2018 Audi A5 Coupe Release Date, Specs, Review, Price
Audi has been released the original version of A5 in 2007 and we didn’t see any drastic updates up to now. What makes it interesting is the car is still the favorite with the proof that it has great selling record in the segment. It means that it has good design and function at the very first place. Finally, they cannot keep it same. Something has to be changed for 2018 Audi A5 Coupe. This upcoming model will go with the new MLB Evo platform that is also used by the latest A4. With the new platform, more changes are possible to create.
2018 Audi A5 Coupe Exterior
The use of new platform provides more than 220 pounds or lighter than the previous model. The weight could be reduced to make it more rigid and the chassis will be lighter at the same time. It has evolutionary changes. It happens because the company will share the design scheme with the latest Q7 and A4. It might get round body to replace the more angular look. The recognized A4 look can be seen at the front part with the minimal changes. Additionally, you will see the new design for its back with the new taillights, rectangular exhausts as well as a cleaner-looking bumper for 2018 Audi A5 Coupe.
2018 Audi A5 Coupe Interior
2018 Audi A5 Coupe is a bit similar to the A4 if it is about the cabin layout. It is also expected to share more details from the larger A6. We think it is good if Audi will use the same dashboard and digital instrument cluster as the A4 as long as the infotainment system, center stack and the finishing touches are identical to the A6. For the coupe, it will be the base model. The newer platform allows passengers to get more space and changes it to have a lower driving position so the driver has better connect with its design.
2018 Audi A5 Coupe Engine
2018 Audi A5 Coupe likely will use the same engines as the A4. They will remove the 1.4-liter turbocharged mill since a possible engine can be the 2.0-liter inline turbo four to provide the amount of output about 187 and 248 hp as the standard to complete European market. For the US, they create something more powerful with the use of 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel to provide 150 or 190 hp as well as V6 diesel and 3.0 liter to pump out about 218 or 272 hp. About the higher engines, they will only use it for Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system and the base will get a front-wheel drive that is only presented in Europe. It seems that there will be new 10-speed DSG gearbox that will be used for the first time for this car but certain markets might get a 6-speed manual or 8-speed auto.
