For 2013, the A5 and S5 receive a revised grille, bumper and headlight treatment as well as the addition of Audi Connect on models equipped with MMI and navigation. The S5 get a new supercharged 3.0-liter V6, while last year's 4.2-liter V8 migrates to the all-new RS 5.
Audi has differentiated the 2012 A5 Cabriolet from its Coupe sibling with a new 18-inch, 15-spoke wheel design. There's an 18-inch, 10-spoke V-design wheel on the Coupe, while new S line trim options add a sportier appearance and nicer interior details.
The recent addition of the sleek A5 all-wheel-drive coupe to Audi's ever-broadening model lineup has been met with praise from both critics and devotees alike. Based on the newest platform architecture, which it shares with the 2010 A4 line, the A5 gives the German automaker a serious competitor to several premium-grade, enthusiast-oriented two-door models, including the BMW 3 Series, Infiniti G37 and new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe. With its potent powertrain choices, head-turning looks, comprehensive features, seating for four and a choice of manual or automatic transmissions, the A5 definitely raises Audi's overall image and style rating – and most likely will do the same for its sales numbers, as well.
