Audi released an upgraded version of its stunningly beautiful A5 Coupe’ in August this year, combining the elegance that the A5 Coupe’ has become renowned for with the new design language.
The mild hybrid 45 TFSI quattro produces 183kW of power with peak torque of 370Nm and can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 5.8 seconds (Coupé), top speed of 250kmh and sips fuel at around 7.1l/100k.
But the A5 Coupe’ is more than sporty performance, it’s about the entire ambience of the experience. Its looks beautiful, is exceptionally comfortable inside, simply glides along with superb dynamics and exudes elegance.
Inside it comes with Audis latest technology and infotainment connectivity with virtual cockpit, apple car play, 10.1-inch high-resolution MMI haptic touch display, wireless phone charging tray and electric front seats with 4 way lumbar support.
Priced at just under $80,000 plus the usual costs it is actually well priced.
