Audi A5 Cabriolet 2017
The Audi A5 was created to fill the void between the A4 and A6 models but instead it unveiled an incredibly diverse and innovative model that can provide for an expansive range of drivers. The A5 is now available in three different body styles and transmission selections alongside six different engines. You have a choice between the two-door coupe, the drop-top cabriolet and the four-door sportback.
Driver’s can also enjoy spreading out into a variety of personalities as well. Perhaps you’re sport-focused and thrive off of the purring supercharged 3.0 Litre V6 engine of the high-performance S5. Or maybe you enjoy a breezier cruise in the 2.0 TDI model coupe that’s pushing 4.7 Litres per 100km selling for $68,000 rather than the $135,900 of its sportier cousin.
In 2012 Audi decided that they could keep up with the fast-changing standards for better consumption rates without losing integrity in performance, or at least gives the driver the option. For example, an innovative efficiency system in lower spec cars allowed the driver to change modes in order to dull the throttle input while the electro-mechanical steering offers gains of 3.0 Litres per 100km in consumption. With both the A5 and S5, over two-thirds of all buyers tend to go for the diesel option, but the choice is there. If you’re buying or selling an Audi A5 it’s good to be in the know about this wide-ranging car.
