Overview Information

The A5 cabriolet is the latest convertible from Audi replacing the aged A4 cabriolet with a more stylish vehicle. Although most competitive vehicles have retractable hard tops, the A5 cabriolet retains a power operated soft top. The convertible top retracts in 15 seconds at speeds up to 30 MPH. Inside there is seating for four. Most A5 models are equipped with a 211-bhp four-cylinder turbo paired with either a CVT (FWD) or six-speed automatic (AWD). The S5 performance model adds a 333-bhp supercharged six-cylinder engine and seven-speed sequential manual transmission.

What Changed:

An all-new A5 Cabriolet model replaces the A4 Cabriolet in the Audi lineup. Since the A5 is a coupe variant of the A4, the nomenclature changes with the new model. Like the coupe, the A5 cabriolet is also offered in a higher performance S5 model. A5 models are powered by a 211-bhp turbocharged four-cylinder. S5 models feature a 333-bhp supercharged V6 under the hood. The S5 also receives an 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and a sport version of Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system.
