The Next-Gen 2018 Audi A5
There are lots of reasons to go with the new 2018 Audi A5, such as the brand-new engine. New under the hood is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder with more power, pushing out 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. You’ll appreciate having all this power when you’re behind the wheel during a test drive here at Southgate Audi.
The A5 comes standard with all-wheel drive, but you’ve got a couple choices here: you can opt for an A5 with the dual-clutch automatic transmission, and you’ll be able to enjoy the traditional, full-time AWD system with a center differential. But if you go for the manual gearbox, we think you’ll really enjoy the revised Quattro with Ultra system which outs the center differential and sends power to the rear wheels only when needed. This intelligent system will absolutely help save you fuel at the pumps.
A big perk to owning a 2018 Audi A5. One of the highlights here is the feature of full braking in the instance of an impending crash–a feature that can greatly mitigate damage or even help you avoid a crash altogether.
You’ll also appreciate having access to the available features of pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and the lane-keeping assistance system. All of these safety and driver-assistance features are the most modern technologies in the market, offering enhancements we’ll hopefully be seeing a lot more of in the future!
All these driver-assistance features help reassure drivers on the road, so they know the 2018 Audi A5 has a backup plan for many incidents. But there are also many advantages here relating to driver convenience; for example, the available traffic jam assist system relieves the driver of having to brake, accelerate, and steer in heavy traffic.
The driver-convenience features are prevalent in the cabin, too, the most obvious of which is the Virtual Cockpit. A huge 12.3-inch extended instrument cluster gives you all the most pertinent details about our A5’s status. The Virtual Cockpit also features MMI touch, which lets you write commands by touch. Or perhaps you’d be interested in the head-up display which projects your vehicle status onto the bottom of your windshield?
You can tailor your 2018 Audi A5 to your liking, and you might enjoy the optional Bang & Olufsen premium audio system with its 19 speakers and 750 watts.
