Audi has a stylish luxury coupe to compete with the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz CLK. The A5 has a familiar 3.2L V-6 under the hood partially mounted behind the front axle to improve weight distribution and handling. The S5 performance model upgrades to a 4.2L V8 rated at 354 horsepower. Both models offer a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive is standard. Options include adaptive cruise control, bi-xenon headlights, rearview camera, and wood interior trim. The S line sports package adds 19-inch alloy wheels, exclusive interior trim, sport suspension, and unique paint colors.
