2018 Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets launched: Things you should know

The 2018 variant of Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets have finally unveiled. According to sources, the latest convertibles are not only lighter but also quicker. Moreover, they are designed in such a way that it looks more innovative than its previous counterparts. The new Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets will be available in the US as 2017 designs.

The new Audi A5 cabriolet features a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder paired with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

2018 Audi A5 and Audi S5 are lighter

The company disclosed that the new convertibles weigh 88 pounds less than their previous counterparts. This is because of the integration of a brand new MLB Evo architecture. The main purpose of this mechanism is to decrease the overall weight.

If you look at the wheelbase, it had grown marginally by 0.6-inch. However, the total length has increased by 1.9-inches. In the new model, you will find increased front shoulder space and rear legroom. You will be able to reduce material top in 15 seconds and closed in 18 seconds. This can be done even though the vehicle is moving at the speed of 31 miles per hour.

2018 Audi A5 and S5 features acoustic material

Both Audi A5 and S5 are equipped with a basic acoustic material top. This will form a number of layers, which ultimately reduces the sound. You can expand the 13-cubic-foot trunk by accurately folding rear seatbacks. Furthermore, you can open the trunk lid with the help of a wave of a foot under the rear bumper.

If you look at the interior of the newly launched Audi A5/S5 Cabriolets, you will be able to view that they are similar to the A4 series. Based on the latest technological trends, the company has integrated wireless gadget charging facility. The vehicles also ship with the new seat-belted microphones for continuing Bluetooth telephone calls.

You can expect the availability of the new Audi A5/S5 Cabriolets in the US the upcoming Spring season. The new Cabrio will most likely compete with the BMW 4-series retractable-hardtop convertible and the Mercedes-Benz C-class convertibles. As of writing this, we don’t have any information about the availability of the new 2018 Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets.
