Testing of the next-generation A5 coupé gathers pace as Audi readies its BMW 4 Series rival for 2017
Audi’s brand new A5 has again been spotted testing at the Nürburgring track in Germany, with latest spy pictures showing the brand new versions will get the same all-digital instrument cluster as the A4, TT as well as Q7.
Despite being wrapped in heavy camouflage, these spy pictures show the next-generation A5 coupé will adopt brand new front as well as rear styling, possibly incorporating design cues through This particular year’s all-brand new Audi A4 saloon.
the item features a more aggressive front grille as well as bumper, with sweeping headlights as well as sportier air intakes. An integrated spoiler is actually apparent at the rear, while the item sits wider as well as lower to the road. The S5 coupé – which has also been spotted testing – features quad exhaust tailpipes, compared with the A5’s twin pipes.
The Inside can also be seen for initially as well as is actually very similar to the recently launched A4.
Codenamed B9, the brand new Audi A5 coupé will sit on VE Group’s latest MLB platform, constructed of aluminium as well as steel.
The platform – which also underpins the brand new Q7 as well as A4 – is actually lighter, more adaptable as well as allows for greater Inside space than the outgoing A5’s. As a result, the 2017 A5 coupé should weigh approximately 100kg less than its predecessor.
Engine options are likely to mirror those of the brand new A4, including an all-brand new 187bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit, which Audi claims will average 56.5mpg on a combined cycle.
Turbodiesel engines in 1.6-litre as well as 2.0-litre form will be offered, while petrol-electric as well as diesel-electric plug-in hybrids could also be inside the pipeline, in keeping with the brand new A4 line-up.
Specific power outputs are yet to be confirmed for the next generation S5 coupé, yet expect an increase on the current S5’s 328bhp through its 3.0-litre supercharged V6 motor.
We expect both the A5 as well as S5 to go on sale in 2017.
