This latest A5 variant is powered by the same 3.2-litre V6 engine offering maximum power of 195kW at 6,500rpm and 330Nm of torque from 3,000 – 5,000rpm.
Combined with the new 6-speed tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive, 0 to 100 km/h takes just 6.4 seconds with fuel consumption an impressive 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined cycle.
“Audi continues to be a brand on the move in Australia and this new quattro model will help propel us towards yet another period of record sales growth.”
The A5 quattro model is the second to arrive in Australia, with additional engine variants, the 3.0 TDI and 1.8T FSI, to follow over the next twelve months.
Also on its way this month is the potent Audi S5 4.2 FSI quattro tiptronic variant - completing the S5 range.
The new S5 4.2 FSI quattro tiptronic variant is priced at $131,900 and matches the S5 4.2 6-speed manual variant on both price and standard specification.
