07 Aug 2020 | Local News : Singapore

Presented during the Audi Live virtual car launch in Singapore, the new Audi A5 range - the Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet - is now available in Singapore. The facelifted car features a new, tauter look, a cutting-edge MMI touch operating concept, and mild hybrid technology that offers greater comfort while also reducing fuel consumption. 

Elements of Audi's new design language characterise the sporty aesthetics of the updated Audi A5. The Singleframe with the honeycomb grille is now flatter and wider. Meanwhile, ventilation slits above the grille are reminiscent of the classic Audi Sport quattro from 1984.

The significantly revised exterior, particularly at the front end, exudes an even more powerful resolve
A bold blade forms the lower edge of the bumper, which features larger air inlets. A new sill provides for a slimmer appearance when viewed from the side, and a diffuser insert with trapezoidal tailpipes makes the back of the car look wider.

All variants of the A5 roll off the assembly line with LED head lights and LED rear lights now feature dynamic turn indicators as standard equipment for Singapore. On request, Matrix LED head lights can be ordered.

With its new MMI touch system, the highly connected Audi A5 offers a user experience similar to a contemporary smartphone. A 10.1-inch touch display with acoustic feedback replaces the rotary pushbutton used in previous models. The graphics are clean and reduced, plus the menu structure reflects the expectations of the user.

The MMI search is based on free text input and returns relevant hits very rapidly. Natural-language voice control understands many formulations from everyday speech. In Singapore, the range comes standard with the top of the line MMI navigation plus infotainment control centre.

The driver controls the full HD, 12.3-inch display of the Audi virtual cockpit via the multifunction steering wheel 
New functions also make navigation intelligent and intuitive by suggesting routes previously driven. The myAudi app connects the car with the customer's smartphone.

The standard personalisation allows the creation of as many as seven different user profiles for storing personal settings and preferences. The updated Audi A5 uses a new main unit with increased computing power - the third-generation Modular Infotainment platform (MIB 3). With functions on demand, the customer will be able to access their car functions at any time using the myAudi app.

The updated Audi A5 range is launched in Singapore with an updated 2.0-litre TFSI engine in two states of tune, 148bhp and 187bhp, exclusively paired with an efficient and direct shifting seven-speed S tronic transmission.

Both powertrains feature the mild hybrid system (MHEV) integrated into the 12-volt electrical system. Central to the mild hybrid system is the Belt Alternator Starter (BAS), which is connected to the crankshaft.

Horizontal lines dominate the interior in the updated Audi A5
The Audi A5 is able to coast with the engine switched off between 55km/h and 160km/h. During this time, the lithium-ion battery powers the electrical consumers. The start-stop range operates from as high as 22km/h.

When the accelerator is depressed, the BAS restarts the engine quickly and smoothly. When stopped, this happens while the brake pedal is still depressed as soon as the vehicle in front begins to move. In real-world, everyday operation, the MHEV system can reduce fuel consumption by up to 0.3L/100km according to Audi's measurements. 

The members of the updated Audi A5 range are now available at Audi Centre Singapore. All prices are inclusive of COE and VES.
