Perfect workmanship with optimal functionality – the new A5 Coupé takes these Audi-typical properties to the highest degree. High-quality materials are painstakingly crafted and can be showcased by the optional ambient lighting with 30 adjustable colors. The horizontal architecture of the instrument panel creates a wide sense of space.
The new A5 Coupé has become even more generous in virtually every dimension. The interior of the new Audi A5 Coupé has gained 17 millimeters (0.7 in) in length. Shoulder room (plus 26 millimeters (1.0 in)) and headroom (plus 12 (0.5 in)) for both the driver and front passenger have also increased. Knee room in the back has even increased by 23 millimeters (0.9 in). The luggage compartment offers 10 liters (0.4 cu ft) more volume than before. It now holds a best-in-segment 465 liters (16.4 cu ft).
The seats in the Audi A5 Coupé have been redeveloped from the ground up and for the first time include the option of a pneumatic massage function. One standard feature offering additional convenience to the driver and front passenger is the seat belt height adjustment for the front seats, including power belt feeds. The head restraints of the anatomically correct front seats are not only height-adjustable, their distance to the back of the head is also variable. Power adjustment of both the seats and the lumbar support is available as an option. Audi offers heating for many of the seat choices, and the sport seats are available with optional ventilation.
There is a front center armrest – sliding and with a storage compartment – large door pockets, two cup holders and a new, closed storage compartment beneath the rotary light switch. The new Audi A5 Coupé has two seats in the rear plus a center armrest.
Functional and sporty:
The steering wheels have also been redesigned. Because the driver airbag is a compact micromodule, the steering wheel allows a better view of the instrument cluster. There is a broad range of steering wheels, beginning with the three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with a round impact absorber. Customers can choose from such options as a heated leather rim, a rim flattened at the bottom and the plus option for the multifunction feature. Shift paddles are standard with automatic transmissions. All steering wheels have a frame of weight-saving magnesium.
in the interior
Lightweight construction is used throughout the interior. For example, the substructure of the front seats is made of high-strength steel. The support structure for the through-loading facility in the rear seat is made of magnesium. Compared with the previous model, the weight of the seats has been reduced by eight kilograms (17.6 lb). A weight-optimized carpet, an aluminum brake pedal and foamed defroster ducts make the car a total of a further four kilograms (8.8 lb) lighter.
The new A5 Coupé comes standard with white LEDs in the interior. The driver can operate the reading lights via sensors. At night, the optional interior lighting package or the optional ambient lighting set small accents in the interior. With the latter, the MMI can be used to choose from 30 colors, in several profiles and in separate zones, including the cup holders. If desired, the colors can also change depending on the mode chosen in Audi drive select. In the door trim, narrow LED light guides generate dramatic contour lighting.
Choice materials and colors emphasize the generous dimensions and elegance of the interior. The palette offers numerous new shades and combinations. Besides black, the instrument panel can be divided into two color zones with the trim line design: a dark upper area and a light lower zone, such as granite gray-atlas beige or granite gray-rock gray. The Audi design selection equipment package also includes the color combination wapiti brown-rock gray. The colors of the lower zone of the instrument panel can be found again in the seat upholstery.
The first option level following the standard cloth upholstery includes one exclusive cloth each for the trim lines design and sport. A robust leather/artificial leather combination is also available. The Milano leather and the Alcantara/leather combination (only for sport seats) are elegant alternatives. The fine Nappa leather with contrasting stitching and piping is the top equipment version.
The large, three-dimensional decorative surfaces are a significant feature of the interior’s appearance. Alternatives are a variety of aluminum inlays as well as dark walnut, oak natural gray and black piano finish. The generous use of high-quality inlays across the entire width with a smooth transition to the long doors gives the driver and front passenger the sense of being embraced without being constrained. At the same time, the horizontal application strips clearly align the interior and divide the instrument panel.
S line sport package
and Audi design selection
With the S line sport package, the interior is black or rotor gray. The sport seats are covered with a combination of leather and cloth; options include an Alcantara/leather combination or fine Nappa leather. The front seat backrests are embossed with the rhombus S. The decorative surfaces are made of brushed aluminum, piano finish or gray oak. The three-spoke sport leather steering wheel and the illuminated door sill trims bear rhombus S emblems. The stainless-steel pedals and footrest as well as the floor mats with contrasting stitching round out the sporty appearance.
The new, design-oriented counterpart to the S line sport package for the interior is the Audi design selection. The instrument cluster is available in the color combinations granite gray-Atlas beige, granite gray-rock gray, wapiti brown-rock gray or all in black. The seat upholstery matches the color of the lower zone of the instrument panel. The colors cedar brown and Arras red are also available. Upholstery materials correspond to those of the S line sport package. The steering wheel is also available in color-coordinated black, granite gray or wapiti brown. Customers can choose from inlays in aluminum Trimaran, black piano finish and gray natural oak. Ambient lighting with 30 adjustable colors supplements the Audi design selection. Both packages have illuminated door sill trims up front.
the continuous air vent strip
A continuous air vent strip and the plunging center console underscore the impression of a floating instrument panel in the new Audi A5 Coupé. With the deluxe automatic air-conditioning, the broad band of air vents allows indirect ventilation while increasing the volume of air circulated. The interior can be air-conditioned in three separate zones; the rear passengers have their own control unit with a digital display. Audi also offers an auxiliary heating system, which quickly warms the interior. In connection with the optional Audi connect safety & service, the customer can conveniently program the auxiliary heating using the Audi MMI connect app.
Both the standard single-zone system and the triple-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning have been completely redesigned. Both systems consume little energy thanks to efficient solutions for the fan motor and fresh air supply, an efficient cooling circuit and highly flexible controls. They also provide extremely high air quality: In both fresh air and recirculating operation, an active-carbon combination filter removes the smallest particulate matter. The control panel of the automatic air conditioning is another highlight, particularly with the optional deluxe automatic air conditioning, which has the digital temperature displays integrated into the control dials. Just a few buttons and dials are sufficient for convenient control. When a finger approaches one of the capacitive rocker switches, its function is shown enlarged on the dark LCD display and selected.
Audi offers a panoramic glass sunroof for even more fresh air. In the new A5 Coupé, it spans the entire width of the roof. It is nine percent larger than the previous model, and for the first time it can be opened with a tilt-and-slide function (752 x 278 millimeters (29.6 x 10.9 in) = size of opening).
Spacious and practical:
the luggage compartment
The combination of aesthetic design and good use of space plays an important role in the new Audi A5 Coupé, too. In the base configuration, the luggage compartment offers a volume of 465 liters (16.4 cu ft), 10 liters (0.4 cu ft) more than with the previous model.
The standard rear seat backrest is split 40:20:40 and can be folded down to the seat cushions using a lever on the side of the luggage compartment The load-area width measures exactly one meter (3.3 ft). The cuboid dimensions make the luggage compartment outstandingly practical.
Audi also offers the two-door coupé with optional sensor control for opening the luggage compartment lid: A proximity sensor in the rear bumper reacts to a kicking motion. The hatch unlocks and opens automatically if the optional convenience key is detected.
The trailer hitch unlocks electronically at the push of a button. The new Audi A5 Coupé is certified to tow loads of up to 2,100 kilograms (4,629.7 lb) (with an eight percent gradient).
