2013 Audi A5 Overview
The 2013 Audi A5 is the coupe version of the popular A4 sedan, offering sportier performance and looks in a two-door package.
The A5 is stunning. The headlights blend nicely with the front grill, both of which were redesigned for 2013 along with the signature LED daytime running lights. The roof glides over the whole car like a flowing blanket, and the creases along the side of the A5 look well-placed. The standard wheels are 18-inch alloys, but 19-inch wheels are optional. Bi-Xenon headlights are also optional, but we think the standard halogens look great. Also available is a Cabriolet version with a folding soft-top roof. Other exterior options include heated exterior mirrors, LED taillights, and an S-Line package with ultra-muscled body panels.
The interior of the 2013 Audi A5 is like every other Audi: the build quality is superb, the materials are elegant, and the seats are leather. The standard features list is long and includes tri-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, and a tilt/telescoping multifunction steering wheel are all standard. The options list is rather extensive as well with available premium leather seats, satellite navigation, Bang & Olufsen sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, and adaptive cruise control.
Both the A5 Coupe and Cabriolet get the same engine – Audi’s brilliant 211-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 258 pounds-feet of torque. In the coupe, the engine is available with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, while the cabrio offers the six-speed automatic and a CVT. Both the coupe and cabrio can be outfitted with front-wheel drive or “Quattro” all-wheel drive. Buyers of the A5 should expect fuel economy ratings of around 22/30 mpg city/highway.
The A5 coupe gets eight airbags, while the cabrio version gets six (no side curtains). In addition, the Audi A5 gets all type of traction, stability, and braking technology to keep things on the straight and narrow. Optional safety technology includes lane-merge assist technology and a rear-view parking camera.
