For 2010, the A5 gets a new standard 4-cylinder engine that costs $4,700 less than the previously most affordable A5 3.2 quattro, and the 3.2 is no longer offered with a manual transmission. The third generation of Audi's multi-media interface (MMI) is also installed in the A5 family for 2010, including 3D map topography and Sirius traffic. The model lines for the A5 and S5 are expanded in 2010 with the introduction of 4-seat Cabriolet models for both, and the adoption of Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims. Premium and Premium Plus models get new LED taillights.
Styling and design; beautiful, well-appointed interior; performance in the S5 model; ride comfort; quattro's all-weather traction; fuel-efficiency in the 2.0 model
With the addition of Cabriolet models for 2010, Audi has a full line of coupes and convertibles ranging from fuel-efficient turbo 4-cylinder to powerful V8 and turbo V6 models. The A5 and S5 coupes hit the target on design and styling--they're quite possibly the best-looking 2-door touring cars inside and out. Interior comfort and ride quality is also top notch, with the coupe making an especially good long-distance cruiser for two. Also, Audi says that the A5 and S5 Cabriolet models have best-in-class trunk space.
