5 reasons to buy the 2013 Audi A5

1. Powertrain options

If you're looking for a classy coupe or convertible for commuting or nights on the town, the 2013 Audi A5 offers several powertrain configurations for customized performance. All models feature a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that makes 211 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Coupe models come standard with a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive (an eight-speed automatic transmission is optional), and cabriolet body styles feature a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. Want all-wheel drive while enjoying an open-air experience? The 2013 A5 cabriolet offers an available all-wheel-drive system that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

2. Strong handling

The 2013 A5's Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system ensures extra grip and control in inclement weather and low-traction situations. It inspires confidence by distributing power to all four wheels to maximize acceleration and cornering on wet and dry roads. The 2013 A5 combines this road-hugging traction with a comfortable ride and exceptional body control. Whether you choose the coupe or convertible, you'll look forward to driving the 2013 Audi A5.

3. Stylish design

The 2013 Audi A5 features updated exterior and interior styling, making it a handsome addition to any driveway. The exterior boasts a restyled grille and headlights to match the body's bold angular design, while its stance is strong and aggressive. Inside the cabin, you'll find an artfully crafted interior featuring beautiful stitching and textures. All coupe models also come standard with a panoramic tilting sunroof, giving the cockpit an airy feeling with more headroom.

4. Roominess

A unique element of the 2013 Audi A5's design is the standard split-folding rear seatback in coupe and convertible models. This feature is convenient when making trips to stock up at the warehouse store or transporting larger items. With all seats in place, the 2013 A5 offers generous cargo capacity with 12.2 cu-ft of volume in the coupe body style and 10.2 cubes in the convertible. Plenty of space for groceries, golf clubs, and shopping bags.

5. Impressive infotainment

You won't mind rush-hour commuting in the 2013 Audi A5. Premium and Premium Plus trims feature a ten-speaker audio system with a CD player and MP3 playback capability to enjoy a concert-like sound, while Prestige coupe trims deliver more energy with a Band & Olufsen® 14-speaker audio system. Bluetooth® wireless technology (standard in Premium Plus and Prestige) allows you to make and take calls hands-free. Finally, the Audi MMI® navigation system with voice controls (standard in Prestige) will help you find your way around the city to feel stress-free at your destination.
