Here is the new 2018 Audi A5 Coupe and 2018 S5 Coupe

]]>

You’d be forgiven for thinking the new Audi A5 Coupe is the old Audi A5 Coupe, but that’s neither here nor there.

The newest iteration from Ingolstadt sports relatively the same profile as the old coupe that had been with us for about a decade. This time around however, the new A5 gets the “singleframe” grille treatment up front, a power dome on the top and some semblance of hips in the back.

Underneath—where it really matters—we know the A5 will sport two new gasoline engines and three diesel engines for European buyers, although the latter probably won’t make their way to the States—ever.

According to Audi, the A5 will get a power bump somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 percent, so we’re willing to bet our lives on the 2.0-liter TFSI making an appearance in the base A5 when it goes on sale here sometime after November. In the A4, the 2.0-liter turbo-4 makes 252 horsepower, which would be a healthy bump over the 2016 A5’s 220 hp. According to Audi, the engines will be up to 22 percent more fuel efficient.

Audi officials said Thursday that one in four A5 models sold are performance varieties, which is a healthy clip for any automaker. The S5 gets Audi’s 3.0-liter V-6 that churns 354 hp, up 21 hp from the 2016 model.

Audi hasn’t yet released official specs for the U.S.-bound A5 or S5.

Base 4-cylinder models can be married to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic or a 6-speed manual. Like the S4, the S5 will be an 8-speed automatic only—at least for now.

Perhaps the biggest departure (at least mechanically) will be the first application of Audi’s Quattro Ultra all-wheel-drive system. Unlike prior versions, the A5’s AWD system can disconnect from the rear wheels to save fuel.

Beyond that, the A5 seems to have shed around one and a quarter Rihannas (or 132 pounds in the Queen’s English) in overall weight and gained one Virtual Cockpit.

It’s not exactly controversial to call the new look a little “evolutionary,” but at least the old shape still works, works, works.
