Two cars that had been leading the luxury coupe market has BMW 4 Series and Audi A5. Now we will see more in what will be the 2017 Audi A5, not just a minor facelift as we are accustomed in the car industry but the new car will now use a new modular platform VW Group. Just as before, there will not be any rear wheel drive models which is a shame but in the US market, Audi A5 2017 will only come as a model quattro four-wheel-drive which is a plus in bad weather climate and not only.

2017 Audi A5 redesign ans Interior Exterior

Its exterior will not be as impressive as the interior unfortunately. Although now will ride on a new platform, 2017 Audi A5 will be almost identical to the older model with one exception, the front fascia that will get grille is slightly smaller and a new pair of headlights with LED very nice pattern that we first saw on the R8.

Inside the cabin, the 2017 Audi A5 will be very similar to the new A4, so it would likely share the same dashboard and the same layout for the front seats, offers a driving experience that is very similar. This means that it will also get leather seats, satellite navigation, aluminum inserts, an excellent infotainment system as well as one of the best pair of front seat out there.

Audi A5 2017 specifications

Speaking of the engine, the new 2017 Audi A5 will stick to the previous recipe for its base model. It will be a 220 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that is coupled both with 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic, both transmit the engine’s power to the ground through a system of four-wheel-drive. As you would expect, the machine is not really on par with others in this price range so Audi had to solve. This is the main reason why the 2017 A5 will get a new engine for the higher-end trim. It’s likely to be a 3.0-liter supercharged or turbocharged V6 with about 280 horsepower that will allow the car to finally compete with cars such as the new Lexus RC.

2017 Audi A5 release date and price

Unlike previous models, the new engine is said to have more than ever that should give it an edge in its class. 2017 Audi A5 release date has not been announced for sure but it seems that the new car will be launched in late 2016 with a base price of about $ 41,000 US dollars is still a lot by any standard, especially if you take into consideration what kind of machine you get. Next Audi A5 2017 will be a refreshment in its segment.
