Audi A5 2019 pricing and specs revealed

The Audi A5 range is available in Coupe, Sportback and Cabriolet models - and now there are new model names.

The Audi A5 2019 Coupe, Cabriolet and Sportback ranges have a shift in their naming as part of a model-year change, with the brand’s mid-size luxury coupe, convertible and five-door hatch following Audi's now familiar alphanumeric strategy.

Opening the range is the 40 TFSI model, which is available in two-door Coupe guise or as a five-door Sportback (both priced at $70,100 plus on-road costs) or in drop-top Cabriolet guise at $83,600. 

The 45 TFSI quattro is priced at $81,700 for both Coupe and Sportback, while the Cabriolet lists at $95,200.

The entry-level 40 TFSI model uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine with 140kW and 320Nm. It’s front-wheel drive, and fuel use is claimed at 5.6L/100km for Coupe and Sportback, and 5.9L/100km for the Cabriolet. The 0-100km/h claim is 7.3 seconds for the two-door, 7.5sec for the five-door and 7.9sec for the soft-top.

The five-door Sportback kicks off at $70,100 (plus on-road costs) for the 40 TFSI. The five-door Sportback kicks off at $70,100 (plus on-road costs) for the 40 TFSI.

The 45 TFSI uses a higher-tuned 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine producing 185kW/370Nm, and it is all-wheel drive rather than FWD. Fuel use for this version is claimed at 6.5L/100km for the Coupe and Sportback, and 6.7L/100km for the Cabriolet. The 0-100 performance times are: 5.8sec - Coupe; 6.0sec - Sportback; 6.3sec - Cabriolet.

As for equipment levels, the 40 TFSI rides on 19-inch alloy wheels (with a tyre repair kit - no spare), has Audi’s S line styling pack, LED headlights with LED daytime running lights, features driving mode selection, auto headlights and wipers, cruise control, smart key and push-button start, leather seat trim, sports front seats, electric seat adjustment for front occupants (memory settings for the driver’s seat) and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. There’s also dual-zone climate control and a leather steering wheel with paddle-shifters, and all models have Audi’s ‘virtual cockpit’ 12.3-inch digital dashboard display.
