The World-Class Audi A5 - Three Distinct Styles, One Amazing Car

No other car company elicits the "wow" factor quite like Audi. Every new model in their lineup is a head-turner, and each one appeals to a different type of North Carolina personality. If your personality is telling you that you must test drive a fun, easy-handling, stunning compact car, check out the collection of new Audi A5 cars we have available here on our new car lot at Audi Cape Fear.

Traditionally a two-door coupe or convertible, our Audi A5 received a makeover recently, and it now comes in a stylish, four-door Sportback option, too. Regardless of style, though, the Audi A5 is an impressive, finely-crafted vehicle with the power and features our customers in the Wilmington, NC area are looking for.

Test Drive the A5

Audi A5 Premium

Even though the Premium trim level is at the bottom of the range, it would be wrong to assume that this is a bare-bones trim level. The A5 Premium has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $42,600 and comes with plenty of luxury features, a solid choice for those that have found everything they need in this trim level and don't want to spend more on what they don't need.

Some of the many features that are included in the Premium level are:

  • Both Audi pre sense® basic and Audi pre sense® city
  • 7.0-inch MMI® center infotainment display
  • Leather seating surfaces
  • Audi smartphone interface with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
  • BLUETOOTH® wireless technology preparation for compatible devices

The Audi A5 Style and Performance

All three styles of the A5, including the sporty two-door Coupe, the fun-to-drive, two-door convertible called the Cabriolet, and the new four-door hatchback-style that Audi calls a Sportback, come equipped with a responsive, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It's rated for 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, and comes with standard all-wheel drive.

A dual-clutch, seven speed automatic transmission is also standard. But, drivers who prefer to be in charge of their car's shifting, and who choose the coupe-style model, can opt for a six-speed manual transmission instead.

The 2018 Audi A5 Comes in Three Trim Levels but Offers Endless Possibilities

What makes the Audi A5 a standout car among its competitors? Perhaps it's the A5 model's simple but sophisticated interior design, featuring innovative infotainment amenities and spacious cabin. It could be attributed to the A5 model's 5-Star Safety Rating that was awarded by the National Highway Traffic Association's New Car Assessment Program. 

There are more than enough reasons to consider the new Audi A5 for your next car, but which trim level is right for you? That answer depends on your lifestyle and your own personal preferences, but to make it bit easier to judge, let's explore some of what each trim level has to offer.

Tech Features and Pampering Amenities on the Audi A5

With three trim levels for drivers in the Leland and Southport area to choose from, expect every model in the lineup to come with an incredible list of features, with more added as you move up the levels. Regardless of the Audi A5 style you choose, the breakdown includes:

  • Audi A5 Premium, which comes with standard heated side mirrors, xenon headlights, a sunroof, keyless entry, keyless ignition, automatic windshield wipers, power-adjustable front seats, smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Audi's signature infotainment system MMI, an automatically-dimming rearview mirror, and a three-zone climate control.
  • Audi A5 Premium Plus, adds exterior mirrors that are automatically dimming, heated front seats, memory functions for the driver's seat, and satellite radio.
  • Audi A5 Prestige, which tops off the list with an upgraded audio system, a navigation system, and the ability to control certain vehicle functions via a smartphone app.

Plus, there are a number of optional add-ons Wilmington drivers can use to customize their Audi even further, including ventilated sport seats, a heated steering wheel, larger wheels, and a sport suspension.

Audi A5 Premium Plus

The Goldilocks effect may come into play when you consider the Premium Plus trim level: you have all the that the Premium level has as well as some additional features but a price that is not at as high as the Prestige level. This trim level has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $45,600.

Some of the standout features include:

  • Audi connect® CARE assistance and security services
  • Power-adjustable, auto-dimming, power-folding, heated exterior side mirrors with memory
  • Full LED headlights
  • Front and rear acoustic sensors
  • Driver seat memory


The Audi A5 - Keeping You Safe Behind the Wheel

Audi doesn't just equip the A5 with the convenience features you want, they also make sure this vehicle can get you to your destination safely. Every A5 is equipped with innovative safety technologies, with more available as you move up trims. In addition to the standard rearview camera and low-speed forward collision warning and mitigation system, safety features to be on the lookout for include:

  • A top-down parking camera system
  • Automatic high beam control
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Rear collision mitigation
  • Blind spot monitor
