UK orders for the new Audi A5 and S5 models can be taken in September with deliveries starting at Christmas. The new generation Audi A5 and S5 Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet models will slip even more elegantly, nimbly and more cleanly through the air. The three ranges have Co2 emission reductions of up to 22% due to the revised engines and efficiency measures. The hydraulic power steering has been replaced with a new electromechanical unit that demands no engine input when the wheel is in the straight ahead position.

The interior of the new Audi A5 models has multiple updates including new steering wheels, including an option for a flat-bottomed wheel, new steering column stalks and narrow chrome clasps framing the control elements. Also updated are the ignition key, the selector lever for the automatic transmission, the buttons for the optional Audi drive select system and seat heating/ventilation and the air conditioning and multifunction steering wheel controls. The bezels on the instrument cluster and centre console have a new finish, and there is also a new selection of upholstery and inlays.

An exciting new option available across the board is a high specification mobile phone interface offering online services, which not only brings a Google-powered Points of Interest search and navigation using Google Earth images, but also creates a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) hotspot within the A5 enabling occupants to connect phones and computers to the internet wirelessly.
