The distinguished Audi A5 Cabriolet design aesthetic continues throughout the cabin of the vehicle, combining comfort and sophistication to create an exhilarating environment for drivers and passengers alike.
252-hp turbocharged engine with 273 lb-ft of torque. Audi drive select driving modes. Shift-by-wire gear selection. Every Audi A5 is designed to deliver an elevated feeling of control, be it in traffic or on your favorite back road.
Audi has done an amazing job refining the A5 for its second generation. The updated corporate grille is now proudly displayed, giving the A5 a far more modern touch. The LED headlights and daytime running lights are equally vogue. Nice details like the creased hood lines and sweeping character line over the fenders makes the car look hewn from a solid chunk of aluminum.
Adding to the upscale appearance are the optional 19-inch Design Line wheels on my tester. They replace 18-inch, 10-spoke, turbine style wheels that are far less interesting. The two-tone 19s contrast nicely with the Florette Silver Metallic paint and black soft top. With the top stowed, the Nougat Brown interior continues the premium aesthetics. The more angular design for 2018 continues around back, where the taillights now have a more purposeful shape, leaving behind the somewhat soft and rounded look of the previous version. Twin, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes match the chrome badging on the trunk and trim work that wraps around the lower edge of the bumper. Audi is rather conservative with chrome on this cabriolet. Aside from that out back, there is some satin chrome on the windshield hoop and bright chrome on the grille and along the base of the side windows.
