2017 Audi A5 and Audi S5 Review

Jun 16, 2016 - 3:51 PM - by AutoGuide.com


The Audi A5 has always been one of the most handsome cars, not only in its segment, but in the whole market.

This second-generation 2017 Audi A5 model changes that slightly, but whatever you may think the new model lost in this redesign, it gains back in dramatically better driving dynamics.

The reactions to this redesign seem to be mostly negative ó as always, Audi is being accused of not pushing the envelope far enough and being too conservative. At first glance, this argument may have some merit, but if you put this new, second-generation model side-by-side with the previous gen, the differences are stark.

2017 Audi A5, S5 Debut with More Power, Lighter Weight

Jun 02, 2016 - 4:40 PM - by AutoGuide.com


The new 2017 Audi A5 and S5 coupes made their debut at a special event in Germany.

Instead of waiting for a major auto show, Audi opted to unveil the latest generation sports coupe at its headquarters in Ingolstadt, providing a more intimate setting for what it considers a design icon. The German automaker kicked off the event by celebrating the two-door coupe body style, bringing out a wide collection of historical Audi coupes leading up to the current Audi A5. It even brought in the Audi RS5 DTM race car that enjoyed great success last season.

Of course, the star of the event was the second-generation Audi A5 coupe, which the company considers the 'perfect fusion of form and function.' Like the new Audi A4, it appears at first glance that the Audi A5 received a facelift rather than changes you would expect for an entirely new generation. But given the success of the
