Audi A5/S5 Cabriolet U.S. Debut at New York Auto Show
NEW YORK, USA - April 9, 2009: Dynamic, confident and stunning – the all-new four-seater A5 and S5 Cabriolet from Audi combines a distinctly sporty character with the joy of open-top driving, refined comfort and everyday utility. The open-top A5 has a lightweight fabric top which opens in 15 seconds. Designed for visual elegance, the fabric top allowed the development of the segment-unique folding rear seat backs and a large pass-through between the luggage compartment and interior. As a result, storage volume increased to a generous 750 liters (26.49 cubic ft).
Audi also offers quattro permanent all-wheel drive as an upgrade in the 2.0 TFSI Tiptronic and as standard equipment on both the 3.2 FSI Tiptronic and S5 S tronic variants. The innovative sport differential, available on the S5 Cabriolet, variably distributes power between the rear wheels for even greater dynamics and driving pleasure. The perfect addition to this technology is the optional Audi drive select vehicle dynamics system, which enables the driver to customize the characteristics of the vehicle’s steering, suspension, and engine/throttle and transmission mapping.
