The A5 Sportback is a design masterpiece from Audi. Its flowing silhouette, sharp lines and muscular surfaces make a strong statement. The car’s interior also exudes elegance and sportiness, and its controls are intuitive to use. Optional sport seats or climate-controlled comfort seats are available for the driver and front passenger. The rear seating system can be equipped with three seats as an option. The luggage compartment beneath the long hatch holds between 480 and 1,283 liters (17.0 and 45.3 cu ft) of cargo.

The engine lineup offers customers many different possibilities. The power of the engines ranges from 100 kW (136 hp) to 200 kW (272 hp), and four V6 engines with three liters of displacement are at the top of this range. The 2.0 TDI ultra with 100 kW (136 hp) consumes just 4.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (56.0 US mpg) and emits 109 grams CO2 per km (175.4 g/mi).

(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi offers the ideal transmission for each engine – six-speed manual, multitronic or seven-speed S tronic. The more powerful versions are available with quattro permanent all-wheel drive as standard or optional equipment. A sport differential can be ordered with the six-cylinder engine with all-wheel drive.

Audi A5 Chassis

The five-link front suspension and trapezoidal-link rear suspension of the Audi A5 Sportback consist primarily of aluminum. The power steering system is driven by an electric motor. All A5 versions with front-wheel drive have Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) with an electronic limited-slip differential. The optional Audi drive select system – with its selectable characteristic maps – can integrate the optional sport differential, dynamic steering and chassis with damper control.

Audi A5 Equipment and trim

The optional driver assistance systems are Audi side assist, Audi active lane assist and adaptive cruise control. The infotainment systems are also top quality. MMI navigation plus may be combined with the Audi connect module including car phone online. The latter delivers online services to the car and can connect up to eight mobile devices to the internet via Wi-Fi.

Audi A5 Coupé

The Audi A5 Coupé is a modern classic with its elegant lines – in 2010 it received the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany. Audi is equipping the two-door with powerful engines − the 1.8 TFSI already outputs 130 kW (177 hp), and the 3.0 TFSI produces 200 kW (272 hp) of power. The entry-level engine, the 2.0 TDI ultra, only consumes 4.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (56.0 US mpg) in the NEDC cycle and emits 109 g CO2 per km (175.4 g/mi).

  • 2.0 TDI ultra with 120 kW (163 hp)
  • 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TDI quattro with 140 kW (190 hp)
  • 3.0 TDI quattro with 160 kW (218 hp)
  • 3.0 TDI quattro with 180 kW (245 hp)

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.7 – 4.2 (30.5 – 56.0 US mpg)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 179 – 109 (288.1 – 175.4 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Available transmissions include the six-speed manual, multitronic and seven-speed S tronic, depending on the engine selected. The quattro lineup covers the majority of engines. The sport differential is available as an option with the most powerful diesel and gasoline engines. Optional chassis features are Audi drive select, dynamic steering and electronic damper control.

The list of standard and optional features is largely identical to that for the Audi A5 Sportback. The same is true for the driver assistance systems, infotainment and Audi connect services.

Audi A5 Cabriolet

The Audi four-seat convertible in the mid-class market segment is known as the A5 Cabriolet. Its fully automatic cloth top opens or closes in just 15 seconds. Audi can deliver an acoustic top as an option. When the top is lowered, it folds into a small package that leaves 320 liters (11.3 cu ft) of cargo capacity in the trunk (capacity when the soft top is raised: 380 liters [13.4 cu ft]). The folding rear seat backs expand luggage capacity to 750 liters (26.5 cu ft).

Reinforcements in the body compensate for the lack of the fixed roof. Head‑thorax side airbags and aluminum plates that extend automatically as rollover protection are ready to deploy in case of a crash. A wind deflector and automatic belt feeds for the front seats underscore the comfortable character of the A5 Cabriolet; Audi offers headroom heating as an option. A special coating for the likewise optional leather seats prevents their surfaces from heating up too much in the sun.
