Audi A5 gets new engines
Audi launched the A5 back in June. And it turn out to be a real success. Due to large request, Audi is now offering two new engines for the latest coupe: a 2.7 TDI and a 3.2 FSI, each combined with continuously variable multitronic transmission.
Both the petrol and the diesel version come in the guise of impressive six-cylinder engines with direct injection. The 2.7 TDI has a power output of 190 bhp. This model’s peak torque of 400 Nm is available at between 1,400 and 3,250 rpm. The high-tech diesel engine with a common-rail fuel injection system reaches the 100 km/h mark in just 7.6 seconds, and goes on to a top speed of 232 km/h. It uses an average of just 6.7 litres of diesel per 100 km.
The V6 petrol direct injection engine with a capacity of 3.2 litres is remarkable for its output of 265 bhp and its maximum torque of 330 Newton metres. This engine is equipped with the Audi valvelift system (AVS). Thanks to this variable valve lift control, fuel consumption can be considerably reduced and the efficiency of the engine further increased. The Audi A5 3.2 FSI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.6 seconds and has an average fuel consumption of 8.7 litres.
The latest two models in the A5 model line are available from 40,850 euros for the Audi A5 2.7 TDI and 44,000 euros for the 3.2 FSI.
