The Audi A5 receives some updates and new features that come as standard or are available for the 2023 model year. Audi is reportedly looking to showcase itself as a leader in the luxury segment with its quality and technology in the 2023 lineup.
Some of the upgrades to the A5 model line include standard matrix-designed LED headlights. The Premium Plus trim on all A5 and S5 models include a Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound. Now standard on the A5 Coupe, A5 Cabriolet, and A5 Sportback 45 is 18-inch 5-double-spoke design wheels. The Black optic package on the A5 Coupe and Sportback 45 now comes with more black features, such as the rear lip spoiler and exhaust tips. Similarly, the S5 Coupe and Sportback’s Black optic package in the Premium Plus and Prestige trims also now has a black rear lip spoiler and exhaust tips, as well as black Audi rings and badges.
The A5 Cabriolet now has an S line exterior, gray oak natural wood inlays, illuminated door sill inlays, and sport front seats as standard. The S5 gets an available Audi Sport interior package with a black interior, red contrast stitching, and RS carbon inlays. Lastly, there have been color updates. Chronos gray takes the place of Quantum gray for the A5 Coupe, Sportback 45, Cabriolet, and S models. Ascari blue is added while Sonoma green and Turbo blue are removed from the RS 5 Coupe and Sportback.
Despite there being nine models in the A5 lineup, there are only three powertrain options. The A5 Coupe S line, A5 Sportback 40, A5 Sportback 45, and A5 Cabriolet S line all share a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine with an S tronic transmission. The RS 5 Coupe and RS 5 Sportback both share a 2.9-liter, 6-cylinder engine with a Tiptronic transmission. Finally, the S5 Coupe, S5 Sportback, and S5 Cabriolet share a 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder engine with a Tiptronic transmission.
Which safety features come standard or available is going to depend on the model, trim level, and package chosen by the consumer. For instance, the A5 and S5 both now have adaptive cruise control as a part of the Convenience package.
