Audi will launch its much awaited A5 on the 5th of October. The A5 as the name suggests slots between the A4 and A6 being a sporty car much like the A7. The A5 comes in Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet form. It is sleeker than the A4 and comes across as more aggressive with the big Singleframe grille and shapely Matrix LED headlights. The Sportback which is dubbed as a five door coupe has a stretched wheelbase, the short overhangs and the long, wraparound front lid.
Inside there is a longer wheelbase compared to the previous A5 and space is really good especially at the back. Of course equipment levels are high with everything including the Audi virtual cockpit, ambient lighting, 3-zone climate control etc. Engine options would be a 2.0 TFSI though a diesel could also be there. There is also the hotter S5 with a turbocharged V6. It remains to be seen whether all body styles are offered in India but one thing the A5 is unique and does not have any rivals.
