Audi A5 Convertible to debut in 2009
First rumors said the Convertible version of the Audi A5 will be unveiled this year at the Geneva Motor Show. But the show just ended and no sign of a A5 Convertible. Why? Because the A5 Convertible isn’t expected to debut until January 2009 at the Detroit Auto Show. It will be produced in Neckarsulm, Germany.
The A5 Convertible will feature a fabric hoods (not a metal one like the 3-Series). The fully electric top will offer excellent refinement, thanks to its multi-layered construction.
Under the bonnet we will see the same engines as in the coupe version:a 3.2-litre V6 petrol, plus 2.7-litre and 3.0-litre TDI diesels. The range will be topped off by the S5 Cabriolet, which will be powered by a 4.2-litre V8 and will feature quattro four-wheel drive.
