notes. Tomorrow at this hour we meet the new Audi A5. Audi presents its coupe reference, and it does it by giving a further step in the renewal that began with the relay race of generations of Audi TT, Audi Q7, Audi A4, and more recently, the facelift of the Audi A3. The new Audi A5 Coupe 2016 will be, probably, a compendium of all the technologies and improvements that we have already seen in all of these models. Which leads us to ask some questions, what will be this Audi A5 something more than a version of two doors of the Audi A4? Do you seek to differentiate themselves in some way, especially in specific details such as your front?
1. How do you differentiate an Audi A5 from an Audi A4?
you would agree that if there is something that characterizes Audi is by maintaining a very homogeneous throughout their range of products, especially in their front. That means that often we struggle to differentiate between two Audi ranges are very different, when you look at your front, so that sometimes we will only be able to differentiate between them if we have a very good eye, and we know what those concrete details that differentiate them.
The new Audi A5 does not appear to be an exception. Your front will be virtually the same as that of the Audi A4. What we can disclose is that the design of the headlights, although similar, will not be exactly the same as (see image below, with a beacon in the Audi A5 to the left and the lighthouse of the Audi A4 to the right). Maybe that will help us to differentiate an Audi A4 of the Audi A5 when we come across one of them from the front, don’t you think?
2. And how will be on the inside?
, excepting the fact that the Audi A5 will enjoy two doors, and two rear seats in his version of the A5 Coupe, your dashboard will be almost the same as that of the Audi A4, whose picture you see above. That means you will host a few finishes, more refined, a new integration – type tablet – entertainment system, and even a dashboard is completely digital, the Audi virtual cockpit.
3. What engines will be available?
once more, the Audi A4 is the reference. The new Audi A5 will use exactly the same engines that the sedan of reference of Audi, with which we assume that there will be alternatives, four-cylinder, diesel and gasoline, as the 2.0 TDI of 150 HP, the 2.0 TDI 190 HP, the 1.4 TFSI 150 HP and a 2.0 TFSI 190-HP that we have already tried and we liked it especially.
there will Also be six-cylinder engines, like the famous 3.0 TDI V6 that will be available in 218 and 272 HP of power.
sportsmanship, for the moment, will put a Audi S5 with V6 engine 3.0 TFSI 354 HP. Later there will be an Audi RS5 even more powerful eight-cylinder.
4. What will be the most important improvements of this Audi A5?
Without having tried it, we’d be able to tell you in what line it will have evolved this Audi A5, because it will be exactly the same that you have already followed the Audi Q7, and especially the Audi A4, yes we have tested. The new Audi A5 will use a new platform, and solutions of lightening that will lead, predictably, to weight loss up to about 120 kilograms. With that solution, and with the improvements we are making Audi to improve agility, handling, and the touch of their cars, we expect this Audi A5 is a lot more fun at the wheel. Thing that obviously we can’t confirm until I try. It is likely that the Audi A5 to follow it without hooking driving as much as their rivals, but as seen in the Audi A4 we assume that this distance will be clipped
