2016 AUDI A5

Dressed in what might as well be called a finely custom-made suit, the Audi A5 and S5 Car and Cabriolet transmit an atmosphere of selectiveness, beauty and power. Available since 2011, the general look of the auto has changed next to no since its presentation. For the 2016 models, the great looking S line outside trim bundle is being offered no matter how you look at it, Audi Interface WiFi has been added to the Route in addition to bundle, the Blast and Olufsen sound framework is standard on the Premium In addition to and Eminence trim levels, and a red convertible top is offered for the Cabriolet.                                                                                                                                     The All new 2016 Audi A5 is offered in both Coupe and Cabriolet formats. Within each body style there are two trim levels, Premium and Premium Plus. There is also a high-performance S5 iteration—similarly offered in both hardtop and convertible, but with Premium Plus and prestige trim packages. Pricing for the standard A5 Coupe starts at $40,500, while the S5 starts at $53,000. The A5 Cabriolet starts at $47,895, while the S5 Cabriolet’s pricing begins at $61,000.

Standard features for A5 Premium models include 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and taillights, foglights, automatic windshield wipers, heated exterior mirrors, a tilt-only sunroof for the Coupe, leather, Bluetooth, and Audi’s MMI infotainment interface with a 6.5-inch monitor.

A5 Premium In addition to begins at $42,795 for the Car and $50,195 for the Cabriolet. Standard components include auto-diminishing mirrors, warmed front seats, keyless passage and ignition, and the Blast and Olufsen sound framework to the Premium bundle's offerings. 

As already specified. the 2016 Audi S5 is offered in Premium In addition to and Glory trim levels. The Premium In addition to bundle is for all intents and purposes indistinguishable to that of the A5—save an all the more capable motor. 

Audi's 2016 S5 Roadster Renown begins at $59,350 and highlights versatile headlights, Bluetooth, WiFi, Route, voice controls, front and raise stopping sensor exhibits, a back perspective camera, and blind side checking. It ought to be noticed these components can be added to the Premium In addition to demonstrate as the discretionary Innovation Bundle. The All new 2016 Audi S5 Cabriolet Eminence begins at $67,345.                                                                                                          Without question one of the most handsome automobiles currently offered; even some five years into its model run, the 2016 Audi A5/S5 still looks fresh. Its nicely balanced proportions, strong greenhouse, and sculpted shoulder lines imply strength and give the car grace as well as a definitive presence.

Here, we’ll be quite honest; we’ve always preferred the look of closed Audis to convertibles, as the models seem to lose something in translation to Cabriolet. With that said, the Cabriolet versions are still quite good looking—they just lose something when compared to their closed counterparts.

New for the 2016 S5 models is an optional styling package Audi refers to as Black Optic plus. Key elements include a honeycomb grille insert and a black surround for the signature Audi Singleframe grille insert. Xenon headlights with an LED light strip and foglights are also part of the package. Black exterior mirrors, quad exhaust tips, and 20-inch double spoke wheels with a matte titanium finish complete the package.

Highlights of the S-Line styling package, now standard across the board for the A5, include: a high gloss black surround for the grille, gloss black window trim surrounds, gloss black 10-spoke 19-inch wheels, and a rear spoiler.

New for the 2016 Audi A5 Cabriolet lineup is a red canvas folding soft top. The multilayer roof can be raised in 15 seconds and is finished so well, you’ll never know you’re in a convertible when it is deployed.                                                                                                                                       The oft-imitated Audi insides are the jealousy of the business. 

Proudly driver-driven, each control is inside simple span of the driver. Assembled in a curve encompassing the driving position, instrumentation and controls are exhibited in three unmistakable groupings. 

Normally, the tach and speedo are situated specifically before the driver and are both exceptionally readable and also satisfying to the eye. The inside stack is delegated with the screen for Audi's MMI framework, while the atmosphere control framework stays the middle stack. Pleasantly exhibited around the shifter are controls for the MMI framework, the sound framework, stopping brake, and the ignition catch for models with keyless begin. 

To this effectively good looking environment, highlighting close ergonomic flawlessness, the 2016 Audi A5's discretionary S line inside bundle includes dark entryway ledge cutting edges, an Audi elite shifter for manual transmission models, a three-talked level bottomed directing wheel with movement paddles for models outfitted with the mechanized manual transmission, piano black trim inlays, leather seats with Alcantara accents, and a black cloth headliner.

Comfort & Cargo Capacity

Let’s get this said right off the bat; given the sleekness of the 2016 Audi A5/S5 Coupes and Cabriolets, rear seat legroom is pretty much non-existent. If the front passenger is willing to slide their seat far forward, you’ll squeeze an adult back there, but a driver would have to be very short to accommodate a third passenger. This is pretty much standard for any coupe in this class, though, so we won’t file that as a knock against the Audi.

Whether you go with the standard seats, or the optional sport seats, you’ll find all-day comfort and outstanding support. This is a car meant for long-distance touring, and its accommodations are wonderfully reflective of this fact. A really nice touch for the Cabriolet is optional neck-warming vents in the standard seats (not offered with the sport seats), which make top down driving in cooler weather feasible.

Back to the MMI system for a moment, we prefer the dial controller on the center console you get with the Premium Plus and Prestige packages to the dash mounted one on the Premium package. It’s much easier to reach use, plus it looks way cooler. It also comes with a larger monitor.

Cargo capacity is 12.2 cubic feet with the Coupe and 10.2 cubic feet for the Cabriolet (with the top folded). While these numbers sound a bit on the lean side for a car this size, the space is thoroughly usable. Further, the rear seat backs fold to increase capacity.

Neither NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash test data on the 2016 Audi A5/S5. However, the closely related Audi A4 did quite well across the board in both organizations’ testing.

Standard safety features include ABS, traction control, stability control, and a full complement of airbags. Meanwhile, blind spot monitoring, front and rear proximity sensor arrays, and a rearview camera are optional on Premium Plus trim.

The S5’s Prestige package makes these elements standard. Additionally, Prestige package options include smart cruise control along with frontal collision warning and mitigation.Since the 2015 model year, all-wheel drive has been the sole powertrain arrangement for the A5. Power originates from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-barrel with 220 strength and 258 ft-lbs of torque. 

With the A5 Roadster, a six-velocity manual transmission is the standard offering, while an eight-rate programmed can be had as discretionary gear. The eight-pace programmed is the main transmission fitted to the A5 Cabriolet. 

Efficiency for the Car is evaluated at 26 mpg by and large with the manual, 25 with the programmed, and 24 for the Cabriolet. 

The 2016 Audi S5 gets a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 333 strength and 325 ft-lbs of torque. A seven-rate mechanized manual is fitted to the Cabriolet as standard hardware and a possibility for the roadster. A six-velocity manual transmission is the standard offering for the S5 Car. 

The Car returns 20 mpg generally speaking with the manual transmission and 21 with the mechanized manual—as does the Cabriole.In the event that we are to keep things 100, we need to say neither the A5 nor the S5 will set your hair ablaze as far as their execution potential. While their motors are more than satisfactory, they don't generally exceed expectations as far as force yield. Thusly, both models have a tendency to raise the back in execution arranged examinations inside of their companion bunches. 

Then again, they are pleasantly adjusted autos with all-climate tractability—on account of their standard all-wheel-drive powertrains. Further, both autos are outstandingly agreeable out and about and completely splendid on lengthy drives. 

Besides, they do surrender some ground in inside and out execution, they corner pleasantly and can be very enlivening to drive. Primary concern, if hard and fast execution matters less to you than style and comfort, the Audi showroom likely has the extravagance two-entryways you've been looking for.
