Even though we expected something new from the Audi, 2018 Audi A5 is practically a follower of the old A4 model, recently tested and released last year, so there are no many differences from that model. The first change will be a lack of two doors for the second row and some changes in term of the design and inside equipment. That is something which we could expect these days after the many manufacturers had changed the design of their cars; Audi did the same with this car. It is visible in better-shaped lines and front lights.
As we said, there are new LED front lights on new 2018 Audi A5, slightly different from the old ones. Looking from the outside, the new Audi represents the same and known design and shape, as we used to see on the models from this manufacturer. The front rhomboidal grille is gridded with elegant chromatic lines, which are also noticed at the window frames and as the details on the bumpers. This prolate car has the same shape as traditional sedans in the class, with almost classic truck shape, with simple tail lights. Besides the discretely curved line on the side of the car, there are no other details in outside look.
Do not be fooled with the traditional shape and design from the outside of the 2018 Audi A5 and expect the same in the cabin of this car. Audi is the great factory and they surely know what to change in term of the modernity and electronic equipment additions. The first look at the modern and luxury dashboard represents the great material used in making of it, with the large TFT screen, which collects all commands and needed buttons in there. Even though the photos of the cabin show the opposite, all commands and buttons are perfectly angled relative to the driver.
2018 Audi A5 Engine
In term of the engine, 2018 Audi A5 has the same option as one of the US 2017 Audi A4 trim version, obviously proven as the best for this size car. That is 2.0-liter petrol engine with 252 horsepower, paired with the eight-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission. This version will be offered for the European market as well, with the optional diesel engine.
There is no buyer who will be disappointed with the 2018 Audi A5, but it is still good to know that this manufacturer offers new models every year, even not much redesigned. The expected price is around $44,000 for the base model.
