The all new generations of A5 Coupe and S5 Coupe are improved in every way. They are packed with punchier engines, advanced safety and infotainment features, sharper dynamics, and slightly more spacious cabins.

According to , both the A5 and S5 Coupe have plenty of common with the Audi A4, which was designed by the legendary Audi designer Walter de Silva who claimed that it was the most beautiful car he has ever designed. The redesigned A5 and S5 Coupe have evolved from da Silva’s original design.

The tornado line from the original A5/S5 models that ran from the headlights over to the wheel arches to the rear end of the car is still present on the new ones. They also share a new power dome on the front bonnet is defined by two sculpted channels that highlight a central subtle bulge over the engine beneath. Both A5 and S5 Coupe are engaging in their own way. They both have great dynamic qualities and offer an excellent driving pleasure.

The Audi A5 Coupe comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI four-cylinder front-wheel engine that has 140kW and 320Nm and is tied with a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch transmission. The engine rides on 18-inch wheels and tires. Starting price of this model is $69,900.

On the inside, the car comes with sport seats which are power adjustable for driver and passenger, and there are bottle holders in the doors and three-zone automatic air with a ventilated glove compartment.

On the other hand, the Audi S5 Coupe comes with 2.0-liter TFSI Quattro engine that has 185kW and 370Nm. The pricing starts at $81,500. The car comes with most of the stuff that are loaded into the A5, but there are some extras that crank the price higher.
