Audi refreshes the A5 range

Audi has freshened its A5 range up, slightly. The most notable external changes are to the car’s lights, while the grille and front bumper have also been tweaked, with the latter featuring featuring revised air inlets with flat fog lights, all adding to a new, more aggressive look. 17-inch alloys wheels come as standard, but other designs are available at a size up to 20-inch.

Inside, there’s a new steering wheel – along with electromechanical power steering (new to the A5 family), control stalks and revised MMI system, while new trim options include Aluminium Trigon, walnut and natural fine grain ash. An almost completely new range of upholstery colours will be offered. A5 Sportback customers will also be offered the car in five-seater form.

The A5’s engine range begins with a revised 168 bhp 1.8L TFSI petrol unit, which is not only 10 bhp up on its predecessor, but also 11% more efficient. Further up the food chain is a 211 bhp 2.0L TFSI, a supercharged 268bhp 3.0L TFSI V6. Diesel fans have the choice of a 175 bhp 2.0L TDI or a 3.0L TDI producing either 201 bhp or 242 bhp.

Owners wanting a more raucous machine can opt for the S5. Now powered by a 333 bhp 3.0 TFSI, the S5 consumes 20% less fuel than its outgoing 4.2L V8 counterpart, and in coupé form accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically governed to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Engine start/stop is standard on all models.
