The new Audi A5 is the new sporty offering from the German marque and will be positioned above the Audi A4. The new A5, along with its new lightweight construction and Matrix LED headlamps, LED tail-lamps, incorporates a dynamic stance with more pronounced lines than the outgoing model, which make it look more aggressive on the road.

Inside, the new A5 is slightly larger than the outgoing model and features more weight saving materials to keep the car on the lighter side. The A5 also gets the Virtual Cockpit with a 12.3-inch TFT screen to replace the traditional dials. The car also gets the new 7.0-inch Audi MMI with a rotary dial while the optional MMI touch is also available to replace the dial. There is also a new HUD (Head-Up Display) in the new car, so the driver doesn’t have to take his eyes off the road. The A5 also can be equipped with an optional 3D Bang & Olufsen sound system producing 755 W through 19 speakers. Overall, the new A5 is shaping up well, packing a hefty load of equipment while also losing 60 kg of weight over the last model.

In the A5 Sportback, power goes to the front wheels, whereas the A5 Cabriolet gets quattro all-wheel drive. Power flows through a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch automatic gearbox.

The other offering is the new S5 Sportback. It packs a 3.0-litre TFSI V6 that makes 354 PS and 500 Nm; 21 PS and 60 Nm more than the outgoing model. The power flows from the new eight-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels through the quattro all-wheel-drive system.
