The Audi A5 coupe is probably the finest of the time, the A5 Cabrio will continue the same momentum and perhaps even breathtaking.

The lines of designer Walter Da Silva leaves nobody untouched, it therefore seemed only natural that after the A5 Coupe, the A5 Cabrio looks in terms of competition would take. The A5 Cabrio is actually the successor of the A4 Cabrio, A4 is the variation in Ingolstadt no longer made homeless. This is nothing more than a clever marketing trick of their Audi convertible model is higher in the market to positioning. The A3 Cabrio noticeably cheaper in the range is now available for every budget a convertible in the Audi range.

Watching the A5 Cabrio is enjoying. In profile, we see very subtle lines make the car very smooth, eyes front we find the familiar single-frame Audi grille and softly shaped headlights bearing a row of LED daytime running lights. At the back we find a relatively short ass, because that Audi chose a stylish fabric roof as opposed to fold the steel caps of the competition. The back of the A5 Cabrio is characterized by two angular shaped headlights fitted with LED's on the box we find a small trunk spoiler. Our test model was also with 18 "wheels fitted, a tire that misstaat certainly not on the A5 Cabrio. The A5 Cabrio looks very stylish and exudes an inner tranquility.
But is the A5 Cabrio 2.7 TDI actually a quiet car?

The 2.7 TDI provides an output of 190 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm between 1400 and 3250 rpm release.The couple has really been present at low rpm, our test car was equipped with the eight-stage Tiptronic gear unit and noticed that the high speed V6 rarely had to do, even when accelerating. Really fast is the A5 Cabrio with the 2.7 TDI is not, the car sprint in 8.6 seconds to 100 km / h. The A5 Cabrio is not explicitly designed for sporty driving, because he can enjoy a stroll as the best. Consumption continues through this quiet V6 engine is very acceptable, our test was to use 7.2 liters per 100 kilometer. Audi gives himself an average consumption of 6.5 liters in, the CO2 emissions to 169 grams per kilometer remains under control.

The 2.7 TDI fits perfectly into our eyes to the A5 Cabrio, at no time did we feel something borrowing. The V6 engine does the job with ease while speaking the same four-cylinder with a rather loud would happen. The eight-stage Tiptronic fit the A5 Cabrio and cast, the continuously variable transmission provides a very high comfort which can switch seamlessly between moments follow. By default, the Multitronic very early in order to achieve a low consumption, which would put the sportier S-poker in the state where the next one hoogtoerigere Tiptronic gear also provides for a quicker throttle response. Do you decide when it can be switched by the switching paddles behind the steering wheel which is very easy to operate. We were however to the default mode, because the A5 Cabrio will not necessarily speed you on your destination.

That the Audi A5 Cabrio 2.7 TDI and the good fit we see also the general handling of the A5 Cabrio, the damping is very well balanced and clearly puts the emphasis on comfort. Pits and bumps are easily filtered but that does not mean that the A5 Cabrio spacey happens. On a windy trail you can see A5 Cabrio submitting very tight and the body is also stiff enough to the rolling movement tending to catch. The comfortable handling is assisted by the electrically adjustable sport seats that both the lower back, upper legs and very good support. Indispensable is also the seat heater that makes you even in freezing weather tend to have the roof in the trunk to pop. This fully automatic fabric roof also opens himself to it in 15 seconds and a speed of 50 km / h. Our test model was also equipped with an optional (363 euro) hood with improved acoustic insulation, it may seem strange but closed the A5 Cabrio hood was in our quieter than the average modern sedan. Really impressive, and it helps to comfort the rich body of A5 Cabrio.

The interior of the A5 Cabrio is very solid and the positioning of the controls is very logical. The brown leather sport seats fit well with the black dashboard and optional pictures of brown walnut inlay (EUR 471.90) provide additional refinement. The MMI system, Audi's multimedia system, is sunk in the center console so you have little affected by the incident light. The system is operated with a handy dial by the shifter and comprises a very good GPS with 3D maps, radio, CD and the ability to read SD cards. With the hood closed, the rear sight to the large C-pillars is very limited, fortunately our test model has rear parking sensors, an option we highly recommend it.

The A5 Cabrio has room for four people, two people back can easily take place. The legroom is ample and back course not you catch more wind than the front. With the roof up the main room again very limited, tall people will therefore not stand hours. The A5 Cabrio features with the soft top on 320 liter luggage, is a lot for a Cabrio. The back seat is also in two parts can be folded down so a 750 liter luggage may arise.

Of course all this beauty is on the A5 Cabrio also a price, the starting price of 40,975 euros for the 2.0 TFSI (180 hp) may be somewhat difficult, once you view the list of options you can effortlessly 10,000 check on necessary options. Our test model has a base price of 46,475 euros but the rich makes it 58,191 euros of equipment. At our option list we found include the electrically adjustable sports seats (1,197 euros), the Pack Intenso Plus "(3500 euros) which includes metallic, acoustic parking, cruise control and HMI system includes the" Lounge "Pack (2,100 euros) that the heated seats, leather interior, electric folding mirrors, leather multifunction steering wheel and the inside with a day / night function and the additional 550 euros nekverwarming which you aftikt. The A5 Cabrio is most expensive, especially if you take the option list there, but you'll get a lot of cars in its place.

Audi A5 Cabrio has the meantime also a wide range of engines. Start, with a 2.0 TDI (163/170 hp) or 2.0 TFSI (180 hp), diesel country Belgium is also the 3.0 TDI with 240 hp. The fastest petrol, the 3.0 TFSI with a capacity of 333 hp and develops its way into the S5 Cabrio has found. There is also a non-turbo petrol engine found in the range, the 3.2 FSI provides 265 hp. The powerful engines are standard with or without S-Tronic seven-speed automatic delivered.

With the Audi A5 Cabrio is undoubtedly the most beautiful country in convertible car in its ranks, the successor of the A4 Cabrio is tuned for ride comfort and has a very well balanced shock absorption. The 2.7 TDI Multitronic fits perfectly with the comfortable features of the A5 Cabrio and thanks to its high torque of the everyday traffic very enjoyable. Inside we find a very well finished interior that really true to its full extent if you come across a bunch of options from the expensive option list checked. Just which option makes the list A5 Cabrio expensive, but one of the most stylish cars from the moment you may have something deeper in the unfilled.
