New Audi A5 in Austin

The 2018 Audi A5 in Austin is the First in a New Generation of Capable Luxury Cars

The Audi A5 luxury car has long racked up points in Austin as a top performance car for the money. Legendary Audi reliability and capability paired beautifully with A4-inspired designs and lavish cabin options to create a spectacular coupe/convertible option for the entry-level luxury car buyer. But, it was due for a change.

With the release of the all-new 2018 Audi A5, the recipe for success has gotten some new flavor. You may not notice any major changes at first glance, but look a little deeper: the unique touch of modern Audi design can be seen in every stitch and across every line. The new lineup offers the new 2018 Audi A5 Coupe (classic two-door), A5 Cabriolet (two-door convertible), and the A5 Sportback (new four-door hatchback), which we're seeing for the first time on American shores.

2017 Audi A5 vs 2018 Audi A5: What's Changed?

  • All-new Sportback model for 2018
  • Complete redesign of body and interior
  • A5 horsepower gets a boost for 2018, up to 252 HP from an updated turbo engine
  • Updated cabin materials and features
  • Updates to Audi's MMI touchscreen system for better ease of use

Other Trims and Configurations

In classic style, the new 2018 Audi A5 is available in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Since Audi offers so many features standard, and most available on package or accessory options, the trim levels are a bit of a formality. All three grades are available on A5 coupe, cabriolet, and Sportback models, and the Prestige trim gives you the full range of driver-assistance features, tech features, connectivity and smartphone tools, and premium materials.

All three trims (nine configurations in total) come equipped with Audi's 2.0-liter turbo, good for 273 pound-feet of torque. When properly-equipped, the 2018 Audi A5 can pull a 0 - 60 in as little as 5.0 seconds.

The 2018 Sportback: Design and Performance

"Sportback" is a term used primarily by Audi, so if it sits strangely on your tongue, you're not alone. It's not quite a sedan, but not quite a coupe, delicately riding the line between the two classic designs. Four doors and a diving roofline complement its overall character for a sharp new look. The Sportback comes loaded with Audi's updated 252-hp turbocharged TFSI 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and quattro all-wheel drive. New for 2018 is an available seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch, available on all A5 models.
