The A5 range is already one of the most desirable in the industry, and after the second generation was unveiled earlier this year, the cabriolet version also returns to complete the line-up.
The soft top A5 Cabriolet combines the mature coupe styling of the standard model with the elegance of a soft folding roof. The top can be opened in 15 seconds and folded back up in 18 seconds at speeds up to 31mph.
Convertibles are notorious for losing rigidity when the coupe model has its roof taken off, but that doesn’t happen here, as the A5 Cabriolet has been strengthened thanks to a lightweight geometric structure, which helps to maintain stability in the corners.
Available as both the A5 and S5 model, the engine and transmission line-up is extensive so you can find the drive you want. Ranging from a two-litre 187bhp diesel unit to the top end 349bhp three-litre six-cylinder engine fitted to the S5, which goes from 0-60mph in five seconds. A six-speed manual, seven-speed S tronic and eight-speed tiptronic are all available to the range.
The interior is up to the same standard you’d expect of Audi’s premium models and although you might think the folding roof takes up a lot of space, it maintains an excellent luggage area, and plenty of room for four people.
Interior accessories that come as standard include a seat belt microphone so you can control the voice command system even with the roof down, MMI infotainment system and Audi smartphone interface, which connects to both iOS and Android mobiles.
With 30 safety systems fitted to the A5, you will be safe on the road with accessories such as adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist and park assist, as well as traffic sign recognition and rear cross traffic assist.
