Audi Reveals Redesigned 2017 A5 Coupe Live in Germany

By Philly Murtha, June 02, 2016
Today, Audi unveiled its redesigned, athletic, and elegant 2017 A5 Coupe to the accompaniment of electronica dance music and a 3D light show. Streaming live from Audi’s Forum museum in Ingolstadt, Germany, the new compact premium coupe was welcomed during an event emceed by Austrian TV host and actress Mirjam Weichselbraun with introductory remarks from Audi Chairman Professor Rupert Stadler.

The live online world premiere began with an onstage retrospective of Audi coupes over seven decades that was completed with the arrival of the factory-tuned Audi RS5 DTM race car piloted by Swedish driver Matthias Eckstrom. Audi’s 2017 Audi A5 Coupe and sibling Audi S5 next erupted onstage in a special-effect cloud of smoke to perform a choreographed routine.

Specs and pricing details for the latest generation of Audi’s best-selling A5 Coupe will be released closer to model launch later this year. Audi’s 2017 A5 compact premium car, which is the first redesign since 2008, seats 4 and comes with standard leather, power seats. The new A5 Coupe is built on Volkswagen Group’s new MLB Evo lightweight steel and aluminum platform.

The 2017 A5 Coupe will arrive with a choice of engines in Europe, but in the U.S. likely will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that produces 252 horsepower when matched with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. An Audi engineering official points out that the new model is 20% more powerful and fuel-efficient than the prior model. Audi officials suggest that trendsetters can first order the A5 Coupe beginning in mid-July.
