Audi A5 Coupe Models and A5 Coupe History
Audi created the A5 Coupe for their motoring audience who wanted the intimate confides of a two-door like the Audi TT blended with more robust luxury found with sedans. Based on the same platform what would be used for the A6 and A8 sedans, the Audi A5 Coupe arrived for the 2008 model year. A debonair two-door, the A5 Coupe first year exclusively paired a 265-horsepower 3.2-liter V-6 engine with quattro all-wheel drive. It would not be until the 2010 model year the Audi A5 Coupe would be first available with a front-wheel drive option. That introduction of front-wheel drive came with the introduction of a turbocharged FSI four-cylinder engine that would replace the six-cylinder engine starting in 2011. A substantial exterior and interior styling refresh was performed to the A5 Coupe for 2013. For 2018, the Audi A5 Coupe has been completely reshaped and re-engineered as a bolder personal luxury car. An enhanced front end exhibiting a wider, flatter Singleframe grille emphasized by a lower hood, the 2018 A5 Coupe boasts upgraded base horsepower and high-end interior features like three-zone automatic climate control and panoramic sunroof as standard.
