The two-door 2018 Audi A5 Coupe offers sporty feel with room for passengers, luggage and flair.

The 2018 Audi A5 Coupe roars as a sports car, yet drives in luxury style. Some of the more exciting features include a 2.0-liter inner-cooled turbo-charged four-cylinder engine with 252-horsepower. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive and spirited seven-speed automatic. “When the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission grabs a gear and the engine finds the fat part of its power band, there’s a legitimate pants-kicking punt,” as stated in its first review in Car and Driver.

Other enticing characteristics of the sophisticated coupe include electronic sliding seats, virtual cockpit, optional Bang and Olufsen audio system, and Google Earth aerial display. It’s clear this vehicle was built to please the typical Audi roadster. Visit Audi Santa Barbara today to learn more about 2018 the Audi A5 Coupe.

One of Audi’s Best Creations

The Audi A5 Coupe offers an economical 34 mpg highway driving and 24 mpg city. Easy to rev up, the sleek design reaches high speeds in smooth elegance. The Audi A5 Coupe’s surprisingly spacious interior seats four to five people with ease. Trunk space follows suit with plenty of room for loading. This sophisticated design with lustrous appeal causes Audi designer Walter de Silva to boast about his latest version of the Audi A5 deeming it, “…The most beautiful car [he’s] ever designed.”

Capitalizing on Safety and Style

Audi meets and exceeds the brand’s usual industry-leading safety standards with the 2018 Audi A5 Coupe. It contains side seat mounted airbags, SIDEGUARD curtain first and second row overhead airbags (safe for children in car seats), driver and passenger knee airbags, and an airbag occupancy sensor for optimal passenger safety. In addition, the A5 offers 4-wheel anti-lock brakes and driveline traction control. Audi’s consistent dedication to passenger safety is one of many reasons Audi Santa Barbara is proud to be an authorized Audi dealer.

The brand’s signature style is, as always, presented with the perfect balance of competence and grace. The Audi A5’s details ignite Audi enthusiasts with two new vibrant colors: Tango Red metallic and Gotland Green metallic (in addition to its original 14 exterior colors). In the interior, the vehicle comes standard with Carbon Atlas and Magma Red Nappa leather with Granite Gray stitching producing a sports car-like ambience. LED exterior lights in front and back illuminate this beauty along with modern spoke wheels that come in sizes from 17 to 20 inches, and the beautifully crafted dual exhaust outlets adding to its shine.

Audi is once again the leading recipient of a Kelley Blue Book award for 2015. Each year, Kelley Blue Book honors new vehicles and brands with the lowest projected ownership costs with the 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. The awards take into account vehicle ownership costs of the first five years including factors such as fuel costs and depreciation values and ranks models within each class and category accordingly.

Determining the Best Value

Other costs considered in the report include insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees and taxes. This information is gathered and presented as part of Kelly Blue Book’s commitment to providing helpful information for consumers to consider when preparing to make a car purchase. The cost of ownership report breaks down ownership details and identifies brands and models with the lowest overall projected costs.

A5 Pulls Ahead of the Competition

This year, the Audi A5 was named as the winner of the 2015 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award in the “Luxury Car” category. This category includes competitors such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, and Lexus. Audi representatives credit quality engineering, efficiency, and powerful performance as top reasons the Audi A5 comes with a low cost of ownership and is so popular with drivers. For example, the A5 Coupe achieves 22mpg city/ 31 highway and the A5 Cabriolet achieves 20mpg in the city and 28mpg on the highway, allowing drivers to spend less time at the fuel center and more time on the road.

In addition to low ownership costs, the Audi A5 provides exceptional driving performance and safety. The current 2015 A5 features a 2.0 TFSI® turbocharged four-cylinder engine with available Tiptronic® automatic transmission. This ferocious engine delivers 220hp and 258lb-ft of torque so drivers can enjoy powerful performance and handling. The design features sophisticated technology such as standard Xenon headlights, dynamic range adjustment, LED taillights, and S line exterior design available on the A5 Premium and A5 Premium Plus model packages. The model line includes the A5, S5 Coupe, and S5 Cabriolet models.
