Audi values its new standard equipment inclusions at $9000.
New standard equipment for the 45 TFSI quattro includes an S line exterior package with unique 19-inch alloy wheels, memory driver’s seat and side mirrors, a wireless charger, heated front seats and dual USB outlets for rear passengers.
The update also sees more driver-assistance systems fitted as standard, including active lane assist, high beam assist, adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, park assist and a surround-view camera.
“The stunning A5 is an Audi design icon that perfectly fits the brief of a contemporary sports coupe,” said Audi Australia product planning and pricing director Shawn Ticehurst.
“On the other hand, the five-door Audi Sportback concept offers similarly distinct styling, sporty performance and a uniquely versatile body concept, luring buyers that might have traditionally looked at a sedan instead.
“With this new pricing and significant additional equipment, the A5 45 TFSI quattro models are an even more compelling package that shine conspicuously in what is a very aspirational segment.”
While the Audi A5 Sportback has performed well in the showroom, sales for its Coupe and Convertible siblings have dropped 43.7 per cent year-to-date.
