The long awaited Audi A5 first went on display at the the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. The A5 is a luxurious coupe which was designed to go up against the likes of BMW's 3 series coupe. Styling and design of the A5 is similar to the Audi Nuvolari Quattro concept which went on display at the 2003 Geneva show.

With a length of 4.63 m, the Audi A5 clearly belongs to a superior class of coupé. Four comfortable seats and a load volume of 455 liters make the A5 a comfortable long-distance tourer. The dynamic performance is supplied by FSI and TDI engines with rated power ranging from 125 to 195 kW (170 to 265 bhp). All engines share highly eco-friendly and efficient characteristics.

Engine options for the Audi A5 coupe include a 1.8 litre 170 hp petrol four cylinder, a 265-horsepower 3.2-liter petrol V6, a 2.7 litre 190 hp diesel, and a 240-hp 3.0-liter diesel V6. As well as the 4.2 litre V8 fitted to the Audi S5.

The engines' power can be transmitted by either front-wheel drive or quattro four-wheel drive and a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox. The running gear developed for the A5 is entirely new and combines agile handling with the utmost driving safety.

In designing the A5, integrated characteristics including the wide track, large wheels and short overhangs not only heighten its muscular appearance, they also form part of the formula that enhances its driving feel.

A key element of the Audi A5's rear running gear is its trapezoidal-link rear suspension with completely new kinematics. It provides a high degree of ride comfort combined with excellent directional stability. At both the front and rear, the main components of the suspension are made of aluminum. The generous dimensions of the brakes are designed to match the car's high performance ratings. The braking force can be precisely modulated and the kinematics of the new rear suspension significantly reduce the so-called braking dive effect.

The entire cockpit architecture of the Audi A5 is clearly focused on the driver and brings together the instruments and the centre console to form one unit. One example of the all-encompassing design approach can be found in the door panel trim, where the controls, inlays, armrest and stowage compartment combine to form one visually harmonious unit. The Audi A5 also has the screen of the MMI operating system positioned at an ergonomically perfect high position in the cockpit. A new advanced version of the acclaimed intuitive MMI operating logic makes the wide range of functions easy to understand.
