    Commenting at the launch, Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India said, "2017 is the year for ‘Audi Reloaded’ and the A5 range stands for the beginning of a new era. We will continue to offer the best of luxury mobility solutions in India by introducing new models in exciting body types and by entering into new segments. With the launch of the #A5BratPack – Audi A5 Sportback, Audi A5 Cabriolet and new Audi S5 Sportback, we are proud to announce that we have already achieved our target of launching 10 products in 2017 in India.  The introduction of the Audi A5 range has further strengthened our product portfolio. The new Audi A5 range will be primarily targeting the young minded population that is instantly recognizable, the ones who have always taken on stardom and success on their terms. It packs in the design, sportiness and prestige of the Audi brand and appeals to the inner brat in us who is waiting to latch onto the excitement. The Audi A5 range will definitely catch the attention of the young minded achievers who have made a statement with their uncompromised way of thinking.”

     

    Under the hood, the newly launched the A5 Sportback and Cabriolet come powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine which generates maximum power of 190bhp and peak torque of 400Nm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as standard. The A5 Sportback is a front-wheel-drive vehicle, while the cabriolet gets Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Talking about the Audi S5 the power to the vehicle comes from a 3.0L 6-cylinder turbocharged engine which develops maximum power of 354bhp and highest torque of 500Nm and is paired with an 8-speed tiptronic automatic transmission, sending power to all the four wheels. This high-performance variant as well as the A5 Cabriolet reaches the sprint of 0-100kmph in just 4.7 seconds while Audi S5 Sportback can sprint to 100kph in a rapid 4.7 seconds. Engine Start/Stop system comes as standard feature across the entire Audi A5 range.

     

    Sourced from the A4 sedan, Audi A5 Sportback is the four-door sedan variant, while the A5 Cabriolet is the soft-top convertible variant, followed by the high-performance S5 variant. The A5 range offers features such as boasts of a new 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel, black wood-trim in the cabin, MMI Touch infotainment system, Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, Audi’s smartphone integration suite with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 755W Bang and Olufsen sound system, and panoramic electric sunroof.

    While Audi A5 would take against the likes of Jaguar XF, Volvo S60 and Mercedes C-Class, the soft-top variant A5 Cabriolet would take up against the likes of Mercedes-Benz C 300 Cabriolet. The S5 Sportback would rival the Volvo S60 Polestar, Ford Mustang and Mercedes-AMG C 43 Coupe in the country.
