2011 Audi A5 Coupe.

Award-winning Design.
The refined A5 connotes motion – even when motionless. Designed by Walter de’Silva, the A5 is a progressive coupe in every sense. A fact not lost on AUTOMOBILE Magazine as it was named the 2009 “Design of the Year.” It’s elegance in motion with distinctive performance overtones. It’s this combined effect that creates what he calls, “The most beautiful car I’ve ever designed.”

LED Daytime Running Lights.
The available signature LED daytime running lights not only add a distinct look to the vehicle, they also improve visibility while using half of the energy of conventional bulbs.

Sculpted Contours.
The sculpted contours of the body reveal precise lines that define its visual hallmarks: two feature lines in the shape of a “V” uniting the A5 from the end of the hood to the bumper. Combined with dynamic curves, the body allows for the interplay of light and shadow, giving the A5 a pronounced dynamism.

Driver-oriented Cockpit.
Angled slightly toward you, the driver-oriented cockpit with a hand-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel is the focal point, where technology and craftsmanship intersect. The stitching, the precise positioning of the spokes for your thumbs and even the thickness of the steering wheel itself create a feeling of total control.

Benchmark Fit and Finish.
The interior of the A5 places you in the middle of thousands of exquisite details, all designed to create a one-of-a-kind driving experience. Premium materials like Dark Brown Walnut wood or Aluminum inlays are honed to a maximum tolerance of just 0.2 mm. The Genuine Milano leather undergoes no less than 45 tests to determine durability and comfort. Even the color of the leather, dash and inlays are precisely matched, compensating for variations in texture and reflectivity. Together, they create an interior unmatched in its class.

Three-spoke Sport Steering Wheel.
The leather-wrapped, three-spoke design steering wheel has a sporty look and feel. The multifunction steering wheel provides easy access to Bluetooth®-enabled phone, audio volume, CD track, seek functions and voice control.

Tilting Glass Panorama Sunroof.
The sunroof provides passengers with a light-filled driving experience.

Extensive Audio Capabilities.
The Audi A5 offers a considerable number of ways to enjoy the available 14 speaker Bang & Olufsen® Sound System. Among them is commercial-free SIRIUS® Satelite Radio, the built-in DVD/CD player, SD card slots, the MMI® 40-GB hard drive, Bluetooth® streaming as well as Audi Music Interface which allows you to connect and control your iPod®.

MMI® Operating System.
Building on a tradition of intuitive and easy-to-use operation, the latest generation navigation system utilizes a 40GB hard drive and NVIDIA chip to deliver 3D graphics in stunning detail. The system includes a 7'' full color screen in the center console, an easy-to-use joystick on the main control knob and a color driver information display located in the instrument panel.

Audi Music Interface.
This connective technology offers intelligent integration with the iPod®. Any iPod® Generation 4 and higher may be connected through the glove box, providing full iPod® controls on the MMI® screen. This feature allows connection of a USB flash drive or a conventional auxiliary audio input as well.

Bluetooth® Mobile Phone Preparation.
The advanced technology of the Audi A5 allows you to conveniently access your Bluetooth®-enabled phone's features via the MMI® operating system, allowing for easy, intuitive hands-free communication. For specific compatibility and operation instructions, refer to audiusa.com/bluetooth or contact your local Audi dealer for the latest listing of compatible phones.

Split-folding Rear Seats.
Rear seats can be folded together or individually for increased flexibility and storage options. When the rear seats are folded, access to the trunk is available from the interior creating a convenient pass-through. When unfolded, the rear seats comfortably accommodate two adults.

2.0 TFSI® Named Ward’s “10 Best Engines”.
The Audi 2.0 liter turbocharged DOHC engine was named one of Ward’s “10 Best Engines” for the fifth year in a row as well as “International Engine of the Year” for the fifth time. Years ahead of the competition, it combines Audi valvelift system, variable valve timing, TFSI® direct injection and turbocharging for more power and greater efficiency. The 2.0 TFSI was the first engine to combine gasoline direct injection with turbocharging in largescale production. Producing 211hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque, it has been the engine of choice for more than 1.3 million Audi drivers worldwide.

Quattro® All-wheel Drive.
Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly don’t perform that way, either. quattro is essentially a mechanical system devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque instantaneously to where it’s needed. This means quattro is adjusting power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving situations, quattro distributes the power between each axle by sending 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing grip, quattro ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling, regardless of the road conditions.

FSI® Direct Injection.
Audi Fuel Stratified Injection, or FSI®, offers the benefits of increased performance and fuel efficiency. FSI direct injection delivers a precise amount of fuel directly into the engine cylinders as opposed to the engine intake runners. This advanced process helps ensure a more complete combustion, thereby diminishing waste and increasing power.

Additionally, the specially designed piston heads compress the fuel-air mixture in a spiraling motion, creating the most efficient combustion possible. Making the most of these technologies allows for greater efficiency in the combustion process.

Audi Valvelift System.
Audi valvelift system helps elevate the performance characteristics of variable valve timing. The result is smooth power buildup, instantaneous throttle response and up to a 7 percent reduction in fuel consumption. Audi valvelift system intelligently varies the lift and duration of engine exhaust valves in response to engine load and power needs. Optimizing air management, Audi valvelift system helps create maximum torque across a broad range of RPM without sacrificing efficiency.

Five-link Front Suspension.
With the finely tuned front-suspension components secured to the subframe, the five-link front suspension increases ride quality by isolating road harshness and vibration from the cabin. The use of weight-saving aluminum for critical components helps reduce unsprung mass at each wheel, allowing the suspension to respond more rapidly. The net effect is a driving experience that is extremely responsive, smooth and predictable. It is handling that has become an Audi hallmark.

Audi drive select.
With 27 available vehicle handling and performance combinations, Audi drive select is another example of Audi progressive technology. Whether you prefer the smooth, luxurious ride of Comfort mode or the more direct and firmer responses of Dynamic mode, Audi drive select allows you to tailor the vehicle to your liking.

Beginning with three preset vehicle configurations, Audi drive select manages the adaptive suspension, dynamic steering, transmission shift characteristics and throttle response according to the selected mode: Comfort, Automatic or Dynamic. Adding to the versatility of Audi drive select, the Individual mode manages 27 personalized variations, essentially allowing the driver to configure the vehicle driving dynamics according to his or her precise preferences.

Quattro® All-wheel Drive.
Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly don’t perform that way, either. quattro is essentially a mechanical system devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque instantaneously to where it’s needed. This means quattro is adjusting power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving situations, quattro distributes the power between each axle by sending 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing grip, quattro ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling, regardless of the road conditions.

Responsive Servotronic® Steering.
Servotronic® is speed-dependent power steering in which the amount of power assist provided is dictated by road speed, providing even more comfort and convenience for the driver. The amount of power assist is greatest at low speeds, making it easier to maneuver the car. At higher speeds, an electronic-sensing system gradually reduces the level of power assist, creating a tighter, more dynamic steering feel.

To further enhance handling and ride comfort, significant attention to detail has been paid to suppressing vibrations at the attachment points along the steering column. The result is a nearly 100 percent reduction in steering wheel vibration, offering the driver smoothness at virtually any speed.

Innovative Braking System.
Audi has implemented a number of ingenious features to help maximize braking effectiveness. In wet conditions, the brake disc wiping system gently pulses the brakes to help dissipate water buildup. Keeping the discs as dry as possible helps promote the most effective braking. Additionally, the brake assist system is able to detect an attempt at full braking and apply full stopping power when required. The advantage is that braking distance is significantly reduced.

ESC.
Audi has always held firm the belief that prevention is the best safety feature of all. And the Audi A5 Coupe offers an abundance of features designed to help keep you out of harm’s way. For instance, the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is a vehicle dynamics management system that applies brakes to individual wheels to help make the vehicle easier to control in adverse conditions. Helping to reduce the danger of swerving and improving directional stability, the program identifies the car's intended direction and responds accordingly.

Quattro® All-wheel Drive.
Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly don’t perform that way, either. quattro is essentially a mechanical system devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque instantaneously to where it’s needed. This means quattro is adjusting power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving situations, quattro distributes the power between each axle by sending 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing grip, quattro ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling, regardless of the road conditions.
