Audi launches their new A4 and A5 models


The latest Audi A4 and A5 passenger vehicles have been announced for our market. Audi is still strongly committed to their sedans and derivatives even though nearly 67% of their sales so far this year are SUVs.

The A4 includes sedan and station wagon variants and there is an All-Road station wagon made to cope with reasonable dirt road experiences.

The A5, a sleeker fastback style of car comes in either a four door Sportsback, a coupe or a convertible.

Most variants have a four-cylinder petrol engine but the All road has an extra diesel engine option.

A4s are priced from about $60,000 to $70,000.

The A5 Sportsback and coupe cost $72,000. The cabriolet is an extra $13,500. On road costs are extra.

The infotainment system has ten times the computing power but some features such as adaptive cruise control and lane assist are only options.
