Ahead of its launch later this month, Audi Ireland has announced pricing and specifications for the innovative Audi A5 Cabriolet. This is the model that completes the new generation of the A5 family.

With room for four people and a fully automatic soft top, the redesigned model is kitted out with the latest technology, including driver assistance systems and seat belt microphones.

Characterised by sleek lines and a flatter, sportier look the soft top fits perfectly and delivers outstanding aero acoustics thanks to effective insulation. It has a new one-touch opening function that makes operating the hood much easier: the top fully opens in 15 seconds and closes in 18 seconds, even while driving up to 50 km/h.

Two trim lines will be made available for the new A5 Cabriolet in Ireland – SE and S Line. The Audi A5 Cabriolet comes with a wide range of equipment. Standard features include xenon headlights, Audi drive select and partial leather seats. You also get Audi MMI radio plus with 7-inch colour display, seat belt microphones and the one-touch opening function for the soft top. The new lines concept with various equipment packages enhances the scope for individual design expression.

The body of the new Audi A5 Cabriolet is the strongest in its class and yet is among the lightest in the segment. Thanks to a smart mix of materials and lightweight design, compared to its predecessor model, engineers have increased the car’s rigidity by another 40 percent and reduced its weight by up to 40 kilograms, making the Cabriolet even more agile.
