Are you looking for a car with sexy styling and mighty engine? If yes, then the required car for you is Audi A5. Let’s have a look at this bad boy!
The Audi A5 is a series of compact executive cars made by the German automobile manufacturer Audi since 2007. The A5 range includes the coupe, cabriolet, and Sport back version of the Audi A4 saloon and estate models.
Audi A5 comes 4,673mm long, 1,846 wide and 1,371mm tall. That makes it longer than a BMW 4 Series but a little shorter than the Mercedes C-Class Coupe. It’s not as tall as either of its competitors but it is the widest, which means more space for rear passengers.
The new A5 has 10 litres of more boot space against the model it replaces, though, at 465 litres but still 10 litres less than the A4 Saloon on which it is based. Fortunately, the boot is still larger than the 440-litre luggage room in the BMW and 400 liters in the Mercedes.
The new Audi A5 is not much different from the old model in terms of styling. The sloping roofline gives its some visual impact but the lines and overall shape of the coupe are quite unchanged. The body is a little bigger but also narrower than the predecessor and the bonnet helps separating it further from its A4 saloon sibling. Optional LED headlights also bring a new lighting signature and have been developed to avoid dazzling other road users when they’re driving towards you. As standard every A5 comes fitted with xenon headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, LED daytime running lights, three-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and Audi’s MMI infotainment system.
With the all-new A5, Audi has fixed to what it knows and developed a refined and luxurious coupe, if not one that is overly exciting. However, a fabulous cabin crammed with technology, a range of frugal engines and a wealth of standard kit makes the A5 a competent all-round coupe.
Two TFSI petrol and three TDI diesel engines are offered in the A5 coupe – power ranges from 187bhp to 282bhp. Across the range, the new A5 is 17 percent more powerful than the previous model and also 22 percent more efficient. The range kicks off with the 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine, competent of hitting 0-62mph in 7.7 seconds. Adding Quattro all-wheel drive reduces that to 7.2 seconds but fuel economy does suffer. The other two available diesel options are a 215bhp and 282bhp versions of the 3.0-litre V6 engine. The previous can cover 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds, while the last mentioned comes with Quattro all-wheel drive as standard.
At the top of the range stands the S5 Coupe, powered by a new turbocharged 349bhp 3.0-litre V6, Audi claims it can hit 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds. The only other petrol option is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder, developing either 187bhp or 248bhp.
To end, we can say that Audi A5 is a great threat for all its rivals. And if you want to upscale your standard, then Audi A5 is not only a good option but rather a perfect one.
