Worcester Becomes Your Performance Circuit in the Sporty New Audi A5

Newly redesigned for the new vistas of a new model year, the hard-charging, feature-packed Audi sportback, coupe, and cabriolet trifecta holds plenty of promise for the Formula 1 racing aficionado. Here at Audi Shrewsbury, step behind the wheel, and you can indulge yours with an adrenalized thrill-ride to remember.

Power and Performance

You'll find a turbocharged 2.0 TFSI® four-cylinder engine under the A5 hood to power across Worcester, Northborough, Southborough and Westborough terrain or into Shrewsbury proper for some retail therapy alike. 273 pound-feet of torque delivers the pulling power only the athletic road feel of the powerplant's 252 horsepower can complement. Just choose an Audi A5 with a seven-speed S Tronic® dual-clutch auto transmission for efficiency and ease of gear shifts, or one sporting a six-speed manual to keep things excitingly hands-on, and hit the road.

Factor in standard quattro® all-wheel drive, the choice of three Audi drive select system modes, and an adaptive five-link front and rear suspension, and a spirited drive's all but assured. That's with the fuel economy to go the distance, too. Count on up to an estimated 24 city mpg/34 highway mpg/27 combined mpg in the Audi A5 sportback and cabriolet, flanked in the A5 coupe by a respectable 24 mpg in the city, 33 mpg down the highway, and 27 mpg combined.


Keeping the performance drive secure requires the distinctive Audi touch, and the automaker delivers with proof of its continuing commitment to yours. In advance of a potential collision, cutting-edge safety technology like Audi pre sense® basic and Audi pre sense® city help prepare your Audi A5 for impacts with security measures designed to stave off and mitigate their effects. Sidle into an A5 trim with available Audi side assist, incorporating Audi pre sense® rear, and optional rear cross traffic and vehicle exit assist functions, and it's easy to keep an eye on blind spots as well as nearby obstacles and vehicles.

Interior and Technology

Sometimes, for all trips great and small, it all comes down to a cockpit and cabin equipped to create a world apart for the ride. The new Audi A5 is a veritable showcase of high-end features to make the grade, from those suited to the drive itself to amenities for entertainment along the way.

Connoisseurs of keeping an eye on drive-time, navigation, audio metrics alike with eyes on the road will find the capability in the available, fully digital 12.3-inch virtual cockpit instrument cluster. It's even a breeze to project them onto Audi A5's windshield via the optional full-color head-up display. The car's available MMI® touch infotainment system features handwriting-recognition tech, so manual data input data, swipe-navigation of maps, and more help keep adventuring a matter of course.

What's more, the new A5 from Audi makes available Audi connect® integration with 4G LTE connectivity likewise built in. That means Google Earth data, weather conditions, traffic info, and other data at your fingertips for the duration. Switch gears to your favorite tunes whenever the ride demands a theme -- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard. You can even access your smartphone's features and apps and control them remotely using either A5's MMI® interface, its voice control function, or controls mounted on the A5 steering wheel.

Trim Levels


The confident luxury of the Audi A5 can be had in three exclusive flavors--Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Take some time to discover which is the best fit for you!



The A5's entry-point is the aptly-named Premium model, which comes with the aforementioned 252-hp engine as standard motivation, along with quattro. Also standard are leather seating surfaces, Audi presense with automatic braking and collision mitigation functions, a rear-view camera, MMI infotainment, and a panoramic sunroof.


As for exciting optional features, you'll find no shortage. The available S-line sport package makes the A5 look uniquely athletic, and comes with suspension and exclusive badging. The impressive Audi Virtual Cockpit with Google Earth, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and Audi Connect can also be equipped.


Premium Plus


Stepping up to the A5 Premium Plus model expands the luxurious nature of the range entry with standard full LED headlights, Audi advanced key with hands-free trunk release, and heated leather seating. You also get additional Audi connect services standard, and "side assist" with rear cross traffic alert and vehicle exit warning.


Optional features are similar to the Premium, but add ventilated seats, unique wheel designs, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system and heated steering wheel. The S-line sport package and full Audi Connect and Virtual Cockpit systems, remain available.




The most loaded A5 coupe is represented by the Prestige, which makes the full scope of Audi Connect connectivity standard, alongside the once-optional digital instrument display, and Bang & Olufsen audio system. On the safety front, a 360-degree top-down camera is added, as is a heads-up display that projects above the hood.


But for all it's top-shelf allure, the most exclusive options await as available equipment. Still offered is the S-line sport package, and warm weather bundle, but the adaptive cruise control, active lane assist, and traffic sign recognition are Prestige-only amenities. As is the adaptive damping suspension, which intelligently modulates the ride to make the already dynamic A5 a more versatile handler!
