Audi offers a lift to the range A5

Audi S5Arriving mid-term, the Audi A5 has just undergone a major facelift to keep going until 2014-2015. With, in particular, new engines on offer.

As expected, the Audi A5 range has to pay for a facelift to continue serenely on his way up from 2014 to 2015. Usually, with the brand with the rings, the restyling is discrete. This time, it is much stronger and seems to be based on the A6 and the new concept car Sportback.

That may especially notice it by looking at the front since the Audi A5 adopts restyled headlights and grille. The bumper was also redesigned with enlarged air intakes and blades longer present. Less change in contrast to the rear lights, with optional LED strips. The profile has not changed, either for the coupe, the convertible version or Sportback, but the whole is clearly more sporty. With, finally, new alloy wheels and 16 shades available in the catalog.

Inside, difficult to detect new. It may be noted, however a new sport steering wheel and a GPS equipped with a Google map. The A5 Sportback will also offer an optional rear bench seat with 3 instead of 2. However, throughout the range, we will find the CD radio with 8 HP, DVD player with 7 inch screen 3D display and intuitive management system commands.

Under the hood, Audi worked consumption for the engine to reduce by 11%. The 1.8 TFSI wins 10 horses and now develops 170 horsepower, while the new 3.0 TFSI V6 will offer 272 horse power. Diesel side, the program three engines: the 2.0 TDI goes from 170 horsepower to 177 horsepower while the 3.0 TDI V6 will offer 204 horsepower and 245 horsepower. Finally, the S5 should switch to a V8 4.2 V6 3.0 TFSI downsized from 333 horses.

The presentation of the new Audi A5 will be held at the next Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The marketing should occur at the end of this year.Audi S5
