2016 Audi A5 Release Date, Price, Interior, Colors – The Audi A5 model was released for the first time in 2008, and the only updated it has received was back in 2012. Now it is time for some innovations with the A5 brand as Audi are releasing new 2016 model year vehicle which will be significantly remodeled. Due to the fact that the competition has been growing steadily and many automakers have been offering new and updated cars with various trims available, Audi needed to come back with an answer of their own.
The second generation of the Audi A5 is scheduled to appear in 2015, or at least by the end of the year. As the Coupe version arrives sooner, the convertible one will be released a few months later after the release of the coupe trim. What the greatest change for the car is its weight. Putting the car on a strict diet was necessary to enhance the car’s performance and make fuel consumption better. The car is going to weigh 220 pounds less as new materials are used and a number of different strategies are incorporated to downsize the weight of the car.
On the other hand, no changes have been introduced under the hood. Audi is hoping to use the same engine as before but will boost its performance with a number of different inclusions and updates. The specs are going to differ from before that is a fact. The look of the car is pretty great and the provided pictures confirm it and we predict a great future for the new A5 car and you can confirm that through our review.
2016 Audi A5 Exterior
The exterior design of the new Audi A5 is one of its greatest assets. The car’s look was initially its first and foremost advantage even way back when the car was first released. But this time the added features make it even better and even more attractive to the audience. The A5 has a unique profile which can be rarely copied by anyone. The designer states that this is his pride and joy and has stated that he does not assume that he can do much better than this. The fact that he was able to combine a classic sports car look and was able to blend it with modern car and add some contemporary features speaks for itself. The result is the car that you see before you and the one which is in the photos. A big presence on the road both in its look and its performance as well.
The parts which define the look are featured at the front. The car has a very peculiar nose and a unique one which helps it stand out from the mass. At the front we have a tall oblong grille that characterizes the look of the A5 vehicle. The new 2016 model will also have an update with the newly designed lights which distinguishes is from the previous cars. It also gives a new look and a new face to the brand. The added LED technology also helps and is welcomed to join the mix.
The inside fits the outside perfectly. The new Audi A5 has some very nice and some very elegant finishes on the inside, but not top imposing and not too eye-soaring which represents the perfect concept for the interior of the vehicle. The inside is lavishing and exclusive but is also simple and cleanly designed. It uses a very nice design theme and combines it with some high-grade materials in order to get its results. There are ample fine details, intricate instruments and light application. The interior also uses a metallic trim which is added to the switches and buttons of the inside as they feel quite fine to your touch and an enjoyment to use them.
The fact that the car means business on the inside is proven with the incorporation of a two-tone high-end leather and suede combination. The seats are not only good looking but are very comfortable this way and present a perfect combination of elegance and usefulness. To provide you with a freedom of choice, there are some added color schemes for the inside as you are able to pick between an aluminum or a piano-black trim. The convertible option has all the same details with the only difference of course being the top that swoops back behind quickly in a matter of seconds. The difference is also going to be with the trim levels and the equipment they receive as for instance the Premium Plus model will receive a new sound system. There are of course other goodies available in inside the car but it all depends on the trim level.
The engine of the second generation of the Audi A5 line will be carried over from the previous one. But this time the 2016 Audi A5 model will have an enhanced output level in order to differentiate it from its previous counterpart. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is a good choice and its output of 200 hp is more than good. Not only this, but all models from this line will include a quattro all-wheel drive.

As we mentioned before the, Coupe version will hit the stands by the end of this year, while the Convertible option will be available for purchase in the first part of 2016. Nevertheless, the car is not for the faint hearted and the price tag also says it so. The estimated price is set at around 40,000 USD.
