We pushed the idea of a coupe further by extending the sloping roofline and stretching the wheelbase. But we didn’t break the law of attraction.
When you pay attention to detail, it pays off. Such is the case with our beautiful LED daytime running lights. These iconic lights are intended to help make you more visible to other drivers, but they’re designed so beautifully they attract attention for their style alone. It’s something that has us beaming with pride.
You can’t always predict what’s on the road ahead, but you can come prepared with our legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system. By sending power to all four wheels, quattro® increases handling performance in both wet and dry weather situations, giving you peace of mind no matter where life takes you.*
It’s nice to be in the driver’s seat, especially when your power options include a responsive, turbocharged TFSI® engine, a supercharged V6, or the torqued-up performance of a TDI® clean diesel engine. Wield all that power with an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission, and you’ll feel ready to conquer any road.
This standard feature enables Apple CarPlay™ and Google™ Android Auto™ interface, allowing you access to your compatible smartphone’s features, such as navigation, telephone, music and select third-party apps, and can be controlled through the MMI® interface, your voice control system or steering wheel controls.
Newly available on the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback, MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.
You can connect your Audi to your world with Audi connect®, an intuitive system that integrates sought after information like Google Earth™, weather conditions and traffic information. The Audi A5 Sportback comes standard with Audi connect CARE assistance and security services as well as a complimentary 6-month trial of Audi connect PRIME and Wi-Fi hotspot for passengers with Audi connect PLUS online services. Combined with in-vehicle 4G LTE® connectivity, getting connected has never been easier.
In the case of an impending collision, standard Audi pre sense® basic can intervene to prepare the vehicle for impact. This process includes beginning to close the side windows and panoramic sunroof, pretensioning the front safety belts, and preparing the brake system for a quicker response during an unexpected or emergency maneuver.
The available Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear uses radar sensors and optical warnings to help alert you if a vehicle is in your blind spot. Continuously monitoring surrounding vehicles and based on your own speed, the system can initiate emergency measures like closing the sunroof and windows and pre-tensioning seatbelts if a critical situation is detected. Illuminated LED lights help alert you and your passengers to vehicles or cyclists approaching from behind when the doors are opened.
