Mild Blue Lightning

Introduction and Outside

Step closer to observe the folds between the bonnet, front fenders and the doors, and marvel at how well the shutlines meet

The new Audi A5 Coupe is bigger and yet lighter than the car it replaces. 2017 sees a revamped Lexus RC Turbo, Infiniti’s Q60 and BMW laying its cards out about the 420i coupe.

All 2-doored with a 2.0 turbocharged unit, but the similarities end there for the Audi.

Our test car was the milder “Design” variant, with a lower-powered engine.


Front-end styling sees a lowered front grille, which is flatter and wider than the previous A5, and with creases and pinches beginning from here, and going their own way around the body, providing some very pretty-flowy styling. We simply loved how the pinch in the sheet metal on the coupe’s side profile creates a high shoulder-line, and also hides the point from where the front fenders meet the bonnet.

LED headlamp units for the A5 also tie in with the bodywork, with the edge daytime running LED, which also incorporates the front turn signal, being the visual starting point of the crease on the side profile.

Rear tail lamps this time round are heavily sculpted and broad, giving the car a sense of width (although the car is in fact slightly narrower), and also feature Audi’s signature dynamic turn signals.

Step closer to observe the folds between the bonnet, front fenders and the doors, and marvel at how well the shutlines meet.

For its 4,673mm of length, the wheelbase has been stretched, while front and rear overhangs have been reduced.
