2021 Audi A5 Coupe, Cabriolet, and Sportback Model Overview at Audi Cincinnati East

About the Audi A5 Series

A total of three unique personalities are found in the distinctive Audi A5 lineup -- Coupe, Cabriolet, and Sportback. Each model is powered by a dynamic yet efficient 2.0-liter TFSI® direct-injection DOHC four-cylinder engine which produces 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Matched with an advanced seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive, these impressive models each provide groundbreaking performance to inspire your drive.

Offering quintessential coupe styling, the A5 Coupe features a dynamic S line® exterior featuring pronounced fender badges, side sills, and bumpers. Equally as sporty as it is sophisticated, this A5 stands out from the ordinary.

Looking for a combination of luxurious refinement and top-down thrills? The elegant design lines of the Audi A5 Cabriolet simply can't help but draw attention to themselves. You'll enjoy its acoustic folding roof that absorbs unwanted noise and is even able to be raised at speeds of up to 31 MPH.

Using the inspiration of a coupe, the A5 Sportback blends style with practicality by extending its sloping roofline and stretching the wheelbase. Legendary quattro® all-wheel drive technology includes a variable torque split which is able to intuitively direct power to where it's needed, giving you greater stability across all types of road conditions.
