rise up a bit from the current price to $70,000 plus for the RS5 model. The base model of 2.0 liter will be priced at $40,000.
With outputs from the best designer that the automobile industry knows, this car is surely a must have possession for all those who love a combination of good engine and flawless appearance. The investment is worth it with 2016 Audi A5 being compared to be at par with other leading models.
