2020 Audi A5 Coupe, Cabriolet, and Sportback at Audi Ann Arbor


About the Audi A5 Coupe, Cabriolet, and Sportback

Drivers will have their choice of three distinct personalities in the Audi A5 lineup -- Coupe, Cabriolet, and Sportback. All three are powered by a potent yet efficient 2.0-liter TFSI® direct-injection DOHC four-cylinder engine which produces 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a sophisticated seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive, these impressive models deliver inspired performance.

Featuring quintessential coupe styling, A5 Coupe models are designed with a dynamic S line® exterior featuring pronounced fender badges, side sills, and bumpers. Sophisticated and sporty, this is an A5 that's difficult for others to keep up with.

Searching for top-down exhilaration and luxurious refinement? The Audi A5 Cabriolet features sleek design lines that can't help but bring attention to themselves. Its acoustic folding roof helps absorb unwanted noise and can even be raised at speeds of up to 31 MPH.

Taking the concept of a coupe further by extending the sloping roofline and stretching the wheelbase, the A5 Sportback combines practicality with style. Advanced quattro® all-wheel drive technology has a variable torque split that can intuitively send power to where it's needed, giving you additional confidence across all types of road conditions.
