Audi Launched Second Generation A5 And S5 Coupes
|   Saturday, June 25, 2016
After last year the new generation Audi A4 launched, the best-selling sedan in the portfolio of the brand, Audi raises the stakes with the new Audi A5 and its S5 sports version, which will appear in showrooms the second half of this year. Officially disclosed during a special event held at Ingolstadt, the town where the Audi has its main production base, the German model proposes to attack the segment of medium coupe in which BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C Class Coupe are the main direct rivals.


The first important news is that Audi seems to have renounced the Matryoshka logic for the models in its own range.That is because the new A5 offers a front design clearly different from that of the A4, even if the similarities at a broad outline level are present, considering that the two models are part of the same segment, but offer basically different bodywork types. Furthermore, both models are built on the same MLB2 platform of the Volkswagen Group, therefore they share the same basic production.
On the outside, we have a long bonnet, short overhangs, a thoroughbred coupe profile plunged toward the rear, LED Matrix headlights and new LED tail lights that are the main attractions from an aesthetic point of view for the new A5.

This model, between generations, has 60 kilograms less weight and improved aerodynamic behavior, giving it a coefficient Cx of 0.25, the best in this segment. BMW 4 Series provides 0.28 Cx, while Mercedes C-Class Coupe comes with a 0.26 Cx.
The interior is already receiving the popular Virtual Cockpit, the giant display which replaces the classic board clocks, which appeared for the first time in the Audi range two years ago on the new TT generation.

The display in front of the driver is doubled by a central one which accommodates the MultiMedia Interface system (MMI) in a dashboard, on which horizontal lines dominate.

Audi A5 offers air conditioning on three areas, automatically retractable safety belts supports, heated steering wheel, massage chairs, a 3D audio system and a panoramic roof, which will probably be included in the list of rich options that will be available to future customers.
Audi will offer for its customers a list of five engines on the A5: two TFSI turbo petrol and three TDI turbo-diesel units.

These make between 190 and 286 horsepower, and can be coupled with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an automatic gearbox with seven reports. According to Audi, the new A5 engines are 17 percent more powerful and 22 percent more efficient than the previous generation.
The same performant transmission is found on the S5 sports version too. This version features a V6 TFSI engine with a displacement of 3.0 liters. The maximum power developed by this engine now reaches 354 horsepower, an extra 21 horsepower on top of the previous generation.

The S5 is equipped with quattro permanent all-wheel drive as standard and needs 4.7 seconds for 0 to 100 km / h and a top speed of 250 km / h, electronically limited. According to Audi the data sheet the engine can consume in a mixed average regime 7.3 liters / 100 km.
