The Audi A5 has undergone significant changes, according to recent images captured by SEMA News sources.
The traditional sedan design is gone, replaced by a sportier, curved roofline and a tailgate reminiscent of the current A5 Sportback. The new model also features enlarged radiator grilles with varying honeycomb structures based on the equipment line, and a LED light stripe spanning the entire rear width.
The interior design is a complete overhaul, according to insiders, drawing inspiration from the electric Q6 e-tron. The similarities mean the A5 will likely have a streamlined control and infotainment system centered around a touchscreen, compact digital instruments and a heads-up display. Intelligent voice control, backed by artificial intelligence, recognizes individual preferences, adapting displayed information to habits and driving situations, ultimately aiming to minimize distractions.
Powering the new Audi A5 are the 2.0 TSFI and 2.0 TDI engines, both four-cylinder turbo engines with outputs ranging from 150 to 265 hp (gas) and 136 to 204 hp (diesel). All engines are paired with the S tronic dual-clutch transmission, and the more potent variants will offer Audi's quattro all-wheel drive, sources said.
