Car reviews - Audi - A5 - Cabriolet range


New all-quattro cabriolet range goes upmarket as second Audi A5 two-door arrives

14 Aug 2009

AUDI’S tradition of building beautiful soft-top two-doors continues with the A5 Cabriolet, which replaces the A4 Cabriolet after two short-lived generations and emerges as the second two-door A5 bodystyle derivative after the all-new A5 Coupe. The third A5 model, the Sportback, will have five doors. Three variants are again on offer in an all-automatic, all-quattro soft-top range that stays true to its roots despite the shift to folding hardtop convertibles by many of Audi’s luxury rivals. The A5 Cabriolet range comes with three direct-injection engines, led by the A5 2.0 TFSI ($94,900) and extending to the A5 3.0 TDI turbo-diesel ($112,500) and flagship A5 3.2 FSI ($116,500), making it considerably more expensive than the A4 Cabriolet it replaces.
Model release date: 1 August 2009 to 1 January 2012

Previous model

A4 Cabriolet

Released: June 2006
Ended: July 2009
Family Tree: A5

THE third modern Audi Cabriolet was based on the B7-series A4 sedan and replaced the first (B6-series) A4-based Cabriolet in Australia after just three years, in July 2006. The MkII A4 Cabriolet was launched with 120kW 1.8-litre turbocharged and 188kW 3.2-litre V6 petrol engines mated to six-speed Multitronic CVT transmissions. The latter was discontinued in October 2007, when S-Line versions of the 3.2 FSI quattro V6 and newer 2.0TFSI direct-injection turbo-four became available alongside the entry-level 1.8T.

Prices ranged between $77,000 and $113,000 when the A4 Cabriolet was replaced by the A5 Cabriolet in August 2009.
