Audi A5 coupe gets two new engines

23 August 2007

Audi has added two new engines for A5 coupe buyers as part of an initiative to offer improved power and economy.

The first, a 2.7-litre V6 diesel engine, is already available in the A4 and A6 range, but it has an increased power output of 187bhp for the A5.

It powers the car from 0-62mph in 7.6sec and on to a top speed of 144mph. It manages 42.2mpg and emits 178g/km of carbon dioxide.

The new A5 2.7 TDI will cost from £31,640.

The second engine is the 3.2-litre petrol that's already available in the A4, A6 and A8 range, but with an increased power output of 262bhp.

The 0-62mph dash is managed in 6.6sec. The car has a 155mph top speed and returns 31.7mpg. It emits 207g/km of carbon dioxide.

The engine also benefits from new technology that boosts fuel economy by 10%.

Cars fitted with the engine will cost from £33,230.

Both engines will initially only be available with Audi's automatic CVT gearshift and front-wheel drive.

A5s with the new engines can be ordered now and will be delivered in late October.
