Even before your first drive, the sportiness of the Audi A5 Coupé is apparent. The new design features of the elegant three-door coupé and its wide air intakes with chrome clasps give the new A3 its sporty persona. The optional 20-inch aluminium wheels are emphasised by the highlighted wheel arches. All body and engine variants in the A5 range come with LED headlights as standard equipment, Audi also offer Matrix LED headlights with LED rear lights. Audi has significantly modified the exterior, with the front end looking even more powerful than before. The singleframe with the honeycomb grille is flatter and wider and the grille is reminiscent of the classic Audi Sport quattro from 1984.
The A5 Coupé has grown in length by 24 millimetres (0.9 in) and now measures 4,697 millimetres (15.4 ft). The A5 is unchanged with respect to width and height. The Coupé is 1,846 millimetres (6.1 ft) high, has a wheelbase of 2,764 millimetres and a luggage compartment of 450 litres (15.9 cu ft). The Audi A5 is a lightweight car. With the entry-level TFSI, the Coupé (without driver) tips the scales at just 1,455 kg (3,207.7 lb).
The interior design of the updated Audi A5 is spacious and generous. It focuses on the horizontal lines and has a wide band of air vents. At its centre is the standard MMI touch display, the control centre of the new operating system. With a depth of only 13 millimetres (0.5 in), it is extremely slender. The new MMI touch system helps to keep you connected and offers an experience similar to that of a smartphone. A 10.1-inch touch display with acoustic feedback replaces the rotary pushbutton used in previous models. New functions also make navigation intelligent and intuitive. For example, it suggests routes based on routes previously driven. Audi connect and Audi connect plus comprise a multitude of online services, including online traffic sign and hazard information, on-street parking and the Car-to-X service traffic light information.
