SPORTY ELEGANCE – THE NEW AUDI A5 AND S5 COUPE

◾World premiere: New design highlight from Ingolstadt
◾Powerful six-cylinder engines for more driving pleasure and efficiency
◾High tech interior wîth Audi virtual cockpit and Audi connect

Audi revolutionized its mid-size class in 2007 wîth the A5. The Ingolstadt-based carmaker created a work of art that took fans around the world by storm. Nine years later marks the launch of the second generation – wîth a new, honed look and high tech everywhere. The new generation of the A5 Coupe is athletic, sporty and elegant. Its design goes hand in hand wîth sophisticated aerodynamics. Únder the skin the A5 impresses wîth an all-new chassis, powerful engines, and innovative infotainment features and driver assistance systems.

How do you make a design masterpiece even more beautiful? Audi designers have been pondering this question for years. The results are impressive: The new Audi A5 Coupe sports a fresh, modern and honed look. It is nevertheless true to its DNA wîth the sporty and elegant character being passed down to the new version. The best example is the now three-dimensional wave-shaped shoulder line that already characterized the previous model. The precisely sweeping line wîth pronounced bulges over the wheel arches emphasizes all four wheels – a cue to the quattro all-wheel drive.

The perfectly balanced proportions wîth a long engine hood, the stretched wheelbase and short overhangs underscore the sportiness of the new A5 Coupe. The sculpted Singleframe grille is significantly flatter and wider than in the previous model. The LED rear lights and optional LED or Matrix LED headlights wîth dynamic turn signals make high-end technology visible even after dark.

Engines
The new Audi A5 Coupe will launch in Germany wîth five engines: two TFSI and three TDI units. Their power output has increased considerably and is now between 140 kW (190 hp) and 210 kW (286 hp). Compared wîth the previous model, they offer up to 17 percent more performance while consuming as much as 22 percent less fuel. (concept carz) All the engines combine high efficiency wîth sporty power development and smooth running – especially the two 3.0 TDI six-cylinder engines.

With its newly developed 3.0 TFSI, the Audi S5 Coupe is now in a league of its own. The turbo V6 exhibits highly efficient, sports car-like performance. From its 2,995 cc of displacement, the boosted six-cylinder engine produces 260 kW (354 hp) of power, which is 15 kW (21 hp) more than the engine in the previous model.

Drivetrain
The new Audi A5 Coupe comes wîth a drivetrain solution tailor-made for each engine variant. The manual six-speed gearbox and the seven-speed S tronic are used wîth the four-cylinder engines as well as the 160 kW (218 hp) 3.0 TDI wîth front- or all-wheel drive. The eight-speed tiptronic is reserved for the top diesel wîth 210 kW (286 hp) and the S5 engine. Both engines come standard wîth quattro all-wheel drive. Audi also offers the optional rear-axle sport differential for even more dynamic driving and precision.

The new quattro wîth ultra technology is also available for the first time. At the moment it can be combined wîth the four-cylinder TFSI and TDI engines wîth manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) Optimized for efficiency, the drive system does not exhibit any perceptible differences to permanent systems in terms of traction and driving dynamics.

Chassis
The all-new chassis is among the strengths of the Audi A5 Coupe. It offers the driver optimal comfort combined wîth a high degree of agility. The A5 thus handles narrow, winding mountain roads and long trips on the Autobahn wîth equal aplomb. Audi offers a suspension wîth damper control as an option. This is integrated into the dynamic handling system known as Audi drive select, which enables the driver to modify the basic characteristic in multiple steps.

The electromechanical power §teering is also a new development from Audi. It adapts according to the vehicle's current speed and provides highly precise road feedback. Optionally available is the dynamic §teering, which varies its gear ratio depending on the speed and §teering angle.

Body
The Audi A5 Coupe is significantly more efficient than its predecessor. This is due in large part to a reduction in weight as well as sophisticated aerodynamics. The engineers were able to trim the curb weight by as much as 60 kilograms (132.3 lb). The body is the lightest in the competitive field thanks to an intelligent mix of materials and lightweight design. With a drag coefficient of 0.25, the A5 Coupe is also the §egmènt leader wîth respect to aerodynamics.

Interior
The interior benefits from the increased dimensions and longer wheelbase. Space for driver and passengers is more generous. The horizontal architecture of the instrument panel and the continuous air vent strip create a wide sense of space.

As is typical for Audi, interior build quality is uncompromisingly high. High-quality materials in a wide range of colors provide for a particularly pleasant ambiance and underscore the premium character of the mid-sized model. Optional ambient lighting highlights the interior wîth a choice of 30 adjustable shades. The new A5 Coupe also redefines the class benchmark for aeroacoustics. The acoustic comfort is almost that of a luxury class model.

The luggage compartment offers a volume of 465 liters (16.4 cu ft), 10 liters
(0.4 cu ft) more than wîth the previous model. The rear seat has a 40:20:40 split and can be easily folded forward using levers in the luggage compartment. Audi also offers the two-door coupé wîth optional gesture control for opening the luggage compartment lid via a foot motion. The optional trailer hitch is electrically released at the press of a button.

Display and controls
The A5 Coupe is now available for the first time wîth the optional Audi virtual cockpit, a 12.3-inch TFT display wîth a resolution of 1,440 x 540 pixels. Together wîth the MMI navigation plus including 8.3-inch monitor on the center console, it forms the central information unit. The focal point of the MMI terminal is the round rotary pushbutton. Its surface is home to the touch-sensitive touchpad. The touchpad is used to input characters and also for multifinger gestures, enabling the driver to zoom in on the map, for example. The whole MMI control logic is similar to that of a smartphone, including the intelligent free text search function. The new, more natural voice control system can recognize input made using everyday language, such as: 'I would like to call Peter.'

Infotainment and Audi connect
Customers choosing MMI navigation plus automatically also get the hardware module Audi connect and the new Audi connect SIM, a SIM card permanently installed in the car. The new Audi A5 Coupe uses this to connect to the Internet via the ultrafast LTE network. Úse of the versatile Audi connect services is free of charge of three years, both in Germany and in most European countries. The respective national provider is selected automatically as needed.

Independent of the integrated Audi connect services, customers can also purchase optional data packages for individual Internet use using the Wi-Fi hotspot. This allows all passengers to surf the Web and send/receive email wîth up to eight mobile devices at attractive rates.

The A5 can also be equipped wîth the optional Audi connect safety & service package. This includes such functions as an automatic emergency call in the event of an accident, online roadside assistance and Audi service request as well as remote functions that can be used wîth the MMI connect app on a smartphone, smartwatch or – in conjunction wîth the fourth generation Apple TV – from a television.
Examples include locking and unlocking the car, checking where the car is parked and calling up the vehicle status.

With the Audi smartphone interface, Apple Car Play and Android Auto bring the familiar smartphone environment to the car, if desired. The optional Audi phone box wîth wireless charging in the center armrest uses near-field coupling to link smartphones wirelessly to the vehicle's antenna and enables inductive charging according to the Qi standard. For very discerning hi-fi fans, the Bang & Olufsen sound system wîth its innovative 3D sound is available as an option.

Driver assistance systems

An intelligent combination of different technologies enhances the safety, comfort and efficiency of the new Audi A5 Coupe. At the same time, Audi is also taking the next step toward piloted driving. The broad choice of innovative driver assistance systems sets standards in the §egmènt. Compared wîth the previous model, nearly all of the systems are either completely new or have been extensively updated.

The predictive efficiency assistant helps the driver save fuel, Audi active lane assist helps keep the car on track in the driving lane, and the Stop&Go adaptive cruise control including traffic jam assist offers the driver relief in slow-moving traffic. New and important safety features include the park assist, cross traffic assist rear, exit warning, collision avoidance assist and turn assist as well as the Audi pre sense systems. Camera-based recognition of traffic signs rounds out the lineup.

The new Audi A5 Coupe will launch in Germany and additional European countries in fall 2016. Compared wîth the previous model, the list of standard equipment is even more generous. Among the features included are xenon headlights wîth LED daytime running lights and LED rear lights, LED interior lights, the Audi MMI radio plus wîth 7-inch MMI color display, Bluetooth and ÚSB charging function, the three- spoke multifunction §teering wheel (including shift paddles in models wîth automatic transmission), height-adjustable belt feeds, the Audi drive select dynamic handling system and Audi pre sense city.

New trim lines provide numerous customization opportunities, for both the interior and the exterior. Besides the base model, there are also the sport and design lines. The S line sport package and the Audi design selection are available for sophisticated customization, particularly for the interior. Audi offers the S line exterior package for a particularly dynamic appearance.

The Audi S5 Coupe
From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.7 seconds. The new Audi S5 Coupe combines dramatic elegance wîth the performance of a sports car. Its newly developed, turbocharged V6 engine produces 260 kW (354 hp) and consumes just 7.3 liters of fuel per 100 km (32.2 ÚS mpg). The sharper S exterior design and the S-specific details in the interior underscore the dynamic character of the Audi two-door sports coupe.
