Seeing as most of the Audi family has already gotten their facelifts, it seemed obvious that the A5 was the next in line to receive a fresh look.
Not surprisingly, Audi was thinking the same thing as it officially unveiled the 2012 line-up of the Audi A5 , one that includes a number of variants - coupe, sportback, and convertible - to bolster variety for the consumers.
The sportiest of the lot is the 2012 A5 Coupe, which features its fair share of cosmetic improvements as well as new powertrain options. The changes made on the 2012 A5 Coupe features a new lighting form that fits right in with what Audi has been doing with some of their latest releases. That’s right; no more of those rectangular, shoe-box looking headlights that made the A5 look stiff in the past.
As for the powertrain, the 2012 A5 Coupe has plenty of choices for the market, including a new 3.0-liter supercharged V6 version that produces 272 horsepower.
All in all, the 2012 A5 Coupe offers refreshed looks with improved driving dynamics and better fuel economy.
Audi could have done more, as far as we’re concerned, but we’re not complaining with the changes they made on the car. At the very least, the fresh new looks fits right in with the performance tweaks done on it. No complaints from us on that end.
