Audi’s stylish new A5 Coupe has arrived in Australia with a 3.2 FSI engine to kick start the range.
The A5 extends the Audi range as a new model line, taking up the tradition of classic two-door sports and touring coupés. Expertly styled with a powerful presence, it uses elements of Audi’s progressive design language, creating a new coupé that makes a clear design statement of sportiness and elegance. The A5 also offers a great dynamic driving experience and excellent long-distance comfort.
Priced at $91,900, the A5 3.2 FSI multitronic with sport program (7-speed continuously variable transmission) is the first A5 model to arrive, with additional engine variants to follow in 2008.
All engines have high efficiency and eco-friendly characteristics in common and the diesel units already comply with the EU5 standard which will apply in future and, thanks to a range of technical innovations, their fuel consumption and CO2 values are impressively low.
The first-to-arrive, smooth and powerful 3.2 V6 engine offers a maximum of 195kW at 6,500rpm and 330Nm of torque from 3,000 – 5,000rpm. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.6 seconds.
Audi Australia’s Managing Director, Mr Joerg Hofmann, says the new A5 heralds a clear step forward for the brand in terms of desirability.
“This new Coupe is a stunning vehicle and we believe it is the best in its class. With competitive pricing, advanced engine technology and elegant design, the A5 will surely turn the heads of the luxury car-buying public,” Mr Hofmann said.
“Audi is a brand on the move in Australia and this new model will help propel us towards yet another period of record sales growth.”
