New A5 for order next month

Audi’s second generation A5 coupe will be delivered to first customers in Ireland in early 2017 at a starting price of €47,510 OTR, writes Brian Byrne.

The car will be available to order from mid-November with five engine variants, three turbocharged petrol and two diesels. Power options will range from 190-252hp.

The new car is lighter and more nimble than its predecessor, which was first launched in 2007.

There will be two trim levels, both with a higher level of equipment than on the outgoing car. These include Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED rear lights and an LED interior light pack.

A 3-month free trial of Audi Connect will be provided to new owners.
