The Audi A5 range has been updated for 2020, with a mid-life facelift introducing a host of external tweaks, updated tech and new engines for the Coupe, Cabriolet and Sportback.

Audi A5 2020 update

Up front, the trio get a redesigned bumper that now includes larger air intakes. There’s a revised set of headlights too, while the rear lights have been subtly redesigned. There’s a fresh bumper design at the rear too.

LED headlights are now standard, although Matrix LED – which uses laser lights and dynamic sequencing – are available as an option. 12 shades of paint are available, including a new distinct shade of green.

Inside, the infotainment system has been updated. There’s a 10.1in touchscreen, while there’s no rotary push button as there has been on previous models. Audi’s virtual cockpit is standard across the range – with drivers benefitting from a vivid 12.3in display where you’d normally find the dials.

Audi connect infotainment services are installed on an upgradable three-month subscription basis, bringing numerous web-based features such as up-to-the-minute news, Google Earth mapping and Street View and flight, weather, traffic and fuel pricing information.

The biggest change under the bonnet is four of the petrol and diesel engines now use mild-hybrid tech. A belt alternator starter, which is connected to the crankshaft, recovers energy during deceleration and stores this in a compact lithium-ion battery. This increases efficiency and reduces emissions.

The range-topping Audi S5 now features a 3.0-litre diesel engine, offering a 0-62mph time of less than five seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph. All A5s are fitted with an automatic gearbox – either seven- or eight-speed.

Audi A5 2020 Cabriolet

As for the Cabriolet, its classic fabric top remains. It can be opened fully in 15 seconds up to speeds of 31mph, while its body features a host of reinforcements to ensure a more rigid body.

The new A5 range will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, ahead of orders being taken in late 2019. First deliveries are expected in spring 2020.
