The BMW 3 Series and the Audi A5 are two of our favorite cars and don’t ask us which one we prefer, because we change our minds every 15 minutes. Both cars are fascinating. And here’s a car we’ve been expecting ever since we knew about the A5: the Audi A5 Cabrio. Spotted by AutoExpress spies close to Audi’s headquarters in Germany, the car has some pretty heavy camouflage on it, so we can’t really tell what are the styling mods it got.
However, what we do know is that the car, which will probably debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show, will go on sale next year, with the first deliveries in UK scheduled for November and at a starting price of £33,000 (47,400 EUR or $67,250). It won’t have a folding metal roof, but, as Audi got us used, a fabric one which, besides reducing costs, will make the A5 Cabrio a more practical car, with a lot of luggage space.
The Audi A5 Cabrio will be offered with the same engine choices as the Coupe: a 3.2 liter V6 petrol and two diesels, a 2.7 liter and a 3.0 liter TDI. The top of the line model will be the S5 Cabrio, powered by a 4.2-litre V8 and quattro four-wheel drive system.
