The new Audi A5 range will be expanded next month to include a torquey and high-performance 3.0 TDI V6 engine.
Expertly styled with a powerful presence, the A5 Coupe adopts Audi’s progressive design language, combining dynamism with elegance in a single package.
Now with Audi’s direct injection 3.0 TDI engine, the new A5 3.0 TDI quattro tiptronic boasts a very impressive 500 Nm of torque and 176 kW of power, satisfying even the sportiest of drivers.
The 3.0 TDI engine is the most-powerful V6 diesel engine produced by the company, and even with these impressive figures, the A5 TDI still manages to return excellent fuel economy of just 6.9 litres per 100km.
This excellent efficiency qualifies the A5 3.0 TDI quattro tiptronic for significant tax savings of more than $5000 under the Federal Government’s new luxury car tax ‘green clause’ exemption.
The new A5 3.0 TDI quattro tiptronic accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h in just 6.1 seconds and with a top speed of 250 km/h, it is a strong sports performer, assisted by its asymmetric and dynamic quattro all wheel drive system.
Mated to a sporty 6-speed tiptronic transmission, the result is a stunning sports coupe with top-level performance, high levels of safety and maximum grip on all road surfaces.
Audi Australia’s managing director, Mr Joerg Hofmann, says the introduction of the new A5 has seen a clear step forward for the brand in terms of desirability.
“The A5 Coupe is a stunning vehicle and has shown it is a serious contender in its class.
“With competitive pricing, advanced engine technology and elegant design, the A5 turns the heads of the luxury car-buying public.
“We also offer very efficient, high-performance engines which mean our customers can enjoy a real driver’s car without regret,” Mr Hofmann said.
“Audi continues to be a brand on the move in Australia and this new A5 3.0 TDI quattro model will help propel us towards yet another period of record sales growth.”
The 3.0 TDI quattro tiptronic is priced at RRP $93,894 and comes with a high level of standard equipment including 17-inch alloys, acoustic parking, Xenon headlights with LED daytime driving lights, Bluetooth mobile phone preparation and voice control to name a few.
