A facelifted Audi A5 range has been revealed, with the family of coupé, cabriolet and liftback models receiving some minor styling tweaks and more equipment. The updated models will make their public debuts at this week’s Frankfurt motor show.
Bringing the car in line with the rest of the German firm’s range, the Audi A5 range receives a restyled front bumper, which now plays host to a wider and flatter grille — with three air vents sitting atop. Audi says it delivers ‘considerably more visual impact’ than the outgoing car.
Adding to this new-look front end is the standard inclusion of LED headlights across the A5 line-up.
Inside the car, a large ten-inch infotainment screen will now come as standard in the UK — bringing a newly-introduced traffic light information function to the car. Also coming at no extra cost is Audi’s ‘virtual cockpit’ system, which replaces traditional dials and gauges in front of the driver with a 12-inch digital display.
A variety of petrol and diesel models will be available for the Audi A5 — each utilising mild-hybrid technology – ranging from 165hp in output, to 347hp in its most potent S5 form.
Rounding out the changes to the A5 range is a more performance-oriented suspension setup within the selectable drive modes function, which also comes as standard on UK models.
There are no changes to the Audi A5’s safety rating, with the A5 Coupé and A5 Sportback awarded five stars from Euro NCAP when they were first launched. This rating does not apply to the A5 Cabriolet, which is structurally different on account of its lack of a roof.
Pricing and full specifications for the new Audi A5 range have yet to be revealed, though order books are set to open later this year. First deliveries of the car – available in coupé, convertible and five-door liftback (A5 Sportback) form — are expected in spring 2020.
