The four-seat Audi A5 Cabriolet range features a folding fabric top roof, with a choice of seven engines and a wide range of high-end options.

The top-of-the-line S5 model also gains a convertible variant, boasting a newly developed, supercharged 3.0-litre V6 engine with direct injection.

Like all open-top Audi's, the A5 uses a classic fabric top which opens in just 15 seconds - and closes in 17 seconds.

The fully automatic open/close system is standard on all A5 Convertibles, although an acoustic top is optionally available which reduces wind noise and is comparable to a hardtop roof.

A clever folding design means that even when the roof is down very little boot space is lost - maintaining 320 litres of usable storage space.

The A5 Cabriolet is being launched with three petrol engines and two diesel engines, with power outputs ranging from 132 kW to 195 kW - all featuring direct injection technology.

High-powered models also benefit from Audi quattro all-wheel drive with an optional sports differential which distributes power between the rear wheels.

A choice of three transmissions is also on offer: a six-speed manual transmission, the continuously variable multitronic, and the seven-speed S tronic.
