2014 Audi A5 Overview
- Coupe/convertible counterpart to the A4 sedan
- Turbocharged 2.0-L four-cylinder makes 220-hp, 9-hp more than last year
- Seating for four passengers
One of the best-looking cars on the road, the 2014 Audi A5 offers both top-up (coupe) and top-down (convertible) motoring in a sporty package that isn’t short on luxury or performance.
Simply put, the A5 is stunning. Audi’s design tendencies get augmented in coupe form and the A5 is lean, long, and athletic. For 2013, the headlights and front grille were redesigned, along with the LED daytime running lights. 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 the aforementioned Cabriolet (convertible) version with a power folding soft-top roof.
The interior of the 2014 A5 features superb build quality and upscale materials, including standard leather upholstery. On the whole, the cabin is well-appointed but feels low and slung, much like a sports car. 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, navigation system, Bang & Olufsen sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, and adaptive cruise control. Also offered are Audi’s latest in-car technologies, the updated Audi MMI and Audi Connect systems.
Both the A5 Coupe and Cabriolet get the same engine, Audi’s 220-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder which makes 258 pounds-feet of torque. In the coupe, the engine is available with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the cabrio offers the six-speed automatic and a CVT. 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.
