- shares

Pricing and specifications have been announced for the refreshed 2021 Audi A5 range, encompassing three body styles – coupe, liftback five-door sportback and cabriolet – across its six variant range.

Audi’s seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch auto is standard across the range, along with Audi’s 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, albeit with different tunes.

Standard features across the the A5 line-up include Audi’s new 10.1-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB+ digital radio, wireless phone charging, a 10-speaker sound system, Audi’s virtual cockpit driver display, and a 360-degree camera.

Other standard highlights include leather upholstery, sports seats with electric adjustment for driver and front passenger, tri-zone climate control, and keyless entry and start.

A comprehensive suite of safety technology comes standard across the range: adaptive cruise control with stop&go function, active lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, driver attention assist, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, exit warning, collision avoidance assist, and rain-sensing wipers.

Sportback variants have a suite of eight airbags, the Coupe six, and the Cabriolet four. There is no airbag protection for rear seat occupants in the Cabriolet.

All A5 models ride on 19-inch alloy wheels as standard.

The range kicks off with the A5 Coupe 40 TFSI S Line and the A5 Sportback 40 TFSI S Line, both priced at $71,900 plus on road costs. Both are powered by a 2.0-litre petrol four, making 140kW and 320Nm. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

Those wanting the surety of all-wheel drive will need to step into the A5 Coupe 45 TFSI Quattro S Line and A5 Sportback 45 TFSI Quattro S Line, both sharing a sticker price of $79,900 plus on-road costs.

Powering both variants is a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo petrol with outputs of 183kW and 370Nm. Those numbers are sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

The Cabriolet range starts with the $85,400 A5 Cabriolet 40 TFSI S Line. Like its hardtop siblings, it’s powered by Audi’s 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with outputs of 140kW and 320Nm. Similarly, power is sent to the front wheels exclusively through Audi’s seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

The range-topper is the A5 Cabriolet 45 TFSI Quattro S Line at $93,400. Its 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo petrol engine makes 183kW and 370Nm, with those outputs sent to all four wheels by a seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

Features exclusive to the Cabriolet include neck warmers for the front seats, heated front seats (they’re optional on the hardtop range), and seatbelt-mounted microphones to ensure clarity of telephony while driving with the roof down.

The roof opens in 15 seconds and closes in 18 seconds at speeds up to 50km/h.

Options for the range include the Premium Plus pack that adds a premium Bang&Olufsen sound system, head-up display, sunroof, privacy glass, and Audi Matrix LED headlights with laser light.

There’s also the S Line sport package which brings with it premium Nappa leather upholstery, brushed aluminium inlays, stainless steel pedals, a flat-bottomed S Line steering wheel, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The entire range is on sale now, with the more powerful S5 variants due later in the year. Pricing for the flagship RS5 was announced in July.
