Audi Australia’s Managing Director, Joerg Hofmann, says the new A5 heralds a clear step forward for the brand in terms of desirability.
“This new Coupe is a stunning vehicle and we believe it is the best in its class. With competitive pricing, advanced engine technology and elegant design, the A5 will surely turn the heads of the luxury car-buying public,”
The A5 coupe will debut with a 3.2-litre V6 engine with a seven-speed continuously variable transmission offering a maximum of 195kW at 6500rpm and 330Nm across 3000 to 5000rpm - accelerating the two-door sports coupe from zero to 100km/h in just 6.6 seconds.
The remainder of the A5 Coupe range, which will be available by August 2008 is powered by powerful and economical FSI, TFSI and TDI engines, which are both highly efficient and eco-friendly. Diesel models already comply with the strict EU5 emission standard.
For the first time, the A5 and S5 coupe models which feature a brand new key which stores important information, such as the car’s current mileage or warning messages from the Audi A5’s driver information system as soon as it is inserted into the cockpit.
The A5 3.2 FSI multitronic is now available with a price tag of $91,900 with the quattro tiptronic transmission arriving in April 2008.
The flagship S5 4.2 FSI quattro tiptronic will make its debut alongside the A5 1.8T FSI during May 2008 with the A5 3.0 TDI diesel model being the last to land on our shores in August.
