Interior and exterior specs

The new Audi A5 comes in three styles: the coupe, convertible as well as the hatchback. The design of the new model is mostly based on the current one though it is expected to be lighter, having lost around one hundred kilograms, and more compatible with alternative power trains. The weight loss will make it easier to handle and more flexible on the road. Externally, the wheel base is wider on this model giving more space on the inside. In terms of lights, at the front the new Audi A5 will look like its predecessor. The rear will be a bit different though, with different tail lights, a rectangular shaped exhaust and a different looking bumper. The front will retain the single-frame grille that has become its trademark and incorporate bigger air intakes. It has a very modern design and look that will give a fresh look to the young buyers in the market.
