Audi A5

There are few cars in the world that make you feel like a kid again, allowing you to let loose, rid yourself of daily responsibilities, and let your hair blow in the wind. With a sporty feel and exciting handling, the Audi A5 is one of the best little luxury compact cars on the market today. Pair all of that with the high-tech integration, and you have yourself a package that is not to be reckoned with.

The Initial Release of the Audi A5

The Audi A5 was the perfect way for Audi to return to making their compact executive coupes. It was meant to fill a void that had been present since the Audi 80 coupe was cut from production back in 1996. In 2006, Audi made a statement that the A5 would go into production. Audi decided that they wanted to add a coupe, Sportback, and cabriolet to the line. It was in 2007 that the car made its first appearance at the Melbourne International Motor Show. 

Performance and Technology of an Automotive Athlete – The Audi A5

The 2019 Audi A5 sports a 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged engine that puts out 252 horsepower. It has a sleek, two-door look that feels quick and comes alive when the roads get a bit curvy. Much of this quickness is thanks to the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

The cabin in the A5 is surprisingly spacious and obviously stylish. There are an array of infotainment features, including Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen system. There are a variety of standard safety features as well, including standard automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and standard forward-collision warning. 

Two Generations of the Audi A5

  • First Generation of the Audi A5 (2007-2016)

The first-generation Audi A5 came out to compete with the BMW 3-Series using a 3.2L FSI V-6 engine and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system. By 2011, the headlights and taillights were completely redesigned with Xenon plus technology. Driver assistance features were also upgraded to fit modern specs. 

  • Second Generation of the Audi A5 (2017-Present)

By 2017, the Audi A5 became much sharper, including a redesigned single-frame grille, new bumpers, new side vents, and new rims. The rear suspension was also changed to five-link suspension. 

The Audi A5 In the News

In recent and unfortunate Audi news, 144,000 Audi cars were recalled for airbag detection problems. These cars include the 2017-2018 Audi S4 and A4, and the 2018 Audi A5 and S5.
