Audi’s Next Generation A5/S5

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJune 3rd, 2016


The second generation A5/S5 has been long awaited by the public. And in Audi fashion, they unveiled the vehicle on their own timeline at their headquarters in Ingolstadt. The automaker wanted to bring in the history of the coupe with the Audi brand and decided to invite a collection of Audi coupes to the event.

To some, the new A5 coupe might look like a refreshed first generation rather than a new vehicle, but that would of course be incorrect. Audi had great success with this particular body style and wanted to stay true to the original body styling yet bring about a new vehicle for customer’s enjoyment.

The A5 will be offered with a variety of different engine options in Germany, but we’ll likely only get a sampling of that in Canada. But for your amusement, the A5 will have the option of two gasoline and three diesel engines ranging from 190hp up to 286hp. The S5 will get the top trim 3.0L V6 turbocharged engine which pumps out 354hp and 369lb/ft of torque.
