Sideways, the car is recognizable and differs from its predecessor only in details, and if you evaluate the exterior in a complex way, then due to the two-door performance, the A5 looks a lot athletic and faster than the A4.

The overall length and wheelbase of the A5 is smaller, and the track in front and behind is wider. At the same time technically both machines have the same MLB evo platform.

Neat Audi Interior

Interior in many respects repeats fresh Audi models. First of all, his lightness rushes into his eyes. Nothing extra, especially if you hide the screen of the multimedia system MMI-system.

Then there will be only the deflectors and the air conditioning unit. The architecture of the panel is such that visually it seems that its main part is suspended in the air, and the central tunnel grows out of the depth.
