Audi A5 Cabriolet Models and A5 Cabriolet History
Two years after Audi introduced the A5 Coupe, a drop-top version of the personal luxury car. The Audi A5 Cabriolet arrived in 2010 providing a second row seating alternative to the German brand's only other convertible, the TT roadster. Utilizing a fast-operating, automatically-actuated soft top, the Audi A5 Cabriolet's premium riding experience is maintained by refined amenities found within the four-passenger cabin. The Cabriolet's debut was also the first year for a new turbocharged engine incorporated with the A5 lineup. Exclusively powering the 2010 Audi A5 Cabriolet, a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine generated 211 horsepower. The four-cylinder powerplant combined with standard front-wheel drive provided a lower price point for buyers of the 2010 A5 Cabriolet. The surefootedness and performance of quattro all-wheel drive were optional. For 2013, the Audi A5 Cabriolet received a noticeable styling refresh to the front and rear portions of the bodywork. Another change for the 2013 model year was the option of a continuously variable transmission for the front-wheel drive version. Receiving several minor upgrades year-to-year from 2014 to 2017, a complete redesign of the Audi A5 lineup for 2018 includes an all-new A5 Cabriolet. Bolder outer appearance, enhanced interior and an upgraded 2.0-liter TFSI engine producing 252 horsepower are highlights of the 2018 Audi A5 Cabriolet.
