2010 Audi A5.
Audi A5 Coupé.
The A5 Coupé marries Audi’s emotional design language with genuine sportiness by combining supreme ride comfort and handling with the Audi brand’s renowned quality. Powerful engines, a dynamic chassis, and luxury-class features transform this two-door into a cutting-edge grand tourer.
Body and interior.
The Audi A5 Coupé epitomizes sportiness and elegance. Its dynamic silhouette, striking lines, accentuated surfaces, expressive front end, and distinctive tail end comprise a highly attractive design. The broad, low body measures 4.63 meters (15.19 ft) in length; its overall proportions are defined by the short front overhang and elongated transition from the C-pillar to the short tail end. The body boasts high rigidity and low weight; the front fenders are made of aluminum. Audi makes use of cutting-edge technologies to produce the body.
The four-seater is a full-blown touring car, up front and in the rear alike; its trunk capacity ranges from 455 to 829 liters (16.07 to 29.28 cubic ft). The rear seat backs can be folded down separately and unlocked easily. The interior is marked by functional elegance and uncompromising quality. The cockpit architecture is clearly oriented toward the driver. In addition to the low-slung standard seats, Audi offers a number of special extras – including climate-controlled comfort seats with built-in ventilation.
The Audi A5 Coupé is full of innovative drivetrain technologies, too. As of 132 kW (180 hp), the gasoline-engine versions feature the Audi valvelift system. All versions employ an energy-recovery system during deceleration to store surplus kinetic energy. In conjunction with the manual transmission, the three two-liter, four-cylinder versions boast the new start-stop system and the on-board computer with efficiency program.

Transmission versions offered by Audi for the A5 Coupé are the six-speed manual, the continuously variable multitronic, or the tiptronic. The 2.0 TFSI quattro and the 3.0 TDI quattro optionally come with the seven-speed S tronic, which delivers tremendous speed, comfort, and efficiency. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system – with a standard torque distribution of 40:60 – is standard for the 3.0 TDI and optional for three other engines. Upon request, it can be complemented by the new sport differential for the 3.0 TDI and the 3.2 FSI.
The Audi A5 Coupé is the benchmark in its class for precision steering, superb directional stability, high agility, and top-notch ride comfort. At both the front and rear, the main components of the suspension are made of aluminum. In the front-wheel-drive versions, the new electronic stabilization program (ESP) featuring an electronic axle-differential lock have made the car’s handling even more dynamic.
The large brakes can be applied precisely as required. Options for the Audi A5 Coupé include the Audi drive select system, which can be combined with adaptive damping, dynamic steering, and the sport differential. It allows the driver to vary the characteristics of the engine, automatic transmission, and steering.
Assistance and communications systems.
The Audi A5 Coupé optionally features several high-tech systems: adaptive cruise control, Audi side assist, and Audi lane assist. They help to maintain proper following distance and assist the driver in changing lanes or remaining in a lane.
The top-of-the-range navigation system in the Audi A5 Coupé is truly next-generation. Its features include a high-capacity hard disk drive for navigation, music, and telephone data, a high-resolution seven-inch display with three-dimensional mapping, whole-word voice input, and a DVD drive. With the TV module and DAB digital audio, the system can become a true multimedia center. The Bang & Olufsen sound system pampers the ears. And a cell phone can be integrated as a Bluetooth car phone.
